    first of all, I would like to say thank and it is my pleasure to be with you.
    I am actually from middle east and I had order the first hellcat there even though I leave in The USA.
    We didn't get any car yet through authorized retailer As well I had paid full price for a main dealer around $ 76500 to get the first hellcat in middle east and I still not able to get it any way.
    I have a new group of friends (club) who have or thinking to get one of it.
    my Question . I'd like know
    Which is Hellcat better and faster to order ( Auto or manual shifting)?
    thank u

    Really just about preference. Dodge has stated that the automatic is faster as it can shift faster than a driver can shift a manual transmission. With that said...I chose a manual transmission because I am all about enjoying my car to the maximum potential possible and since I don't commute in traffic and just drive around to have fun, it is perfect for me. Either one is awesome, it boils down to what kind of driving you expect to do with your Hellcat.:D

    Yes, if you want it for racing as primary goal then the automatic is best

    auto is always .4-.5 seconds faster....also easier to be faster for the common man

    why buy a fast car and get a slow transmission? get the A8

    ^^^ over half (being conservative) the folks with A8 will be out driven by the ole school 6MT folk!
    Guess I'm not "track" enough, never give up the control/connection with bangin gears!

    not many ole school track folk out there....an average driver vs average driver the A8 should win almost every time----------i think 90%+ of us out there are not ole school track guys.....most are mid life crisis and drive like old men......been to too many muscle car cruises where they drive 5mph under the speed limit and then brag about the 1 time they went 90mph------i remember being the last car on a SVT cruise...i was a gt500 behind a Laguna Seca boss 302....here he had the best handling car on the cruise.....took the corners at 1/2 speed.........most people who buy these cars dont drive them hard core....

    good driver vs good driver A8 should get 1/2 a second faster times........ill bet there will be some A8 392's beating M6 HC's 0-60

    i got 4.3 seconds on my 2011 392 A5.........ill bet thats right where the m6 hc is 0-60....no one knows, dodge wont say.....

    not saying a 392 will beat a HC 1/4 mile, but i am saying 0-60 on the street a 392 has a chance against a M6 hc
