@ Bijan: Even with close ratio, it's still reach 150 + mph. Well in wikipedia, Hemi in 69-70 got the biggest power. It recorded 437.5 Hp with 470 ft-lbs. Dodge tested secretly in Chrysler track and hit almost 180 mph with long ratio 4 speed 3.23 ratio like yo say it before. But a lot of people feel this data is just hoax.

@ Super8 , yes , its correct , these records and these Top speeds speak about Race Versions of Daytona's or Torino's . But this is a street car with 425 bhp and 3.55 rear ratio and 13.5 @ 105 and 157 mph maximum Top speed . maybe 165 with 3.23 .

It's not a sport car , help , God .
The 69 Sport cars are : Ferrari 365 GTB/4 , Porsche 911, E-type , Corvette , Alfa romeo GTV , Maserati ghibli and ...............
The charger Daytona with optional 426 Hemi was an Important " Muscle Car " not " Sports Car " . 200 mph is un true , the record's is fake .....

I was under the impression that the race version of the daytona was the only one that could reach 200mph.

Edit: wait... I'm confused about the street/race situation, better do research I think I forgot haha.

I think Charger had more chance beating Corvette in De La Sarthe circuit :D
426 Hemi 437.5 hp Vs 454 LS7 465 hp.
(those figure are net hp from trusted source)
