2013 Dodge Charger Daytona to debut at L.A. auto show - Autoweek TV with Andrew Stoy
Also in this episode: Bernie Ecclestone wants a bigger Formula One presence in the United States, and Mopar fans can do some racing of their own with the upcoming Dodge Charger Daytona.
-- We've got weekend race results from Brazil.
-- Big Bernie says he wants more American F1 events.
-- And Dodge is putting the Daytona name on a new Charger.
Hi, I'm Andy and this is a Monday edition of Autoweek TV. We've wrapped up the leftovers so let's get back to cars -- that includes race results with spoilers, so if you've DVR'ed the action, push pause now. We'll give you a moment...
Sebastian Vettel took the F1 Championship on Sunday in Brazil. The 25-year-old German came in sixth in the race, but it was enough to lock up his third title. He's the youngest driver ever to accomplish the triple feat -- Michael Shumacher was 31 before he made it to three championships.
Red Bull also took the constructors championship, with wins from Webber and Vettel all season. Ferrari's Fernando Alonso and Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen came in second and third in the driver's championship standings.
For more on Vettel's win:
On the subject of Formula One, head honcho Bernie Ecclestone said he'd like to have three races in the United States and fewer in Europe.
New Jersey is on the calendar for next year, as is Russia. Deals for races in Thailand and Mexico are also in the works, which would eat away at European dates. Events in Belgium and Hungary, along with the two Spanish races, could be on the chopping block.
Full article with Ecclestone's comments:
Dodge is resurrecting the Daytona name on a special Charger sedan for the LA Auto Show.
The custom Charger will offer Mopar fans a spoiler, hood stripes, roof wrap and custom interior. "Daytona" is spelled out on the back fenders, and the body color palette is silver, blue, black or white.
Output for the standard Hemi V8 is unchanged at 370 hp, but buyers do get exclusivity: Only 2500 Charger Daytonas will be built for the United States. But be prepared to shell out about $3,000 for the option.
More on the Dodge Charger Daytona:

Inside the Designer’s Studio
A conversation with Jaguar Chief Designer Ian Callum
Jaguar USA AND Autoweek joined forces at the Hilton Head Island Motoring
Festival to bring exclusive, behind-the-scenes access any car fanatic would
put high on a list of must-do events.
Jaguar special guests and Autoweek Advisors were treated to the car-guy
insights of Jaguar Chief Designer Ian Callum, who admitted that, among
other things, he started drawing cars at just 3 years old. “I would draw
mechanical things around the house,” he said. “Appliances, cars, even
the Hoover [vacuum]."

2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: The Most Powerful Sedan In The World! - Ignition Ep. 122
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Tire Rack, Carlos Lago tests the
most powerful sedan money can buy: The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Much
like the Challenger Hellcat, this Charger packs an astonishing 707 hp from
its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. It is as absurd as it is functional, thanks
to its two additional doors and comfortable backseat. But to find out if
this sedan can do more than leave two long stripes of burnt tire for miles,
we’ll need to run it through our standard set of tests, including a Hot
Lap with Randy Pobst. Does the Charger Hellcat offer the same magic that we
loved in the Challenger? Find out on this episode of Ignition! @CarlosLago
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

My Car Story with Lou Costabile 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona with a 440 Magnum engine
On "My Car Story" we're in Bolingbrook IL at The Promenade Bolingbrook for
the Supercar Saturdays Event on 9-6-14.
We're looking at a 1969 Dodge Daytona with a 440 Magnum engine.
The car's Owner is Dave Kanofsky. He’s had the since 2002. He’s an
Engineer and loves the engineering and design of this car. I’d have to
agree, just a fantastic car!
134875 / 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/ofb34hg
Originally sold through Reedman Dodge in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, this
rare, red Daytona features an exceptionally straight body that was
perfected during a professional, rotisserie restoration. The car's rebirth
began when the skilled techs at our own RKM Performance Center completely
stripped its striking but faded profile all the way down to bare metal.
Once that metal was married to a fresh trunk pan, its facets were sanded
and lovingly massaged to a level that's much nicer than factory fodder.
With those facets adequately planed, and Chrysler's intimidating ambiance
fully reconstructed, a correct coat of code R6 two-stage was sealed under a
bright Daytona stripe. And today, this Dodge sits as an ultra-straight,
fully detailed pavement pounder that's some of the coolest, most
attention-grabbing iron Detroit has ever created.
Hoist the car's long hood and you'll find a correct, 440 cubic inch Magnum
V8 that's authenticated by a 2536430 casting number and January (1) 20th
(20), 1970 (70) casting date. At the top of that 375 horsepower monster, a
correct Carter carburetor rides within a small, Organisol-coated air
cleaner. At the base of that carburetor, a correct Chrysler intake hangs
between correct heads and traditional, stamped steel valve covers. At the
front of those valve covers, a reliable points distributor shoots spark
through Chrysler Electronic Suppression cables. And at the sides of that
distributor, fully restored Exhaust
manifolds funnel spent gases into great sounding, true-dual tail pipes.
Toss this B-Body in the air and you'll find a fully sorted undercarriage
that's been completely restored to a factory-accurate state. Heavy duty
primer protects weather-free floorpans that showcase a natural blend of
carefully faded overspray. Not surprisingly, the car's rugged A833 4-speed
needed very little to be rebuilt to solid, like-new condition. That
stalwart gearbox sends power to a correct Dana 60 Track Pack rear end. In
front of that drivetrain, gold torsion bars combine with optional power
steering to make quick work of big bumps and tight curves. Behind that
drivetrain, fresh shocks augment traditional leaf springs below a leak-free
fuel tank. Stops come courtesy of heavy duty power drum brakes that are
positioned at all four corners. Exhaust is handled by aluminized tubes, which
bend around an H-shaped crossover, traditional turbo mufflers and bright stainless tips. And all
that Mopar goodness rolls on familiar Magnum wheels, which twist 225/75R14
Coker Classic redlines around stainless trim rings and polished center
Inside this awesome Dodge, a correct Legendary interior is clean,
well-fitted and surprisingly stylish. The seats, which ride in a typical
bucket/bench configuration, display no significant signs of wear. In front
of those thrones, an expertly restored dash hangs rebuilt factory gauges
beside a thumb-adjusted Dodge Solid State radio. At the bottom of that
dash, like-new carpet anchors a familiar Hurst shifter inside a long,
wood-trimmed console. And in front of the driver, a correct steering wheel
spins a glossy black rim around a monochromatic, fratzog-branded column
With a smooth, era-correct powertrain, mostly-original sheetmetal and
enough visual flash to stand out in a mirror factory, this awesome Charger
is about as close to the ultimate muscle car as you can get! Call, click or

screams racing. Schedule a test drive today at http://www.gurneedodge.com/
