A Carbon Fiber-Bodied Super Muscle Car Is Up For Grabs

Speedkore Dodge Demon

Despite the fact that the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon broke into the nines and carried 840 horsepower under the hood (the most of any muscle car before or since), one thing is clear: it could still be faster if it went on a diet. Not just removing of the passenger seats, or other creature comforts that have little use in the pursuit of speed, no. But a full sheetmetal replacement made up of pure carbon fiber. There’s only one company that’s so far proven itself insane enough to make this happen: Wisconsin-based Speedkore Performance Group.

To really hit home the point, the first Speedkore Dodge Demon was revealed at the 2018 SEMA Show. Shortly after, it ran a record-setting 8.6-second quarter-mile at 159.54 mph. Granted, it had 1,400 horsepower to the crank and 980 horsepower to the wheels to supplement the 200-lb weight loss.

Afterwards, Speedkore built a total of four carbon fiber Dodge Challenger SRT Demons. This extremely rare example is one of them. Somehow, the original owner completely resisted the urge to drive it at all, as this one has just six measly miles on the odometer. It’s also the fourth and final Demon built by Speedkore.

This Speedkore Dodge Demon has been listed by Texas dealer BJ Motors on DuPont Registry for a significant $169,995. The listing claims that financing is available, and trade-ins are even considered. So if you’re willing to get creative, or if you simply have the cash, you better act fast. Faster than this thing can holeshot the drag strip.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
