Drive like Dom in this mid-engine Charger.
SpeedKore has unveiled their latest creation which’s actually a road-going version of the Charger that Vin Diesel’s character, Dominic Toretto, drives in the “F9” film. Called “Hellacious,” this insane 1968 Charger is a mid-engine monster that’s powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 engine. In total, it can lay down 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. That power is sent through a gated manual Graziano transaxle that’s actually from a Lamborghini Gallardo. What’s more, this is the first mid-engine classic Charger that SpeedKore has ever created. Its widebody design comes from Sean Smith Designs and is crafted from carbon fiber, similar to SpeedKore’s previous Chargers.
“This Charger is one of our most extreme builds to date,” said Jim Kacmarcik, president and owner of SpeedKore. “After commissioning renowned designer Sean Smith to design the car and working with F9’s picture vehicle coordinator Dennis McCarthy to build the nine chassis and vehicle bodies for the film, we wanted to bring the movie magic of F9 to life. ‘Hellacious’ is a road-going version of the movie car with the functionality of a purpose-built performance car.”
