The new 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Daytona packs 717 hp

Dodge just unveiled the most powerful Charger ever, the 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition, which has 717 horsepower.

Fifty years after the launch of their first Charger Daytona, Dodge strikes again with a limited 50th Anniversary Edition. Its decklid and rear-quarter decal written “Daytona” and its matching rear spoiler, which gives the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition the look of its ancestor.

The supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine has also something more to make this edition even more special. Indeed, Dodge increased the output by 10 hp to give it a total of 717 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.

Although the pictures only show the blue painted Charger, the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition comes in four colours. They are Pitch Black, Triple Nickel, White Knuckle and, of course, B5 Blue, which is an exclusive colour available only on the 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition.

Just like the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, the 2020 Charger 50th Anniversary will be limited to 501 copies. The reason behind that is because back in 1969 that was the minimum number of copies in NASCAR’s rulebook to qualify for use on the NASCAR circuit.

“The Dodge brand continues to push the boundaries of performance with the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world, the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.
