Hennessey Performance Elevates the 2023 Dodge Charger SRT King Daytona.
The era of the Dodge Challenger and Charger as we knew it has concluded, marking an end to a distinctive Mopar reign. This milestone came into effect when Stellantis stopped accepting orders via dealers by the close of July, symbolizing the close of a monumental automotive era.

Yet, this isn’t the definitive end for the 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger V8 models. Production will only halt towards the year's end. Meanwhile, the elite few with the means and desire to own these mechanical marvels had the opportunity to acquire one of the seven 'Last Call' special editions. A limited 40, purportedly, received an exclusive invite from Dodge to explore the Demon 170 Jailbreak.
Among these seven special series, a few have even ventured beyond North American borders, journeying across the Atlantic to meet their European enthusiasts. But with such exclusive models, how does one amplify its uniqueness?
You might opt for the most 'Dodge-like' variant among the diverse offerings. Alternatively, you could enhance its prowess with the magic touch of a renowned tuner.
That's exactly the route taken by one individual, who bought the exclusively hued 2023 Dodge Charger SRT King Daytona in Go Mango. This prized possession was then dispatched to Sealy, Texas, to be examined by the experts. This domain is, of course, overseen by Hennessey Performance. They recently showcased their modifications that make this vehicle uniquely formidable, amplifying both its factory-made and H1000 upgraded features.
Consequently, the already powerful 6.2-liter supercharged V8 Hemi engine received a tune-up to deliver a whopping 1,000 hp at 6,500 rpm and an impressive 948 lb-ft of torque at 4,200 rpm. This package is complemented with a three-year/36k-mile warranty, chassis dyno testing, and an extensive 500-mile road test. However, fans might be slightly disappointed as the typical burnout or acceleration stunts weren't showcased this time. But there's always hope for the next Hennessey Performance reveal!
