Dodge’s second “Last Call” send-off special edition broke cover at the end of August, and this time it’s a new performance package for the 2023 Charger with a familiar name: Super Bee.

While last week’s 2023 Challenger Shakedown reveal showed off a car highlighted mostly by a neat striping package, this Super Bee backs up its decal-ing with some performance mods, too. Dodge calls it a “vehicle at home both on the street and the strip,” and to that end will fit all ’23 Bees with standard 275- or 315-mm-wide drag radials (depending on whether or not the car rocks the wide-body flares) as well as adaptive damping suspension with Drag Mode; an SRT hood with functional scoop; and SRT black exhaust tips.

This is only the second of seven Last Call trims for the Challenger and Charger set to debut over the next few weeks, but already we’re sensing a pattern: the Challenger Shakedown was limited to 1,000 examples, 500 in black and 500 in grey; now we’re told this Charger Super Bee will also be capped at a thousand units, with 500 wearing B5 Blue and 500 wearing Plum Crazy and a wide-body kit.

Speaking of the car’s aesthetics, the Super Bee trim will come fitted to Scat Pack cars equipped with the Plus Group and Carbon/Suede Package, and topped off with a massive hood decal, Super Bee badging and rear fender stripe, and logos on the seat backs and  dash.

Dodge promises the Super Bee will pull off “low quarter-mile ETs” but doesn’t specify numbers.

The original Super Bee model debuted in 1968 before becoming a trim package on Charger for ’71, and then ceasing production after that year. Dodge brought the name back on the Charger in 2007 and 2008; and then again in 2012 and 2013.

The automaker still has four more special-edition muscle cars scheduled for roll-out between now and September 21, with the next one coming September 7. A very-last-of-its-kind seventh model will gets its reveal at the SEMA show at the beginning of November to cap it all off. And if you still can’t get your hands on any of those, even base 2023-model-year Challengers and Chargers will get a special “Last Call” plaque under the hood, what with this being the end of the nameplates and all.
