I've never been much of a fan for comparisons of Mopar to other cars as a basis for deciding it's worth. Who cares what the other car companies have to offer as a comparison? The car itself is the only thing that needs to be considered.

For me, those kind of comparisons are a bit like sitting down at a restaurant and making my menu selection based on what I think will taste better than what the guy next to me gets. I prefer to choose what tastes best to me.

And I think the Hellcat is one of the tasiest things Mopar has ever offered.

Saw the brand new ZO6 at Barrett Jackson here in Vegas last week. One word Meh. I would take any hellcat any day over this car. It looks way too star wars for me.

I like the new Vettes in the light blue color they have but I would absolutely take a Hellcat Charger or Challenger over one

Are you not entertained? Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?

I agree I like blue better in general. My 2010 Dodge pick up is deep water metallic blue. I love blue. That color on the Vette looked blah. I would even take a regular SRT-8 over that new Vette any day. It just looks too Darth Vader. LOL

It only looks good in black

All the slats, scoops, etc that are painted black make the car look like a fast & furious reject

Shame, because mechanically the car is GREAT!

Funny though - the Hellcat Charger will run neck and neck with it as long as the Charger nails the launch perfectly

You right every other color I've seen it in except black or dark colors make it look like something put together in a transformers movie. I'm sure mechanically it's a great car. I'll still take any Hellcat over it any day and never look back.

I hate the look of vettes... They start like the viper, but then it gets too flashy, and then, it ends with a big flat square arse. Only the tip of the spear looks decent.

Me too

You trade off track quality handling in return you get room for 5, luggage, and a lower price.

As for the styling, you nailed it with the transformers comparison.

For my ultimate sports car, I prefer more natural beauty and not excessive slats and plastic pieces - smacks of Pontiac in the 80s!

Give me something like this:



or this
