Considering selling my car to buy a Hellcat

What does everyone think? What do you think I could sell my car for? I have a 2010 SLP ZL550 w/32,000 miles would be back to stock except for cam conversion. I would be selling all my mods separately. Pic in avatar

I think that you're running after the New Hot Thing. Chasing the Superlative in automobiles will empty your bank account pretty quick, but counting your money is your concern, not mine.

I'm definitely trading in my car for the 2016 year Hellcat.
It all depends on my trade-in value as well. I'm not going to low ball myself.
Good luck OP!

Throwing good money after bad. There is always something faster or better. IMO, the Camaro is a nicer looking car and a SLP550 is a little unique. Challengers don't handle. On street tires the GTR, Turbo S Porsche, and some others will smoke that thing in a straight line, top speed and the road course.

I think we will find that the Hellcat handles fine.

However that said I'd get a z/28 instead. But I do love the looks of the Challenger.

Why not ? Life is short enough anyway, but this 2nd muscle car era will only last so long. If the money part makes sense, go for it !

Get what you want, you don't need our approval. I am not saying anything bad about the hellcat and I am sure it is going to be a great car. IMHO if I had the money I would still buy a ZL1 over the Hellcat.

I'm getting one for sure. I've been waiting for this day for a long time. I've always liked the looks of the Challenger the best. Now that it finally has the performance that it deserves, this is a no brainer for me. Go for it and don't look back. It will be a great car for sure.

Op is also asking how much we think he can get his car for.
I would say 30-35k just to guess

Love the look of the challenger but wouldn't consider it until they reduce weight and make more powerful v6

Go for it. If that's what you want, then do it. You need no one's approval or "permission" here.

I'd sell outright though. If you trade, nobody would ever just wonder on to a Dodge dealer's lot looking for a Camaro. They know that, too. So you'd get low-balled on a trade-in.

I am sure I can get a good deal on a Hellcat. I had purchased several new cars,including 3 SRTs,from local Dodge dealer and now know the owner. it all depends on what I can get for my car.

I'm debating selling mine as well for the cat. Thankfully mine is paid for, I just dont want to be impulsive bc I really want a new C7Z06 (used) which is 2-3 years away realistically. If i get a nice amount for my '13 and the cat is not going over msrp I'm sold.

Op im not too sure on your miles, condition, options etc. I would place it on autotrader and cl at what you think is a fair price just for starters and go from there.

Dodge dealers are the worst for dealer markups that I have observed. When the Challenger first came out I looked at several different dealers that were selling those with a MSRP of about $35,000 for $50,000.... I would hate to see what those dealers will charge for one of these.
By the way the same dealers were marking up the PT Cruisers the same way, a $14,000 PT was marked up to $20,000.

Same here.
I'm going to trade in my '13 Roush Stage 3. ONLY if the deal is worth it. If not,...I'm not going to lose money. I'll just shop around for the best deal.

Either way you're gonna loose money whether its traded or sold because current cars are not an investment for most folks. From the moment they are driven off the lot the value decreases.

The better question is how much money you are willing to loose. That is something that only you can determine because what's acceptable to me may not be acceptable to you.

It seems the Hellcat will be an awesome vehicle. SRT products are also great. I've owned several and really liked each of them.

You only live once and while spending foolishly is never a good thing; hard work yields certain fruits, one being that we can purchase some of the things in life we want.

My car will be paid off/very close to being paid off, so I may actually make money with the down payment on the Hellcat.
Like I said,..there will be dealers that are looking to make my money, just got to do your search/homework. I will not take a wash on my car. Keep it till I get a good deal. It's a win-win.

Just buy the car mike. You know how much aggravation your Camaro has caused you over the years. You'll be faster with a set of sticky tires and no headaches. Then I'll come to Atco and spank you.
