If they'd lose that black trim...

Looks pretty good to me...but then I like the Caliber's exterior to begin with. Should be a real monster if they somehow figured a way to manage torque steer and understeer without the aid of AWD.

Dear Caliber SRT,

Please give me my body panels back. I feel cold and naked.

Signed,

Pontiac Grand Am.

Come anywhere near sharing body panels....note the lack of stupid ribbing on the Caliber.

Just the general nature of goofy tackons and a hoodscoop that I'm sure is totally functional to a poor original design.

A 300 HP 4-cyl turbo needs to expel heat somehow.

At least it doesn't look a total add-on like the holes on the front of the original srt-4:

Thing is, the Neon SRT-4 actually looked as it should - a hopped-from-the-factory sport compact, not some near-midsize wagon with chunky lines.

It looks tacky.

I think it's hella attractive! And if performance is like they promise it'll blow the damn HHR SS out of the water. (Which, BTW looks more cobbled and unnatural than this by far)

I've always liked the funky looks of the Caliber, then again, I drive a Focus ZX3 so funky little runabouts hold a special place in my heart. The SRT-4 version looks awesome!

It really reminds me of the ORIGINAL Vibe showcar (The yellow one) that actually showed promise before GM f--ed it up into the lame Vibe GT that we know now.

It's middle scoop is to aid air intake, the two side vents (they aren't scoops) air for letting air out. Assuming these are functional, they there's every reason to have them on their...as opposed to the tacky, useless ones on the Grand Am.

Yes yes. Since it's not a GM product it must be hideous.

Although I much prefer the Neon SRT-4, this thing will slap almost anything else silly in the sheer numbers department.

At least it doesn't have that hideous basket handle fin of the Cobalt SS Supercharge/ION RedLine.

The Caliber SRT-4s have been running around Michigan highways for at least a year. This is hardly a scoop. If I knew people were looking for an "unmasked" pic of them, I'd have taken one.

That's what I was thinking, Ive seen a few driving around Windsor for awhile now. Looks good in person.
