With the SEMA Show getting under way, Dodge is showing off some of its current and future wares. In that future department is the Charger Daytona SRT Banshee, which debuted during Dodge Speed Week a few months ago.
What’s different about this car at SEMA is that it is updated. It’s a tri-coat Stryker Red in color and features 18-inch Direct Connection lightweight carbon fiber concept wheels with 305 mm drag radials.
This car is to show off, and celebrate, the Direct Connection Stage 2 upgrades that’ll be available when the production car eventually ships. We don’t know much about how much horsepower the SRT car will make, but it is likely going to be “an lot.”
Visitors to SEMA will also be able to potentially participate in consumer clinics to help fine tune the sound that comes from the Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust. You see, according to Dodge brand CEO Tim Kuniskis, the sound you heard at the main reveal might not actually be the final production sound.
“The SEMA Show is one of the great gatherings of the performance culture, and Dodge isn’t going to shy away as we develop the next generation of muscle car — one that just happens to be fully electric,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer — Stellantis. “Technology moves forward and the customizers and tuners move right along with it. We’re demonstrating how old-school hot-rodding will thrive in an electrified muscle-car future.”
The Stryker Red paint comes straight from the now discontinued Viper. You won’t miss it on the show floor at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Also during the show, there will be a digital wall showcasing conceptualized exterior colors for the Charger Daytona. While the car itself is still technically a concept, this should give folks an idea what the final car will look like in the color they prefer.
The 2022 SEMA Show runs through Nov. 4.
