Dodge has been relatively well-known for its Super Bee and Yellow Jacket upgrades for their cars. Most people have seen the old RAM Super Bee before. Now with the Charger and Challenger making good head way for Dodge, the company is bringing them back. This will be the second edition of the Challenger Yellow Jacket and third edition of the Charger Super Bee.
The Charger Super Bee package isn’t much more than a lipstick job on the SRT8 model of the car. As it existed from 2007 to 2009 the Super Bee gets a traditional graphic on the rear quarter panels, a matte black rear spoiler and a gloss-black cross-hair grille. This model is available in Stinger Yellow with a matte-black hood, or in Pitch Black with charcoal-gray graphics for those that don’t want to be mistaken for a taxi. Dodge is set to produce 500 models.
The Challenger Yellow Jacket pays homage to the show car from 1969. It comes only in bright yellow and features a blackout grille, body-color spoiler and a narrowing black stripe across the sides, which will feature a new Yellow Jacket logo and script. Dodge says they will limit production on this model to 1,000.
Both of these cars ride atop 20-inch five spoke rims with painted inserts and recieve unique interior treatments with yellow and silver accents. Being based on the SRT8 models they will feature a powerful 6.4-liter V8 engine that puts out 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
