    My car finally came in. I did not order it from the factory. I was in the dealership looking to see what they had for sale on their floor: Sublime Green, 6 speed. I wasn't interested in it. He said they had an Ivory auto coming in in two weeks. Dang, that's what I was looking for, SOLD!

    So two weeks passed, I go to the dealership and ask about the car. They said they didn't know where it was. At the end of three weeks they call me saying your car is here.

    I rush down to pick it up.

    Absolutely stunning. What a beautiful car. Ivory white tri-coat pearl, sepia interior.

    I fire it up for the first time. Wow!! It just sounds mean. I look at the odometer and there's 13 miles on it. Hummm, is that normal? I drove off in total bliss.

    I cruise around town getting to know the car and I like it, no I love it.

    So, i'm getting around to tap through the different menus and run across the top speed screen. 154 mph. At first I'm like, "impressive." Then I'm like, "what the heck, I have not been over 100mph (and that was honestly by accident, this car is just so damn fast and smooth).

    How many miles were on your car when you drove off the lot and what is/was the top speed recorded before you "accidentally" went too fast?

    That's not cool. I'd be pissed if they took my car to 154 at the dealer. Especially with the Dodge recommended break ins.

    Good observation for us expecting the car to look for before we drive off the lot.

    I believe I read somewhere on the forum that they do this at the factory on PDI just to make sure they are good to go and have no issues I don't think 13 miles is above the norm either.... just passing it on!

    I didn't check before leaving the lot with 11 miles.. when I did 30-40 miles later the top speed was in check with my driving.

    sounds like the dealer might have ran it on their Dyno or did a hellacious burnout.

    TO ME they both = USED CAR @ 154 mph

    Dodge must have missed doing that to mine !! selling you a car as NEW that has been run up to 171 mph is FRAUD IMHO

    If you watch the video that shows a Challenger being built, at the end of the line it is placed on rollers. Steel safety poles come up out of the ground to prevent it from taking off because no straps are used. A worker sits in the car and a diagnostics computer is plugged in. The car is run through the gears, brakes tested and other things.

    The top speed on delivery has also be posted about with non Hellcat cars like the Scat Packs. Cars people know where right off the truck.

    Reset it and enjoy your car :)

    Mine had 9 miles after the pdi,, and top speed was 55, it has been posted that some cars show 176,179,154,, it's a computer thing, there no way there driving all these cars that fast,I good person to ask what his miles are it's the guy who just picked up the B5 charger hellcat, or RCC, both those cars were bought and went straight into storage, one by trailer and the other drove 3 miles home
