The Speedkore 1970 Charger, known as Evolution, shows the culmination of ideas and technology that put them on the industry map as one of the premier custom builders in the country. With a body made nearly completely out of carbon fiber, a high horsepower Hemi, and an impeccable attention to detail showing high quality craftsmanship, the Evolution Charger is sure to turn the automotive world on it’s head when it debuts at the SEMA show in 2018.
On a special pre-SEMA Show 2018 episode, the Gearheads welcome David Salvaggio and Lyle Brummer of Speedkore. We talk carbon fiber, carbon fiber Chargers and then Alex asks more questions about carbon fiber. We also talk World Record-holding Dodge Demons, engineering, business, a plea for a Jamaican Rally Car Team, and then Alex asks about carbon fiber again.
In May of 2007, the aerospace company I am employed with was contacted by Marvel and the U.S. Air Force to provide an aircraft to use as a backdrop during in-hangar filming shots. Marvel wanted to have two of the most modern aircraft available, so they chose the F-22 Raptor and the RQ-4A Global Hawk. They got that and more, and we got to hang out with Tony Stark.
