    Hey all. Names Mike, 33 yrs old and wanted a challenger as soon as they re-released them in 2008. Unfortunately they were going for way above sticker price and I couldn't afford one at the time. In 2010 when the Camero was released again that drove the prices on the challengers down and I went for it. I bought a 2010 Mopar package RT in black pearl. Hood scoop and raised spoiler with the fader stripes in matte black on the sides, 6 speed manual. Loved it and for the last 6 yrs only put 16k miles on it, cared for it and stored it in the winter. I added an STS turbo kit that put me near 500hp at the wheel. All that (and some continued job growth with better pay) led me to want a hellcat more t 20160402_122820.jpg han anything. The dealer actually gave me 28k trade in which helped. But now the proud new owner of a 2016 SRT challenger hellcat. Couldn't be happier

    Congrats, Mike. Car looks great, it is good to move into the "top" Mopar for now, enjoy it! Can't wait to hear what you think of another 200 hp, but I bet you feel a way different and more powerful power curve than the turbo assisted 392.

    Is it an A8?
