It’s difficult to imagine a production car more singularly focused than the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. From the factory, the car comes without both a front passenger seat and a rear seat, shaving 113 pounds off the big-boned Challenger. Now, it looks like the lightweight aficionados over at SpeedKore are ready to help trim the Demon’s weight further with new carbon-fiber body panels.
Following last year’s debut of its carbonized Challenger SRT Hellcat, SpeedKore will roll out a Demon showcar wearing a full assortment of carbon-fiber body panels, including the fenders, bumpers, hood, and rear decklid. SpeedKore isn’t letting on how much weight this shaves from the 4,280-pound coupe, but considering the carbon panels on the similar SpeedKore GT350R project saved “at least 400 pounds,” it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine at least a 500-pound reduction.
Complete details remain scant, but more information will be revealed after the car’s official debut at this year’s SEMA show. As a bonus, Sammy Hagar, the Red Rocker himself, will be on hand to pull the covers off the SpeedKore Demon, so make sure you stop by the debut.
