Dodge is going totally retro with this Charger. To celebrate Charger's return to NASCAR Nextel Cup racing at Daytona International Speedway, Dodge introduces two limited production 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T models. The colors are retro in themselves, "Go ManGo!" and "Top Banana" are colors from MOPAR's past. The Daytona edition will also boost horsepower to 350. Maybe it's the red-neck in me, but I think these things are cool and it is a good PR move by Dodge to do it. More info and pics at the link.

The orange color is ?Go ManGo!?. Mango. Get it? The 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T model will be distinguishable by an exclusive front fascia with a chin spoiler and black honeycomb grille, unique black ?Daytona? and ?HEMI? decals, signature heritage R/T badging and a black rear decklid spoiler. The Daytona model also will include large, bright, dual-exhaust tips and 18-inch polished wheels with low-gloss, jet-black painted pockets. The powerful HEMI engine will feature a HEMI-orange engine cover.
The 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T will feature a five-speed automatic transmission with AutoStick and a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine that offers an estimated 350 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque ? ten more horses than the previous 5.7-liter HEMI.
By using a less restrictive intake system and moving to a straight-through muffler from a three-pass muffler, the newly tuned 5.7-liter HEMI gets a 10-horsepower boost and a throaty tone to match.
The interior of the 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona R/T will feature front seats with suede inserts and embroidered ?Daytona? logos on the front headrests. Body-color accent stitching will appear on the front and rear seats and on the leather-wrapped steering wheel. Matching body-colored center stack bezel, a ?Daytona Limited Edition? display on the electronic cluster and a sequentially numbered limited-edition Daytona badge on the instrument panel will complete the unique Dodge Charger Daytona R/T interior.
