When Dodge announced the 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition it announced a price of $88,490 – excluding destination charge. Not very sure if it is really a fair price for a Charger, but we guess for a car limited to only 501 units is not that bad. Especially if you consider that a “base” Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody starts at $83,495.
Now, we all know that dealership can increase these prices to pretty much whatever they want. Now, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a Dodge dealership in Florida wants to sell you a Charger for more than $100k. In fact the dealership has two Daytona editions on sale: one for $108,215 and a second one for $106,420. Would you pay the extra $20,000 just to get a special edition Charger?
As a reminder, the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition pays tribute to the 1969 Charger Daytona and will be offered in four different exterior colors: B5 Blue, Pitch Black, Triple Nickel and White Knuckle.
Under the hood there is a supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI Hellcat V-8 engine with an extra boost of power: 717 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. A revised powertrain calibration, available only on this limited-production model, boosts the rated power output by 10 horsepower to 717 at 6,100 rpm.
Also, in oder to distinguish the car from a regular Charger, the Daytona edition also gets a unique “Daytona” decklid and rear-quarter decal with matching spoiler.
