2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 Yellow Jacket
The Chrysler Group's Street and Racing Technology (SRT) team 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 Challenger SRT8 392, the Dodge 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 Dodge 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 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 Yellow Jacket will be available for ordering in December 2011 at Dodge dealerships nationwide and will be arriving in U.S. dealer showrooms in the first quarter of 2012.

SpeedFactory Challenger in a Supercharged Dodge Challenger SRT8 Grudge Match Drag Race
Mopars at the Strip is an annual MOPAR car show and Drag Race event held at Las Vegas Motor Speedway every year. In 2009 SpeedFactory attended and displayed our 600HP supercharged SpeedFactory Challenger - the first modern Challenger to be supercharged. Next door to us was a supercharged Challenger built by CDC/Group 2. The inevitable occurred - and Rob Wolf, editor of Mopar Collector's Guide, did a "Pinks" style start for the grudge match on the 1/4 mile drag strip. SpeedFactory driver Eddie Rosa emerged victorious with a 1/4 time of 12.374 seconds at 112.66 mph, beating the other car by 4/10 of a second. The SpeedFactory Challenger has the Stage 3 Supercharger package, featuring a Vortech Supercharger at 5.5 lbs Boost, Hotchkis handling package, Magnaflow catback Exhaust, and SpeedFactory Signature package. Installed options include Richmond 3.55 gears and Boze Tach style forged wheels. Everything else on the car is stock 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8. As shown in the video, the Challenger was on street tires. On drags, the SpeedFactory Challenger runs in the 11s. Thanks to our partners at Vortech Superchargers, Magnaflow Performance Exhaust, Richmond Gear and Boze Forged Wheels.
