    Every SRT I've seen in local dealer stock has had a sunroof. I special ordered mine specifically to get it without that God forsaken option, and the dealer acted like I was odd for not wanting it. Then I see numerous posts here mention the same sentiment. Why do the dealers order their Scat's and SRT's with sunroofs, when it seems so many will refuse any car with one?

    in 2015 there was a lack of sunroofs for a bit.

    in 2016 a sunroof in a scat pack or srt8 is 1195
    in a 2016 hellcat 1995. why?

    For profit and sun roofs are popular though I wouldn't have one.

    Def about profit, it is almost a couple thousand add on (have to double check). I am with you because I see a lot of cars that have drains plug and leak water. It is more of a pia for me than anything else. Roof builds take longer regardless also. Not for me
    Look at it like this. Add roof and A8 along with more gas guz tax your 7k more than m6 no roof

    I've never wanted one due to the worry of leaks but I sat in a new SRT Challenger before I ordered my replacement car and I liked it so I feel for the gag and ordered one in place of the black hood. I hope that I don't regret it later down the road. I like being able to "vent" it on hot days instead of "cracking" my windows.

    I wouldn't get one with a sun roof either. However, since the rear windows don't go down... a Targa top might be cool.... maybe....

    Nahhh. :p

    I had a glass roof on my 2012 GT500 and loved it.

    Wide open feeling and no worries of any leaks.:D

    $23,000 less than the Hellcat, the way my dealer was quoting them. Seemed like a mighty expensive way to purchase a supercharger and hood grilles.
