Anyone interested in American automobiles in the 60s of the last century has heard more or less a classic Dodge Charger. Just for this reason I will tell you about a less popular version of Charger, bearing model designations Daytona.

The story begins in early 1969, when the headquarters of Chrysler obvious tension prevails. The most important figures of the Dodge and Plymouth come together to decide how to improve company performance in the series NASCAR.

Just a year ago, things were perfect. Team Mopar race driving Plymouth Belvedere, while behind the wheel is the best player at that time Richad Petty. Victories come one after another, but suddenly everything turned upside down. At the end of the 1968 competition in the face of Ford pulls the track Ford Torino Talladeda and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler and pulls far ahead and on top of that fifth star and suddenly decided to terminate its relationship with Mopar and move to the side of the sworn enemy of Ford .

In the current environment so the chances of Dodge and Plymouth for winning are zero. Because of this double defeat by Chrysler convened an emergency meeting. The conclusion is one – speed! In order for their vehicle to beat the oval of Daytona have speed increase by at least five miles per hour. By Chrysler Experts estimate that their racing car must maintain a speed of 194 miles per hour (310 km / h) was enough to two possible solutions. The first is to be stepped motor racing Hemi, resulting in a power increase of 85 hp and the second – to reduce wind resistance by 15%.

After lengthy debate the first option was rejected for the simple reason that at that time the unit operates at the limits of their abilities and power increase would mean an entirely new and costly development. This choice is on improving aerodynamics. The model that has been chosen is the second generation Dodge Charger, which has excellent performance, but because of too stupid to front lost much in terms of obtekaemost. Furthermore, the car is very unstable at high speeds.

At that time, in the late 60’s, so called. wing is well known, but no one used it in racing NASCAR. Engineers at Dodge, however, make the first move and install this spoiler with a tackle volatility car. The second thing they do is the installation of a new, highly tapered front end, which is a logical extension of the standard “cut” face. This additional detail cars with extended 450 mm, but significantly improves its aerodynamics and top speed respectively. The new car is called the Dodge Charger Daytona.

But to be able to participate in competitions to design a series of at least 500 civilians copies. The problem with them coming from the rear wing, and in particular the inability to open the trunk. So it was raised to the height of 800 mm., But the drag coefficient remains quite low – Cx = 0.28. Clamping the car to the track is also very good and the Dodge Charger Daytona became the strongest car on the track.

The first track tests are quite strange. Because of espionage by the competition of Daytona is a small carburetor, but it reaches a speed of 328 km / h When installed true – the figure exceeds 390 km / h On top of that the team is back and Petty, the King called by fans. After his debut season, however Dodge Charger Daytona was replaced by the more rapid Plimouth Superbird.
