Speedkore showed off its carbon-fiber-bodied Dodge Charger at the Magnaflow booth during the 2019 SEMA Show earlier this month, and it just may be the most radical four-door muscle car the world has ever seen. And while the carbon fiber bodywork definitely implies incredible levels of work and hours to complete this machine, the exterior tells only half the story.
Under the hood is a highly, highly modified version of the 6.2L Dodge Demon V8 engine that switches out its massive 2.7L supercharger for a pair of Precision turbos installed by Gearhead Fabrications. The modifications don’t stop there however, as Speedkore has installed a custom upper intake plenum, custom Thitek heads, a Fore Innovations triple-pump fuel system featuring 1,700-cc Injector Dynamics injectors, a Boost Leash C02 progressive boost controller and a custom HP Tuners engine software calibration. On 26 pounds of boost, the built-out Demon motor produces 1,525 hp at the crankshaft.
Putting this immense power down is a custom all-wheel drive system, complete with a billet transfer case from Traction Products, a Hellraiser Performance transmission featuring an FTI torque converter, and a carbon fiber driveshaft unit. Power is put to the ground via a set of Bogart Competition Series wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson ET tires.
However, what’s the point of building such a radical, all-wheel-drive Dodge Charger if nobody can know the 0-60 and quarter mile times? It seems that our questions will be answered “soon,” according to a social media post by Wisconsin’s SpeedKore.
If you’re going to find these paramount performance times, the person to do it is NHRA racing driver Leah Pritchett. SpeedKore mentioned via Facebook that Pritchett drove the car two weeks before the official unveil of this mighty Mopar. As a racer, she most recently claimed the NHRA Factory Stock Showdown championship in 2018, and currently races TopFuel for Don Schumacher Racing. So when it comes to testing a 1,525 horsepower four-door sedan in the quarter mile, she’s more than qualified.
