    I'm looking for a challenger Hellcat. I have one on order but if someone has a lead on one, let me know. It must be a 6 speed and no black.

    You might want to do a little self help

    Search the forums...

    Use Dodge's website as it will give vehicles within 200 mile radius of a zip code (shows in stock and in transit)

    Use CARS.com (There's only 550 Challenger Hellcats listed) You can sort by color and transmission.

    There's one at Westbury Jeep in Jericho, NY. It's B5 with Sepia interior and BM wheels. I am not sure if it is manual or auto, so maybe call and check.

    I'm in Canada so I can't use any of those websites and I'm not buy a Hellcat out of the States and importing it here. Even if I can get it for 2015 MSRP price of 67K USD. By the time it gets here it will be over 100K CDN. The Hellcat isn't worth that to me and no warranty on top of that.

    This doesn't work for us poor Canadians but thanks though.

    I already looked and there isn't too many besides dreamers asking too much for used Hellcats. I know there are a ton of these cars sitting in showrooms across the country that aren't posted on autotrader. With our current economic state, the buyers that were lined up for these cars are going to start dropping off. Especially here in Alberta.

    there is probably over 100+ all over the country right now....spend some time on auto trader, cars.com, ebay and the dodge website...spend 30 minutes and make some emails...you will find your car within 24-48 hours if you want to

    Please see the post above. I'm in Canada so what you're telling me won't work.

    Canadians are too passive for the HC....also the driving season is 30 days.....i think it could be why Dodge isnt giving Canada any HC's...

    good luck on your search.....still dont get why you cant buy here and ship to Canada, but its most likely something political...some stupid rule involving your version of the EPA

    Do you know what the current exchange is from Canadian to US dollars? Let me break it down for you:

    $65000usd Hellcat in CDN dollars: $92500.00
    Shipping: $3000.00
    Taxes at the Border (for me anyways) 7% based on the USD hellcat: $65000 x 0.07= $4450USD into CDN: $6400.00
    Inspections etc $250
    Warranty (because they won't honor the US warranty) $3000.00
    Total: $105 150.00 CDN

    No offence but the Hellcat isn't worth that to me. That's why...

    Also, FCA would rather ship the cars to the states and make more money than build them for Canadians. The dealers here in Canada don't know what's going on. Every car is in BX status. Even pickup trucks, Vans etc.. Everyone is having a hard time getting normal stock let alone a Hellcat.

    There is a used (way overpriced) one in Richmond, B.C. and a new one at MSRP. There is also a new one in Victoria, B.C. I think there are some in Ontario as well. Funny,,,I walked into my local dealership and one was sitting on the showroom (been there for weeks), I bought it and the dealer principal told me it was the 4th one they sold and had no issues getting one if it was not my color. I saw this kind of crap with the ZL1 and when my wife wanted a GC SRT, but we still had no issues getting either one.

    I get the humour....the real reason is that they can sell more cars in the state of california than they can for all of Canada, and with our dollar tanking that just represents gravy to the factory. There are no issues with importing a vehicle into Canada (other than the exchange rate)
