Dodge Charger Daytona
In the late ’60s, Dodge was desperate to go racing in NASCAR, and the Charger was the perfect candidate. However, since NASCAR cars already approached high speeds of almost 200 mph on newly-constructed superspeedway tracks, aerodynamics played a crucial role in a car’s performance and results.
So Dodge decided to go all out and create a racing car with a special front end, flush rear glass, and a prominent rear spoiler. The Charger Daytona was one of the first cars to be developed in a wind tunnel and used new materials in construction. The Charger Daytona was a one-year-only model (1969) and a low 504 examples left the factory (via Supercars).
