Now, American custom car builder SpeedKore resurrected a certain 1970 Dodge Charger featuring modern components and a seriously powerful engine. SpeedKore dubbed the said car as Hellraiser, which is equipped with a Hellephant supercharged 7.0-liter V8 crate engine that can deliver 1,000 hp and 1,287 Nm of torque. The engine is connected to a Dodge Demon-spec ZF 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission.     

“The entire SpeedKore team is excited to unveil our first Hellephant-powered car. The Hellephant is the most powerful crate engine ever offered by an OE manufacturer. When we found out we would be receiving one of the engines from Mopar, we had already been in talks about a new build,” SpeedKore President Jim Kacmarcik said. 

Kacmarcik added that the Charger Hellraiser is the pinnacle of SpeedKore design and engineering. As such, the company is “excited to share this custom build with the world.”

Kevin Hart will surely enjoy this Charger

SpeedKore says the 1970 Dodge Charger Hellraiser is built for actor and comedian Kevin Hart. The American custom car builder shared that the design direction for Hart’s Hellraiser is to achieve a modern muscle car appeal. From the looks of it, SpeedKore may have done just that as the 1970 Dodge Charger Hellraiser is a sleek-looking muscle car.  

The company said that the front grille of the car is machined from solid aluminum and coated in a gray titanium finish. It also comes with a pillarless quarter-glass that makes the Charger Hellraiser’s character line flow smoothly from front to rear.
