    We ran a poll a year ago when the cars starting rolling down the line to see the split between auto and manual cars.
    Very surprising at the time it was almost an even split between them.
    Curious what the numbers are these days.

    If you OWN a Hellcat or have one on order please post what transmission in the poll

    Many thanks


    This is NOT a thread about which one is better, please....

    I have the M6. I'm a traditionalist, it's more fun for me to drive a muscle car with a manual.

    From the beginning it was 75% autos. Dodge did not have enough. They started pushing manuals and still do to this day with allocations. Some just settled, just to get the car, but it is still 3 to 1 auto.

    The engine and the A8 are why I purchased the car.

    I'm confused? Are you saying dodge didn't have enough manuals or automatics? Some people settled for a automatic because they couldn't get manuals but now dodge is pushing manuals? I always had manuals in my muscle cars until I bought my first A8 and I don't think I settled for anything. This A8 kicks ass and is so much fun I'll never go back to a manual shift.

    They couldn't fill the demand for autos. They settled for manuals. You are confused.

    Drive what you enjoy.

    For me the 6 speed doesn't make much sense in a big heavy car like this. The Hellcat engine and the A8 are absolutely incredibly well matched, a true work of synergistic engineering. Driving the 6 speed was fun, but the A8 is otherworldly and faster!
