As of last Friday, the spectacular series of events that are a part of Monterey Car Week have officially concluded. It was a classic car enthusiast’s heaven, with almost never-ending amounts of vehicles to scope out throughout a dozen or so organized cruises, shows, meets, auctions, and more.
It usually draws in biiiig money, which means high dollar builds and expensive cars at the auctions. While we can appreciate these insanely pristine restorations, the more wild builds are what truly catch our eyes. This 1970 Dodge Charger did exactly that.
It may be seemingly understated by today’s standards, but the devil is in the details, as they say. Well, Demon in this case. Because, not only does it feature a full carbon fiber body, but it also sports the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 taken right from the Dodge Demon.
It’s been dubbed Evolution by its creators at Speedkore, who fabricated its fully custom steel and aluminum chassis. All of Evolution’s bodywork is made from carbon fiber and aluminum, which brings its total weight down to about 3200 pounds. The Demon powerplant was boosted up to 966-horsepower thanks to a smaller blower drive pulley, upgraded injectors, a dry-sump system, and custom intake and exhaust manifolds – all delivered to the rear wheels through a Tremec T-56 six-speed manual trans.
To handle the extra stopping power it needed, Speedkore went with six- and four-piston Brembos, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires (wrapping HRE Wheels), and Penske coilovers.
Being the showpiece that it is, Evolution was spotlighted at Monterey’s McCall’s Motorworks Revival event. There’s no doubt it stole the show and we can’t wait to check this thing out in person at the SEMA Show in a few months.
