What do you get when you strip over 405 pounds from the already perky Neon SRT-4 and feed nearly 370 horses through the overworked front wheels? We don't know (well, besides an SRT-4 Extreme Lightweight), but you'd better a) hold onto the steering wheel for dear life when putting down the hammer coming out of a turn and if you're like me you should b) avoid standing up for a few minutes. Taking a cue from other factory hotrodders, the mad scientists at Mopar applied the tried-and-true principle of automotive go-fasterism: strip off everything you don't need, replace what you do with carbon fiber, bolt on a bigger turbo, and orchestrate it all with fancier fuel management. The result is a front wheel drive car that hits 60 in 4.7 seconds and rips off the 1/4 in twelve and a half seconds.
Less is more. More or Less.
