Embracing the Future: The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept

You knew it was coming. Now Dodge has taken the wraps off the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept.

Dodge’s first-ever electrified performance car breaks new ground and showcases several patent-pending innovations. Among these are the front aerodynamic R-Wing, Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust, and eRupt multi-speed transmission.

The concept’s look is unmistakably Dodge. Unlike the modern-day Charger sedan, the Charger Daytona SRT Concept sheds two doors and features styling cues reminiscent of the car’s late 60s design. The vertical exterior grille and taillights feature light-up Fratzog badging and cross-car illuminated lighting.

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept’s contemporary interior is a state-of-the-art wonderland. Ambient Attitude Adjustment Lighting irradiates the interior’s parametric texture. The center console houses a fighter-jet inspired cap that flips up to reveal the starter button and the console also features a pistol grip shifter. A button on the steering wheel allows the driver to switch on Auto, Sport, Track and Drag modes, which also changes display graphics, sound and interior illumination.

Bet you’re wondering if it’s fast? Yes, it is. The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept’s 800V Banshee propulsion system is so fast, it can outpace the Hellcat. And with standard all-wheel-drive, it can hold its own in wet and inclement weather.

“The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept exists because performance made us do it,” Kuniskis says. “Dodge is about muscle, attitude, and performance, and the brand carries that chip on its shoulder and into the BEV segment through a concept loaded with patents, innovations, and performance features that embody the electrified muscle of tomorrow. The Charger Daytona SRT Concept can do more than run the car show circuit; it can run a blazing quarter mile. And when it comes to product cycles, it outruns Darwin. Charger Daytona does more than define where Dodge is headed, it will redefine American muscle in the process.”

We’ll just have to wait and see if the concept actually sees the light of day. And if so, will it still be a coupe? We can only hope at this point.
