The Dodge Charger and Challenger as we know them are going away right after the 2023 model 12 months, so Dodge is celebrating with a series of 7 Final Contact designs, the fifth of which was unveiled Wednesday.

That fifth installment is the 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona, which joins the Challenger Shakedown, Charger Super Bee, and Challenger and Charger Scat Pack Swinger designs. Dodge will reveal an additional Final Contact model Sept. 21 prior to displaying the ultimate seventh model at the 2022 SEMA present, which begins Nov one.

The King Daytona is a tribute to 1960s/1970s-era drag racer William “Massive Willie” Robinson, who raced a 1969 Dodge Charger named “King Daytona,” and also utilized the auto in a campaign towards street racing.

The contemporary King Daytona is based mostly on the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, but bumps output from the supercharged 6.two-liter V-eight by ten hp for a complete of 807 hp. Orange six-piston Brembo brake calipers assist rein in the pace made by all that energy.

The unique edition also will get a Go Mango exterior with a satin black hood, spoiler, and graphics. Hood pins and twenty-inch Satin Carbon Warp Velocity wheels comprehensive the exterior adjustments.

The interior has black nappa leather/Alcantara seats and an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel. Orange contrast stitching on the seats, instrument panel, steering wheel, center console, and door panels ties the interior to the exterior. Dodge also throws in a Harman Kardon audio program, a sunroof, and navigation.

Manufacturing is restricted to 300 units and ordering info will be announced in the fall. In addition to the Final Contact designs, all 2023 Charger and Challenger designs will attribute signifiers that they are the final of their type. Although this will differ from model to model, all will come with a commemorative plaque beneath the hood bearing the scripts “Final Contact,” “Created in Auburn Hills,” and “Assembled in Brampton.”

The retirement of the present Charger and Challenger can make way for an electrical muscle auto based mostly on the Charger Daytona SRT idea and scheduled to go on sale in 2024.
