Twin turbos + all-wheel drive + widebody = one spectacular muscle sedan.
In the market for a muscle sedan? The Dodge Charger is one of the last such machines on the market, and it offers no shortage of choices: rear- or all-wheel drive, V6 or V8, widebody or standard. Unfortunately, you can't get all those options together in one package, but SpeedKore is out to rectify that.
At the 2019 SEMA show next month, the Wisconsin-based tuner will bring the finished version of the vehicle rendered here. And while it's not saying exactly what the custom performance sedan will entail exactly, what it is saying speaks volumes.
For starters, it's a widebody Charger, with the increased stance typically offered only with the Scat Pack (from $45,995) or on the SRT Hellcat ($69,645). It's also all-wheel drive, which you can't get from the factory with the wider bodywork or a V8 – only on the six-cylinder SXT and GT models. Last but not least, it's slated to pack a twin-turbo engine, which is something that Fiat Chrysler doesn't offer at all (not that we're complaining about the supercharged Hellcat, mind you). All of that adds up to one very tempting package, and one that we'd wager SpeedKore will pull off splendidly.
This is, after all, the same tuner that made the twin-turbo Challenger Demon, augmenting the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with a pair of turbochargers to the tune of 1,400 horsepower. It also infamously crafted Kevin Hart's controversial 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, among countless other high-powered classic muscle cars, and makes carbon-fiber bodywork to European supercar standards.
If the aforementioned Demon is any indication, this tuned muscle sedan could pack upwards of a thousand horsepower, and have the traction and stance to put it all down to the tarmac. But we may have to wait until the doors open at SEMA next month to see how it's shaped up.
