Dealer stores a Hellcat outside in winters!

Would any of you be interested in buying this brand new 2016 Hellcat stored outside in winter?

This is at my local dealer and everyday I see this brand new Hellcat waiting outside since at least August! I'm sure its going to be outside all the winter long and we have some pretty ugly winter here in Quebec with a lot of snow and freezing temperature! Already -20F at this moment and it's not the worst...

That's a sad site fore sure. He probably has it marked up to much for anyone to buy it. I would not want to pay full price+ for one that has sat out 5 or more months. It looks like a nice one too!

Hard as it may be to accept, leaving it out in the winter really won't hurt it a bit unless they neglect to wash it occasionally.

Exactly. I've driven my SRT last winter, driving it again this winter. Its none the worse for wear. Heck, I've got the block heater plugged in right now, as it's -30oC, and I drove it to work.

They're cars, not fragile cherry blossoms.

I doubt any Hellcat owners leave their cars outside uncovered. But, as others have said, the weather will not hurt it.

Yep I know it won't really hurt it for only one winter but I find this unfortunate that the future buyer will probably store it in a garage without knowing that before buying it they left it outside. Also I know this dealer I had such a bad service and really awful car preparation (my last jeep had a shattered headlight and they never noticed it at prep...). I saw the cheap stock they use to clean brand new cars, they don't care and I'm sure they use a cheap brush to remove the snow.

Dealers have a lot full of cars sitting outside, that's what they do??
Just keep the Hellcats inside --- all SXT`s and R/T`s outside!

OMG a car outside!...


it is just another mass produced car, my srt never sees a garage, and I drive it every day.

it will be fine, in reality it is not special in any way, true some people treat them like a cherished treasure, but it is just a car.


hell if I had a Ferrari I would daily drive it....or a lambo, or any car for that matter.
