    My rep said Laguna is much softer like the ones in Ferrari and Viper

    The standard "leather" is actually a high-grade Nappa leather trim with perforated Alcantara (suede-like material) inserts. The Laguna leather is premium grade (also perforated for heating and cooling) and can be ordered in black or sepia (tan). I guess it depends on how much you'd like to spend for the premium interior (and what color exterior you go with).
    I prefer the Alcantara since it's not "hot" in the summer sun, and "cold" in the cooler months (my Hellcat will never see winter - except to bring it home from Ohio - 500 miles each way).

    Yes what CD said, and thanks for the detailed info!!
    I also confirmed today that Black Laguna is not available by the way for the hellcat Challenger according to SRT customer service rep. It is available for Dodge Viper though.

    I just don't think they should have given options if they were not sure they could fulfill them. People would not be upset if they did not have the option in the first place.o_O

    I originally ordered the Brass Monkey wheels (not a fan of "murdered" cars), but decided to pass on them instead of waiting for the brass finish (late availability). It's all good..... I have something else in mind for my wheels now. ;)

I decide not to change order and give up my car and wait for the Laguna . I just talked to srt to find out Laguna black will not be available on any of the hellcats !!! Thus I just have up my allocated car f

    Dodge has some serious marketing issues !! The engineer who designed this engine should be the same guy in charge of marketing !!

    That is terribly frustrating!! I am really sorry to hear about this. I hope the positive is that they can get your car built asap with the other seats.o_O

    Well, if your dealer isn't willing to correct the problem and place your order, call my dealer - Bob Frederick Jr at Columbiana CJD in Columbiana, Ohio. LMK if you need contact info, or chek out his site at FrederickScatPack.com .
