    With all of the great choices for the Hellcat what color did you decide on and why? Example some people like Silver and gray since its easy to care for and looks clean all the time, Some people like black but its hard to keep looking clean.

    My favorite is the old blue on the the Challengers with the white stripes. But I always liked the Sublime and Plum Crazy on my older cars. I went with the In Violet ( Plum Crazy Purple) on my 70' convertible. We choose the Pitch Black on our Viper RT/10 with silver stripes and got our STR8 to Match.

    We decided on the TorRed for our new cat. Just wanted something other than black Was a hard choice because we liked most of the options. I will miss the stripes. But now way I am going to put stripes on the CAT.

    Asked my wife to pick out a color.
    She found out last week that I ordered a hellcat . From our 8 year old who went with me to order it .
    And all I had to say was you picked the color!
    She will get over it!!

    Okay...here we go. Some of you have heard this story, but not all. I currently have a black Charger R/T. It is my 3rd black car and 2nd black Charger. My co-worker, who is a snooty import guy, decides to buy a Charger. Not just any Charger, a black Charger Mopar Edition because he always has to be better than everyone else. So, I have always had black or my Cadillac was dark blue. Part of my reason for trading in my Charger is the co-worker since we are a small office and many have commented on him getting a car like mine and he is so NOT a muscle car guy that I knew i needed something else. I saw the ad for the Hellcat and knew I had to have it (2 birds and all that, needed to kick Corvette Dudes butt too). So, I am at the gym telling my friend about the car I am going to order and that I love black, but it has been ruined for me and there are 2 other black muscle cars in my hood too. I considered every color, but red, and then the gal at the gym was like "red totally fits your personality and you look good in red." I started thinking about it and red is spunky (hot for guys, I know they don't like spunky describing their car) and in your face bright and stands out. It certainly fits my personality so, I went in the next week when the orders opened at picked red. I can't say I haven't waivered a bit and have a bit of animosity that my co-worker ruined black for me, but this is a new car and deserves its own identity. Sorry, I am just not capable of short to the point answers...o_O

    Wanted something other than red which I always get on all my cars. I was lucky enough to see sublime in person and was blown away. Sublime with the black hood, black rims and I'll black out everything else...beautiful.

    I'm trading in/selling my 2012 Challenger SRT8 and it is blue which was my late wifes favorite color. Now i am going to have all green cars. I will have my sublime Hellcat, my 70 Mosport Green AMX (The Green Lady), and my other 70 Mosport Green AMC Rebel.
