There will be a swarm of high-octane news next week at the LA Auto Show as our friends at SRT will pull the wraps off two new models that will leave the competition running for cover. First off the line is a familiar face to musclecar enthusiasts and Dodge fans alike. Our beloved Super Bee is back for 2012 and its packing a 470 horsepower 392 HEMI® in its stinger. The Stinger Yellow exterior color will warn fellow car junkies that youre not messing around. If stealth mode is more your game, you can also get yours in Pitch Black. As with prior Charger SRT8 Super Bees, all the good stuff is in there, like Brembo brakes, Goodyear F1 Supercar three-season tires, and unique interior and exterior graphics that will make one fine road machine.
If two-door coupes are more your thing, youll really like what our Challenger team has come up with. Our folks went scurrying through our archives and stumbled across a box with vintage concept car photos. In it they found images of the Yellow Jacket concept based on the 1970 Challenger R/T convertible. That was all it took to send the SRT team into high gear to create a modern hardtop version using this cool name. This 2012 Challenger SRT8 Yellow Jacket will be a special edition model, and will have cool black body side stripes applied to the Stinger Yellow painted body. The interior will also carry the same theme with standard leather seats featuring an exclusive Stinger Yellow accent band with an embroidered Yellow Jacket logo. Like its Super Bee cousin, the Challenger SRT8 Yellow Jacket comes with the ground pounding 392 cubic-inch HEMI® along with a new two-mode adaptive dampening suspension system.
Look for both of these cars to begin their migration to your local dealer by the first quarter of 2012. But you better hurry these two specimens are few in numbers.
