    Hi All,

    Im a new member and currently drive a 2013 Charger SRT8 (amazing car), waiting for delivery of my new Charger Hellcat. It will be the first one in the UK and can't wait. Its been very difficult to get hold of one as prices in the US are very high. We arnt lucky enough to buy in the Uk from Dodge dealers.

    Will post some pictures once I receive the car, hopefully around 18th April.

    Hello, and welcome to the forum! Grtz on scoring a HC Charger, they are beautiful! Please do post pictures when you get the car, as we love to admire one another's HellCats! :) I hope that you enjoy your HC as much as I enjoy mine, which I named Dante.

    April

    PS - We have another UK member that has a HC Challenger. He had quite the difficult time aquiring his, so I have an idea of what you have gone through to getting yours. Grtz again!

    Welcome aboard HF11. Glad to see another UK guy on here. I'm based near London. My Challenger Hellcat should be with me in the next four weeks. It has been a long wait but I know it will be well worth it :)

    I had ordered a Challenger Hellcat in sublime in August last year, but kept being disappointed with the delivery date constantly being put back. Nearly bought a Challenger SRT8 to fill the gap and then this came up, already built and ready for shipping. Pity yours not here a bit sooner as I have to come to London to pick my car up (51st State Autos) Maybe see you at an event over the summer months.

    Nice to hear from you all, first time I've been on any-sort of forum. Don't even do Facebook.
    Hope its going to be worth the wait.

    I've always been curious how folks across the pond get their hands on american machines. Do you buy from a us dealer and then import it at your own expense? Just curious about the process. I've only driven a little in the UK (scotland) but based off the road size there, it seems any of the lx platform cars would be hard to drive around. Although I did see a 300 SRT in a small coastal village in fife - and that surprised the hell out of me. Thanks and welcome

    Welcome HF. Now there are 2 members from the UK and a couple from Germany. Looking forward to seeing the reaction you get from the locals when the HC comes out. Keep us updated... with pix.

    Bought my first American car back in 2009, it was a Hemi Orange Challenger R/T. Fell in love with the challenger when on holiday in Florida in 2008 when I saw one at Red Barn. I promised myself I would get one and I did. 2011 traded up to Challenger SRT8 392 and what a difference that was. As you can see from my profile picture I now drive a Charger SRT8 and can't tell you what a difference it from the Challenger. Yes its difficult on our narrow roads and have to take up 4 parking spaces if we are out shopping or dining. Its well worth it though as we have tiny average cars. As for getting a car here, you can do it yourself but I always use the same UK specialist dealer (51ststateautos.co.uk) have a look.It works out a bit more expensive but saves loads of hassle. As for cost, the Charger Hellcat on the road in the UK is £65'000 and upwards approximately $94000 OUCH!!! only just worked that out. What the heck, its a hell of a car.

    We stick to left hand drive rather than convert to right hand as its more interesting. We don't have daft rules like that here but do have to put the car through an SVA test. Alterations to the lights and indicators (turn signal) are the main priority.
