New Charger Hellcat Owner ...

My name is Lisa and I recently purchased a Hellcat. :) That feels good to finally say!

I ordered a Challenger Hellcat on 9/9 and received a VON followed by nothing. I had put down $5k, purchased at MSRP, and promised a car. After 5 months of waiting, I decided to scrap it and purchase a Challenger Scat Pack (which I did) in December. The desire for a Hellcat didn't go away, though. Since I have a Charger-loving/driving husband (SRT8U) and already had a 2015 Challenger, the Charger Hellcat seemed like a more "practical" choice ... especially with two young children. So, I began searching for something on a dealer lot as I didn't want to order and wait again. I talked to practically every dealer in our local area and region who had a Hellcat of any kind in stock and they all wanted between $25k-$30k over for the Challenger and $10k-$30k over for the Charger. Clearly, there must be people paying that, but I never would, so that was not an option. Tomball Dodge got in a white Charger Hellcat last Thursday that was ordered for the GM and a mutual friend of the owners told them I was looking and they immediately offered the car at MSRP. The deal was done before I even knew the car's specs - I just knew it was white with some color of Laguna and that was good enough for me. Turns out, it has sepia Laguna leather, a gloss black roof, brass monkey wheels and fully loaded. I would have never ordered this combination, so it was fun to just see what I was getting. I'm in love already, and I'm quite ecstatic with how things turned out. The big white beast is scheduled to arrive this weekend, so I'll have lots more to post then.

Here are some photos the dealership sent me.





I asked them to overnight the red keys (because the truck driver has no need for them, and I feel a little closer to my Hellcat having them while I wait for the car), and they arrived today. :)


Here she is waiting at Tomball Dodge for the truck to pick her up (this morning) to head to her new Florida home:


Bernie, Ben and Jeff at Tomball Dodge / Viper Exchange (TX) have been awesome to work with and I'd highly recommend them to anyone. I will absolutely do business with them again! They are serious about cars ...


Glad to be here and thanks for the invite to Ray and the others who kept telling me to sign up here. :)

Hello Lisa, and welcome! Huge GRTZ on your HellCat! I know you are excited, I remember that feeling because I was exhausted ... I barely slept for days! Drive safely when you pick it up, and enjoy!!

I like the black roof, I never seen that before. By the way i constantly promote your Site on here, I bought a lot of stuff for my last 2014 SRT Core and for my Hellcat I bought the Gorilla all Locking Black Chrome lugs and the matching parking brake cover so far.:)

Is the black roof a Dodge option or was it painted by the dealership ?
WhooHoo!
Is the black roof a Dodge option or was it painted by the dealership ?
I remember seeing it as an option when I first looked at getting a Charger HC. It's no longer an option, at least for us Canadians

Yes, it is a factory option. ($1500 according to the window sticker)

Interesting I wonder who paints it cause they leave the plant body colour. When you get the car can you check and look for any paint lines at the front and back glass area as the roof would have been painted with the glass in the car. Just curious on the quality of the job
Lisa best looking charger I have seen to date. The black roof looks amazing on the white but I'm kinda bias :D I'm curious you name is speedlogix is that your company ?

Interesting! Yes, I will check it out and let you know. I've never seen one with a painted roof in person before.

Thanks and you have good taste, I see. Yes, Speedlogix is my company. (We will be vendors on here soon - got that ball rolling!)
