Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee & Challenger SRT8 Yellow Jacket

2011 LA Auto Show

The Los Angeles Auto Show will be buzzing at the sight of these Dodge special-editions.

Scheduled to arrive in showrooms in the first quarter of 2012, Dodge will unveil their fresh takes on past icons at the LA Auto Show next week in the form of the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee and the Dodge Challenger SRT8 Yellow Jacket. First introduced in 1968, the Super Bee was revived in 2007 on the LX-body Charger and now lends its name to the 2012 Charger powered by the 'back-to-basics" 392 HEMI V8 performance machine.

Delivering 470hp and 470lb-ft of torque backed by a 5-speed automatic transmission, the new car has a 0-62mph time of under 5 seconds and a quarter-mile time at the wrong end of 12 seconds. Top speed has been clocked at 182mph. Available in Stinger Yellow with satin-black hood graphics or Pitch Black with satin-gray graphics, '392 HEMI' badges feature on the front fenders and 20-inch alloys complete the performance upgrade. The interior of the Super Bee features cloth seats with yellow & silver striping, silver accent stitching and Super Bee logos embroidered on the headrests.
