2020 Dodge Charger Daytona Wrecked After Just 296 Miles

Accident / Comments

That didn't take long.

Last year, the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition was unveiled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona that raced in Nascar. As a tribute to the iconic race car, the limited-edition 2020 Charger Daytona features 20-inch silver wheels finished in Satin Carbon, a lip spoiler, a unique decklid, and an extra 10 horsepower under the hood.

Only 501 examples are being produced, but now there's one less 2020 Charger Daytona in the world. Customer deliveries only began earlier this year, but it didn't take long for one of them to be destroyed in an accident.

Sadly, this brand new 2020 Charger Daytona only lasted 296 miles before it was reduced to a mangled wreck. If you're looking for a cheaper way to own a 2020 Charger Daytona, Copart is currently selling the wrecked muscle car in Van Nuys, California.

The circumstances of the accident aren't known, but the crash must have been nasty judging from the damage this 2020 Dodge Charger Daytona has sustained. The hood is crumpled, and the front fascia and bumper were ripped off in the crash. Both airbags also deployed in the accident.

This was a very expensive mistake, because the 2020 Dodge Charger Daytona starts at $74,140. According to the VIN, the owner paid a total of $80,725 as they loaded the special-edition Charger with optional extras. Since the Charger Daytona is so rare, many dealers have capitalized on the demand and are charging extortionate markups - some have been spotted being sold for as much as $108,000.

Under the hood, the 2020 Dodge Charger Daytona is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 tuned to produce a substantial 717 horsepower. Clearly, this was too much for this owner to handle.
