HPP Daytona: Challenger Gets Even More Radically RetroS

In case you hadn't noticed, the Dodge Challenger is already pretty retro, but the fellows at Heide Performance Products have turned the retro up to 11 with the HPP Daytona, a Dodge Charger Daytona re-imagined on a Challenger chassis.

The HPP Daytona, first unveiled at SEMA earlier this month, is little more than a dolled-up Challenger R/T with the 5.7-liter HEMI. Nothing's been tweaked beneath the hood, but somehow they've managed to add styling cues of the classic Charger atop the new Challenger and make the whole thing work pretty well. The new nose cone fits perfectly with the new Challenger's lines and while we'd quickly toss the faux side details, we're liking pretty much everything about this monster-winged creation. Of course, we never really outgrew our love of Hot Wheels cars. Now if only Chrysler could make an interior worth working with. [Source: HPP]
