* Dodge revives Super Bee nameplate with limited-edition 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8
* New “TorRed” paint scheme to appear on limited-production 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T, joining Go ManGo! and Top Banana editions
Auburn Hills, Mich., Jan 9, 2006 –
A pair of names familiar to many automotive enthusiasts are again part of the Dodge performance lineup with the return of the Super Bee nameplate for the 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 and the “TorRed” exterior color for the 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T.
“The Dodge Charger embodies modern American muscle, and at the same time, carries on a great performance heritage,” said George Murphy, Senior Vice President – Global Brand Marketing, Chrysler Group. “It was only natural to give a nod to that heritage with the re-introduction of a famous Dodge performance nameplate and a high-impact heritage paint name.”
Bee All It Can Be
The 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee is the first special edition of the “Charger on steroids” from Chrysler Group’s Street and Racing Technology (SRT). It features “Detonator Yellow” exterior color with black hood and deck-lid face, Super Bee logos on front and rear fenders, and contrasting yellow stitching on the seats, steering wheel and shift knob.
Powered by the SRT-engineered 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8 producing 425 hp (317 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. (569 N•m) of torque, the Dodge Charger SRT8’s powertrain represents a new level in HEMI performance, with 85 additional horsepower — 25 percent more than the 5.7-liter HEMI.
Other SRT enhancements include functional, performance-oriented styling, world-class ride and handling, race-inspired interior appointments and benchmark braking. All together, the 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee is capable of 0-60 mph in the low 5 seconds, 0-100-0 in under 17 seconds and 60-0 mph braking in approximately 110 feet.
