Hmmm looks like quite an old car early 90's I would say & since LHD imports were allowed then you could import them.

There are quite a few (usually badly maintained) Neons you can spot in Delhi, and seen a couple here in Chennai too...and yes, all LHD IIRC

why would someone import a Dodge Neon!! - unless ofcourse someone in the American embassy had a really very strong emotional attachment to it.

this isn't even the SRT-4 - Dodge's version of a pocket-rocket.

At this point of time when the neon was under DODGE there was no SRT-4 availle.Later they gave a facelift and made it better,better looks, better reliability and came under CHRYSLER.The final year of the car from the US factory was 2005.Though the car had a 2.0 engine, it is pathetic, sluggish and what not..resale goes SOUTHWARDS by 30% the moment u step down the showroom.
