Dodge is headed to the Woodward Dream Cruise to launch a new variation of the 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody named the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition. Paying out tribute to the 1969 Charger Daytona, this run of just 501 units joins the ever-expanding record of unique-edition versions for Mopar fans.
The 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona and Plymouth Superbird had been created to dominate NASCAR racing, and the two vehicles featured pointed, aerodynamic noses and tall, basket-deal with rear spoilers. Dodge only produced 501 Daytonas in 1969 to homologate it for racing, and this automobile is restricted to that very same manufacturing complete.
Much more than just stickers and badges define the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition. The supercharged six.two-liter V-eight will get a tiny added energy to boot—10 ponies, to be exact, for a complete of 717—thanks to a software program calibration special to this model. That tends to make it the most-strong Charger ever supplied.

The previously eye-catching Charger Hellcat Widebody, with its fender flares that include three.five inches to the width, will get far more visual distinctions with this commemorative edition. The principal giveaway is the contrasting decal stripe across the rear fenders (the place the paint is permitted to present via to type “Daytona” logos). It also has a special trunk lid and a rear spoiler that is a lot shorter than that of the unique. The layout of the paint stripe, even so, suggests the taller spoiler of yore. The stripe is white on the car’s 3 darker paint finishes (B5 Blue, Pitch Black, and Triple Nickel). Opt for White Knuckle paint and you get the stripe in blue.
The 20×11-inch “Warp Pace” wheels also get a satin gunmetal finish for added pop. They are mounted on 305/35R20 tires at all 4 corners. Dodge tends to make all-season tires common and provides summertime tires as an choice.
Within, Daytona versions get black leather and Alcantara seats with blue contrast stitching and “Daytona” seat back embroidery. This stitching also seems on the center console armrest, door panels, dashboard, and gear selector. The flat-bottom steering wheel has the two blue and silver stitching. A badge denoting the Daytona’s manufacturing variety will be utilized on the passenger side of the dash.
Dodge will show the Daytona to the public at the Woodward Dream Cruise on Aug. 17. The brand will then get started taking orders for the Daytona, and other 2020 Charger versions, this fall, and the 1st vehicles will hit the market place in early 2020.
