I'm beyond exhausted. After 2 hours of sleep from working on a client project, I hopped a flight from Detroit to Pittsburgh to pick up my Hellcat. Had her hood wrapped and 20% tints. Only issue is one of the tints is coming undone on the drivers side. See, more than pinball comes with NIB issues. Easy fix though. It was a 7 hour drive from Waynesburg, PA to Manhattan. Spent most of the ride breaking her in...they recommend keeping her 55mph or below for the first 100 miles. That was impossible. By the 300 Mile point I had her WOT a couple of times. Let me just say she sounds and goes like a street legal nascar. But what impressed me most was how comfortable she is. After 2 hours in my Dad's vette I'm ready to die. But she rides like a Mercedes until all Hell breaks loose. Here are some photos. I'll take some more tomorrow. I need some sleep!

this is the part that is lost on alot of people. these cars and big and heavy but they are comfortable to ride in, even the back seat! congrats on your purchase!

You just went up a notch on the respect ladder.

You're at notch #1.

Welcome to our Chally club. Rude attitude!!

careful, that's a mod you're having an issue with. Don't give the hellcat haters any ammo.

#12 4 years ago

That has got to be a blast to drive on the street with the HP it makes. If vehicles like these keep coming off the assembly line, i may have to get rid of my drag cars and buy one and slap some drag radials on it, yah hoo.

Love the white exterior and red interior. Awesome ride! I want one just for the sound they make.

Nice ride! After years of driving GM muscle cars I finally made the switch to Dodge last year, and gotta say I love mine. I've been toying with the idea of a Hellcat, but nothing turns heads like a Viper (sometimes not a good thing)

Was white the only color the Hellcats were available in ?

#20 4 years ago

Sweet car. Be sure to use the red key

What is the blue car? Is that the scat pack version?

It appears to be a 2015 scat pack 392 shaker

Quoted from ruszip2:

no. 11 colors available first model year.

#22 4 years ago

Congrats Kaneda! Awesome car.

The Hellcat I test drove was white. White looks even better in person. It shows off the lines of the car well.

#23 4 years ago

Badass!!

#24 4 years ago

Sweet car! I want and I'm not a MOPAR guy!

I have a black, murdered out Hellcat on its way. Ordered it back in January. Hopefully it will be here soon, as the deal said it was shipped last week!

Here's some pics of one. Black looks great even better in person. I love the momentum air intake! At first it looks like a light is missing right next to driver side headlight but no it's the intake great design. Big congrats to you and Kaneda!

Nice, I'm glad to see American cars that are world class. I don't know that I'd buy a Hell Cat but it is a fantastic piece of work.

My problem with performance cars nowadays is that where I live the attention from law enforcement as well as the limited ability to actually drive spiritedly (due to law enforcement) is so intense that they're almost not worth the trouble for me. I sold my M3 and am unlikely to get another high performance car due to that.

#28 4 years ago

Car is a monster. Tons of them running around here in the Detroit area, some of them tuned to produce even more HP. They throw off a bunch of heat so they almost have their own atmosphere around them on a muggy night idling.

I was at a 7 Eleven the other day and there were four teenage boys in one. I was just waiting to hear the sirens later in the night. Turn off the nannies in one of these and you can get in trouble real quick.

Get'em while you can boys, because CAFE or insurance companies are going to do them in just like in 1971...

#29 4 years ago

Nice ride!!

What kind of gas mileage do you get with 700+ hp?

You're best bet is to have a performance car and live near a track... My problem is, I'm over 2 hours from a track :/

#31 4 years ago

Nice pick up. Getting a new car myself so I know how good it feels!

#32 4 years ago

Two people have mentioned a red key.
What's that about?

#33 4 years ago
Quoted from insaneinthedrain:

Seems the Red Key gives all the horsepower whilst the black restricts to 500hp...I'm only looking that info up though.

#34 4 years ago

I am curious at what kind of warranty do you get on the motor & drivetrain?

#35 4 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

BooHoo, only 500HP
Its a serious awesome car but I dont think I could justify spending that much on a car.
I wish they would bring back the 71 Cuda, that one would temp me really bad....as if the Challengers dont temp me enough.

#36 4 years ago
Quoted from pinbum:

5 year 100,000 mile warranty on the 2015's. That's amazing to have that kind of warranty on a 700+ HP motor with a blower on it.

For 2016, they reduced the warranty to 50k miles I believe.

I hear a Cuda is coming...seriously. When they roll out the new rear drive platform cars. If they make the new chassis Charger lighter (likely) I may have to spring for one. Cuda is rumored to come back with the new chassis so it will probably be lighter too. Then the one negative (weight) of the Hellcats would be fixed.

I've also heard after next year they'll stop making Hellcats with this engine and will be downsizing a bit.

Not consistent with anything I've heard. We have a great insider who posts on the Hellcat forum.

Quoted from michiganpinball:

Yep, this rumor has merit. Just a matter of when it will happen. People are clamoring for the 'Cuda, and considering how well Challenger's have sold, it seems like a no brainer.

Yep.just watched some videos on YouTube explaining the different keys.
700 hp might be a little overkill for Manhattan driving!

Congrats! Love my 2015 srt 392, what a blast to drive.

#42 4 years ago

Welcome to the club.

You should drive 45 minutes south to The Grove in Shrewsbury. There is a Cars and Coffee every other Saturday from 8:00AM-10:00AM outside of the Starbucks.

#43 4 years ago

You bastards and your awesome cars.

I'm very jealous.

Congrats on the new car Kaneda! Enjoy it, but be safe.

Here's how she sounds.

Visited my brother today. He has a scat pack Charger. Neighbors didn't like the cat roaring into town too much

One of the things I was most nervous about was where to park her in NYC. For those of you guys with garages/driveways you are the envy of every car guy in NYC. To put how annoying it is here, when I parked my Subaru STi on my block in an attendant garage back in 2006, it was $500 a month. And they would park it inches from the next car and the thing had so many dents and dings from them. So when I was looking for a space I had a few requirements:

1. No valet. No way I was handing the car over for someone to park and go Ferris Buehler with it.

2. Spot couldn't cost $500-$600. I mean that's what my monthly car payment is (financed half to build credit).

3. Spot had secluded and not near other cars.

So I lucked out big time. There's lots of new developments in Williamsburg, BK (a 20 minute bike ride / subway ride from me). Many of these buildings offer parking spots to its residents AND to outside people. You basically pick YOUR SPOT and pay monthly. So I found this amazing spot that answered all of my needs. And the best part is it's only $200 a month. Here are some photos of her parked there. As you can see, no way anyone can harm her. I need to also get the spot next to her and put a little Focus RS there was my winter / all season car.

It's brutally hot here in NYC, hence my flip flops. And I hadn't really slept in 48 hours. Can't wait to enjoy here when I am refreshed.

Unique sound...I didn't expect it to sound like that. It's not Ferrari-ish but rather classic muscle. Congrats.

#48 4 years ago
Quoted from ruszip2:

No they come in a variety of colors. White, Black, Red, Silver, Blue, Green. I just love White/Gold combo with black and red inside. White also just looks the best at night and ironically enough, stays the cleanest.

Quoted from kvan99:

Yeah, it literally sounds like a Nascar for the road. Dodge really designed it to be pure muscle and I love that move. Too many manufacturers are in a pissing match for track times and are designing these track day beasts: z28 and GT350. But let's be honest, most of the time we are not carving up apexes, we're on highways. So I love the comfort and brute force this things delivers. Had here Wide Open Throttle a bunch today. Amazing fun.

That's what I heard. Maybe I'll go there tomorrow morning. Is tomorrow one of the "every other"
