    Found a dealer that isn't too far away that will do a MSRP deal on a 2016 Charger HC. Have been shopping around for my next car - was really wanting a Mustang GT350 but the ADM is crazy. Most around here want to rape you with ADM on the Hellcat as well, so this is a nice surprise. They have a list to hold spots until the order banks open in August. I believe there is only one person on the list at this point, so the chances are good to get an order in pretty quickly. They got eight or more Hellcats for the 2015 model year.

    So I'm thinking about a fully loaded 2016 Charger HC without the red belts. Not sure if I'd get the brass monkey wheels or not. Still looking at pics and deciding. Good problem to have I suppose.

    For the color, I think I'm going to go with Ivory Tri-Coat Pearl. I have a 2014 Durango R/T in Bright White, but I love pearls. I saw a B5 Charger Scat Pack running around locally, but it's a big too blue for me, even if it is the fastest. Sorry B5 guys, never had a blue car before.

    Alternate colors would be Granite Crystal or Redline Red.

    I look forward to getting the ball rolling this weekend and hopefully having an order submitted as soon as possible. I thought my old C63 AMG was fast but I think I'll be in for a pleasant surprise. :)

    My goodness, are you planting these people on the site? Are you using your computer skills to trick me or are you using mind tricks to brain wash people???

    People, put on your aluminum foil hats and stop listening to B5

    Say it with me..... Black is the quickest, fastest, best color

    Good luck tomorrow! I think the brass monkey wheels would look good with the ivory.

    For colors I tend to want to fly under the radar, though the red does really pop and looks great.

    I put the B5 comment in my post because I knew B5 would say something if I didn't. :)

    Looking forward to getting one!

    You are very correct about the AMG. I have a 2004 E 55 AMG, the supercharger pumps out over 500 ft/lbs of torque. I have always felt this car was
    extremely fast. I have 1600 miles on the Hellcat, so you can tell that I have been driving it. Well the other day I took out the AMG..........you guessed it the
    car now seems slow !! I punched the gas peddle and held on but it just
    didn't press you back in the seat. I wanted to yell at the car, "is that all you
    got'? The Hellcat will spoil you !

    Lol, yea every time he finds someone talking about B5 lately he tags me in.

    I just got the black pearl (phantom) and it is spectacular, if white is your color you will love the ivory pearl and I think the the brass monkey wheels will accent it very nicely.

    Good luck tomorrow and what ever color you choose you are going to love the car

    Thanks guys! I still have a couple of weeks to figure out what I want to order, but like Black Friday at Best Buy, it's time to get in line a little early. :)

    So I guess there's no consideration for the new rare colors for you? ...Like PCP or Go Mango?

    I'm on the fence between ordering Pitch Black or Plum Crazy (PCP). I plan on keeping the car for life, so it makes it equally as hard to decide. But being a middle aged family man with a professional career, I'm leaning towards Pitch Black to save myself from the embarrassment of showing up for a business meeting in a purple car.

    Nope. Neither of those colors do it for me. Please someone has a PCP Charger at work, so I'd hate to cramp their style with another one in the parking lot. :)

    Heading to the dealership this afternoon. They confirmed they have one person on the list for the 2016 Hellcats and the deposit is fully refundable. Everything will be in writing as an MSRP deal.
