That's not a 6 speed? Sounds like it is and the way the car leans forward when it shifts looks like it's a manual too.

I thought it was from the way it traveled down the track but no 6 speed has pulled those numbers.

I pulled over a guy in a 2015 SRT8 Challenger last night (more than doubling the speed limit). So I tell him how cool his car is, and he says yeah its the Hellcat. Well I look and there is a 392 badge instead of a hellcat badge, and it has the wrong hood. So I tell him sorry bud but its a 392 SRT8 not a hellcat. He insists that he ordered it a year ago and its a 707 horsepower hellcat. I ask him to pop the hood, and low and behold.... Its just a 392 no blower. I didn't want to burst his bubble and just let him drive away thinking he had a hellcat. Hope he didn't pay for a hellcat lol!

he was probably just trying to show off, assuming you didn't know what you were talking about.

I've seen them around my area in the car carriers being delivered but none on the streets being driven yet!

I spoke to one of the truck drivers driving a car carrier with 3 hellcats on it. All he kept saying was "you have to hear it !!!" Hahahahha.

Can't wait till the car shows this summer so I can take a real close look at them.

Dang , you messed up the best part because I would've love to see what he would've said when you had told him that his car doesn't have a blower. Maybe, would've help the guy out too because what if he really did think it was a Hellcat or the dealer told him that ?

I like the Hellcat and think it's an awesome car but I do wonder what does it bring to the table different from the 15 Challenger SRT 392 except that it has a supercharged 707 hp engine (which obviously will make it faster), hood, front fascia, Hellcat emblem?

I've read that everything else is the same (i.e. options, handling, tranny, rear end, etc.). I've searched and that's all I could find. Am I wrong?

I don't really understand, if your going to spend the research/development $$ and with a "special" offering you get leeway on stuff, why can't we have a 600 hp naturally aspirated car?

No offense to anyone, just a personal preference, but I want a 500 hp+ non blown engine.

All the development dollars went into one place.

That pic is hilarious!!!!



Today, while out and about, I stopped by a Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge dealer and they were all commenting on the Z/28. Several of the service dept. and sales people commented on how they thought the Z/28 was a complete package and made the comparison to the Hellcat. So there's no misunderstanding, they made that comparison, not me. Overall, I think they were impressed with it. Maybe its because they were looking at one, some for the first time in person.

Ironically, they spoke of the Hellcat's power negatively stating that its really hard to put all of it down on the ground without loosing control of the car. Quote: " The power is great but the rest of the car is under engineered to control it." One salesman commented on a customer who lost control of his brand new Hellcat when pulling out of the dealership after purchase. Shockingly, all said they would rather have the Z/28 over it because of that (once again, they were looking at a Z/28). They still spoke highly of the Hellcat but none said that that would purchase one if given the chance.
