It will be at a very steep cost.

There are already YouTube videos of showroom price in excess of $85000 on a Hellcat.

On the other hand, you could probably buy a non-Hellcat SRT8 Charger somewhere in the high $40's and put a $7500 Twin-screw Whipple on it with a custom tune and come out $30,000 less than the Hellcat. And for that much, you could take the $30k you saved and buy a really nice 1500 RAM to tow it to the track with.

Good point, but aren't the internals on the hellcats more robust?

Someone just posted a video of a tuned hellcat, it put down 715 to the wheels. So whats that 830ish crank? That's just a tune man.......plus they have everything to go along with it. You get a regular SRT and start modding it to put down those kind on numbers your into all sorts issues, plus huge money. I'll go hellcat all they way, it's headache free.

Got to agree. As crazy as this may sound I would drop 85k for a HC Charger. I mean we pay 70k for the SRT GC, 15k more for a s/c-ed super sedan is not that bad honestly.

Not to derail, but couldn't the same be said for a Hellcat and nonHellcat Jeep if they were to offer it? And I don't want an RT or a 392, I was the factory freak - balls out badass - supercharged monster that is the Hellcat. Modded vehicles are fun, and $30k could pay for a lot of "warranty" work, but that's not for me. Not now.

Anyway, I'd like to see the profit margins between a Hellcat Challenger and a base model or even an RT. The production on these Hellcats is so slow, they have more deposits than they can even fill this year for the Challenger, I think the Charger will be a hot car and they won't find time to make it at this rate.

A lot of you guys probably never thought you would see the day where you could take one of the more popular rental cars ever, put a blower on it, put an MSRP of over $60k on it and make over 700hp... And be backordered probably more than any car in history. I don't recall the last time there has been such demand for a car with absolutely no production to support it.

There are people out there that put very large deposits down in September and at this rate, they will be lucky to even get a 2015.
