The 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona has one of the craziest body styles ever designed, but there is method to the madness. By optimizing the aerodynamics, they were able to make the car go like the wind.
According to Car Folio, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona features an adjustable rear wing, pointed nose-piece, hidden headlights and an air dam underneath to smooth out the bottom of the car so the air moves around it more efficiently. That is just the tip of the iceberg on the ways Dodge engineers designed this beauty to be faster and more powerful for the NASCAR Circuit.
A perfect mix of power from the big 440 cubic inch engine and optimized aerodynamics helped to make this one of the premier muscle cars of the sixties. Have a closer look in the video below, and SHARE if you're a fan!
