2. Ford Mustang SVO

Ford’s SVO (Special Vehicle Operations) department introduced a special Mustang SVO for 1984 which featured a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 175 hp. It was quite the power output for a small engine. As a light car, the `84 Mustang SVO was pretty hot at the moment.

The package included four-wheel disc brakes, stiffer suspension, and sharper steering, transforming the little Mustang into quite a capable sports car. For 1985, the SVO upped the power to pretty impressive 205 hp which turned the eyes of the motoring public to third-generation Mustangs.
