Between 1966 and 1987 the Dodge Charger morphed from 2 door fastback Muscle Car version of the Dodge Coronet to 2 door Dodge Omni platform sub compact.
When Chrysler reactivated the Charger model in 2005, to replace the front wheel drive Intrepid, it was as a 4 door sedan / saloon that shared the same platform as the 4 door Chrysler 300.
Ralph Gilles and Freeman Thomas are credited as being responsible for the design of the car which to my twisted mind remind me of MC Esher’s Curl Up robots.
Unlike the Intrepid which it replaced the Charger features Hemi V8 engine options and is either rear wheel drive or four wheel drive.
This 2007 Charger Daytona R/T features a 350hp 5.7 litre / 345 cui V8. The 20 inch chrome alloy road wheels are part of the package.
The transmission is a 5 speed Tiptronic automatic.
For the 2007 model year 1500 Sublime and 1400 Plum Crazy Charger Daytona R/T’s were built for the US market, no other colours were available with this model.
Seen at Kernow Mill this Daytona R/T is believed to be the 876th of the 1500 Sublime cars built.
Performance times include rest to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 150 mph.
