This week, I spoke to Lyle Brummer of Speedkore Performance Group. Speedkore specializes in one-off high performance car builds that meld craftsmanship and high end technology to produce stunning works of art. They are known for their stunning carbon fiber bodywork that resembles the original but at a much higher refinement than ever used in a production build.

Speedkore was founded in 2015 by local businessman Jim Kacmarcik when he saw an opportunity to gather a team of highly talented craftsmen to form an organization that would produce amazing cars. They are also well known for building full or partially carbon fiber bodied muscle cars, particularly 1970 Dodge Chargers, with high horsepower engines.

The first such vehicle, Tantrum, sported some carbon fiber panels and highlights in the woven wonder material, but the second vehicle named Evolution upped the game like no other and produced a fully carbon fiber 1970 Charger. Speedkore currently produces parts for sale and you too can own these technological wonders for your classic ride.

The cars Speedkore builds attracts customers of all kinds….even famous ones! In fact their list of customers reads like a red carpet guest list at a Hollywood movie premiere. Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, and Kevin Hart are all customers. Kevin Hart specifically is the owner of Hellraiser, the latest full carbon 1970 Charger powered by a 1,000 horsepower MOPAR “Hellephant” engine, custom designed frame and suspension, and a 14 point roll cage.
