The man behind the YouTube channel Omi in a Hellcat was sentenced to prison back in March for what the U.S. Department of Justice called a "wide-ranging copyright infringement scheme." Now, the car collection that starred in his YouTube channel with 818,000 subscribers is up for auction through the U.S. Marshals.
The collection totals 32 cars and a few dozen more bikes and side-by-sides. The headliner is a Lamborghini Aventador, which was wrapped in a Power Rangers livery for the YouTube channel. The collection also includes two Lamborghini Huracans, a modern Acura NSX, an Audi R8 V-10, a 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS, and, of course, five separate Stellantis products powered by variants of the ubiquitous Hellcat motor.
Bill Omar Carrasquillo, better known as Omi in a Hellcat, is set to serve 5 and a half years in prison for "piracy of cable TV, access device fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, and hundreds of thousands of dollars of copyright infringement." According to the Department of Justice, Carrasquillo built a small fortune by reselling copyrighted content from cable television accounts. Much of that money in turn went into the car collection that provided the backbone of the YouTube channel, which amassed a substantial following before his arrest.
The auction is set to take place on October 13. Bidding is already underway on the auction's website, with bids on seven separate lots already eclipsing six figures ahead of next week's official sale.
