Default Seen my first Hellcat

Out at Hanna picking up the new truck this afternoon,and they had a brand new lime green Hellcat.
Awesome car,but i think it needs more tire under it
The new owner is a younger guy,and he was giving out rides to just anybody who wanted one,he had a line-up
Supposedly there's a 148 Hellcats allocated to Canada,and get this,the young guy has another due,with a delivery date for next month.
I never asked what he did for a living,but lack of money didn't seem to be an issue

He's not sure he'll keep the second one,i think he's got ideas of making money on it

I agree w the tire comment. Believe it or not they actually offer it w an all season or summer tire. But either way, the reviews are all saying it needs better tires. My buddy says he'll just roast the tires that come with it and then step up to a Pilot Sport. And if I know him, he'll go wider too. He ordered his using his cousin's code (who works at the factory that makes them) and he paid under $70k cdn. I can't remember the exact number but it was a thou over invoice. And there's a brand new one sitting in a showroom here that some guy is trying to sell for $105k cdn. I'd buy any number of other cars for that dough.

I like the charger more. I have driven both the challenger and the charger hellcats. they do in fact need wider tires under them. my charger had 275s on the front and 315s on the back, kept it planted nicely with the 431 stroker and 323 getreg.. I was close to ordering a Charger Hellcat after my charger sold... Price isnt too bad considering the package you get..

I've heard of 2 brand new ones being wrecked on the day of purchase,and i wonder if it has something to do with the cars ability to spin a narrow little 275 tire for probably a 1/2 dozen blocks

I was a little bit surprised to see just a 275 tire under it,that's for sure

I'm guessing if you can afford a HC, you can afford better/bigger tires.

I saw my first hellcat too. It looked mean and nasty just sitting there, like it could rip the soul from a poor unsuspecting person who dared to get too close. The ground shook as the rumbling from deep within told me that the monster had come to life.....then I realized it was just my wife!
