For 2009 there will be a limited edition Super Bee "BUZZ MODEL" in Hemi Orange with a serialized dash plaque number of 1 of 425. The Super Bee package includes custom wheels with black anodized pockets, exterior decals for the hood and "Super Bee" on the rear quarter, and silver Brembo brake calipers, Orange accent color on the seats. A possible limited edition Brilliant Black Edition (spring 2009)
Again in 2009, the Charger SRT8 is powered by the 425-horsepower, normally aspirated 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 producing 420 lb.-ft torque. The power for the 6.1-liter HEMI is channeled through a five-speed automatic transmission with specially calibrated, driver-selectable Auto Stick, which offers fully automatic or manual shifting selection.
Chassis setup on the 2009 Charger SRT8 includes SRT-tuned dampers, tailored spring rates and suspension bushings, and large-diameter anti-sway bars. For added stability and aerodynamic benefit, the ride height of the 2009 Dodge Charger SRT8 is one-half inch lower than the Dodge Charger.
Handling is engineered for performance with an Electronic Stability Program and ABS with brake knock back mitigation tuned specifically for the 2009 Dodge Charger SRT8.
SRT performance: 0-60 mph in the low 5-seconds, 0-100-0 in under 17 seconds, 60-0 mph in approximately 110 feet.
Charger trim has a new taillight design, the antenna is moved to the rear window. The 2009 Charger SRT8 receives standard dual-zone automatic temperature control, standard heated front seats, new ABS/ESP calibration and retuned suspension.
Will next year be the last year for the SRT Super Bee? Will it get a total new body style? Could it be the lowest production number year for the modern Bee? Could it be the last year of the true modern high performance cars...?
