Following the apparent success of the Dodge Charger Super Bee... Chrysler has not only brought back the Super Bee for 2013... but is planning a Chrysler 300C SRT8 Core model, according to reliable source oh20...
...The Charger SRT8 Super Bee, which drops some equipment and adds Super Bee graphics, was, according to oh2o, responsible for nearly a third of domestic Charger SRT8 sales, appealing to those who want the performance but donít care as much about the frills. The SRT8 will still be very well equipped.
The 300 SRT8 Core will likely have the SuperBee's non-adaptive Bilstein shocks, non-adaptive exhaust and cast aluminum rims instead of forged. I also expect it to be without cooled seats, adaptive cruise, sunroof, heated/cooled front cupholders.
What I hope is that unlike the SuperBee, the SRT seats remain, and the paddle-shifters are made standard instead of optional. It'll be interesting to see if the 8.4" screen stays. At the price drop they're talking about in the article ($5k+), I suspect it'll be a base-model 300 with the 6.4L, and SRT exhaust, suspension and wheels I mention above.
Oh, and Merry Christmas.
