Today, Ram unveiled a new Ram 1500 Rumble Bee concept to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the original Rumble Bee, itself a commemoration of the Dodge Super Bee cars.
The Rumble Bee concept is the lightweight two-door, rear wheel drive version of Ram 1500, in matte “Drone Yellow” paint (including bumpers, flares, and ground effects). A new “Speed Bee” design is drawn within a gloss black stripe that fades into honeycomb; the stripe glides front to rear, around the top of the bed and over the tonneau cover.
The truck sits on 24-inch gloss black Vellano VRH custom wheels, with a 2-inch drop (aided by a reservoir shock at each wheel). The grille, hood vents, badging, fuel door and the dual exhaust tailpipes are coated in gloss black.
The interior has also been treated, with black and Drone Yellow leather sport mesh seats held together by two-tone yellow/light-grey stitching. The center-piece is an actual amber-encased bee in the 8-speed rotary shifter knob that lights up to expose a honeycomb pattern background. Two buttons below the knob control exhaust cutouts to bypass the Mopar cat-back dual-exhaust system, allowing the full sound force of a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 to escape.
The 395-hp Hemi has a custom gloss yellow and black engine cover with honeycomb graphic pattern. Mopar’s cold-air intake system gives the Hemi a bump in performance, aided by a 4.10:1 axle ratio.
