When you’re looking for some of the craziest builds that mostly deal with pure American muscle, Speedkore has it all. We’ve seen them work their magic mostly on different types of Dodge Chargers before. Yet this next ride is different in many ways. We have a concept render of a murdered Plymouth Barracuda with the help of Abimelic Designs.
Make no mistake, the aftermarket outfit does a terrific job with its own bespoke takes, but third-party information can lead to some awesome collaborations like this. The outfit operating out of Grafton, Wis., enlists the creative chops of Abimelec Arellano to imagine a pumped-up racer with the aforementioned two-door pony car as its donor.
Normally the garage guys show off actual models with working examples on hand. This release, however, is purely digital despite how it looks in the images. This Speedkore x Abimelic Designs project is the third in their “What If” collection. If he produces jaw-dropping machines like this, we don’t want it to end.
The social media post reads: “Inspired by Glen Bunch’s iconic ’74 Challenger, we asked the brilliant @AbimelecDesign to create the ultimate IMSA AAGT ‘Cuda!” Speedkore’s input equips the Plymouth Barracuda with a custom composite body. Bare carbon fiber drapes the exterior in a striking black weave.
It strikes a menacing and slammed stance of all the custom add-ons. Under the hood would be a 6.2-liter HEMI V8 good for 808 horsepower. Speedkore sources from a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Side exhaust outlets remind you of classic hot rods. Inside, there’s a single seat with a multi-point harness and full roll bar in blue metallic.
