Carbon fiber, Twin-Turbo Demon destroys Drag Strip

Speedkore has made a name for itself by replacing steel, aluminum and fiberglass body panels with carbon fiber, especially on muscle cars from the current Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger SRT Demon to the Dodge Charger and Plymouth Barracuda from 1970.

If there is anything the demon needs to apologize for, it is his weight, which fluctuates around 2 1/4 tons in the configuration of the stock (slightly less if you choose to dispense with a passenger seat, boot lining or other goodies). Carrying all that weight in the air, however, does not seem to harm the performance of the straight line. we've all heard the incredible numbers before: 0-60 in less than three seconds, with the quarter mile well below ten seconds. It is impressive to say the least.

Speedkore has made the supercharged Demon even more impressive with two very big changes: they have replaced the entire body with lightweight carbon fiber. They then exchanged the stock supercharger for a few turbo's, increasing the power to more than 1200 on the wheels – one and a half times the factory power at the crank. That results in a truly amazing quarter-second time of 8.7 seconds with a downward speed of 162 miles per hour, according to Road & Track.

Please note that this has been achieved with a car whose road is registered, with headlights, rear lights, direction indicators, airbags, air conditioning, power windows and cruise control. Our mind is inflated as high as the sky.

While the angry supercharger of the stock Demon sounds pretty bad, the coil of the double turbochargers sounds downright devilish. Originally built for last year's SEMA show, this Demon carbon fiber has undoubtedly proven to be more than just a pretty face.
