Dodge Unveils The Fifth Edition Of It’s “Last Call” Series, The “King Daytona”!

In Honor Of Famed Drag Racer "Big" Willie Robinson...

With all the stuff going on at the Detroit Auto Show, we almost forget that Dodge was scheduled to release another of its “Last Call” special editions today. For this run, it is the 2023 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye “King Daytona” limited edition. 

The “King Daytona” traces its lineage to a famous monarch of the 1960s and 1970s West Coast drag-racing scene: William “Big Willie” Robinson, who nicknamed his 1969 Dodge Charger “King Daytona” and used it not only in claiming victory at the drag strip but also in keeping racers on the track and off the streets. 

The 2023 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye King Daytona limited edition honors the original by bumping performance to 807 horsepower and pairing a Go ManGo exterior with unique orange interior accents.

The King Daytona represents the fifth of seven special-edition Dodge “Last Call” models that celebrate the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger, which in their current form are coming to an end. The Dodge Charger King Daytona follows previously announced Dodge Challenger ShakedownDodge Charger Super Bee, and Dodge Challenger and Charger Scat Pack Swinger models.

Only two more “Last Call” models will be announced, with the next one scheduled for next Wednesday, September 21st, 2022, and the seventh and final special edition model (the very last of its kind) at the 2022 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas scheduled for November 1st through the 4th, 2022.

“The special-edition Dodge Charger King Daytona honors a true icon of muscle car history,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge CEO. “The final Dodge ‘Last Call’ models will continue to celebrate the legacy of the Dodge Charger and Challenger by paying tribute to two vehicles that hold a special place in our brand’s history.”

"The King" I'm familiar with drove a superbird.

Not as familiar with the King Daytona or Willie Robinson's story - so the video was educational. The gomango and wheels looks sharp, but was that the color of one of his cars?
