    This car gets a lot of looks... people see it, they're not sure what it is, but they know it's different.
    I just finished the second coat of sealant today; three coats of black label will be next. Bright sunshine today making the redline red glow, the hellcat is simply stunning, and definitely stands out from the crowd.

    Just wondering if anyone else noticed the same reactions from bystanders, etc
    I'm beginning to like this car a lot, such a different animal from my supercharged 427 vette :)

    Oh yes, the vast majority of us know exactly what you are saying! These HCs are total rock stars! I honestly think it is because of how loud and aggressive they sound, because like you said, even people who are not "car people" seem to sense there is something different with the Hellcat. Enjoy!

    no doubt--the looks.. they don't know whether to wave or be afraid...

    Thanks April, I agree the sound has something to do with it. The first thing I did after getting the car home from the dealer was to install Timmbo's exhaust kit. The results are exactly the right throaty sound I was looking for, including being able to return the car back to stock in about ten minutes :)

    My HC get some attention but nothing like my 2013 Challenger SRT with shaker hood and lowered (the HC is lowered too)...2013 always gets a horn blow or shout from people when I take it out for a drive. The HC may get driven several times before I get a compliment.

    Other than the hood the HC really doesn't stand out from any other Challenger...most people have no idea what a HC is...

    When people hear the blower whine as you pass them is priceless

    And it's hard to fly under the radar with a glowing, bright red V-hickle!
    Our Sublime turns heads too...:)

    I know at least a dozen times I have looked in the rearview mirror at a light and some guy has his cell phone up taking pictures. I'm in a small town and I am amazed how many people know all about a Hellcat. My car has been photographed at gas stations, Jacks, restaurants, and many other places. Most people ask if they can take some photos, of course I have no problems with that.

    I have even had several GT Mustangs drive by and give me the thumbs up.

    This car rocks!

    I've had people take video of my Hellcat and also several compliments at places I've stopped. The car is still more low key than most of my past toys though. My last car was a 2014 Corvette Z51. That car really drew attention (there weren't quite as many out when I got mine, either).

    The attention and looks we all get when we drive our cars is something special. People know abt the rockets and see them so infrequently that the react in a way which is in awe. They are attention getters because they are hellcats

    Your car looks smoking hot. Show it off and be safe

    Thanks!
    I figured if this is supposed to be a cat from hell, I might as well get one in a color that looks like it's been there
