Here's Why The Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye Jailbreak Is A Better Muscle Car Than The Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing

Here’s Why The Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye Jailbreak Is A Better Muscle Car Than The Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing

While the CT5-V Blackwing is a sophisticated luxury sedan that wants to run with the German premium trio, the Charger Jailbreak is an old-school middle finger to European luxury

When it comes to high-performance, four-door sedans, it’s usually the Germans everyone is looking to. However, there are two American propositions that manage to combine four-door practicality, with big supercharged V-8s – the Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye Jailbreak and the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing. Both celebrate the end of a glorious era of thirsty, supercharged V-8s, but while the Cadillac wants to be a well-dressed gentleman with a hidden dark side, the Dodge wants to be an unapologetic, tank top-wearing, beer-drinking maniac, full-time.

This 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona Is Beyond Special

This 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona Is Beyond Special

It’s said to be just one of 22 thanks to its extensive list of options

The Dodge Charger Daytona was basically a homologation special that Dodge was forced to build so that it could compete in NASCAR. Despite its slightly off appearance, that massive rear wing and the nosecone were so effective that it was quickly banned from racing, but not before it racked up a handful of wins, of course. The car you see here is just one of 70 examples that were built in 1969 with the 426 Hemi V-8, but that’s not where this car’s claim to rarity ends.
