  1. Speedkore’s Evolution Charger

    Leave a Comment

    The first time we saw this ride was at the 2018 SEMA Show. And now, SpeedKore Performance Group’s Demon-powered, carbon fiber-bodied 1970 Dodge Charger has rolled into Jay Leno’s Garage for a visit. The car, known as the Evolution may look like a ’70 Charger but was actually built on a custom frame. Under the hood is the familiar 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 from the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. When all of SpeedKore’s modifications are said and done, the engine produces 966 horsepower (that’s up from the stock 840-hp.)

    Check out the episode below to hear SpeedKore boss Dave Salvaggio explain the build in full detail. Enjoy.

    Gabriel Iglesias rolls into the garage in a beautiful cherry red 1969 Chevelle SS to tell Jay how he came to purchase it. Spoiler alert: he went to Barrett-Jackson to sell cars but ended up buying this beaut. Check out the episode below and listen to them talk about this absolute classic, and how it still rides as smooth as ever. Enjoy.

  3. The Hellcat XR

    Well, well, well, what do we have here? Some good ol’ American muscle power taking its talents to the drag strip. Watch in awe as this machine flexes its 2.4-Liter twin-screw supercharged Hemi and puts that 888-horsepower and 737pound-feet of torque to work. Enjoy.

  4. The Ford Galaxie

    It’s been 50 years since the Ford Galaxie crossed the finish line in first at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship. Fans can attribute a lot to the car and just as much to its driver Ned Jarrett. The duo (Jarrett and his Galaxie) secured 13 wins and nine poles that season not to mention 36 top-three finishes. Not too shabby. See the Galaxie in action, right here:
