Speedkore Flexes A Carbon, AWD, Twin-Turbo Charger At SEMA 2019

If there’s one thing we like, it’s the sound of a monster V8. The guys at Magnaflow do too, so it comes as no surprise they had to have something making noise at their 2019 SEMA booth.

You can see why we were stopped in our tracks…

They partnered up with the team over at Speedkore. You know those guys, they’re the ones that built Evolution, and Tantrum – the all-carbon, Demon-powered ’70 Charger, and the 1650HP, twin-turbo ’70 Charger. Well, they sought to shock and awe just as much as they did with those two Mopar powerhouses.

The different stance and those Mickey Thompson meats in front and rear stopped us in our tracks.

They put something badass together – a 2019 Dodge Charger. It wasn’t just any ol’ run-of-the-mill Charger, though. As you can see from the photos below, it wears Speedkore’s signature carbon. We are always impressed when we see the way the carbon panels mesh so well together on all of Speedcore’s builds. The weave pattern matches almost seamlessly from panel to panel, it’s hard to tell where one starts and the other begins. Suffice to say, we were droolin’.

Imagine this thing doing AWD burnouts…

So, of course, we just had to stop by and find out just what went into the build.

We caught up with Richard Waitas of Magnaflow, and he gave us the lowdown on their monstrous booth vehicle. We were impressed with the crowd surrounding the booth, and Richard stated, “Yeah, that’s what we’re all about.” He then expounded on the Charger.

The Charger actually started out life as a 2019 Dodge Charger Pursuit. That’s right, it used to be a cop car. Dodge actually sent over a pre-production version of the new Hellcat Widebody for the engineers at Speedkore to scan and build the necessary parts out of carbon fiber and graft onto the Charger Pursuit.

Twin whirly boys poking out from behind the carbon front bumper are sinister!

It now wears a carbon fiber front bumper, fender flare set, factory rocker set, hood, rear spoiler, rear bumper, and rear diffuser.

Under the hood is a 6.2 Liter Hemi Demon V8. The powerplant is twin-turbocharged just like the record-setting Challenger Hellcat piloted by Leah Pritchett. Those whirly-boys are Precision 6466 ball-bearing units, and they’re good for 1,525 ALL-WHEEL-DRIVE horsepower!

Thitek heads, 1700cc injectors, Boost Leash Progressive Boost Controller, Speedkore Designed upper plenum, and, of course, twin Precision 6466 Ball-Bearing Billet Turbos unleash 1,525hp under the hood of this Charger Pursuit.

Of course, the exhaust had to be trick – it was at the Magnaflow booth, after all. So, Magnaflow hooked it up with two exhausts. A valve-actuated setup for when they want to let the thing get out and stretch its legs on the track, and a conventional dual-rear-exhaust for street driving.

Putting 1500hp to the ground is no joke, so the Charger Pursuit sets atop Bogart Industries wheels that are wrapped in Mickey Thompson ET Streets.

Bogart wheels set off the build by stuffing monster Mickey Thompson ET Streets under all four corners.
