    Well I have a chance to buy a Phantom Black Hellcat, my first choice was Torred.

    Can anybody who has one tell me your thoughts and maybe post a pic?

    It also has a red interior, which scares me without seeing it in person
    The car is 1500 miles away and is not at dealer yet, but is built with a VIN
    I have asked dealer to hold it for me until tomorrow.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Phantom Black is too intimidating for other motorists, the red will look more festive.

    Buy whatever you want...if you're worried about the red interior...I had the exact fear and already have a shop lined up to replace the leather inserts...once I saw it, it was awesome. Pictures just do not capture the red correctly.

    Black is my favorite color car and my truck is Tuxedo (Ford's version of Phantom) Black and so is my wife's Edge...you will not regret it.

    Well problem is beggars can't be choosers, I have an opportunity to buy it, my order I have for a Torred may not get built until 2016 and I am unfamiliar with the phantom black, just asking for input from PB owners.
    Thanks Zixxer, I will check my Ford dealer and see if they have any Tuxedo vehicles in stock to look at

    If you don't buy it PM me the details. If it is an A8 I'll buy it!

    Phantom Black, with red interior, and a six-speed...that car is HELLACIOUS! I will be shocked, if you are not blown away by it. (Note, that's what I am hoping to get, so just perhaps I'm biased?)

    Won't help you, unless you're in Canada. These things are VERY hard to come by, especially at a reasonable price.

    I swore I would never have another black car……and then I see my Phantom Black Hellcat!!!!!! Love it. The metallic does a great job of hiding dust/etc and has been easy upkeep so far. Good Luck
