  • Nicknamed "Inferno," this Hellcat-powered 6x6-a veteran of the 2018 SEMA show-is up for auction June 28–29.
  • It features a pass-through differential; all three diffs can be locked for true six-wheel drive.
  • It measures more than 19 feet in length, with its Jeep Wrangler body lengthened by over 35 inches.

It's hard to make a grand entrance these days, what with every here-today/gone-today celebrity of the moment rolling up to the Red Carpet Lobster in a Bentley or a Benz. Thankfully, the team over at Exotic Custom Motorsports has your back with this Hellcat-powered Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 6x6 pickup. Not only stylish, it's practical, too. Its bed is the perfect storage area for all the cases of the black-market original-recipe Four Loko you just picked up in Tijuana (it's still available in China, not that you heard that from us).

Nicknamed "Inferno," this six-wheeled beast is based on a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 75th Anniversary Hard Rock Edition. Power comes from a supercharged 6.2-liter Dodge Hellcat V-8 engine that is rated at 707 or 750 horsepower, depending on whether you go by the factory figure supplied by the Barrett-Jackson auction house or the 750-hp number quoted by Exotic Custom Motorsports, the Inferno's creator. An automatic transmission handles the gear swaps, and the bonus axle is fitted with brakes to help ensure it stops when asked. A true 6x6 with three live axles, the Inferno has a custom-built driveline that allows for the locking of all three Ford nine-inch-based 4.10 gearsets; lock the pair of rear axles, and it'll light up all four wheels in the quest for traction and attention.

A five-inch lift kit, King off-road shocks, and 35-inch tires mounted on 20-inch wheels keep the Inferno riding high. The custom-formula, one-off Inferno Red finish is combined with a custom carbon-fiber fiber grille and wheel-arch extensions, plus a custom-built roof rack with front and rear LED light bars for an unmistakable profile. Custom steel bumpers feature tow hooks and a front winch to make sure everyone gets out alive or something boastworthy like that. Interior mods include a fully custom and surprisingly restrained leather interior.

Currently showing just 125 miles on the odometer, this is one Inferno that is sure to burn brightly wherever it goes. If you've got the cash, ego, and desire to make children squeal and grownups turn green with envy or possibly convulse with laughter, make sure to register to bid on the Inferno when it crosses the block at the 2019 Barrett-Jackson Northeast auction to be held June 26–29 in Connecticut.
