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.
