The 1969 Dodge Charger R/T (Road and Track) was a sports model of the second generation B-body Dodge Charger. It came standard with a 440cu (7.2L) V8 although there was also an option for a 426cu (7.0L) V8.
Other standard features of the B-body Charger were two exhaust pipes, sport brakes and suspension as well as the bumblebee stripe on the rear fenders.
The strong point of the Dodge Charger R/T is its acceleration, which is superior to other Tier 2 cars. The handling is somewhat controllable but also heavily influenced by fishtailling in corners. It can be competitive in every Tier 2 race. Thanks to its high kerb weight, the Charger is also effective in pursuits.
It boasts powerful acceleration and excels at performing burnouts due to being capable of achieving maximum grip even when being unmodified. Because of a high kerb weight, it feels sluggish to drive around corners. The Charger R/T is best utilised in Drag mode although when fully upgraded, it becomes prone to performing wheelies, if given too much grip during a burnout.
The Charger R/T appears in the Team Racing Pack DLC for Need for Speed: Shift. It is a Tier 2 vehicle with a car rating of 5.10.
The Charger R/T appears in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Retro Road vehicle with a $41,000 price tag. It has a C 520 performance rating and a 3.15 handling rating. Its top speed and braking time from 60-0 mph are identical to the Challenger R/T's.
Quick acceleration and a decent top speed allow the Charger R/T to have good straight-line performance. However, it can easily spin out in corners as a consequence of its high weight.
