Dodge followers have been expecting a new edition of the Charger Daytona. Source Mopar392 wrote that the new car would be based on the Dodge Charger R/T Road & Track edition, with the Super Bee’s blacked-out hood; the Charger Juiced’s lower chin spoiler; and a blackout treatment on the roof, spoiler, and front grille. The first batch will come out in Jazz Blue.
The original Dodge Charger Daytona was a short run of cars built solely to allow Dodge to put an aerodynamics kit on their Charger for NASCAR racing; they set speed records of over 200 mph, and came with a choice of the 440 V-8 or the ultimate muscle car engine, the 426 Hemi. Since that model was dropped, the name has periodically been used for lightly modified Chargers, including the pictured (above) 2006 model and a version of the late-1970s Dodge Charger SE which was visually similar to the Chrysler Cordoba. There was also a series of front wheel drive cars simply called the Dodge Daytona.
