You can buy GK's, he doesn't drive it anyway.

Also, no I wouldn't buy that car for a daily. I wouldn't buy it at all.

My Ride: '14 Jeep GC
I have 3 people in my office who have daily drive Hellcats. The first guy to get one was 100% red key and spun it into a tree after melting his tires in 5k miles. The other 2 I've yet to see pushed hard, so I'd be surprised if they are using the full HP.

Another guy has been driving his newly acquired lowered 03 Viper to work a lot lately. Very curious to see how long it takes him to rip the bumper off it.

BTW: This is what government contract work pays these days.

Prices on Hellcats are dropping like crazy right now because the demand and hype have subsided. The dealer when I took the Jeep in yesterday had one with a MSRP of $75k or something being offered at $67k before any negotiation. With the Demon coming out, those prices will drop more as you no longer win the d1ck measuring contest.

You're telling me a domestic muscle car isn't holding it's value? Yadonsay.

Not resale value, new selling price. It's all about hype with these cars and with Dodge building to demand, the values just don't stay when the hype goes away. Build a limited volume and they'll stay high 4evah.

Focus RS is only going to be built for two model years so those values will stay high. Focus ST is a dime a dozen these days so the values plummet. Same with Golf R and Subie STI (though that's more of a result of the WRX being a better car )

Inventory for S2000's that aren't wrecked, riced, or modded is weaning fast so values will continue to go up. Ditto for old NSX and other such cars.

My Ride: 2011 BMW 335d
Did I read correctly on jalopnik that the quarter mile time (<10sec) was certified by NHRA, and then subsequently banned because of no cage? Isn't the point of this thing to be a drag strip car?

Great point, how much is this Dodge demon? I would think you can buy an NSX or cobra clone for this money.

From the PR info:

"Production car first: Street-legal drag tires. The Challenger SRT Demon is equipped with a set of four standard Nitto NT05R street-legal, drag-race tires."


And then...

"Challenger SRT Demon is too fast for the drag strip officially banned by NHRA."








Bottom line: It's still a Dodge

It's banned from COMPETING in NHRA stuff, you can still take it to the drag strip and race for pinks if you want.

Its because it needs a roll cage if it posts under 10 second times.
