    #5 Of The Dodge “Last Call” Series:  Charger King Daytona

    Dodge is unveiling No. 5 of 7 "Last Call" special edition models: the 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona. Based on the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody, it's a tribute to a West Coast drag-racing icon of the 60s and 70s. It's also the rarest special edition so far, with only 300 slated for production.  

    The "King Daytona" is named after William “Big Willie” Robinson, who nicknamed his 1969 Dodge Charger “King Daytona”. Dodge says he used it not only in claiming victory at the drag strip, but also in keeping racers on the track and off the streets. It honors the original by bumping performance to 807 horsepower and pairing a Go Mango exterior with unique orange interior accents.

    “The special-edition Dodge Charger King Daytona honors a true icon of muscle car history,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “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.
