Speedkore’s Carbon Fiber Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Packs 1200 HP

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon went out of production earlier this year, but the model is making a triumphant return to SEMA thanks to Speedkore.

While the car looks pretty standard at first glance, this particular Demon has been equipped with carbon fiber bodywork. As a result, the bumpers, hood, roof and quarter panels are all constructed out of the lightweight material. Speedkore didn’t even stop at the main components as the company also created a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber mirror caps and carbon fiber fender flares – just to name a few things.

There’s no word on how much lighter the car is, but the extensive use of carbon fiber undoubtedly results in a significant weight savings. That’s certainly a good thing as the standard Challenger SRT Demon tips the scales at 4,280 lbs (1,941 kg) which is slightly more than a Honda Ridgeline.

Besides being lighter than the standard model, the Speedkore Demon is more powerful. Under the hood, the car’s 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine has been equipped with a cold-air intake, a new throttle body and a larger supercharger. Other upgrades include a Triple Four fuel system, new fuel injectors and a DiabloSport tune.

Thanks to all these modifications, the engine now produces 980 hp (730 kW / 993 PS) on the dyno. The company went on to say this is roughly 1,200 hp (895 kW / 1,216 PS) at the crank.

Rounding out the changes are carbon fiber door panels and a 14-point roll cage. The model has rides on new 20-inch HRE wheels which are outfitted with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.

Since the car was designed to go road racing, the company is already planning future modifications. These include fitting a “more suitable suspension” and upgrading the brakes.

    That front panel misalignment is really bothering me. But everything else is on point.

      It’s a Dodge made for drag racing, not a Rolls Royce; however, that said, I do agree with you. When you spend that kind of money, you should expect and receive better panel fitment than that.

    “Since the car was designed to go road racing…”

    The lighter carbon fiber bodywork should definitely help with that. And not that more power than a Bugatti Veyron isn’t awesome, but I would volunteer that the stock 808 (840 with race gas and matching ECU) would be faster on just about any track that isn’t a straight line or at ridiculous altitudes. Even that might be overkill. Your standard Hellcat is probably more power than you can use anyway. You might be faster on the straights if you can put the power down, but the rest of the track is just an exercise in avoiding spinning out.
