    I learned about this website not to long ago. I've been reading thread after thread since the day I've decided to want to purchase a hellcat challenger. Just wanted to say hello and thanks for all the info this forum has provided me. With that being said...

    Got off work at 1600 hrs. Dealer called around 1605 hrs. They stated they are giving me first dibs on their 1st allocated 2016 Challenger Hellcat. Wanted me to come in tomorrow to begin the ordering process.

    I already know I want the satin black hood, black wheels, black seats, and red seat belts. The only question that I really can't seem to figure out is WHAT COLOR DO I PICK?! Do I go with sublime green, tor red, redline red, or Jazz blue (with the satin black hood of course)?

    I'm really stuck here. This is the first time I'm purchasing a vehicle like this and I really want to make sure I get it right with no regrets on color choice.

    Your thoughts please. Also, if you have a satin black hood on your challenger, please post a picture so I can compare the different looks. I'd really like to see the redline red with satin black hood.

    Oh and my wife hates sublime green (my favorite of course)

    Thanks!!
    (My first post btw)

    Go with white. Green is too loud, plum is too "pimp". IMO it was cool back in the day, but in 2015 not so much. Stay away from black

    My wife has a bright white car, I have a bright white car. Would like to add a little color to the driveway/garage. Definitely not getting plum purple. That wasn't even a thought in my head! Black looks nice but it appears everyone has a black challenger in my area. Thank you for the input though!

    Congrats thus far that's an exciting call.
    There's bin price increases on all options. The black hood being the most insane.it went from 900 to 1900. But agree the black hood is nice. I would go red line then torred

    Redline red...

    There is good thought to wrapping instead of painting. One is permanent, the other provides options and is a lot less expensive.

    To review:
    expensive and permanent verses reasonable and has options

    Thanks all for your submissions. Intercooler, I've must've looked at every color about 10 times. I just learned yesterday after having typed this post that sublime green won't be available (breaks my heart). I am really liking the redline red with the satin black hood. It would appear that so do 62% of you feel the same way! I am aware it requires different care and of the price increase. I'm going in today to speak with the sales manager at my local dealer. I've been on their waiting list since spring of this year. I really am excited to begin this process.

    Personally I'd skip the satin hood and have it wrapped. Saves money and leaves you with more future options...
    Imho

    Nine votes, not a big sample. But Hank you can't go wrong with the car, red or blue, you will love it. Note that by one car the Jazz Blue is the rarest 2015 color with only 199 made. When we can get more to the tracks they will realize the Jazz has special capacities for speed! Good luck, hope you get it soon.

    Red seat belts = Redline or Tor Red as your best options

    I have the satin hood, they do require special care and maintenance but its not that bad.. However you cannot take it thru any car wash. The soaps will ruin the paint. So as stated above, you might consider doing a wrap. You get the same look without the extra care and it can be removed if you want.

    Welcome to the forum. Congrats on ordering your HC. After Ivory White, I like the B5, Billet, Jazz and Granite in that order, but I am not the one who has to look at it everyday. Black is too hot and hard to keep clean, red attracts the attention of our fine LEO's. Let us know how things develop:)

    I just joined this group. I work at a Dodge dealership in NY.
    All of our Hellcat allocation that we have sold so far has been at MSRP
    It seems as though most dealers within a few hundred miles of here are asking way over sticker price, I was wondering how well most of you were able to do on your purchases.
