Chrysler's muscle sedan goes retro with limited-edition Daytona package, set to be unveiled at the LA Auto Show this week.
Daytona is a name inexorably intertwined with Dodge. The nameplate was used on a sport hatch in the 80s and 90s, and on a Ram truck trim, but most will know it as a version of the Charger. The Charger Daytona first appeared in 1969, and again when the Charger was revived in 2006. The model disappeared in 2009, but is now back again with the car you see here. The 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona is a limited edition of just 2,500 models packing the Charger R/T's 5.7-liter Hemi V8.
That gives you 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque, but what sets the Daytona apart is its trim package. Available in Daytona Blue, Bright White, Billet Silver or Pitch Black, the Charger Daytona is distinguished by its satin black hoot strips, roof and spoiler. The Daytona name is emblazoned across the rear fender and packs unique 20-inch two-tone wheels. The cabin is finished with blue piping and stitching, dark brushed aluminum trim, special pedals and a 552-watt Beast audio system. Buyers can choose between R/T ($32,990) or R/T Road & Track ($36,495) models, representing a $2,995 or $2,500 premium over the stock models, respectively.
