Ford's Mustang is mostly known for its mighty V8s. But in 1986, the most powerful engine in the Mustang lineup was the 2.3L turbocharged SVO 4-cylinder. 

With 205 horsepower, the turbo 2.3L offered five more ponies than the fuel-injected 5.0L V8. Impressive numbers aside, 1986 would also mark the demise of the turbocharged 4-cylinder Mustangs. 

In addition to the fiery four-banger, SVO models included a single headlight design that would become the norm for all Mustangs in 1987, along with an offset hood scoop, unique badging and brushed aluminum wheels.
