The SuperBee does have a lot in common with the SRT8. Their DNA is the same, obviously direct siblings. But the SuperBee is the brother that calls the SRT8 a namby pamby girly man for having his heated seats and cooled cupholders and big touch screen. He's all about speed, speed, and speed.
The SuperBee sheds weight in the form of those afore mentioned luxuries, and is faster because of it. Those heated leather seats are replaced by premium cloth seats with the signature yellow striping and super logos. The giant 8.5" touchscreen radio is replaced by the streamlined 4.3" touchscreen. What's retained from the SRT8 is the steering wheel, and most importantly the powertrain.
The 392 cu in HEMI V8, pushing out 470 hp and 470 ft/lbs of torque remains from the SRT8, pushing the car from 0-60 in 4.4 seconds and posting a 1/4 mile time of 12.8 seconds @ 112.6 mph. Those numbers are as tested by Motortrend magazine and would improve with some stickier track tires.
Now these vehicles are going to be very limited in production, so if you want a piece of MOPAR and automotive history as well as one of the most attitude on four wheels, come order a 2012 Dodge Charger SuperBee from me.
