I love the front and overall look but think they whiffed on the tail lights.

I love the new style there. Classic round tail lights would have clashed with the angular look of the rest of the car.

The NEW corvette is seriously one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen. They nailed it. Every time I see one I just stare.

The z06 is supposed to come out next year, and it is supposed to be insane.

"Preliminary numbers from the Z06 guys peg the new LT4 at 625 horsepower and 635 lb-ft of torque, figures that knock on the door of the previous-generation ZR1"

I have no problem with the angular look. I just don't like all the plastic crap they put around the lights. Makes it look cheap.

What ever I am nit picking. Overall it is a great looking car and amazing performance for the price.

the new high performance camaro is pretty freaking awesome too, I mean, it's a legit track car whereas the hellcat is more of a straight line drag car. I tip my cap to all the big three for all these relatively affordable HiPo coupes (Ford Mustang variants, Chevy Camaro & Vette, Chrysler Challenger variants).

Very First Dodge Challenger Hellcat Sells for a Mind-Boggling Price


I thought when Dodge announced that the new Hellcat Challenger was only going to cost $60,990 brand new, my head was going to explode. They somehow managed to shove as much power under the hood as an exotic supercar, but kept it actually obtainable.

Yesterday, my head did explode after I heard what someone paid for the very first one. $825,000. Yup, more than 13 times the base MSRP for a brand new Hellcat.



Obviously, it was in an auction setting, and this huge sum isn’t without purpose. All the proceeds will go to Opportunity Village, a Las Vegas-based institution helping those with intellectual disabilities — and that’s a really, really great thing.

Being 13 times more expensive, though, it does come with a few extra fun bits. ‘Supercharged’ badges here and there, documentation, memorabilia, and an iPad mini fully loaded with some sweet vids and photos of the car they just bought.

Lest you forget, the Dodge Challenger Hellcat comes with a 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged V8 and holds the title of the world’s most powerful muscle car. Probably one of the most expensive new muscle cars ever sold at auction, too.

He wants a Supra instead so I think that answers your question. He watched Toyko Drift or one of those in that series and needed a rice rocket. Oh, and he drinks Espressos.

The whole american muscle vs euro/jap sports car argument is so stupid.
I am a car enthusiast and I don't understand the hate for foreign sports cars.

American muscle cars are a blast, but have you ever ridden in a EVO, STI, Rx7 TT, 300zx TT, or a GTR? All of those cars are unbelievable.

I own a muscle car, but when you say "Rice Rocket" I hope you are refering to this....



not this...

Love the GTR. If a large sum of money drops in my lap that is the sports car I would buy.

Nothing wrong with liking drift cars. I didn't understand the fascination with it until I saw Tokyo Drift and watched Initial D. It explained a lot of the ins and outs of drifting from using specific cars and why to the sport's appeal.

My guess is, you could take a stock Mustang GT or Camaro SS and dump $30-40k worth of modifications into it and get a faster car. Don't get me wrong, I think it's really cool, but I always look at the car's specs in relation to the price paid. Maybe i'm wrong, but that looks like a $70,000 car.

You can even get a Shelby GT 500 for $55k, then trick it out. The claim is the Challenger beat it by .3 seconds, and that would be pretty easy to make up with 15k extra to spend.
The price is surprisingly "affordable" for what it is.
That said, this week at the Barrett and Jackson Car auction in Vegas, a one of Hell Cat sold for ~$850,000

I just picked up a 2008 Mustang GT convertible for $18K. it has 23k miles on it, previous owner babied it. Threw some new SVT 19 rims on it, staggered,with some Michelin pilot sports. put some new 4:10 gears on it, lowered, dual Pipes exhaust and aftermarket air intake. Had it dynoed and wow, it's a beast. Not sure how I would even handle that much horsepower that the Hellcat has.

You can find a lot of great deals on Mustangs out there. Not so much with Camaros and Challengers. They seem to be very predictable in price. I think there are just tons of Mustangs sold that better deals are to be found.

It is difficult to even find a V8 Challenger for $18,000.
