Project Super Neon, Part 5

The Little Dodge Heats Up!

After a slow start, we decided to get serious about Project Super Neon. So serious that we added a body kit (see the previous installment), a screaming paint scheme, and a set of 17-inch Borbet wheels with Pirelli tires. To say we’ve altered the look of our Neon from stock would be like saying Gorbachev altered the Soviet Union. This little Dodge doesn’t say "Hi" anymore. Instead, it shouts, "Get outta my way!"

Additional thanks go to The Tire Rack for supplying the wheels and tires. The 7.5-inch-wide Borbet Type Cs and Pirelli 205/40-17s gives our Neon more stick than flypaper. The "Touring White" wheel color, along with the lowered stance provided by Suspension Techniques springs, gives this Mopar a low-down race look. Desis Accessories applied the window tint that keeps out prying eyes, while a Pace Setter after-cat system will be in place by the time you read this. What about engine and interior mods? They’re coming, but we don’t want to ruin the surprise. Just check out the next installment and, if you live in Southern California, your local racetrack.
