    MYTH I preface this that I feel bad for all these people on this forum, that have patiently waited to no avail, who don't have a Hellcat yet, because once you get yours you will understand the Myth and the reason I'll call these cars Legends.

    When I first got my Charger Hellcat, I called my Uncle, in Minnesota, told him and the first thing he said he thought the Hellcats were a Myth. he went on to say no dealer has them , can't buy one, never seen one and they don't exist.

    For the first time. finally after all these months, on Memorial Day weekend, was out with the wife in my Charger Hellcat and I saw the first Hellcat in the Wild, A beautiful white Challenger. We both waved to each other as we passed, and I could see he was as enthusiastic as we were, my wife said " Turn around and go meet them". car sounded and looked great. We were late for something, with all the traffic and I didn't turn around. Never saw one before that so I guess now they are real.
    Dodge made a lot of claims for these Hellcats, are they a Myth? Where are all the Hellcats?

    Legend in its own time.

    There is no denying some facts and here are some of them
    .
    1. First factory production car with 707HP made in the USA.
    2. First car in the USA made with over 700HP
    3. Fastest Sedan EVER made on the Planet. 204MPH 206.9MPH-one way No production 4 door automobile has ever gone this fast!
    4. Most powerful V8 ever made.
    5. Electronics- Drive modes, Performance pages, and my favorite is the HP/Torque/MPH/Boost/Gear indicator gauge.
    6. Able to 1/4 mile low 11's and maybe 10's with right tires.
    7. Brakes- largest front brakes Chrysler has ever put on a car.
    8. Too Much Fun, and the only complaint I have is when full throttle is applied, things go by very fast, i can't read the gauges and need passengers to tell me what happened.

    All of these accolades make these Hellcats Legends. No other production cars can make these claims and this puts these Hellcats in very RARE AIR.

    I have a question, just curious, How far can a Hellcat travel if it can empty it's tank in 13 minutes?

    There is only one reason this many people would wait over 8 months.

    Seeing another charger hellcat in the wild has proven to be quite the task.

    Get this, I drive my cat all over hell and back and have yet to see another one out there, so last Saturday, went on a bike ride to Huntington Beach and over by Bolsa Chica, I spot another tor red with the plate 'HELKHAT'. On my bike. Crazy.

    I live within 5 mins of that beach and walk it everyday. Mine is the only hellcat I've seen locally, in the wild, and not at a show. Thought I saw a challenger the other day and went and chased him down. "Just" a srt. He said mine was the first charger hellcat he'd seen ever.
    I sure do like how undercover the charger seems to be though. Thinking about losing the hellcat logos to really disappear. All other badges have been pulled
    Btw.....She's both a legend and a myth!

    ^ we are close. The answer then depends on a couple of things. But the answer is right in there, yes has to be full throttle because 1.5 gpm does not change. Acceleration and velocity derivatives but it's been a long time since the calculus was performed. I roughed it out using about 6-10 time to velocity equations then rounded up for coasting from about 196 out of gas, did you do that?

    Can you imagine these Hellcats can go higher top speeds than Nascar travels @ most of their tracks.

    How far @ full throttle 1 min. 2.5 miles
    2nd min. 3.4 miles 299 ft/sec.
    3-13 min. 37.4 miles
    coasting 1 mile
    Total 44.3 miles

    Driver72- Would you consider the 1965 Shelby 427 Cobra a Special car or a Legend? First production car to go top speed 165mph, 4.3sec. 0-60 and 12.2 118mph quarter mile. I would call it a Legend, just ask the owners that have paid beaucoup bucks to own one.

    When I past that Ferrari, with his beautiful girlfriend or the Mustang Cobra/Terminator, which tried to pass me or that S7 Audi, that took off from a stoplight, They did not want any part of the Hellcat when i got near them. They already knew they didn't stand a chance.

    Had my garage open, UPS guy came to deliver something and asked why I put new exhaust on the SRT, when I showed him the Hellcat,he being an STI owner, he flipped out and stayed talking for about 15 min.

    You beat me to it!!! Fun fact though... Car's engine is Mexican. I think the blower is Japanese? The birth is in Brampton; so theirs a good chance of it being of Indian decent? Possibly Sikh? Slight traces of German & Italian.

    So like America, it's as American as you can get!!!:D
