The entire concept of a full carbon fiber muscle car is enticing. The lightweight material is a beautiful combination with absurd power levels. Also, the iconic carbon weave of the material is fantastic to look at, especially if there’s a light layer of paint covering it; ensure that it’s only visible when the light hits it at just the right angle. SpeedKore is a company that specializes in converting Dodge muscle cars, specifically the classic Charger, but did you know that they built five carbon fiber Challenger Demons?
SpeedKore Carbon-Fiber 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon: Details
This prime example of a muscle car is available on Hemmings and is one of five models with this stunning carbon fiber body available worldwide. Under the hood is a modified version of the Demon’s supercharged V8, which produced an incredible 840 horsepower from the factory, but is now good for a Demon 170-rivaling 1028 hp and 1049 lb-ft of torque. Imagine what this extra power means with a body that weighs far less than the standard Demon on the drag strip. The engine has undergone some serious upgrades, including strengthened connecting rods, a modified valvetrain, a dual-stage fuel pump, and a 2.7-liter IHI supercharger that makes 14.5 psi of boost. The car has around 1,000 miles on the odometer, which is still brand new.
As for the actual numbers in weight reduction, SpeedKore’s Dodge Challenger carbon-fiber body sheds 200 pounds compared to the factory steel. It might not seem like a drastic change, but it’ll still significantly impact when accelerating. The carbon fiber hood, which features hold-down pins, uses a factory-style Air-Grabber scoop. The car also has an Air-Catcher driver-side headlamp to help keep the engine at optimal performance.
This SpeedKore carbon-fiber 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is available for immediate delivery. Unsurprisingly, it’ll cost a pretty penny, listed at $206,995. However, considering this is a highly unique and powerful piece of art and the Challenger is now discontinued, it feels worth the price.
