2012 Yellowjacket New

Found a 2012 Yellowjacket for $40,991. Only 47 miles and never been titled. Does this sound like a good buy? About $8k less than a 2013 with comparable features.

What does everyone think?

It is a 6 speed manual with sunroof.

Sounds like a deal to me. Finale cost for mine after added sunroof , upgraded sound system. glascoating, undercoating,extended warrenty was over 50k. About the only thing different in the 2013 is the launch control which I believe is only on the auto trans , not sure about that.

6 speeds have it as well... but only on cars made November 2012 and later.

Price might be a bit high now that they are releasing the SRT Core line for just under $40k. No options, but I think they might drag 2012 SRT's down in price a bit.

What's in it? My sticker was $52,000 and bought it for $47,000. It has every option available.
With no options the 392's are very well equipped.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

2012 Yellowjacket New

That's a smoking deal.
Specially a 6 speed. There aren't too many manuals. Dealers in my area have them on their lots sitting for 9 months now. All autos. I had to drive 70 miles away to get a manual.
I got mine about 6k off msrp. And back then (9monthsago) there wasn't any rebates. Just dealer discounts.
So I say that's a great deal.

Yellowjacket

Any idea on how many were produced? Never did have any numbers on the 2010 RT Classic in Det Yellow.

Actually, the DY's production numbers have been identified already.
2010 DY: 592 R/T Classics and 595 SRTs They just haven't been able to break down how many auto's and six speeds, estimate is 60% auto's 40% six speeds of total numbers. DY is one of the lower total production colors.

What the yellow jacket turns out to be will be interesting to find out.
