November 9, 2011 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The Chrysler Group's Street and Racing Technology (SRT) team today announced an exclusive production run of special-edition 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8® 392 Yellow Jacket models featuring Stinger Yellow exterior paint and interior appointments.
Based on the 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392, the Challenger SRT8 Yellow Jacket features a Stinger Yellow body color and black grille surround to match the standard black body-side stripes that highlight the newly developed Yellow Jacket logo on the rear fender. New 20 x 9-inch, five-spoke cast-aluminum wheels with black painted pockets provide a unique performance look.
Inside, the standard leather seats feature an exclusive Stinger Yellow accent band with embroidered Yellow Jacket logo and silver accent stitching. The driver's seat also features a full adjustable lumbar position with seatback tilt, memory and an easy-to-reach release handle, while the front-passenger seat adds tilt and slide with memory, which makes it even easier for passengers to get in and out of the back seat.
"The Challenger SRT8 392 Yellow Jacket adds another piece of performance car nostalgia to our rear-drive muscle coupe lineup in 2012," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO -- SRT Brand and Motorsports. "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 exclusivity."
The original Dodge "Yellow Jacket" show car, which evolved from the 1970 Challenger, was shown at various auto show exhibits beginning in late 1969. Painted pearlescent Honey Gold, the roadster was powered by the 426-cubic inch HEMI V-8 and carried a number of the famous Dodge "Scat Pack" performance features, such as a unique front spoiler, wider tires, heavy-duty suspension and brakes, and manual transmission, along with the Rallye instrument cluster and shaker hood.
A limited number of 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 Yellow Jacket models will be built for the U.S. market. All Dodge Challenger models are built at the Brampton Assembly Plant in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.
The Challenger SRT8 392 Yellow Jacket will be available for ordering in December at Dodge dealerships nationwide and will be arriving in U.S. dealer showrooms in the first quarter of 2012.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: 707 Horsepower? Hell Yeah! – Ignition Ep. 116
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Universal Technical Institute,
Carlos Lago drives the most powerful production muscle car on the market:
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. While it isn’t the most powerful
production V-8 in the world (which loses to the $1 million McLaren P1 by 20
hp before electric motors), the Hellcat’s 707 hp rating seems too
incredible to believe -- especially when you consider the cost. The
question is whether this Challenger has any brain to go along with its
extreme brawn. Through a trip to the Dyno, the test track, the road,
and a standing mile, we find out.

► 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 on the Track
The 392-cubic inch (6.4-liter) HEMI® V-8 delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 470
(637 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque. The torque band is extremely flat allowing
for strong standing starts and improved straight-line performance
throughout the rpm range. An advanced active intake manifold along with
high-lift cam with phasing provides maximum low-end torque and high-end
power while still delivering up to 23 miles per gallon on the highway with
the standard manual transmission. Performance-tuned engine mounts improve
idle stability and ride control at all speeds.
Standard Fuel Saver Technology (four cylinder mode) in automatic
transmission equipped models allows the engine to operate economically on
four cylinders or use the power of all eight cylinders when needed. The EPA
fuel economy miles per gallon (mpg) (City/Hwy) ratings for the 2012 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 392 are 14/22 for automatic transmission models and 14/23
for manual-transmission models.
A look under the hood reveals unique valve covers with painted silver ribs
and the "392 HEMI" logo, which gives the engine a unique, clean and
The 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 features a standard Tremec TR-6060
six-speed manual transmission and a dual-disc high performance clutch -- a
proven performer that was first offered on the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10®.
The optional five-speed automatic transmission features new, standard
steering wheel mounted paddle shifters that join the center console mounted
Auto Stick, allowing for a choice of spirited shifting on both the road and
the race track. Both methods give the driver the ability to manually select
specific gears on the transmission.
In "Drive," the transmission controller will automatically shift the
vehicle. The aggressiveness of the shifting is defined by the mode chosen -
either "Normal" or "Sport." Fully adaptive electronic control of all
shifting makes the powertrain more responsive while minimizing harshness.
In "Manual," the shift method is defined by the driver choosing to use
either paddle shift or Auto Stick. The "Sport" mode adds a hold function to
the calibration in all gears, allowing the driver full control of the
First Ride: 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat 707 hp
The all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT, with its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI
Hellcat engine, produces an unprecedented 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft.
of torque, making it the most powerful Challenger ever, Dodge's most
powerful V-8 ever and the most powerful muscle car ever.
The Challenger's new 6.2-liter Supercharged Hellcat engine is also the
first factory supercharged HEMI, as well as Dodge and SRT's first
application of V-8 Supercharger
technology. For the first time in Chrysler Group history, the all-new 2015
Dodge Challenger SRT with a Hellcat engine comes standard with two key fobs
-- red and black. The red key fob is the only key that can unlock the full
707 horsepower and
torque potential of the Challenger SRT Hellcat engine; while the black key
fob limits the driver to a reduced engine output of 500 horsepower.
In addition to the awe-inspiring 707 horsepower of the new
Hellcat HEMI, the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has been redesigned
and totally re-engineered to be the most true-to-form muscle coupe on the
market with performance-enhancing technologies inside and out, including
the new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-new
interior inspired by the classic 1971 Challenger.
The Dodge and SRT brands now offer the most complete lineup of muscle cars
in the market, including the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SXT with its
standard powerful and fuel-efficient Pentastar V-6 engine combined with the
TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission that delivers 300 horsepower and an estimated
30 miles per gallon; the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T with the high-torque
5.7-liter HEMI now paired with the TorqueFlite eight-speed or six-speed
manual transmission; and the all-new 6.4-liter HEMI Challenger Scat Pack
that delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft.
of torque with the TorqueFlite eight-speed or six-speed manual.
The 2015 Dodge Challenger and Challenger SRTs are built at the Brampton,
Ontario, Assembly Plant and will start arriving in Dodge dealerships in the
third quarter of 2014.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat (Manual) - WR TV POV Canyon Drive
Some days at work are better than others. Yearning for more seat time after
our stint with the 707hp muscle car in Portland back in July, we happily
accepted the red key at an event held where Kanan Road meets Mulholland
Highway in the lovely hills of Malibu and headed out to the twisting
stretches of picturesque road in this supercharged bruiser – here
equipped with the Viper-derived six-speed manual transmission – with the
Pacific Ocean as our backdrop. Some days, indeed.
Unlike our street drive on the back roads around Portland, this time around
the roads were virtually devoid of traffic, giving the Hellcat a chance to
properly stretch its legs and allowing us to evaluate its 0-60 mph and 60-0
mph manners, along with its handling behaviors on the undulating pavement
of Mulholland Highway and the demanding corners found throughout.
