The Dodge brand of Auburn Hills’ Stellantis announced the fifth of seven “Last Call” special-edition vehicles with the introduction of the 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona, which harkens back to a famous figure from the 1960s and 1970s West Coast drag-racing scene — William “Big Willie” Robinson.
Robinson nicknamed his 1969 Dodge Charger “King Daytona” and used it not only in claiming victory at the drag strip, but also in keeping racers on the track and off the streets. The 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona honors the original by boosting performance to 807 horsepower and pairing a Go Mango exterior with unique orange interior accents.
“The special-edition Dodge Charger King Daytona honors a true icon of muscle car history,” says Tim Kuniskis, CEO of the Dodge brand. “The final Dodge ‘Last Call’ models will continue to celebrate the legacy of the Dodge Charger and Challenger by paying tribute to two vehicles that hold a special place in our brand’s history.”
Only 300 of the 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona “Last Call” models will be produced, all based on the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody in vivid Go Mango exterior color.
The 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona adds an extra 10 horsepower that takes the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye from 797 to 807 horsepower, 20-by-11-inch Satin Carbon Warp Speed wheels, and orange six-piston Brembo brakes to boost performance.
The exterior design is highlighted by satin black King Daytona rear fender graphics, satin black hood and roof graphics, satin chrome exterior badging, a bright Mopar hood pin kit, and a satin black spoiler.
On the inside, Black Nappa/Alcantara “Daytona” seats with orange stitching are paired with a King Daytona interior instrument panel badge; orange interior accent stitching on the instrument panel, console, steering wheel and door trim; a suede headliner; carbon fiber interior bezels; an Alcantara steering wheel; Harman Kardon premium audio system, a power sunroof, and the navigation package.
The 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona, as with all seven of the “Last Call” special-edition models, will be allocated to specific dealerships, with pricing and dealer information shared on DodgeGarage.com when vehicle ordering opens later this fall.
