807 hp 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona Latest Last Call Special

Dodge's latest special edition is a bright-orange Redeye

  • King Daytona named after legendary street racer

  • Turns up Hellcat Redeye to 807 hp


The latest Dodge Charger Last Call special edition is a tribute to the West Coast drag racing scene. It’s called the King Daytona, and it is the most powerful of the Last Call cars to be revealed so far. Finished only in Go Mango with orange interior trim.

It starts with a 2023 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. Then it gives that car an extra 10 horses, bringing the total 807 hp. The King Daytona will only be sold with Go Mango paint, and (like most of the Last Calls so far) it will be largely a cosmetic exercise.

This time, it’s satin black King Daytona graphics on the hood, roof, and rear fenders, and satin chrome badges. The six-piston Brembo calipers will get a matching orange, while the wheels will match the badging.

Inside, the King Daytona gets orange trim on the dash, console, steering wheel, and doors. The headliner is suede, the seats and wheel are Alcantara, and it gets the premium stereo and power sunroof. Exactly what an aspiring drag racer needs.

The car is named for the 1969 Dodge Charger of William “Big Willie” Robinson. The racer was best known for helping to transform street racing in Los Angeles, uniting competitors and giving them a place to run. In the wake of the Watts Riots in 1965, Robinson founded the International and National Brotherhood of Street Racers and worked with the LAPD to help diffuse tensions in the community. Robinson helped found Brotherhood Raceway Park in LA in 1974, giving racers a legal place to run.

Just 300 King Daytona cars will be built, split between Canada and the U.S. Pricing and availability come later.
