6. 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona
To the F&F connoisseurs, it’s no secret that Dom Toretto had muscle car blood running in his family. And if his 1970 Charger R/T wasn’t extreme enough, perhaps you should go for a 1969 Dodge Daytona. The original Dodge Daytona was a NASCAR homologation special based on a Dodge Charger 500, but with a wild body kit. That wedge-shaped nose and huge rear wing were to reduce drag and improve downforce, thus enabling higher speeds on the superspeedways.
As a car specifically for stock car racing, the Daytona had huge success on the racetrack. In fact, it changed NASCAR forever in that short period of so-called Aero Racers. Today, the original Dodge Charger Daytona costs well into six figures, with the most expensive one fetching close to a million. In all honesty, that price is fair, since they are prized collector cars Dodge produced in limited numbers. They’re incredibly attractive, as well.
They offered the Fast & Furious movie Charger Daytona for sale for $125,000, yet it wasn’t an original Daytona, but a car they modified for the movie. Visually speaking, it had a shorter and lighter nose and a considerably lower rear wing. But, the main difference came from under the hood, because the movie car had a 430 HP, LS-3 V8 engine from GM. Some car enthusiasts might say that’s a sacrilege, but it was all in the name of movie magic.
