Ford Thunderbird Super Coupe
Ford presented the 10th generation of the venerable Thunderbird in 1989 with a redesigned platform and more elegant, sleeker body. This was a luxury coupe with no sporty ambitions. However, the Ford engineers managed to sneak an interesting performance model that drivers considered a muscle car. Ant that was the Thunderbird Super Coupe.
Just like the Turbo Coupe, the SC had a smaller engine. But this time, they supercharged it to achieve a higher performance. The 3.8-liter V8 got a supercharger and intercooler as well as a high-tech motor management system. And it delivered 210 HP, which was respectable.
Many car experts praised the SC for its handling and braking capabilities. It also hit high top speeds, courtesy of its aerodynamic shape and clever engineering. Also, the acceleration from 0 to 60 mph was 7.5 seconds.
