Dodge knows its key demographic includes older males looking for retro muscle with today’s tech. It also knows these buyers are no-B.S. when it comes to special editions, so it must deliver the goods on all fronts when charging extra for a special paint job and graphics. The all-new 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition offers all this and more.
This long-named special-edition Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody gains the Daytona deck-lid strip with a matching spoiler, the 3.5-inch wide widebody package, 20-by-11-inch Warp Speed wheels in a satin-carbon finish, Pirelli 305/35ZR0 all-season tires, black-painted Brembo six-piston calipers up front and four-piston calipers in the rear, and more.
Inside, the upgrades continue with a Daytona number plate on the passenger’s side of the dashboard, Daytona badges embroidered into the Nappa-leather-and-Alcantara seats, blue accent stitching, a Dynamica Suede headliner, carbon-fiber instrument panel and console bezels, light-black-chrome interior accents on the suede steering wheel, premium floor mats, and more.
As I mentioned earlier, no matter how good its visual updates are, Dodge knows its buyers want some extra pop behind the wheel too. This comes via a 10-horsepower boost, pushing the 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine to 717 horsepower.
The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition will hit showrooms in early 2020. There is no pricing info available yet, but you will want to get in line ASAP, as like the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona this rig pays homage to, Dodge will limit it to just 501 copies.
