As we all know it, in the Fast & Furious franchise, Dom Toretto’s most dramatic and turbulent relationship was with that awesome black blown 1970 Dodge Charger. But in the sixth movie, instead of it, he is driving the legendary 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. And it seems only logical, as he evolves from a street racing Los Angeles rebel into a leader of a diverse family of international heist-masters. The choice of a little bit slicker and more refined muscle car like the iconic ’69 Charger Daytona is pretty much suitable, wouldn’t you agree?
1969 Dodge Charger Daytona became as an aerodynamically improved version of the Charger, built to race and compete on super-speedways as Talladega and, of course, Daytona. It came to life thanks to the eternal rivalry between Dodge and Ford, as an answer to the Ford’s long-nose Torino Talladega, and right away it was a huge success on the track. It is the very first car that ran a lap over 200 mph so it should not be a surprise that there were many legendary stories about it, before the Fast & Furious film ever came out.
