It’s easy to forget about the original SVO Mustangs. Sometime around the mid-eighties, Ford figured out that the Mustang needed to be fast without wasting fuel. What they ended up doing is rejigging the pinto 2.3 with turbo power, raising the performance of the car to a spirited 200hp.
Of course, it’s also easy to forget that turbos work quite well. With a little massaging, these 4 bangers can easily be both fast and discreet.
