Hands down the Hellcat. The 392 and the base C6 are even.
But I guess the weight might be a big issue considering Challenger is a very heavy car compared to the vette!
Plus the C7 has the 7 Speed manual with Rev Matching shifts ! SO i guess that would add to it!

Supposed my freind............Supposed and the actual is a huge difference!
I remember people saying the 392 will be producing somewhere around 500+ hp and what did we end up with ? 470 hp , that was a huge dissapointment for me to be honest! And I don't really like the fact that Challenger is always the last one to get an upgrade, I mean comon look at the Zl-1 absolute gorgeous ride with 580 Hp. The Mustang though great engine and all but they should really look into its design, its getting just too repetative like Porsche !

As a side note, I've seen it in person. I think it looks terrible with the black wheels they are showing it with. The interior is awesome as is the overall shape. The rear end and vents everywhere are a bit much IMO. I love it in pictures, but not as much when I actually saw it.
Ohh well since I am in Saudi Arabia, there is a long time till I get to see it in person! but I hope it looks good!
In pictures it looks just fantastic, specially the black on black ! aghh!!
The issue with Challengers here in Saudi is that you get pre-ordered cars , so it leaves little selection for you!
Plus none of the challengers here get the IE edition Rims that are available on all challenger Srt's in USA or elsewhere!
We still get the same rims the older challenger srt had! So thats a big dissapointment! Plus the price difference is just humangous! Just to give you an example The Jeep SRT8 (2012) here costs 290,000 riyals thats about (78,000$).
The Challenger SRT8 is 55000$. So its kinda huge compared to what you guys get I believe accoridng to the Dodge website!

Haha well I work + study! I get just 30 mins free time in my entire day! So its not really easy, I am hoping to be done with atleast my degree by the end of this year!
I am leaning towards Corvette too cuz I am pretty damn sure that HellCat won't be 600+ HP. Its going to be 550+ ! but less then 600 for sure and it will still be slower then the vette! Even though Challengers are the sexiest cars on the road, I don't want something that handles like a brick at high speeds, I already have a brick ! lol
Though I will miss the AWD launches on the GCSRT8 but well, you lose something you gain something!
