Aesthetically, Ripp's Cody Nelson gave the car a more aggressive look by debadging the Dodge Stratus R/T and renaming it with GTS emblems sourced from a Viper GTS. The rear lights were spray tinted, a process Ripp Modifications offers in-house, and a $6,000 HID head lighting system was incorporated, along with a custom mesh grille treatment at the nose.

We aren't sure if the Stratus R/T will be accepted like a Saleen Mustang. But there's no doubt Ripp is doing it right. It's a no-lose situation if the lofty, limited edition aspirations fall short Ripp has illustrated the performance possibilities of the 6G72; and 335 wheel hp will appeal to plenty of Stratus/Eclipse owners.
