Two names from Dodge's past return for 2012 with the Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee and Dodge Challenger SRT8 Yellow Jacket. Both are appearance packages with interior and exterior add-ons including exterior graphics and embroidered seats with nostalgic flair. No additional performance upgrades are part of the packages.
The Super Bee name originated in the late 1960s and made an appearance on the previous Charger generation. For 2012, Super Bee Chargers are available in Stinger Yellow or Pitch Black exterior colors with unique graphic appointments for each color. The outside of yellow Super Bees have satin-black hood graphics; black cars have charcoal graphics. Yellow models also get a matte-black rear spoiler and black cars’ spoilers are body-colored. Both color choices have 20-inch wheels with painted black highlights.
