Dodge Daytona Overview
I'm not a NASCAR driver, but I play one in my car. The Dodge Daytona, whose speedway-inspired name implies speed, was introduced in 1984 as an affordable 3-door sporty hatchback aimed at younger drivers.
Over the years, it featured several 4-cylinder engine sizes, but it was only with the various turbo options that it truly lived up to its sports car aspirations, hitting horsepower ratings between 141 and 224 at different points in time. You could take this car as fast as you wanted and still be rewarded with a smooth ride, great cornering, and a comfortable interior. Different performance packages beefed up the handling and exterior image of the Daytona. Its 4-cylinder engine meant a more fuel-efficient car, even when driven flat out.
Though the back seat was built for contortionists and would be a challenge even for Harry Houdini to escape from, the driver was treated to plenty of leg room and convenient dash gauges and controls. And let's face it, a NASCAR driver doesn't take along passengers, so the rear seat was not a deal-breaker. The primary selling point for the Daytona was its speed and powerful engines, period.
