Earlier today, the Dodge//SRT announced that they will debut a limited edition 50th Anniversary 2020 Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT Daytona Widebody this weekend at the Woodward Dream Cruise. The limited-edition Daytona model will only have 501 units made, just like the original 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona). While it may be confusing that a 50th Anniversary model would not be based on a 2019 model year vehicle, Dodge is pulling no stops to build more excitement off the highly-anticipated 2020 Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT Widebody.
A unique “Daytona” rear strip with matching spoiler, as well as a Daytona-exclusive B5 Blue paint (yes, B5 Blue is out across the lineup for the 2020 model year), are throwbacks to the Daytona from 50 years ago. Thanks to a revised engine calibration, the 50th Anniversary Daytona gets a horsepower bump to 717 horsepower, 10 more than the standard Charger SRT HELLCAT, while torque remains the same at 650 lb-ft. shift points have been moved up to 6100 RPM in automatic mode.
“The Dodge brand continues to push the boundaries of performance with the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world, the Charger SRT HELLCAT Widebody,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Today, with the introduction of the limited-production Charger SRT HELLCAT Widebody Daytona, we are both recognizing the Dodge brand’s performance heritage and staying true to our roots by offering high-performance, collectible vehicles that continue to defy the trends and deliver attainable performance that can’t be found anywhere else.”
The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT Widebody Daytona will be available in four exterior paint colors. The choices will include, B5 Blue, Pitch Black, Triple Nickel, and White Knuckle. On the B5 Blue, Pitch Black, and Triple Nickle colored cars will feature a white stripe scheme, while the White Knuckle cars will receive blue stripes. The HELLCAT badge will also get a bright finish to offset the unique look.
The cars will feature the 20-inch x 11-inch “Wrap Speed” wheel design with a unique Satin Carbon finish, that harkens the 2015-2018 Dodge Charger SRT392 cars and is wrapped in Pirelli 305/35ZR20 all-season performance tires (three-season performance tires are optional). The car also gets ultra-high performance Black Brembo six-piston front and four-piston rear brakes with vented rotors, for awesome stopping power.
Inside, SRT HELLCAT Widebody Daytona gets a set of unique black heated and ventilated Nappa leather with Alcantara Suede performance seats with blue accent stitching, highlighted by the “Daytona” logo embroidered seatbacks. Both driver and front passengers feature 12-way adjustable power functions. Blue accent stitching appears throughout the interior on things like the center console armrest, door panels, armrest, dash, and shifter handle.
A suede headliner, carbon-fiber instrument panel (I/P), console bezels, and a Light Black Chrome flat-bottom steering wheel also highlight the interior of the new HELLCAT Widebody Daytona. Premium velour-bound floor mats accented in blue stitching also are exclusive touches to the limited edition model.
An instrument panel badge also denotes the vehicle’s production number out of a total of 501 units.
The 50th Anniversary 2020 Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT Widebody Daytona, will be shown to the public for the first time this weekend, on Saturday, August, 17th, at the Modern Street HEMI Shootout (MSHS) lot during the annual Woodward Dream Cruise in Pontiac, Michigan.
