looked at a 19 hellcat today

local dealer has a pc 19 hellcat with black laguna leather so i figured id go check it out even though it is an automatic. so i get there and it has a black dual snorkel hood. now personally i like the old hood better but the satin black paint made the car look so cheap. i thought it really took away from the car. black hoods work sometimes but to me it was a swing and a miss. this is a high end muscle car its not a stripped down roadrunner. i bet a carbon hood would look good but for me id rather see more pc purple on that hood. i didnt even grab a salesman i couldnt get it with that hood.

I never did get the black hood thing either but I guess on some colors it's not too bad. One color that the black hood looks terrible on is Pitch Black. You've got this beautiful shiny black car then you put a dull primer looking hood on it and it just looks terrible. Same effect as a black car with a black vinyl top back in the day, never looked right to me.

I've never understood the black hood thing either... I think it looks terrible, personally. Same with black roof. To me, it kinda looks like the part was replaced and just never repainted... :-)

Although, I'm old fashioned - I don't like lowered cars either - to me, they just look like the suspension is worn out. :-)

I'm not a big fan of matt black hood, roof, and deck lid but sometimes think they look cool on the TA's. Especially not a fan of the price. If I got a wild hair for matt black maybe a wrap would be a better option, costs less and can easily be removed.

I'm not a fan of the SRT black hood - looks as if someone got a new hood, was impatient and installed in right out of the box with the e-coat only.

The T/A versions have a bit more texture in the paint, but the $2k option on SRTs just doesn't resound with me.

Ya for the money they charge that flat black hood looks horrible

I wish I didn’t have so much invested in my 09. And the fact that I don’t want a 1500 a month payment. And that mine is paid for otherwise I would get a red eye.
Guess it is best to just be content with what I have. There will always. Be better and faster.
