Two new Dodge performance cars, the 2012 Charger SRT8 Super Bee and the 2012 Challenger SRT8 Yellow Jacket, will be introduced next week at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Both cars are powered by the new 6.4-liter Hemi V8, which makes 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.



The Challenger Yellow Jacket comes in Stinger Yellow, with its own unique graphics package.


Powering the 2012 Charger Super Bee and the 2012 Challenger Yellow Jacket is the automaker's largest, most potent Hemi V8, a new 6.4-liter unit rated at 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Mated to a standard five-speed automatic transmission in the Charger and a choice of five-speed automatic or six-speed manual in the Challenger, the engine enables 0-60 acceleration in less than 5.0 seconds. Top speed is 175 mph with the automatic (182 mph in the manual-equipped Challenger).


The two cars share a number of features, notably new 20-inch five-spoke cast-aluminum wheels with black painted pockets, Brembo brakes with painted calipers and an SRT three-spoke performance steering wheel with paddle shifters.


The cockpits in both cars are described by Chrysler as "race-inspired," with sport seats, accent stitching and custom graphics.


The Charger Super Bee is offered with a choice of Stinger Yellow or Pitch Black paint with graphics.
