Suppose you’ve got your hands on a ‘Last Call’ Edition of the 2023 Dodge Charger or Challenger. Congrats, you have a rare gem on your hands. With the Hemi V8 engine under the hood, it will become even more special at the end of this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go about adding some of your own modifications to the car, so long as you’re safe about it. That could mean adding Hennessey Performance’s H1000 upgrade package to give your particular muscle car a leg up in the horsepower scene.
A customer ordered the Go Mango exclusively shaded 2023 Dodge Charger SRT King Daytona and then decided to have it sent to Sealy, Texas, for some legendary engineers to tinker with one of 300 examples of the muscle sedan. Hennessey Performance took some time to make this monster even more unique from the factory, with 1,000 horsepower under the hood. Not only that, but the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 Hemi engine also has 948 lb-ft of torque. So, if you’re not careful, this thing will give you whiplash when that red light goes green.
Sending a special car like this to the experts is a safe move, as the package includes a three-year/36,000-mile warranty, chassis dyno testing, and up to 500 miles of road tests. So, the owner of this unique Dodge Charger should have plenty of peace of mind to boot. You could do the same to your Hemi V8-powered Dodge muscle car, even if it isn’t a special edition.
That said, if you want to try and get something like this King Daytona, Dodge has seven ‘Last Call’ models available if eager fans haven’t already snatched them up. This includes the Challenger and Charger ‘Swinger,‘ Challenger ‘Shakedown,’ Charger ‘Super Bee,‘ Charger ‘King Daytona,’ Challenger ‘Black Ghost,’ and the spectacular Challenger SRT Demon 170. The Demon 170 is completely sold out, so you can only obtain it if you keep a sizeable sum of funds and an eye out for it to go on sale at a dealership or auction sometime in the future.
Just remember to take off the pink splitter guard.
