Anything that SpeedKore builds or modifies usually falls at the intersection of crazy carbon fiber exterior and absurd horsepower figures. We’ve covered several of SpeedKore’s projects like the fully carbon-fibered Dodge Demon, the custom 1970’s Dodge Charger Hellraiser built for Kevin Hart, and the carbon body kit they created for the C8 Corvette. They seem to always be upping the game, and this time is no different. SpeedKore has created a street-legal replica of the 1968 Dodge Charger that Dom Toretto drives in F9. They’re calling it Hellacious.
The Hellacious Build Is Delicious
You can probably guess that SpeedKore used the 6.2L supercharged Hellcat V8 as Hellacious’ engine of choice. The trusty 707 horsepower motor is basically the aftermarket industry standard for custom builds these days. You won’t find the motor under the hood however; SpeedKore decided that Hellacious would be their first mid-engined build, and the decision fits the rest of the car. Through the Lamborghini Gallardo-sourced 6-speed gated manual, power is sent to the center-lock wheels wrapped in 275/35 R18 front and 345/35 R18 rear tires. If you look closely, the center wheel locks are custom-made to resemble the tri-spoke SpeedKore logo.
It Only Gets Better
The F9 widebody Dodge Charger also sports massive red Brembo brakes and an obligatory pull-back style Sikky hydraulic hand-brake. This is a Fast and Furious replica car after all. The interior is mostly subtle. The gauges are all retro-styled and the black leather-wrapped seats match the steering wheel. The cabin and engine bay are separated by a glass panel, giving the occupants full visibility of the rear-mounted Hellcat V8. We’re certain the driving experience behind the wheel must be beyond ludicrous. Oh, and don’t forget the shiny black NOS canister that sits neatly in between the driver and passenger. Go figure that SpeedKore’s owner and president Jim Kacmarcik said that the Hellacious 1968 Dodge Charger is one of their most extreme builds yet.
