Following its debut in SEMA last year, HPP has released new details and photos (low res) about their Daytona Concept conversion package for the Dodge Challenger.
Designed to mimic the Plymouth Superbird, the $16,395 base package features a revised front fascia, pop-up headlights, an aluminum hood (with a T/A-style scoop), a massive rear wing, new taillights, and 20-inch wheels. Inside, the cabin receives a modified instrument cluster, a unique shifter, and HHP floor mats.
Options include a ventilated hood ($2391.50 - $2,835.00), ground effects ($2490.63 - $3584.38), painted interior trim ($450.00), and custom seats ($2700.00).
In terms of performance, the company offers three different superchargers ($7,149.95 - $7,388.95 for the 6.1-liter HEMI V8), three KW coilover suspensions ($2,025.00 - $3,595.00), and a Magnaflow exhaust ($1,460.00).
When every item on the menu is selected, the entire package adds up to $41,461 not including the price of the car, of course.
HPP's first full vehicle concept is the Dodge Daytona, which is based on the Dodge Challenger.
Early in 2009, during a meeting with Mopar Officials, there was discussion of the old glory and historically significant Chrysler Vehicles of the past. After a lot of discussion the question was asked - "Hey, can you take a Charger / Challenger and make a Superbird out of it, updated of course." Wild idea we all thought, but HPP was up to the challenge!
After a considerable amount of brain bending, measuring, and a few cuss words for effect, the HPP team found a possible way to make it work. Immediately design drawings were developed and after a bit of design give and take, the first sketches were made that looked decent enough to ponder. HPP took a look at the final sketches to be presented to Mopar and we proceeded with a basic plan and quotation to build one car for the 2009 SEMA show.
HPP's interpretation of the "new" Dodge Daytona was displayed at the 2009 SEMA show. This vehicle is the culmination of over 50 product changes, designed and produced by HPP and its partner companies. We will begin to offer some of these products in the Aftermarket in the first quarter of 2010, and we will be offering full vehicle conversions to individual customers, dealers, and corporations once we have completed our tooling and development testing.
