Hellish SpeedKore Dodge Charger Unveiled at SEMA 2019

A Dodge Charger with a Widebody kit, all-wheel drive and a twin-turbo V8 engine in display at SEMA.


At the SEMA 2019 show, performance tuner shop SpeedKore has just released its latest project at this year’s SEMA show, and it’s quite a stunner. The company describes it as the “world’s first all-wheel-drive, twin-turbocharged, carbon-fibre Widebody Dodge Charger.”

The car started life as a Dodge Charger Pursuit, prepared for a life of idling on street corners and collecting donut frosting on its floor carpets—but was transformed into a hot-pursuit machine.

With the help of MagnaFlow, maker of catalytic converters and performance exhaust systems, the Dodge Charger by SpeedKore is equipped with a twin-turbo, 6.2-litre Dodge Demon V8. Thanks to a custom-valve exhaust, Thitek heads, a Boost Leash C02 progressive boost controller as well as calibration software provided by HP Tuners, the monstrous, E85-fed engine is said to develop 1,525 horsepower at the crank.

Sending that power to the ground is an all-wheel drivetrain and an automatic transmission built by Hellraiser Performance. The gearbox also features a Traction Products custom billet transfer case, and FTI torque converter, a carbon-fibre driveshaft provided by The Driveshaft Shop and a Gearhead Fabrications cooling system.

The SpeedKore Widebody Charger’s wide body was created using carbon fibre, after performing 3D scans of a stock Dodge Charger with the newly-introduced Widebody package.

No performance numbers have been announced so far, but SpeedKore said it will continue to “tune [the engine] for performance before and after the SEMA Show.” The SpeedKore Widebody Dodge Charger was built for the same customer who bought a twin-turbo Dodge Challenger Demon last year, who gave it to his older brother as a birthday gift.

SpeedKore’s past creations include the aforementioned 2018 Twin-Turbo Dodge Challenger Demon, in addition to the 1970 Dodge Charger “Evolution,” Chris Evans’ 1967 “Captain America” Chevrolet Camaro, Robert Downey Jr.’s 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302, the 1970 Dodge Charger “Tantrum,” and the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda “Menace.”
