    Great - 1) Now will they actually build the car? 2) Will it be priced for hollywood star wallets only 3) I'm thinking $50K max and I "might" be in.... This thing most likely will be priced well beyond the muscle heads that want it just like the Viper, rare and rarely seen on the road.

    1) Yes. 2) Probably not. 3) My guess is closer to $85k.

    Uh, why reference the Mustang GT here? This is clearly targeted at the Shelby with 662 HP, no?

    Mustang GT=Challenger R/T
    Shelby Mustang = Challenger SRT Hellcat

    If I recall, the Shelby Mustang will not be produced in 2015, but I agree, it is clearly a Shelby Mustang or Camaro ZL1 competitor - Not a Mustang GT or Corvette.

    You're right, that's a fair point, but it will surely be back in 2016.

    We need one for the LT fleet!, There are sevreal styling changes for 2015, in addition to a new beefed up 8 speed. Improved refinement, these are important changes that are clearly worth reviewing, right?. Did I mention the 707HP?

    707 HP? We have trouble getting 600 on the track. And this with K&W suspension and Continental Semi Sliks. They should have changed first the solid axle, than ad more HP. At least the Hellcat will have a slip limited differential.

    I konow all the musclecars verry good (iam tuner), but still the Camaro is the best, second the Mustang and than the Challenger.

    And my biggest concern is the pricing. When i see what a Viper costs i expect 85k like gloss. So be shure seated good when Dodge finally anounce it :)

    What a waste of power without AWD the platform is made for. Better off in an AWD Charger.
