    Well, I had been in denial for too long regarding the PCP Challenger. I used to secretly covet the PCP challenger and quite frankly (in my opinion anyways) the highest impact color on the challenger followed by Torred and sublime. However the purple screams heritage.

    I had wrapped the hood of my 2015 Torred HC and never felt fully satisfied as I knew I had cut corners while achieving that look. I wanted the satin black hood from the factory, and the match with purple is insane.

    It all began a couple of weeks ago when I walked into one of the dealerships to pick up my splash guards and happened to see the 2016 PCP HC sitting inside the showroom. From what began as a harmless banter with the sales manager metamorphosised into me driving it out two hours later after trading in the 2015 Torred HC challenger....lol.

    2016 PCP Challenger HC: A8, red belts, Laguna seats, Sunroof and the satin black hood. Msrp in Southern CA....lol....like chasing unicorns but I pulled it off.

    XPEL stealth on the entire black satin hood and XPEL ultimate on the rest. Installed OEM Mopar Splash Guards. Tinted the Windows 35% (Suntek CXP) all around with windshield at 80% and kept the splitter protectors on and wrapped it with 3m Carbon weave vinyl....love how it came out.

    From far you cannot even make out whether the splitter protectors are on and wrapped in 3m vinyl carbon weave.

    Very nice. I've considered letting go my 2015 Sublime for a 2016 PCP but....I can not let go.;):D

    I would have a hard time if I had sublime as well.

    Thanks a lot. I was the same way about my Torred until I saw the PCP up close and in the flesh. It just messes with your senses. lol.

    It is a very mesmerizing color. I tried to fight the PCP temptation for a long time but the fact that this is out of production and was available for msrp made it easier to pull the trigger.

    I actually was trying to talk the wife into a pcp over the winter, and she wouldn't go for it. So I tried, anyway. Not that she is controlling, lol, but she likes the torred better. I actually kind of do too, I think. :confused:
    Hellcats are beautiful in any color!!

    Thanks a lot.

    Yup..I probably got inspired by Jimi. Lol.

    The only muscle car which is available in purple besides the charger. I can't think of another muscle car in the same color. This is unique.
