Dodge Launches Drag-Focused 2023 Charger Super Bee

Dodge Charger Super Bee gets drag radials, special graphics

  • Scat Pack Base gets quarter-mile tweaks

  • Just 1,000 made in only two colours


Number two in the Dodge Muscle Car Send-Off is the 2023 Dodge Charger Super Bee. The second “Last Call” model will be a Scat Pack car that’s tweaked for the drag strip including a revised suspension and drag radial tires on the rear.

This one’s going to be extremely limited and won’t give you much in the way of choice. There will be 1,000 built in total, for all markets. 500 of them will be a B5 Blue narrowbody car and 500 will be the Scat Pack Widebody in Plum Crazy.

Dodge is making them well equipped with the Plus group package and the carbon/suede pack, but the car gets (we’re sorry) a swarm of special content. Scat Pack’s 6.4L 485 hp V8 is unchanged.

Super Bee badging starts the process with graphics on the hood scoop and rear fenders. Narrowbody cars get 20-inch by 9.5-inch wheels that are knurled to help stop the wheel from spinning in the tire on a hard launch. Widebody cars get 18 by 11-inch drag wheels, the former wearing 275-width drag radials, the latter 315s.

Charger’s adaptive suspension system is tweaked to offer a Drag Mode optimised for drag strip launches. There is a Mopar hood pin kit because it’s cool, SRT hood with functional scoop and heat extractors, and red four-pot Brembo brakes.

On the inside, the cars get a Super Bee badge on the instrument cluster and Super Bee seatback logos.

Dodge will be putting these out around one a week leading up to the end of September. Then the seventh will be held back until the 2022 SEMA show in Las Vegas this November.
