In case you’re into carbon-fiber rebodies of classic muscle automobiles, SpeedKore might be already in your radar; if not, you are still in all probability accustomed to their creations. SpeedKore was answerable for Kevin Hart’s “Hellraiser” and the Quick & Livid clone dubbed “Hellacious,” each of which made the rounds once they have been accomplished. This time round, the automobile is known as “Ghost,” however the formulation must be acquainted.
Whereas there are many mechanical causes for the upgrades discovered on Ghost, it is as a lot a murals as it’s a piece of high-performance equipment. No horsepower determine was given, for instance; SpeedKore says solely that the “re-worked” 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 sends greater than 700 horsepower to the rear wheels. Strictly talking, that is true of a traditional Hellcat too.
However we will not actually maintain SpeedKore’s toes to the fireplace right here as a result of, effectively, a Hellcat is already a reasonably ridiculous efficiency machine, and there are others building badass Mopar rebodies who’re additionally content material to go away the powertrain effectively sufficient alone. Inheriting that a lot energy in SpeedKore’s light-weight customized chassis ought to make the Ghost a lot fast sufficient to do absolutely anything a driver and that fancy suspension may ask of it.
“Ghost represents the evolution of its predecessors and builds on SpeedKore’s mission to manufacture essentially the most superior 1970 Dodge Charger on this planet,” mentioned Jim Kacmarcik, president and proprietor of SpeedKore. “Our purpose is to meld timeless design, superior composites and dependable efficiency to redefine what the American muscle automobile must be.”
There’s hardly an aftermarket provider whose title cannot be discovered someplace on Ghost’s construct sheet. The wheels come from HRE; the brakes are Brembo; the suspension is put collectively from components provided by Penske, Detroit Velocity and Woodward together with a pile of in-house components produced by SpeedKore. The remedy inside is equally meticulous, wanting each bit the a part of a film hero automobile even in these photographs.
