The Demon’s V8 HEMI has also been cranked up to 1,200 hp.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is sadly no longer in production, but that hasn’t stopped aftermarket tuners from modifying the insanely powerful muscle car. Speedkore is showcasing an extensively modified Dodge Demon at the 2018 SEMA show, and at first glance it looks identical to the regular car. However, this custom Demon has been given an extensive carbon fiber makeover. Everything from the bumpers and the hood, to the roof and quarter panels are constructed out of the lightweight material.
Elsewhere, the exterior features a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber mirror caps, carbon fiber fender flares, and carbon fiber door panels. Speedkore hasn’t said how much weight has been shed, but it should be a lot lighter than the standard Dodge Demon, which tips the scales at 4,280 lbs.
Inside, the Demon features SpeedKore carbon fiber door panels and a SpeedKore 14-point roll cage. The car also rides on new 20-inch HRE wheels fitted with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.
Under the hood, the Demon’s 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine has been fitted with a cold-air intake, a new throttle body and a larger supercharger, as well as a Triple Four fuel system, new fuel injectors and a DiabloSport tune. With these modifications, the engine now cranks out 980 hp on the dyno – that’s around 1,200 hp at the crank according to Speedkore. Since this custom Dodge Demon was designed to be used for track days, the company is already planning future upgrades including more “suitable suspension and brake packages”.
