So, two nights ago someone posted a Kijiji ad stating one of the local dealerships here in Windsor, Ontario had a Hellcat in the showroom; I went down there today to take a look only to find TWO HELLCATS sitting in the showroom... IN CANADA!!!
It gets better; the Challenger is being sold as "new-ish" or as a "demo" or whatever they're calling it, has 2242km on it, damage to the front spoiler (someone was using the Hellcat to measure curb heights I guess) and they still want $75,000 FOR IT!!!
It was explained to me that it was a company car for a Chrysler Exec and Provincial was able to buy it - how they can get away with charging $75k for what most SRT enthusiasts would consider a USED CAR is beyond me.
The Charger was brand new though (9km on it I think) and was going for $74,000 and change.
I recently had a deal "go south" at this Dealership and took my Hellcat business elsewhere - I had a conversation today with the General Manager about it who expressed "his disappointment" (sarcasm) but appeared to seek comfort in the fact that Hellcats are being allocated using "something of a lottery" and stated it was "highly unlikely" that my order would be filled.
Was awfully nice to point out that I received my VIN three days ago.
He also didn't like the fact that I was critical of their "no test drive" policy on SRT's because I asked to drive one of their 2015 392 SRT Challengers in December (when I hadn't yet made up my mind on the Hellcat) and was told I could "sit in it - or maybe drive it around the parking lot" LOL!
To think I purchased my current SRT from these guys, only to be treated like a stranger. If you guys are reading this down at Provincial, maybe take it as a lesson on how NOT to treat paying customers.
Here's some eye-candy from today's visit (along with the first picture I've seen of a CANADIAN speedometer that goes to 340km/h)
