    SpeedKore shocked us with its 1,400-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon build at the 2018 SEMA show, but we now have a good look at just how brutal of a machine it is. Video from That Racing Channel on YouTube shows SpeedKore's extra demonic Challenger SRT Demon hit the dragstrip. Let's make this clear: it sounds angry. The 1,400 hp is the figure measured at the crank, but 1,203 hp still makes its way to the rear wheels. The Wisconsin-based shop had one goal when it set out to build the car: make the fastest Demon on the planet. We'd say Speedkore succeeded because the car ran an...
