EL carro, llamado SpeedKore Demon, viste un kit de carrocería de cuerpo ancho de fibra de carbono.

El SEMA Show 2019 sirvió como el escenario para la presentación de este Dodge Charger doble turbo con tracción total. SpeedKore, su creador, lo dejó ver parcialmente el mes pasado, diciendo que se trataba del primer Charger en el mundo "con tracción total, doble turbo y carrocería ancha de fibra de carbono”. MagnaFlow y HP Tuners también colaboraron en el proyecto.

El carro donante fue un Dodge Charger Pursuit 2019, similar a los que usan los patrulleros de caminos en muchos estados, que SpeedKore comenzó reformando con un kit de carrocería ancha de fibra de carbono. El carro base recibido directamente de Dodge, fue escaneado en 3D para construir los modelos del kit los moldes. El resultado es un juego de piensas de ensanche de la carrocería compuesto de un parachoques frontal, faldones, paneles laterales inferiores, capó, alerón y parachoques traseros, y difusor trasero.

Pero la estética es totalmente secundaria en este modelo especial, lo verdaderamente importante está debajo del capó. Allí encontramos un V8 doble turbo de 6.2 litros, similar al del SpeedKore Demon, modificado profundamente. El motor cuenta ahora con dos turbo-cargadores de cilindro forjado y rolinera Precision 6466, en lugar del supercargador original. Un sistema de combustible con tres bombas e inyectores de Injector Dynamics de 1700cc entrega E85 al motor.

SpeedKore dice que el motor genera una potencia de 1,525 caballos de fuerza en la manivela, con un empuje conservador de 26 libras de empuje de los turbocargadores. SpeedKore seguirá trabajando el motor después del SEMA, por lo que estas especificaciones podrían cambiar. La potencia llega a las cuatro ruedas a través de una transmisión construida por Hellraiser Performance, con una caja de transferencia forjada creada por Traction Products, convertidor de torque de FTI, y eje de accionamiento de fibra de carbono hecho por The Driveshaft Shop.

El carro mostrado en Las Vegas es una unidad única encargada por un cliente de SpeedKore, quien lo ordenó para el cumpleaños 65 de su hermano. Esperamos verlo en acción, sobre todo en una carrera de drag con el SpeedKore Demon, presuntamente el Demon más rápido del mundo.

MagnaFlow Unveils World’s First All-Wheel-Drive, Twin-Turbocharged, Carbon-Fiber Widebody Dodge Charger by SpeedKore at the 2019 SEMA Show

The MagnaFlow-equipped carbon-fiber widebody Charger utilizes SpeedKore’s world record-setting turbocharged Demon platform in combination with an all-wheel-drive drivetrain. 

OCEANSIDE, Calif. (November 2019) — MagnaFlow, the industry leader in catalytic converters and performance exhaust systems, in collaboration with SpeedKore Performance Group, unveiled the first carbon-fiber widebody, all-wheel-drive Dodge Charger, powered by a twin-turbo 6.2-liter Dodge Demon V-8, at the largest annual automotive specialty products trade show, The SEMA Show, in Las Vegas.

The starting platform for the drag-focused Charger was a 2019 Dodge Charger Pursuit. To create the carbon-fiber widebody components, SpeedKore received a widebody Charger from Dodge to perform a 3D scan and create the necessary molds. The vehicle was then equipped with a pre-preg carbon-fiber front bumper, fender flare set, factory rocker set, hood, rear spoiler, rear bumper and rear diffuser.

The Charger features a custom-valve exhaust system that exits out of the front bumper for track use and can be easily switched to flow through a MagnaFlow Competition Series exhaust for street driving. The Competition Series exhaust features 3” stainless steel throughout and exits through dual split rear exiting polished tips, providing an aggressive exterior sound while maintaining a moderate interior sound. HP Tuners provided the calibration software for the vehicle, which made 1,525 horsepower to the crank on a conservative 26 pounds of boost during the initial dyno-tuning session. SpeedKore will continue to tune for performance before and after the SEMA Show.

Under the hood is the same turbocharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine found in the record-setting SpeedKore Demon, which has been modified by Gearhead Fabrications to replace the factory supercharger with two Precision 6466 ball-bearing billet turbochargers and a custom upper plenum designed and engineered by SpeedKore. To handle the increased boost levels, the engine has been outfitted with custom Thitek heads and a Boost Leash C02 progressive boost controller. Delivering E85 to the engine is a Fore Innovations triple-pump fuel system through Injector Dynamics 1700cc injectors.

Unlike the Demon, the Charger features all-wheel drive and delivers power to the ground through a Hellraiser Performance-built transmission with a custom billet transfer case created by Traction Products, an FTI torque converter and carbon-fiber driveshaft from The Driveshaft Shop, all being cooled by a Gearhead Fabrications transmission cooler. The final component putting power to the ground is a set of Bogart Competition Series wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson ET Street tires on all four corners.

The one-off Dodge Charger was built for a returning SpeedKore customer, Alex Palermo, who previously commissioned the Wisconsin-based performance shop to build the twin-turbo Dodge Demon that holds the Demon quarter-mile record. After seeing the twin-turbo Demon, his older brother, whom Palermo credits for his love of all things Mopar, said he liked the car but was more of a four-door guy. Palermo took those words to heart and enlisted SpeedKore to build a four-door version of his Demon as a surprise for his brother's 65th birthday.
