1969 Dodge Daytona Resurrected in New Form With 717 HP

Dodge is going all out for the upcoming Woodward Dream Cruise by revealing the 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition. The car is built to pay homage to the 1969 Charger Daytona. The special edition model comes with a distinctive sticker and a matching trunk spoiler.

Riding on a set of 20-inch “Warp Speed” wheels that feature a satin gunmetal finish, the car is also equipped with high-performance brakes from Brembo with six-piston calipers up front. The Charger will be offered in four color variants including Triple Nickel, Pitch Black, and White Knuckle. As for the B5 Blue, it will be the special color of the 2020 Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition.

The interior is as unique as expected. Upon entering the car, drivers will be welcomed by black Nappa leather and Alcantara sport seats that have the “Daytona” name embroidered on them, as well as a suede-wrapped steering wheel. The Charger Daytona also gets blue accent stitching throughout the interior and real carbon fiber trim. Strengthening the car’s identity is a custom badge on the passenger side dashboard.

Originally, the Charger Daytona was born to compete in the racing world. With this in mind, Dodge revived the nameplate for the new special edition vehicle with a power bump. Now the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 unit delivers 717 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. It’s 10 hp more potent than the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody, making it the “most powerful Charger ever.”

We still haven’t gotten details on the performance specifications, although we know that the base model can reach 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and max out at 196 mph. So, more power simply means that the limited edition car could run faster.

Dodge will limit the production of the special model to 501 units, which is the same production number for the 1969 Charger Daytona. Pricing hasn’t been announced till the moment, but the automaker will start taking orders in the fall.
