The Spring Festival of LXs, better known as Spring Fest, has become the premier annual celebration of LX-platform vehicles for SRT® and Chrysler brands. With owners from across the world gathering in Irvine, California, the event presents the perfect canvas for SRT to introduce special editions of vehicles. This year was no exception as SRT debuted a special-edition Charger 392 appearance package during the eighth annual edition of the event.
Mark Trostle, Head of SRT Design, was at Spring Fest to reveal the Charger 392, which was shown in TorRed with black accents on the hood and roof and sporting the iconic ‘392’ badge on the front fender. The 392 fender badge is gloss black with a gray insert within the 392. The interior of the Charger 392 introduced at Spring Fest features a serialized dash plaque on the instrument panel.
“It’s a cool package,” said Trostle. “When you think of old school muscle cars, you think of black accents and this car kind of handles that in a new way. Not the whole hood is black, just a portion of it and we’ve done it in gloss black versus a matte black. It definitely has a presence to it.”
The Charger 392 that was unveiled at Spring Fest rolls on black Vapor Chrome wheels, which are a signature to the SRT brand with the Chrysler Group family of vehicles. Also, adding to the “tough” look of the car is the fact that the hood bulges are painted in black, giving the hood a two-tone look and finish. The roof and rear spoiler are also black, as are the mirrors. A heavy accent-traced stripe with a decal starts at the front fascia and runs to the corner of the rear fascia and reads “SRT.”
“The stripe and decal complement the black on the upper side of the car really well and ties into the black on the wheels,” said Trostle. “It creates a really cool look. Plus, it has the badging of SRT on the side as well.”
To match the ‘392’ moniker on the 392 Charger, a limited run of 392 cars will be produced beginning later this model year. Available colors will be: Bright White, Billet Silver, Plum Crazy, HEMI® Orange and TorRed.
