    Peterson Dodge in Lumberton NC has a torred Hellcat A8 for 10k over MSRP.

    Offered a 1/3 down with prearranged financing. Would not budge.

    The strange thing is Mr Peterson has both a Dodge dealership and a Toyota dealership side by side. But do not look for it at the Dodge lot... The Hellcat is in the Toyota showroom.

    Seems he likes the HC so much that he wanted it underneath his office window so he can gaze upon it at will. SO so strange looking at a HC under a Scion sign while all the prospective Toyota buyers are watching. o_O

    Good luck. I failed. Maybe someone can rescue the HC from deplorable housing.

    I'm wondering if the car is in the Toyota showroom so it is not perceived by Dodge as being sold.

    I'm sure dealers know what the rules are (regarding allocation) and working some loopholes.

    I think it is there so Dodge will, indeed, think is is off the Dodge lot and sold.

    They're going to be looking at their invoiced floor plans, not sending "agents" to physically canvas lots!

    If Mr Peterson likes it so much he should buy it for 10K over ;)

    Did you check the Dodge showroom? He probably sent a Prius there

    His dealer contract should be pulled.

    Hellcat at a Toyota/Scion dealer? Hogwash.

    You are wrong, they are going to give him 4 allocations now for not doing what he is supposed to do. We should send that picture to Toyota HQ. hahaha

    Hello Otto,

    Just thought I would check in with you to see if you're still interested in the 2015 Dodge Challenger. We would be able to order one for you, and would be looking at a 6 month delivery time. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me at any time.

    Thanks again,

    So if I order now, 6 month-delivery. This keeps getting better by the minute.

    Maybe he does not want to sell it. Thats pretty crappy that they have a different product in the showroom, I would like to think Toyota and SRT would not be very happy about that. Yep he owns the showroom but there has to be some rule. Poor Business/marketing planing at the very least.

    Someone should post this pic/info on the SRT facebook/twitter page to inform them (I don't use either).

    The extra 10k is obviously the extra delivery surcharge for moving the car to the Toyota lot.;)
