Interesting post that the SRT is RED. As my dealers swears no REDS have been built yet. First Black then Sliver, then Red and lastly Mineral?
My Red one has been on order for 3 months no production date yet, which makes me doubt the story also.

Dealers don't have all the answers and will only get you answers when pushed... then the question becomes whether or not the answer is correct.
Have fun,
Matt

Your dealer is wrong. As of today, out of the 340 retail units built so far for the US market, 12 of them have been red.

First rule of talking to dealers, don't talk to dealers.
99.99999% they know don't know jack.

Milous,
Out of 340 units built, how many have shipped?

I guess that red one I was looking at on Thursday then was a mirage. Your dealer is crazy. The dealer I visited said the red ones came in first....which makes sense since I was standing next to it at the time.

Problem was, it was not my vehicle, just the first one the dealer had received. I went to take a look at it and just sit in it/check it out etc. This dealer said they had 5 ordered on the initial allotment and this red one was the last ordered but the first to show up, so their speculation was they built the red ones first. Who knows.

Re: Saw red WK2 SRT8 in person, no test drive (long review)

Mine is red and was built today, pending inspection.... I also really like the red, I'm glad it is sort of a dark red...It gives it depth and makes it look more agressive. I hate those ugly flat light reds like you see on a cheap pick up truck.

I got a 2012 Overland Hemi 6 speed and couldn't be happier. It's a beast...at least how I drive when pushed!
