If you're reading this, chances are you're already familiar with SpeedKore's highly modified 1970 Dodge Charger. Introduced by the aftermarket company at SEMA in 2018, it has a fully carbon-fiber body and looks menacing. Originally, the car was powered by a 966-hp supercharged 6.2-liter Demon V-8. But it's since been swapped out for one of Dodge's 1000-hp Hellephant crate engines. It sounds wonderful on the dyno.

SpeedKore released video of its 1970 Charger hitting the dyno post-swap, giving us an idea of how that supercharged 7.0-liter Hellephant engine sounds when it's actually in a car. According to a representative, the shop is still finalizing the engine's tune, but it's expecting to achieve somewhere in the realm of 900 horsepower to the rear wheels when finished. Here's what the engine looks like installed into the car:

Usually, show cars like this Charger are given one moment in the spotlight before they're tucked away forever. We're glad SpeedKore is committed to the continued development of this car, even years after its initial debut. It's too cool to be forgotten.
