Petrolheads love the Fast and Furious franchise for the crazy cars, not so much for the outlandish stunts or cheesy dialogue. There are few cars from the popular movie series as well-known as the Dodge Charger as driven by Dom Toretto, except for maybe the orange Supra that was seen in the original flick (which recently sold on auction). The wild-looking Speedkore Hellacious Dodge Charger seen here was built as a road-going version of the car used in the latest movie, titled F9.
The Speedkore Hellacious Dodge Charger is a custom build by Milwaukee-based Speedkore Performance Group. The company has a track record of producing high-performance muscle cars such as this Dodge Hellcat or this all carbon-fibre Charger Evolution.
Speedkore’s latest creation is almost all-new from the ground up. The company had to fabricate a new frame to cradle the engine, which now sits behind the cabin. Their choice of motor is a 6,2-litre Dodge Hellcat. The V8 mill is supercharged and pumps out a massive 527 kW and 881 N.m of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed Graziano transaxle borrowed from a Lamborghini Gallardo. The radiator for the cooling system is mounted in its traditional position behind the front grille, but the intercooler for the engine is mounted between the rear fenders.
The Speedkore Hellacious Dodge Charger features a wide-body design, exactly like the car in F9. The entire shell is made from lightweight carbon-fibre. Under the wider fenders are a set of 18-inch alloys that are shod with 275/35 front and 345/35 rear footwear. The center-lock wheels cover Brembo six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers. The rear has twin calipers, the second is actuated by a hydraulic handbrake to initiate drifts.
