Dodge Debuts Charger, Challenger SRT8 Special Editions at 2011 L.A. Auto Show

1994734644-1425510233187

Inside the Super Bee are seats with silver-and-yellow striping along with an embroidered Super Bee emblem, a helmeted bee with wheels for legs. The logo also appears on the multimedia screen and front grille.

The 2012 Challenger Yellow Jacket is yellow only, featuring a blackened grille, body stripes, embroidered logos on the silver-striped seats as well as wheels with black highlights. The original Yellow Jacket was a Dodge Challenger concept vehicle from the late 1960s.

While the SRT8s are as powerful as most buyers desire, it’s still strange to see a special edition without some kind of performance modification even if it’s simply a different exhaust.

Charger Super Bee and Challenger Yellow Jackets will be on sale in the first quarter of 2012, though pre-orders start in December, just in time for the holidays.
