You Can Have a Carbon-Bodied GT350R for $127,000

  You Can Have a Carbon-Bodied GT350R for $127,000 Jay Leno checks out a GT350R that shed its steel body for one made all of carbon fiber.The Shelby GT350R is the most track-ready Mustang ever built since its namesake debuted in 1965, but it's still a heavy car. Even with carbon fiber wheels, a rear-seat delete, and other light-weighting measures, the GT350R still weighs around 3700 lbs. Wisconsin shop SpeedKore Performance has the solution, but it's not cheap.

Chrysler debuted the full Dodge Challenger line for 2009, with four different trims – SE, R/T, SRT 8, and the SXT in Canada only. The SRT Demon is a more powerful wide body version of the Challenger .

If the straightline speed of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon wasn't enough for you, SpeedKore revealed a Demon showcar with full carbon fiber body panels.

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 backseat, shaving 113 pounds off of 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.

How the Demon Uses its A/C to Make More Power

  How the Demon Uses its A/C to Make More Power One of the Demon's most clever tricks is actually pretty simple to understand.In order to make sure the Demon's intake receives air cool enough to make 840 supercharged horsepower, Dodge used the car's air-conditioning system to chill intake temps. How do they do it? It actually pretty simple.

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon : This Is Apparently It. Dodge has already confirmed the existence of a “ Demon Crate” PCM and the ability to run on 100 octane fuel, this existence of a separate high-powered mode seems highly plausible.

Following last year's debut of its carbonized Challenger SRT Hellcat, SpeedKore will roll out a Demon show car 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 an equivalent reduction on the larger Demon.
