Okay, I started looking at used HC's. I found an 18 pretty close to everything I want. Here is my window sticker and the Cat Sticker - Give it to me straight. What am I losing by go down a year, what am I gaining besides 200HP!! (yay). Mine has 15K miles, this one has 4K and is of lease.

IF I don't make a deal on this one, it still seems to be the way to go for me used with low miles. Thanks in advance -

That 18 looks nice. You won't be losing anything, you'll be gaining a nicer interior and the adjustable suspension in addition to 707 hp.

I see you're an M6 guy but keep in mind that the Hellcat M6 and axle ratio is totally different. You've got a 2.97 low with a 3.90 axle, the Hellcat has only a 2.26 low with a 3.70 axle. That's the equivalent of starting in 2nd gear with your car so the HC might take some getting used to.

As fast as those Hellcats spin up.....I’d really think about going A8.

Can’t argue about the color of the Hellcat though!!!

The Yellow 'Cat in widebody & M6 isn't something you'll find very many of. If the additional spend is worth it then go forth with the deal.

Honestly after going to an A8 from a 6spd, I would never go back to a 6spd but again it's all up to what you like. As far as year difference I would for sure go with the HC. If it wasn't that I fell in love with the Shaker in 2015 I was going to get the HC A8...

Wow nice congrats

Mopar or No Car
Thanks, I got the Mopar no car covered pretty well. This is going to throw a wrench into my colors though - Guess I'll have to put it in the middle.

Only way to go. I also have a stable of Mopars. 08 Dodge Ram wife's 15 Chrysler 200 S and my 16 SRT. Would not own any other brand.

Did you end up getting a different HC? The Window Sticker showed a Sunroof

Yes, the 1st had 14K and a sun roof, this one is 5K no roof and rear seat delete. Not my favorite part.

I think you should park it in your front yard and stick the “For Rent” sign in the picture right next to it... :ROFLMAO:



Looks great.....
