Based in Wisconsin, the SpeedKore Performance Group gained worldwide fame in a few short years thanks to exceptionally wild builds. Carbon-fiber parts are the company’s specialty, and the Mercury Racing-engined 1970 Dodge Charger from the 2015 SEMA Show really stands out in the crowd.
For this year’s edition, SpeedKore prepares to reveal a 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody with two notable changes from the bog-standard model. First and foremost, the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 features two thumpin’ great turbochargers instead of a twin-screw blower. And secondly, switching from rear- to all-wheel drive should provide quicker launches.

To be unveiled at the MagnaFlow booth next month, the SpeedKore Charger is the subject of a teaser rendering from Sean Smith Designs. As you can tell with a simple pinch and zoom, the front bumpers appear to be made from carbon fiber. Drilled brake rotors, silver calipers, and five-spoke wheels finished in the same shade of black as the door mirrors are also featured.

A twin-turbo Hellcat engine can easily be pushed to 1,000 horsepower, and not that long ago, SpeedKore leveled up the Demon to 1,202 horsepower at the wheels. The tuner further mentions a Demon-based engine as the basis of the build, which means that the standard model doesn’t stand a chance.

Dodge claims the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody shoots to 60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds with a perfect launch, topping at 196 miles per hour (315 km/h). The SpeedKore Charger will certainly impress on the blacktop if equipped with a set of drag radials, more so if the Transbrake is included.

It remains to be seen if SPG can integrate the Transbrake and Torque Reserve into their newest bad boy, two go-faster features from the Demon. The first works by locking three clutches in the first gear and one in the second to prevent the reserved torque from getting to the wheels. Instead of first and reverse as you may find in a hot rod, Dodge chose first and second gears for the car to move forward in the event the transmission fails at launch.
