2020 Dodge Charger With More Than 1000 Horsepower to Premier at SEMA 2019


The 2019 Speciality Equipment Market Association auto show is almost here. With over 70,000 potential buyers expected to turn up, Dodge is looking to make a powerful statement. At this year’s event, the performance auto brand will exhibit a twin-turbo AWD Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody, a beast of a machine that’s allegedly capable of achieving more than 1,000 horsepower.


The custom build comes courtesy of Speedkore Performance, a Wisconsin-based auto shop that’s all about getting the most power out of today’s best vehicles. At last year’s SEMA show, Speedkore exhibited a 1970 Charger Evolution with carbon and aluminum body panels, and an amazing 996-horsepower Hellcat engine strapped to a six-speed transmission.  Alongside that 1970 Charger, Speedkore also showed a twin-turbo Hellcat-powered Dodge Demon that produced nearly 1,400 horses.


This year, Speedkore is coming back to Dodge once again, this time with a modern Charger that they hope will meet, or perhaps even exceed last year’s benchmark. The company teased a render of the rumored 2020 Charger on Facebook earlier this month, stating, “All we’re going to say is this all-wheel drive, twin-turbo, widebody Charger is going to be unveiled at the Magnaflow booth.” 


Speedkore has been strategically silent on the details, but the latest rumor on the upcoming custom Charger is that the car will feature a 6.2-liter Demon Hemi V-8 that’s swapped its supercharger for twin turbos. It’s possible the shop could have borrowed a Grand Cherokee Trackhawk AWD system and beefed it up for the all-new Charger, thereby creating an all-new powertrain unit that divided those horses properly so that the car’s tires have a hope of handling them.


Looking at the image that Speedkore provided, it appears that some of last year’s steel body panels have received carbon fiber replacements and that the two holes that can be seen in the front wheel arch are exhaust outlets. These outlets are designed to accommodate Magnaflow’s custom-built exhaust system that’s complete with a driver-selectable switch which allows the vehicle’s gasses to be ported out the front or the back depending on the desired decibel level. 


The custom-built 1,000 horsepower Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody will be revealed at the Magnaflow booth in SEMA’s central hall on November 5. The reveal will also be streamed via MagnaFlow’s Facebook page.
