Auto Shows Speedkore roaring into SEMA with twin-turbo AWD Charger Hellcat Widebody
Before the Crash: Kevin Hart’s 1970 ’Cuda
Kevin Hart’s 1970 ’Cuda—which was recently involved in an accident that left the comedian with a serious back injury—is no stranger to the HOT ROD family. The car was originally built as a SEMA Show car by SpeedKore, a company that's pushed boundaries by utilizing carbon fiber instead of the more traditional steel, and author Christopher Campbell described some of the build philosophy in a May 2017 Mopar Muscle article: "The bold Mopar colors of the late '60s and early '70s look great, but they're too brazen for this build.
More than 1,000 horsepower and a trick exhaust will make much noise
Speedkore Performance is nowhere near finished with the. At last year's show, the Wisconsin-based tuner showed a with carbon and aluminum body panels, and a 996-horsepower Hellcat engine yoked to a six-speed transmission. This year of a 2020 Hellcat Widebody on Facebook with the line, "All we're going to say is this all-wheel drive, twin-turbo, widebody Charger is going to be unveiled at the Magnaflow booth." information, the first being that we're in for another tuned version of the 6.2-liter Demon Hemi V8 that's swapped its supercharger for twin turbos, and produces more than 1,000 horsepower.
Ringbrothers drops more hints about its wild SEMA creations
A Camaro called Valkyrja, a Mustang named Unkl, and a Caddy known as Madam V Ringbrothers isn't finished teasing its SEMA creations. First we got a sliver of rear quarter on a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro that revealed a bundle of carbon fiber and SEMA-obligatory deep-dish wheels. The Wisconsin tuner's now announced its litter of cars headed to the show and a few specs, along with two shadowy drawings. The Camaro, christened with the name Valkyrja and a two-tone paint job, gets stretched in two directions with severe fender flares to widen the body and an extended wheelbase.
Last year, alongside that 1970 Charger, Speedkore unveiled amaking almost 1,400 horsepower. We don't know yet if this year's Charger will match that output — or exceed it — but we have a benchmark. An all-wheel-drive powertrain divides those horses so the tires have a chance of conquering them. Speedkore's mum on the mechanicals; the firm could have swiped a Trackhawk AWD unit and beefed it up, or created its own system.
Some of the steel body panels get carbon fiber replacements, and see those two holes in he front wheel arch? Those are exhaust outlets. MagnaFlow created a custom exhaust with a driver-selectable switch to port gases out the front, say at the track when decibels don't matter, or to send waste through MagnaFlow mufflers and out the rear pipes when silence is required.
The reveal happens at the Magnaflow booth in SEMA's Central Hall on November 5. Those that can't make the show can watch the reveal on.

As forced induction becomes the norm, supercharging remains outside of it.Supercharging, the other primary form of forced induction, mostly skips the fuel-economy play for raw power, and solves turbos' low-rpm power lag with instant-on air supply for the engine's intake. Both are fun, but there's little else that rivals the punch of a supercharger.
