Specifically, it’s a 1943 Buick M18 Hellcat. It’s a tank that was originally designed to “seek, strike, destroy,” during World War II. And if you just so happened to be looking for a new toy, there just so happens to be an M18 Hellcat for sale in Massachusetts.
For the price of $250,000, you can get an almost fully functional military tank, according to Hemmings.
The “breech has been demilled,” essentially meaning that the gun on the Hellcat doesn’t work. Then again, who needs to shoot things when you’re driving arguably one of the fastest tanks for its time? Ok, maybe it would be a little more fun, but we all know this tank will more than likely end up on display anyways.
It would be a shame if that’s all it does, as the Buick Hellcat’s 450 horsepower 9-cylinder engine was just rebuilt back in 2013, and apparently it runs like a charm.
