It took more than two years to build but now Speedcore Hallucination, complete with the 1,000-hp Halifant V-8, has been released worldwide.
The car is the latest creation by Wild Wizards of the Speedcore Performance Group in Wisconsin and is based on the 1968 Dodge Charger. It was commissioned by none other than Ralph Giles, head of Stalantis Design, who described it as his “dream car.”
The Hellephant engine powers the car with a 7.0-liter supercharged V-8 that is more closely related to the Hellcat. It generates a whopping 1,000 hp and 950 pound-feet of torque and is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission in Hallucination and powers only the rear wheels. These rear wheels are wrapped in huge 20×12-inch custom HRE and 345/30-size tires. One pair is available in front of 19×9-inch wheels and wrapped in 245/35-size tires.
Similar configuration features to the 1970 charger that Speedcore created for actor and comedian Kevin Hart.
Managing large power is certainly a talent in Speedcore but the company’s real claim to fame is to build a complete body out of carbon fiber and feature more carbon fiber than any previous build before hallucination. This is probably best highlighted by the car’s carbon-fiber floor pan, a single large part that replaces the eight welded metal parts in the stock charger. The design is like a race car and helps to improve the rigidity and rigidity of the whole structure.
SpeedKore also uses a custom frame that has a roll cage for perimeter reinforcement and build. Attached is a custom four-bar with double A-arm front suspension from Detroit Speed and a diagonal link used on the back. Completing the setup is the adjustable coil-over from Pensk and the swing bar from Detroit Speed. Stopping power comes from the Brembo brake package with a six-piston caliper on the front and a dual four-piston caliper on the rear.
Speedcore has also created a custom interior for cars. It features a kicker 2,000-watt audio system with seats from the Gab’s custom interior, a gauge from classic instruments and six speakers and a dual subwoofer.
“The ’68 charger is my all-time favorite vintage American car,” Giles said in an Instagram post on Wednesday. “It’s a really enjoyable journey to have this incredible opportunity to mix new and old school like a fine cocktail, using the latest technology.”
