    First impression...it is better then what we thought it would be!!!!! We traded in our 2012 Camaro SS which we had supercharged, headers, CAI, etc. It had 511rwhp with 516 torque. The Hellcat is just 100x better. The acceleration is INCREDIBLE as is the braking. In the Camaro we felt all over the place when we hit the gas. In the Hellcat we feel more in control if that makes sense. The exhaust is great and the ride is really smooth. The Camaro's ride was more stiff. My wife and I really had a great day picking the car up and driving around. A police officer even gave us the thumbs up! In the first picture is our Camaro next to the Hellcat. The other was taken in the showroom. 065.JPG 023.JPG

    Yet another most excellent Hellcat first impressions story! Glad you have your cat and you will definitely enjoy it more and more as you drive it.

    For all their faults, Dodge really design an amazing car. They just have to work on building them and getting them to the buyers!

    I promised the dealer a... ride ...after the paperwork was signed! Break-in period followed ;)

    The interior is much better. The seats are more comfortable and I do not have to reach for any knobs like the fan or volume. Ours is a manual and the shifter feels to be in a better position. The electronics have come a long way in 3 short years too. The electronic speedometer in the Camaro is dated as compared to the Hellcats. It is just an all around better car.

    It will be here before you know it!
