One Special Dodge Neon Breaks 200 MPH Barrier

When it comes to unleashing the full potential of a car, few places rival the Texas Mile. As the name suggests, this event offers a sprawling, mile-long stretch of pavement where enthusiasts can push their vehicles to the limit without having to worry about safety concerns or red and blue lights lurking over their shoulders.

Among the impressive array of cars vying for top honors are exotic supercars and machines like the Nissan GT-R and Chevrolet Corvette. It’s no surprise to see these high-performance machines dominating the leaderboard with blistering speeds.

Yet, amidst the lineup of formidable contenders, there occasionally emerges a sleeper—a seemingly unassuming car that defies expectations and leaves a lasting impression.

This is where our story meets a Dodge Neon. Not typically associated with high-speed pursuits, especially considering its lackluster performance variants throughout its production history. However, in a remarkable turn of events, a 1998 Dodge Neon modified by High PSI Performance stole the spotlight at the Texas Mile.

This turbocharged powerhouse, though diminutive in stature, proved its mettle on the track. Equipped with a turbo and fueled by race gas, the Neon embarked on a quest to push the boundaries of speed.

Despite its unassuming appearance, the heavily modified sleeper exceeded all expectations, clocking in at an astounding 200.9 mph. Such a feat not only surprised onlookers but also surpassed the capabilities of the timing system itself which was really a cause for excitement. High PSI Performance
