2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee: 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show

Follow Joel

Dodge is bringing the heat to LA next week, or should we say the stinger, as it will debut the 2012 Charger SRT8 Super Bee. Designed for hard-core enthusiasts and muscle car junkies, it was only a matter of time before this blast from the past was brought back for the latest generation Charger.

Starting with the SRT8 as a canvas, the Super Bee retains the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 and five-speed automatic transmission. Power numbers don't change, but 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet is nothing to sneeze at. The Super Bee edition Charger will features the 392 HEMI badge, which was brought back for the 2010 Challenger 392 model.

The Super Bee model will be available in pitch black or stinger yellow, and features a graphics package on the exterior. Inside the cabin, the cloth performance seats will feature a Z-stripe with yellow and silver striping. Of course, the mandatory Super Bee logo will be embroidered on both front seat headrests. Each Super Bee model will have a unique dash plaque and the instrument panel will show the Super Bee logo upon start up.

Interestingly, the Super Bee logo on the front fenders highlights the SRT brand for the first time. This is likely an attempt to solidify the newly minted SRT brand.

The 2011 Charger SRT8 Super Bee will be available for order in December, with vehicles hitting dealer showrooms in the first quarter of 2012.

Stay tuned for more details as we attend the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show next week.

  1. It looks great with much significantly more official Super Bee badging and it has the bigger Hemi in it as well. However, I just don't think it looks as mean as my yellow 2007 Super Bee because it doesn't have a functional hood scoop. The front end looks so short. I guess I'll just have to stick with my weak 425 HP 6.1L Hemi. The black faring on the back reminds me of the yellow Daytonas Dodge has released.

  2. I agree with Davin the Bee and the Jacket both should feature fresh air systems and a more distinctive hood package, even as an option. Otherwise, both are impressive insects. BUZZ BUZZ !!
