SpeedKore Performance is coming to this year’s SEMA show with a very special hardcore Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody.
Last year, SpeedKore made the world’s most badass Dodge Demon by giving it 1,400 horsepower and a carbon-fiber body. That body was hundreds of pounds lighter while the 1,400 horses were accomplished by tossing out the old supercharger in favor of a pair of twin-turbos.
If getting rid of the supercharger seems sacrilegious to you, then SpeedKore had you covered with a custom 1970 Dodge Challenger that tossed its original engine for a tuned version of the Demon’s 6.2-L HEMI V8. The supercharger is retained but massaged to produce 966 hp instead of the usual 840 hp.
This year, the big news at Dodge is the new Charger Hellcat Widebody, so SpeedKore is taking that car and making it about as ridiculous as the carbon fiber Demon.
We don’t have all the details, but we know that the Charger Widebody will sport twin turbos and have all-wheel drive courtesy of a Facebook post. That’s all we have officially, but Mopar Insiders managed to tease out a few more details.
With twin-turbos, it seems almost unimaginable that the car would have less than 1,000 hp, which Mopar Insiders confirms. They also confirm that the car will get the same twin-turbo Demon engine as last year’s SEMA offering, so we can likely expect around 1,400 horsepower from this Charger Widebody.
In addition, "Magnaflow created a custom-valved exhaust system for the car, that exits out behind the front bumper for track use and then can easily be switched to flow through a MagnaFlow Competition Series exhaust when driving on the street."
We’ll find out more as we approach SEMA, which begins November 5th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Expect to see SpeedKore’s latest creation at the Magnaflow booth to be unveiled on opening day.
