    Wow...

    Chrysler followed last year's Viper-powered Tomahawk motorcycle with the equally outrageous ME Four Twelve. The name may be clunky, but the performance would be anything but: With a lightweight carbon fiber chassis and 850 horses from a mid-mounted, four-turbocharger V-12, the ME -- according to Chrysler's computer simulations -- could shatter the three-second barrier from 0-60 mph, run a 10.6 second quarter-mile at 142 mph, and achieve a top speed of 248 mph. While actual production seems a dubious proposition, Chrysler Group CEO Dieter Zetsche insisted the company will seriously consider the business case to make this American supercar a reality

    Supposed to be a retro thing, something stylish I guess. . . it worked on you, you picked out that its a chrysler thing. . . its like familiarization (is that even a word), people can pick out the car by a trait that it has.

    Its ghetto if you ask me and I don't like the looks of the lines, I feel is something the Dailmer guys prolly wanted them to do.

    The supercar race? Ummm. . . .. this is new to me? Lemme guess, its where all the supercars race? Like., . . . reeeeally reeeeeally expensive cars and shit?

    I doubt it they will, the other car companies will find something to cry and complain about. Chrysler already lost the world's fastest production car title for quarter mile, so why not be knocked outta the supercar race (fuck you ford! FUCK YOU!)

    Be nice wouldn't it? Chrysler was the first of the big three however to break the 200 mph speed barrier, they did it at Daytona in 1969. And before the 200 mph barrier, they had the record at 199.89

    some folks don't race every second,

    when i buy a car i got for new interesting gadgets and such and also a nice looking interior since thats what i look at the entire time i'm driving.

    but i'll be glad when i sell my car and laugh at what i got for it compared to the neon.

    Well of course you would laugh, they don't make neon's anymore! Dodge dropped the name Neon when they came out with the Sx 2.0's and SRT-4's, so, go sell your Integra and compare the resale to the Neon. And besides, if its such a great and amazing car, why would you be so concerned about selling it in the first place?

    for a new and better car :)

    won't be selling it though for a few years so no worries

    it isn't called a neon???????????? why is it listed as neon on there website?

    are you sure the srt and sx is just a "version" of the neon??

    like the rsx has base/premium/type s????

    i can't see them dropping the name since it still is a neon.

    Why is your car called an RSX then? Last I checked, you can get something that looks JUST like your car outside of America, and its called and Integra. And yeah, they ploy away from the name Neon cause of the past reputation it had, and people are such retards that they think in 8 years of making car a car company won't fix a problem with head gaskets blowing out.
