Dodge Charger Daytona 1969 posters

Dodge Charger Daytona

In 1969, NASCAR had a requirement that any car raced in the series had to be available to buy to the public in 500 or more amounts. As a consequence of lacking the necessary speed, Dodge had to return to the wind tunnel and create one of the most remarkable Chargers, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. Introducing a pointed nose piece, the Charger Daytona got an 18-inch extension to its front, which was the downforce that the engineers were looking for. Nevertheless, the rear end continued to lift at higher speeds, which caused the engineers to place a large wing over the trunk to give stability to the car and its sister car, the 1970 Plymouth Superbird. Due to its size, the wing was 23 inches tall, allowing opening the trunk without hitting its bottom. Besides, modified fenders and hood from the 1970 Charger, and rear-facing scoops above the tires, were introduced in the Daytona's design. Only 503 units of the Charger Daytona were made, all expending 440 Magnum or 426 Hemi power, and displaying striking red, black or white bumble stripes featuring the name "Daytona" in the middle. This "wing cars" had such incredible speed and performance that NASCAR disallowed them from 1971 onward, as a new rule limited the maximum allowable engine displacement to 5.0L (305 in³).
