We have made a big fuss about all of the Chevrolet Camaro body kits on the market that transform it into the retro looking Pontiac Firebird that they should have, but there are also a few Mopar fans who are looking for a bit of 21st century American muscle car nostalgia. That is where the HPP Daytona comes into play, starting off as an ordinary Dodge Challenger, the Chrysler transforms into a brand new big winged Dodge Daytona ready to tackle the high banking of Talladega and its sister super speedway with a fuel injected 5.7 Liter Hemi V8 being fed compressed air from a Vortech Supercharger in order to make a total of 600 HP.

HPP Daytona brings NASCAR's Superbird back to life

As good as all the Firebird transformations look, there is something about this Daytona conversion that strikes a special cord inside us. Perhaps it was all of the ridiculous rule bending that the big three were doing back in the 1960s and how Chrysler went that extra step to break the 200 MPH barrier with a special edition Dodge Charger that was decked out with a nose cone complete with streamlined hidden headlights, more vents than you can shake a stick at to get all that hot air out from under the hood and the wildest wing that NASCAR’s rule books have ever allowed. And HPP has included all of those things into their modern day Daytona.

The one to acknowledge first is the tuners of this car coz’ the planning of this concept needs a lot of research to look like the Superbird. Of course a good choice to use the Challenger as the base of
this customization process and work on the rear wings which I think it’s a carbon fibre wing.

Well the car modification works a lot in terms of reviving the Superbird for the release of HPP Daytona. Very much like the Superbird if you will look on the images and compare them. Speed maybe the difference on this one because this Daytona is fully setup and has been modified.

For me, it is the color that distinguished this car. If we are to compare other designs of Daytona cars to this SuperBird, the latter is probably the most good looking. But it’s not all that. We can only tell how good a car is on the race track.
