I’ve always thought of November as the bland month of the
year. You know, not quite autumn and not quite winter … the
counterpoint to March, I guess. (Not quite winter and not quite
spring.) November represents grey skies, fallen leaves, sudden wind
gusts and a general lethargy that’s hard to shake.
SRT is adding blazing color to the November blahs with two upcoming
public debuts at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8® Super Bee and the
2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8® 392 Yellow
Jacket will be unveiled starting with the start of media days
Nov. 16 in all their resplendent, sunlit yellow glory.
Want color? Here are the cars for you. The Challenger SRT8 Yellow
Jacket features a Stinger Yellow body color and black grille to
match the standard black body-side stripes that highlight the newly
developed Yellow Jacket logo on the rear fender. The Charger SRT8
Super Bee is available in either the popular Stinger Yellow
exterior paint or Pitch Black, with special Super Bee graphics.
These exclusive models reflect a specially designed modern and
extroverted interpretation of the classic muscle car – a
performance-driven roadster built for speed.
“The 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee is a salute to the
fun-loving past of Dodge muscle cars powered by the legendary 392
HEMI® V-8 in a back-to-basics performance machine,” SRT
and Motorsports President/CEO Ralph Gilles said. “The
Challenger SRT8 392 Yellow Jacket adds another piece of performance
car nostalgia to our rear-drive muscle coupe lineup in 2012.
"The Stinger Yellow paint and interior accents speak directly to
the performance enthusiast who appreciates a memorable and
collectible color that helps deliver even more excitement and
A limited number of 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee and 2012
