2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee

In the history of Dodge sports cars, only a few could rival the Super Bee. Used to designate the best of their muscle cars (most notably the Charger), they are among the most memorable and sought after cars in Dodge history both then and now. So just imagine the hysteria created by Dodge when they announced that they are going to revive the Super Bee name for this generation. This car is the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee.

Limited Edition

This limited edition car, being the carrier of an iconic name, has some massive shoes to fill. But when you look at how it’s made, it just might be able to match the hype. This car, created for the hardcore performance enthusiasts, is packed with features that set it apart from the usual Charger. With special Super Bee graphics and a choice between 2 exclusive paint jobs (Pitch Black or Stinger Yellow), it is guaranteed to stand out in the looks department.

Performance

But the changes in this car are more than skin deep. Decked with a race inspired interior, it is more than enough to get the driver and passengers’ pulses racing. And then there is the engine. An updated 392 cubic inch Hemi engine produces 470 horsepower, providing the sting for this next generation bee. To cap this car off, 20 inch wheels provide an additional punch for both the styling and performance departments.

The 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee is scheduled to be released in early 2012. And based on what we saw, it just might be able to live up to the Super Bee name.

    I did not like the new charger body styles because they looked too futuristic and I said I would never own one, but I now own a 2007 Super Bee and love it. And probably will eventually own a 2012 when the new wears off a bit.

    I like the 1971 and 2007 Super Bee much better. This just look so much futuristic, and I don’t like that in a car
