Dodge continues to amp up the performance of the Charger and its latest creation is the best yet, the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition. The limited-edition Charger packs 717 horsepower, which is an increase of 10 over the standard Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody.
As its name suggests, the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition is inspired by the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona that was designed for NASCAR. The Daytona prototype was the first car to break 200 mph and set a record that stood for 17 years. Only 501 Charger Daytona models were produced and Dodge is keeping the tradition by only producing 501 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition models.
The Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition ups the performance by increasing the shift points to 6,100 rpm in automatic mode, which yields a 10-horsepower boost from 707 to 717 from the supercharged 6.2L V8. To help it stand out, it also gets a unique “Daytona” decklid and rear-quarter decal with matching spoiler. The exterior is finished off with 20- by 11-inch “Warp Speed” wheels with a unique Satin Carbon finish. It’s available in only four colors: B5 Blue, Pitch Black, Triple Nickel and White Knuckle.
Inside there are unique black heated and ventilated Nappa leather and Alcantara suede performance seats with blue accent stitching and “Daytona” embroidered seat backs. It also gets a Dynamica Suede headliner, carbon fiber instrument panel and console bezels and Light Black Chrome interior accents, and a suede flat-bottom steering wheel.
