SEMA 2017 | SpeedKore makes a Demon lighten up

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon managed to impress immediately, but SpeedKore Performance Group wanted to take things even further.

Rare is the person who, when first presented with Dodge’s street-legal dragster SRT Demon, thought “how do we make it even faster” and get to work doing something about it. However, that’s exactly what Wisconsin-based SpeedKore did.


Exactly how do you improve on a 840hp menace, already capable of running 0-60mph in 2.3 seconds and pulling a wheelie from a standing start? With the extensive use of carbon fibre, replacing heavy regular body panels with ones formed from the lightweight wonder material.

The result is not only a substantial chunk of weight removed from the already stripped-out SRT Demon, but also a paint finish which looks rather cool. Naked carbon panels will undoubtedly always tick our box, but the special PPG “tear-off” paint makes the lightweight Demon appear really evil.

SpeedKore is a company very much in the ascendancy at present, with the carbon fibre-bodied Ford Mustang GT350R receiving great acclaim from Jay Leno. A SpeedKore ’70 Ford Mustang BOSS 302 – commissioned by Robert Downey Jr. no less – picked up a ‘Best of Show’ award at SEMA, whilst the company also had rock legend Sammy Hagar on hand to unveil the carbon fibre Demon. That’s a pretty big deal.SEMA 2017 SpeedKore Dodge Demon

UPDATED: With the madness of SEMA now finished, SpeedKore have provided us with some amazing photos from the launch of the lightweight Demon. We’ve also got a wealth of bonus SpeedKore goodness to share in the very near future. After all, there’s no such thing as too much carbon fibre.
