Although we don't doubt it's been done, turning a Dodge Neon or Caliber into a race car would be a bit of a stretch. The Dart, however, is another beast entirely. So people stood up and noticed when Dodge announced it was fielding a competition version of its Alfa Romeo-based compact sedan – with no less prominent a performer than Travis Pastrana behind the wheel – in the Global RallyCross Championship.

Now the rally-spec Dart has debuted here under the bright lights of the New York Auto Show – all 600 horsepower of it. And as far as competition versions of Dodge economy sedans go, it sure looks the business. Especially since Alfa hasn't taken the Giulietta on which the Dart is based to any races we've seen, anyway. Check it out in our gallery of high-resolution photos from the Javitz Center show floor.
