I know this video is in Spanish, but the 1080 HD footage of the Granite Hellcat driving around and parked is amazing.

1:24 to 1:33 mark is a nice angle shot.

Just skip it when hes talking. But in my opinion, knowing Spanish, this guy has the most elaborate, detailed, on-point review I have seen so far for the Hellcat. He delves into the finer points of the design changes like no other video. I just wish it was in English. I think he is from Peru and absolutely loves this car.

Also, some M6 track footage at the end, not driven too hard though.

Enjoy:

I'm torn because now it is between the black/black-wheel Hellcat combo and the Granite/black-wheel/satin-black-hood Hellcat combo.

Greatttttt....

I was all set on black and now you show me this.....lol

The Granite looks incredible....I like how it gives just a bit of contrast as opposed to the pitch black, but its still menacingly dark.....

This is going to be a last second decision for me now......TorRed is also still in the running but it's slipping hard.......
Thanks for the Video!!

^ on point. Its dark enough to still maintain an aggressive serious appearance, but allows the contrast of the black wheels, dark front grill, spoiler, and subtle black accents all around, and those brembos just pop out like never before.

I wonder what it would also look like with a satin black hood.

I love during the burnout at the 10 second mark, you can see tire smoke being extracted through one of the hood vents!

Also, I am sure that even if this car set no performance records, it would set the record for "most rubber burned up by automotive reporters".

raceheart; totally, totally, totally.

We get a bunch of wing nuts trying to out-squawk each other, and none of them put the effort in to do a complete review of a brand new model.

You have have to translate for us! The granite is pretty awesome looking! I am ready to sell my 2012 Blue Streak Pearl SRT8, Air Force colors.

Yeah I know. I thought about a translation. It is a very eloquent, professional, and well composed review.

However, my Senior Design UCF Engineering project document is due next week and really don't have the time.

Yes! Great video. I too, think I would love the Granite/black satin hood combo. Haven't seen it yet.

I really appreciated the track video. He seems to be an experienced road course driver getting to know the track and car.

From watching the video it seemed like he was not an overly experienced track driver but either he was great at heel toe or the stick car does rev matching on downshifts too. I find it hard to heel toe these cars. The again, I was never good at it in he first place. Has anyone commented on whether or not the manual cars will do rev matching?

Flat Top says the manual has rev matching and launch control..........
