“FAST & FURIOUS” Franchise – 1969 Dodge Charger DAYTONA!

The film version of the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, just like all the other cars in the franchise, was `prepared` by Dennis McCarthy’s shop, and just like many of them, it is powered by GM’s 6.2 liter LS3 V8 engine that generates around 430 HP. When it comes to the suspension, instead of the stock torsion bars, at the front they are using Reilly Motorsports’ “AlterKtion” coil-over system, and the Reilly’s “triangulated four-bar” system is responsible for the tail. The choice for brakes at all four corners is to use Brembo calipers, and for the rear wheels, there is a second set of calipers that is hooked up to an individual braking circuit, so that the stuntmen could have better sideways control.

Check out the following two videos – in first one you will learn about the technical specs, especially about the brake system of this great car, and in the second, you can see it in its original movie form, being exposed at 2013 SEMA.
