Dodge will show off two new SRT models at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show. Officially dubbed the Challenger SRT8 Yellow Jacket and the Charger SRT8 Bumble Bee, the special edition muscle cars will feature several interior and exterior upgrades over their traditional SRT counterparts, along with bright yellow paint jobs.

Inspired by the 1969 Dodge Yellow Jacket concept car, the striking Challenger SRT8 Bumble Bee features a Stinger Yellow exterior finish coupled with black stripes, unique 20-inch alloy wheels, and yellow jacket logos on each rear fender. The souped-up Challenger also carries its yellow theme inside, where it's fitted with silver stitching, embroidered yellow jacket logos and leather upholstery accented in Stinger Yellow.

Meanwhile, the four-door Charger SRT8 Super Bee is designed to recall the 1971 Charger's Bumble Bee Package. Exterior upgrades to the unique Charger include a 3D helmeted bee logo in its front grille, fender-mounted "Hemi 392" badges, unique 20-inch wheels and "Super Bee" decals on its rear fenders. While the Charger SRT8 Super Bee shown in L.A. will be finished in Stinger Yellow, Chrysler says the sedan will also be offered with a Pitch Black exterior finish.

Like the Challenger, the Charger SRT8 Super Bee also features a unique, yellow-trimmed interior. Chrysler says the Charger's cabin features Super Bee logos throughout, from its dashboard to its headrests and even the in-dash Electronic Vehicle Information Center. Stitching throughout the interior is finished in yellow, while a silver stripe runs the length of the sedan's front seats.

While neither model receives any upgrades under the hood, there's little need to improve on the standard engine. That's because both limited edition models feature Chrysler's monstrous 6.4-liter Hemi V8, whose horsepower and torque figures each stand at a muscular 470.

According to Chrysler, the Challenger SRT8 Bumble Bee and Charger SRT8 Super Bee can be ordered starting next month, with deliveries beginning in the first quarter of 2012. We expect to find out more details, including finalized pricing, when the sporty special editions make their debut next week in Los Angeles.
