Charger SRT Hellcat
Finally, got around to taking pics of my new CT5 Blackwing. Options I selected were Electric Blue paint, Red Calipers, Red seat belts, Satin black wheels, and of course the 6 speed manual transmission. I had the Carbon fiber front and rear spoiler options in the very beginning but was told by the dealer that GM wouldn’t pick up my order due to CF shortages. So the Carbon fiber stuff went out the window. Took almost 1 year from the order date to delivery. The car handles amazingly well and has gobs of power. The rev match shift mode is smooth and makes this thing super easy to drive. Clutch feel is very light, transmission shifts are crisp with just the perfect touch of notchiness. It’s super quiet in the cabin, even in V mode. I was shocked at how loud it was when I started it up with the windows down. I have to remember it is a Cadillac, so it will be kinda “refined”. My only 2 complaints: 1 - clutch pedal is a little too light for my liking. I would’ve liked a slightly heavier feel. 2 - No blackwing badging anywhere! The Carbon fiber seat options (which are an insanely priced option) supposedly have a tiny “blackwing” label on the upper portion of the seat. That’s it! I have the base seats, so I didn’t get Jack squat! In any case, the car is absolutely amazing. Saying the car does everything extremely well is not an exaggeration!
