    Hi all, looking forward to hellcat ownership. This will be my first muscle Car and really excited. I've owned 6 sports cars over the years. 4 Vettes, a 69, 82, 96, and a 99. Then had a 2001 and 2006 Viper Coupe. I sold the last Viper in 2009 and now looking to get back into owning a fun fast car again.

    I'll be picking up my new HC in about 2 weeks. I had a hard time deciding between a Z06, Viper, or Challenger. I am just looking to have fun on the street with the new ride and think the Hellcat would be a blast to own. To me, I was not looking forward to having to climb in and out of the Vette or Viper anymore although they are just awesome machines. For me, just a bit too tall and my older knees helped me with the decision.

    Test drove an RT, easy to get in and out of and had a great ride. I figure the HC will just be a a lot of fun.

    Just curious, anybody move from a C7 or Gen 5 Viper to a HC?

    I'll post pics once I pick up the car.

    Hello, and welcome to the forum! Grtz on the incoming Hellcat (I am waiting for mine, also). What color and trans did you get on your HC?

    I have been driving performance cars for the majority of my life, and have been driving Challengers specifically, for the past 7 years. I have had a 2009 TorRed Challenger SRT8, a 2013 Jazz Blue Challenger 392, a 2015 Redline Challenger Hellcat, and as I mentioned above, I am currently waiting on my 2016 Plum Crazy Challenger Hellcat. If I had known that Plum Crazy was a 2016 color choice I would not have ordered the 2015 at all. Oh well, such is life! :)

    April

    Good morning and welcome to the forum from upstate New York. There is no comparison to having the hellcat and you made a great decision. I walked in he said to having a bad day at work opening your garage and there she is the most beautiful engineering marvel of its time. I hope your car comes soon and God bless

    There is nothing like the raw power and torque of this car. I can simply put as I've stated before it's like being in the seat of a rocketship

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new HC! I'm sure you will be impressed with the power of your new ride. It's also a head turner and attention getter. Most everyone has heard of the Hellcat... :)

    Congrats on your future Hellcat...it is like no other car. Night and day from the RT and from the SRT. I came from a supercharged 2012 6.4L SRT8 Challenger, and the difference was night and day, even from that. Faster, better handling...everything just 10 notches better! The hardest part is not going nuts with the car during the break in process for the first 500 miles.

    I live in central jersey, picking the car up in south jersey. Just flew in from Atlanta and have no idea of the weather for tomorrow. Well, may have to call it a Snow-cat!
