This is an obvious case of "shut up and take my money"

Hey, look what we found on Bring a Trailer: it’s a carbon-fiber-bodied 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon built by SpeedKore. And it only has less than 200 miles on the odometer! And it’s only one of five such cars built by the Wisconsin-based tuner!

Lighter and better looking

SpeedKore estimates that its carbon fiber Demon is 200 pounds lighter than the car Dodge used to sell (which is fitted with steel body panels from the factory).

That’s because every bit and bob of the body is made of carbon fiber fabric pre-impregnated with epoxy resin (the process is called pre-preg, by the way), then molded and cured at SpeedKore’s autoclave - think of an over-sized, pressurized oven.

Needless to say, SpeedKore’s input doesn’t touch on the Demon’s performance credentials. That means that whoever buys the car will be getting the stock Dodge powertrain revolving around a 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 good for 808 horsepower and 717 pound-feet of torque on premium fuel (or 840 horsepower on 100+ octane plus the $1 Demon Crate Pack).

The engine is also slapped with a 2.7-liter supercharger that feeds in as much as 14.5 psi of boost. Subsequently, the gearbox is the stock offering, namely the eight-speed auto ‘box with the TransBrake gizmo.

At the time of writing, there were five days left before the bidding ended (which is Monday, August 3 at 10:00 pm) and the highest current bid was posted by user HellcatDan at a cool $92,500.

Is this car worth buying? Well, duh! Dodge isn’t building the Demon anymore and with SpeedKore’s treatment, you’ll never worry about the neighbor pulling up in front of your driveway in an exactly identical car. Plus, you’ll be getting a piece of American car culture and ultimately, one car that has the potential to consistently multiply its value over the years.

Or, you could ask nicely the guys over at SpeedKore to sell you the world’s fastest Demon which was upgraded to Lucifer level. Check it out below:

As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read More
