New Car: 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee

Dodge plans to celebrate some of its historic performance cars with two new special-edition models of Street and Racing Technology (SRT) products. The 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee and Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 Yellow Jacket each wear an array of visual changes to make the cars stand out from the crowd.

Mechanically the two cars are unchanged, continuing to house a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 that pumps out 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The Charger is available in either Stinger Yellow or Pitch Black paint, with unique stripes and graphics on the hood and trunklid, as well as unique 20-inch wheels. The fenders wear “392 HEMI” badges, and the front grille features a 3D helmeted bee logo.

The Charger’s interior receives a new three-spoke steering wheel, yellow and silver stitching for the seats, and an embroidered Super Bee logo on the front headrests. Super Bee logos also have been added to the dashboard and in the software of the Electronic Vehicle Information Center screen.

The Super Bee package is designed to recall Dodge Super Bee cars of yore, starting the 1968 Coronet. From 1971, the Super Bee package was made available on the Charger.
