    Hopefully they leave room for 345s on the back of that car.

    Cool car, would love to take it for a "spin".

    Re: Anybody else REALLY want the new Challenger SRT Hellcat?

    I'm thinking the Hellcat is going to be a 'hot-rod' (but this is just my speculation; I don't know); thinking that the ZL1, Z-28, even the Mustang might/will be more balanced. As a far as the CTS-V, different genre completely (ultra sports sedan). Again, JMO and completely speculative as far as the Challenger is concerned.

    The Z/28 is entirely that direction. Its whole goal in life is to be a track animal.

    Hellcat? Who knows. It's bitchin', that's for sure.

    I am thinking a set of drag slicks on the back and drop the hammer.

    Hopefully the rear end on this car can take some major abuse. The big question in my mind is will you turn the Pumpkin into a grenade.

    I am familiar with the 4C because Alfa & Maserati are clients of mine, I would have to drive it to know though.
    For that type of car I would prefer a Lotus or Vette.
    I just do not like the retro styling of the Challenger or Camaro.

    This sounds interesting! Do you mind if I ask what you do?

    Can't. It's why the SRT's are fairly narrow. You'd have to tub it...

    Re: Anybody else REALLY want the new Challenger SRT Hellcat?

    Well that's too bad. All that Money and then spend more to tub it...

    I would be in a 'Vette (Z06 can sport some wide shoes on the rear). The New Z06 is supposed to be 650 HP and I believe the same amount of torque. It should out beast and out handle the Hellcat as I'm sure it will be lighter.

    Re: Anybody else REALLY want the new Challenger SRT Hellcat?

    Corvette? Yes, they are cool. I sat in one at the Detroit Auto Show this last winter. I couldn't believe that I almost fit in it. The last Vette I sat in almost snapped my spine in half because it was so small inside. Still, I'd rather the Hellcat. But then again, I might be biased...

    Re: Anybody else REALLY want the new Challenger SRT Hellcat?

    Well yeah. I don't even know why the two come up in comparison at all aside from the horsepower figure. They serve entirely different segments of the market.


    C7s are definitely bigger inside than C6s, though. So nice.

    Re: Anybody else REALLY want the new Challenger SRT Hellcat?

    They are both...
    Fast Cars - Check
    American Muscle - Check
    High Horse Power - Check
    have a Cool Factor off the charts - Check

    Good point, I have no idea why these cars are being compared....

    ----------

    Now if someone compared it to an AMC Pacer then I would question the comparison.
