SpeedKore is no stranger to building cars that look more fantasy than reality, but their latest creation takes the cake: a 1968 Dodge Charger driven by none other than Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) in the Fast & Furious film, F9. It’s essentially the stuff of your darkest dreams brought to life. Fitting, then, that it’s called ‘Hellacious.’
Pop the hood and you’ll be surprised by the sight of an empty bay where there was once an engine — this piece of American muscle’s had its Hellcat moved to the back. Pumping out 707hp and 650lb-ft of torque when mated to a manual Graziano transaxle from a Lamborghini Gallardo, the 6.2L V8 even had to be mounted in a specially-engineered SpeedKore frame. And here’s the thing: this mid-engined Charger is more than a cool party trick; it’s built to move. Riding on a double-wishbone suspension setup from the specialists at Race Car Replicas, it sports QA1 track shocks, Brembo calipers front and rear, as well as a hydraulic handbrake for some added driftability. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, SpeedKore has even given it a bespoke carbon-fiber widebody by Sean Smith Designs. Catch it in theaters or learn more about the build at the link below.
