SpeedKore Performance Group out of Grafton, Wisconsin is known for building some amazing Mopar muscle machines. Whether it be movie cars, SEMA builds, or even the carbon fiber HELLEPHANT-powered 1968 Dodge Charger for the Head of Stellantis Design, the SpeedKore team never seems to disappoint.
Over the past year, the SpeedKore team has come up with a number of “What If” ideas with the help of an amazing digital designer we have featured here several times before, Abimelec Arellano (@AbimelecDesign). So much to our surprise, they have decided to release another idea for a possible carbon fiber Mopar muscle car, this time with some odd choice of power under the hood.
“Introducing ‘Krampus,’ a fitting name given the Advent season and one sure to draw some ire this holiday,” SpeedKore posted on its social media accounts on Friday. “And that’s the point. The “What If” series is about pushing the envelope and breaking norms, showing what imagination can do.”
The result is a carbon-clad 1972 Dodge Demon with a high-revving “spoolyboii” under the hood. A set of custom front fenders with a bit of inspiration from the SPOON S2000 widebody kit along with a set of rear fender flares housing some sticky R888R tires wrapped around a set of blue Volk TE37 wheels complete the look.
The interior features FK8 Type R seats, an Alcantara dash, and a custom steering wheel. The digital instrument cluster is from a Honda S2000, creating a modern feel. The carbon-fiber hood is custom, using the modern dual-snorkel scoops from a modern Challenger Hellcat Redeye. These scoops feed direct air into a custom carbon fiber airbox that sits right below the hood, in a similar fashion to Mopar’s iconic Air Grabber scoop.
While SpeedKore hasn’t made an announcement of producing such a vehicle, we wouldn’t put it past them. They are the team that did stuff a 9.0-liter Mercury Racing twin-turbo Marine V8 making 1,650 horsepower into a carbon fiber-bodied 1970 Dodge Charger!
Anyways, it’s a cool idea in our opinion. It looks like it could be the next American-Japanese hybrid muscle car for another installment of “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift”. Remember the Nissan RB26-powered 1967 Ford Mustang fastback?
