I stepped up to a '12 Bee from a 2010 300S. Love the handling, its so much tighter, the Brembos are outstanding, the looks of the SRT's to me is the 2nd biggest factor after the 392. My wife likes the new Daytona but she knew that I would never be happy with anything we got unless it was an SRT.
I have seen some '13 Super Bees advertized for $43k and SRT8's going for $47-$50k +.
You might find some deals on some leftover '12's.
All depends on the drive you want to do. I got mine for 5k under MSRP. Drove over 600 miles to get it. Also that was right before winter and alot of people aren't buying cars like these. Alot of dealers mark them down sometimes just have to put in work and look for it. The dealer i went to still has a red one for 4 grand off. What area ya live in?
Had to register on this site to help ya out lol.

O thought you said charger. I dont know about the 300's. They might have em marked down to just have to look. I knew the 300 was out of my range so I passed on it. Plus I love the way the charger looks.
Crap, I missed that too. Your looking at $48-$55k.
I upgraded from a 300S, I always like the ride of the charger better. The C SRT is bad as well in its own right. I got tired of getting pulled over in my 300, kept getting Profiled. Got pulled over on the way back from the dealership after having it appraised. Told my wife we were getting the Bee no matter what. I've been pulled over 8 times in 3 different states and never given a ticket. I wanted to put a sticker on my rear window that said "I dont deal drugs and I'm white".
In the category, yes, hands down the SRT8 is the best value, period. The only reason you'd go with something else is because it's slower, or you care about the hood ornament and how people perceive you.
There's a $3k price difference between the Charger and 300 US, and your best bang-for-the-buck option is the SuperBee. We almost bought one, but the wife hated the yellow, and I don't have the patience to own a clean black car. 2013 Bees are available in white. I'd recommend the paddle shifters as a minimum if you're going the SuperBee route.
We drove everything else that could be considered competition with or without 4 doors: S4, S5, S6, CTS-v, C63 AMG, M5 (2009; no 2013s avail in May), ZL1, Boss 302. Nothing comes close to offering this amount of grin and utility for this little coin. That should be SRT's mantra.
