The Dodge Daytona PPG Indy Pace Car is that one-of-one machine designed for just one purpose. Created as a Pace Car for the Indy World Series, it was made to showcase the company’s brand new G platform to people before it went into production. What better way to show this off than putting it in front of millions in a world racing series that the iconic Indianapolis 500 is a part of.
The pace car was created in association with PPG Industries, the official sponsors of the Indy Series. It was based on the standard front-wheel drive, two-door Dodge Daytona. Although three examples of it were built, this one, being the concept vehicle, is totally unique. Since the famous G platform of the Daytona wasn’t placed in production yet, the PPG Indy Pace Car had to be moulded and crafted from the older K platform.
