Just wondering if there are any other MOPAR 17 owners out there in Challenger Talk Land?? I realize there are only 81 other possible owners of the Contusion Blue variety, but there are 80 possible owners of the Silver variety as well...gotta be at least one other on here!!! :grin2:

The dealer that my car is coming from has one, I actually test drove it to make sure that I wanted to get the manual transmission.
I love the paint and interior but was shocked that it didn't have upgraded brakes or wheels.

I think they wanted to use the WR2 wheels to help contrast with the black paint and black Hellcat wheels might have been too much black and they didn't want that look, plus that's another 2 grand in cost. Could have them optional I guess.

And on the transmission, they're all M6's, no automatic was available.

So it drives alright?

There is 9ne locally here too. But I can't see paying 15k more than a Scat for the upgrade.

It's definitely cool though.

I purchased #12 right after Christmas... baton rouge, la...Marked down to 51k. I looked at Hellcat for the power but looks were plain. I ran across mopar 17, didn't know much about them but loved the paint scheme. It's a great conversation piece and gets plenty of compliments. It won't see the rain and stays covered when not driving it.

I'm not an owner of one but when I was seriously looking back in Oct-Nov there were two new blue ones available at two different dealers here in the Phoenix area. They were not budging on them. I know at least one of them WAS still for sale earlier this month, not sure about the other one.

EDIT - I just looked now, they are both gone now.

My local one still has 2 of the 3 it got last year.

There's a couple dealers in the more rural areas of AZ that still have NEW 2016 Challengers for sale :) I don't think they order very many to begin with.

I think pics don't do it justice. Looks better in person. I agree with some that it is kind of overpriced but you won't see one going down the road very often. I don't even see many shakers in my area and if I do they have the 5.7. Nothing wrong with it just saying. Most dealers are pushing the less expensive 6 cylinders.

It's very common for them to be advertised or listed incorrectly.

There were two in St. Louis for a long time. I think one finally sold? Both were listed as Scat Packs only. I think one got down into the upper $40s before it sold.
