I totally agree with how quickly the GT500 captures your driving desires. I’ve owned a number of sports cars over the years including high end exotics (Ferraris, Ford GT, every generation ZR1, Porsche, etc.) and this GT500 is absolutely the best bang for the buck and an absolute riot to drive. You can readily use the power and handling all the way up the power range without fear. It’s that balanced. You always feel in control. I had Vipers as well, fun car but you need to respect the beast and know your personal limits or you will be in trouble quickly.

Very nice cars and excellent assessments on both vehicles. Thanks for taking the time to be so thorough and straight forward. I can see your overall point that the Hellcat may be a more comfortable and predictable every day driver. That really is it’s sweet spot and how it’s engineered. i believe you will really enjoy the GT500 as you drive it more often. But the GT500 has a slightly different “mission”. Also, try and see if you can find an opportunity to drive a CFTP as many of the points you talk about as it pertains to handling are addressed with the CFTP suspension programming. But, it’s definitely not a Boulevard cruiser like the Hellcat. Enjoy both of your beautiful cars.
