    Our very own Kevin McGuinn has friends in low places that were able to get a quick snapshot of what appears to be a Pitch Black Challenger SRT Hellcat taking a break. Kevin says the car was 'shot' in Detroit at a "holding lot getting ready to go for service updates apparently from Dodge." What those service updates are we don't know. His source was unable to obtain that information either.

    Thank you Kevin for sharing this 'spy shot' with the community!

    Folks we have an update to this story. Kevin has heard from his source that there is an issue with the back windows blowing out (drivers side) Here are the full details below:

    *UPDATE* My source has confirmed that a lot of the back windows are breaking because of pressure. Apparently the drivers side window is not moving up and down to release the pressure. The Hellcats are being shipped to two facilities outside of Detroit for the updates and repairs. Stay tuned. Oh and he said they have to really watch loading these beasts on the car haulers because of the front splitter. ~ Kevin McGuinn

    Geez, I look at that awesome car and have a bit of regret that I did not go with black again! That car looks beast! I am sure mine will too, but that is a beauty! It just makes the dream a little more reality seeing a candid shot! I can't wait to see these babies tearing up the street!

    There is NO doubt everyone in the area will know my car. Right now I get away with crap because the po po just sees a bit of black and there are 3 loud black muscle cars by my office. I am usually out of my car and in the office before they are looking for who was causing trouble. The red is going to be more difficult to hide, especially that unique Hellcat growl. I thought about slowing down, but that just isn't in the cards! You guys are going to love the black. I'm wax my car 1x a month minimum and it always shines and looks sharp!:)

    Haha a client told me once that according to statistics the po po pull over red cars the most because it is psychologically the most aggressive color and it makes you look like you're driving way faster than you actually are

    CRAP! Like I need to look like I am going faster! It is inevitable that I am at Least 10 miles over and usually 20+:cool: well, if they accidentally deliver the wrong color, I won't pass it up! I don't think there is a bad color in the group! Is there a color that makes you look slower? That is what I should have got! Kind of like black is slimming...o_O
