Dodge is determined to create maximum buzz as it phases out its popular Challengers and Chargers. The second of its ‘Last Call’ special-editions will definitely get fans talking. New for 2023, Dodge is bringing back its popular Charger Super Bee. The 2023 Dodge Charger Super Bee will be the highest performance Charger Super Bee ever produced. It will also be outfitted with true drag radial tires so it will be ready for the street or racing.
“The Dodge Super Bee is more than commemorative of a cool heritage name — it is also a Charger variant of the Challenger 1320 grassroots race package,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “The special-edition 2023 Dodge Charger Super Bee once again offers a Dodge vehicle that is equally at home on the street or on the drag strip.”
Dodge first introduced the Super Bee in 1968. It came out as a Charger model in 1971. Known as a grass roots drag racer, the muscle car reached legendary status in its original four-year run by giving fans a high-performance vehicle that could serve as both a daily driver and a beast at the track.
