Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition Is A Bonkers Family Sedan With 717 HP

Dodge is gearing up for this weekend’s Woodward Dream Cruise by unveiling the 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition.

Designed to pay tribute to the 1969 Charger Daytona, the limited edition model features a unique a decal and a matching rear spoiler. The car has also been equipped with 20-inch “Warp Speed” wheels that have a special Satin Carbon finish. The latter are backed up by a high-performance Brembo braking system that features six-piston calipers up front.

The Charger will be available in four different colors including B5 Blue which will be exclusive to the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition for 2020. Customers can also opt for Pitch Black, Triple Nickel or White Knuckle.

The unique styling continues in the cabin as drivers will Nappa leather and Alcantara sport seats with “Daytona” embroidery. The car has also been equipped with a suede-wrapped steering wheel, blue contrast stitching and real carbon fiber trim. Other highlights include a Dynamica Suede headliner, special floor mats and an individually numbered badge.

Since the original Charger Daytona was designed for racing, Dodge decided to give the special edition a power boost. As a result, it’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine produces 717 hp (535 kW / 727 PS) and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque. This means the Daytona has 10 hp (7 kW / 10 PS) more than the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody and is the “most powerful Charger ever.”

Dodge didn’t release detailed performance specs, but the standard model can run from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 196 mph (315 km/h). Given the extra grunt, the limited edition could be even quicker.

Production will be limited to 501 units, which is how many Charger Daytona models were produced in 1969. There’s no word on pricing, but the company will begin accepting orders this fall.

    I’m just going to call it the Charger Hellcat 50th Anniversary because I can’t be bothered to remember the rest.

    • SnakePlant

      I kind of like the spec.

    • Bo Hanan

      Adding Dayton to it seems kind of cheap or desparate.

      Best looking car made in 2019.

        Wait, what? It really isn’t. The door handles alone look like they’re from the 90’s.

        • Michael_66589

          Its outdated, but still look damn good, especially comparing to today’s generic cars. It will be great they update Charger, but Chrysler under Fiat management is too lazy to do anything.

  • Bash

    Sweet, I would love to trade in.

  • Jay

    What Ford did with the F150 and Ranger to make the wide Raptor versions is great. The wheel arches/ fender flares look okay on the challenger but doesn’t really fit the charger. I think Dodge could’ve done much better with this “wide body”. That color is great though.

  • Andrewthecarguy

    One thing ruined this car for me: the front seats are so thick that it takes away significantly from the rear room. Would have bought one otherwise…

  • Blinka Bot

    That’s the name? really?

      Extra horsepower per word buddy. That’s how it works!

  • nellydesign

    The overall color scheme of the car, including wheels, makes it look less special than a normal Scat Pack equipped Charger. It doesn’t look at all like it has 717hp. Maybe that’s a good thing. I don’t know. I just don’t like it.

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    This looks tacky, just like the owners who would buy it.

  • William rowe

    I love it, yes the design is old but if you like the car and it makes you happy then owning one is what it is all about, not about impressing critics or anyone else for that matter.
