1998 was the first year for the Neon R/T. I know i got the first blue with sliver striped in the state of Minn. From Rosedale Dodge. Great little car out cornered any thing out there. Like a go cart for the street.
They're kinda fun to drive like a go kart or something. The one I have driven before was an 00', not an SRT but it was really fast, just a lot of heavy vibration from the engine, but that one was pretty quick so I imagine the SRT is pretty bad. I've got a Neon up on two wheels before, stupid but I did it when I was mobbin' one time. Although faster and they handle like a little race car I'd still rather have my Trep but a little Neon SRT to drive on the side would be tight.
Yeah, ricers watch out, I'm sure it's a speed demon!
Neon SRT - It's an awesome car. Especially for the money.
Did any of you guys see the Razor ??? They're talking about building that one as well with a base price of 14.9 !!!
You know they should have done that Plymouth concept, the 2 seater sports car (which they said they could sell for a profit at 19.9),
I saw it at an Auto show and it too was awesome. Honda fighter for a fraction of the price. I must admit I'm partial to the Copperhead,too.
The Razor looks suspiciously close in size & shape to the Mercedes Kompressor coup. In the info section they said it was designed in Germany so maybe its a cheap redesign of the Mercedes???? Its also just a little slower than the Neon SRT-4.
I also think Dodge was smart putting the turbo on the Neon just to get past the emissions geeks. Once you get your hands on the SRT-4 you can mod it to the max and CRUSH the rest of the ricer trash easy!!!!!
