About Dodge Charger Daytona
The original Charger Daytona, or 'winged warrior' as it was
affectionately referred to, became an instant classic with its racing
pedigree and one-of-a-kind styling and performance. Beginning in 2006,
with the new Charger, special Daytona editions were offered for four
consecutive years through 2009. Now, Dodge is reintroducing the
historic nameplate on a limited production, highly customized Charger
for the 2013 model year.
