    Sounds like a good plan. Unfortunately a lot were ordered with those options. But since you are looking for a manual, you’re already ensuring you aren’t getting a fully loaded car and therefore saving money. Auto trans is around $2800, and black hood is around $1,000. That’s a lot your saving there.
    Edit - I checked my window sticker and the auto 8-speed HP90 trans is a $2,995 option.
    The power sunroof costs $1,995!
    Dang, that’s about $5,000 for those two options. But I wanted an auto, didn’t care for the sunroof.
    And I believe the black hood is about $1,000 or more. Not sure because I didn’t get one. So you can save about $6k if you buy a car without those 3 options.
    The summer tires are $595 on my invoice. So worth every penny.

    I don't know why you're asking me. I'm super good at spending other people's money.

    I can't predict yet when it may occur but it should be soon. I will make sure I get pictures up on here as soon as I have them. Thanks again for all of the great comments and support. I've been through 3 R/Ts since Feb 2012 thinking I was done but the "next" one should be it.

    My wife got me to go to the dealer today to start the conversation with them. I provided my needs and he is working on a possible deal right now. It is for a new 2017 Yellow Jacket Hellcat with black hood stripes. No other options on the window sticker and he found it in the wild in PA. I would still need them to swap out the all season tires for the summer tires.

    Any ideas on a range of prices? With this one option (no extras like sun roof, etc.) I'm thinking around $59K

    Major Update!

    I am now the proud owner of a Hellcat!!!

    My wonderful wife worked with me on a deal for a new 2016. What a tremendous early Valentine's Day gift!

    It is Pitch Black, has Sunroof, brass monkey wheels, summer tires, black and Ruby nappa leather interior, and red seat belts.

    I promise to get some pics up later tonight.

    Wow what a super car.
