Posted by on

2013-Dodge-Charger-Daytona-6512013 Dodge Charger Daytona is one of the best performance vehicles with the most distinctive visual stance and it is going to make its debut at the Los Angeles International Auto Show. The reintroduced Charger Daytona will include two trim levels – R/T and R/T Road & Track, which will offer customers the unique style of the historic Daytona package with all the modern performance and technology.

Its powerful HEMI V-8 engine delivers exactly 370 horsepower (272 kW). The rear-wheel drive and iconic design, as well as the unique interior and exterior styling enhancements, perfectly combine heritage, performance and value.

The exterior colors are one-of-a-kind and include: Daytona Blue, Bright White, Billet Silver or Pitch Black. In addition, the Daytona package features special dark trim that builds upon the Charger’s iconic muscle car design. Satin Black adorns the front crosshair grille with heritage “R/T” badge, the custom vinyl hood graphic, roof wrap, rear R/T spoiler and the “DAYTONA” graphic on the rear quarter panels.

Furthermore, to be even more perfect the Daytona has to run on special set of wheels. Here the designers have chosen 20-inch five-spoke polished aluminum wheels with Gloss Black painted pockets.

Daytona models also include a ‘Daytona Blue’ engine cover, performance 3.06 rear axle ratio, high-speed engine controller, paddle shifters with sport mode and performance steering and suspension.

What about the interior? This Dodge’s Road & Track trim features black performance Nappa leather and suede heated and ventilated seats with Daytona Blue stitching and piping. On the other hand, the R/T offers the same appearance in a custom sport cloth seat. “DAYTONA” is embroidered in blue into the upper front seat backs.

Even more, the 8.4-inch Uconnect Touch screen and gauges on the instrument panel can be easily seen, as well as the trim around the shifter and cup holders on the center console. All of them are surrounded by dark brushed aluminum trim.

The final touches here include a Mopar bright pedal kit, a 552-watt 10-speaker Beats Audio System and a special numbered “DAYTONA” badge on the instrument panel that features the build number of that specific Charger Daytona model.

2013 Dodge Charger Daytona will be available in dealerships in the beginning of next year and will be produced in only 2500 examples, each with a serialized dash plaque. It price will begin at $33 000.
