12. GMC Syclone
In the 1980s, GM experimented with turbocharged engines, which was in sync with industry trends back then. GM took an ordinary S10 bodyshell and installed a 4.3-liter V6 with a turbocharger producing 280 HP. They also used a special four-speed automatic they sourced from a Corvette and a performance-based all-wheel drive.
Although the power figures may not be impressive these days, the Syclone was able to sprint to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds. This made it faster than contemporary Ferraris. The key was its light weight, small dimensions, and torque from the turbocharged engine. Because the price was significantly higher than the regular model, GMC built less than 3,000 of them. Also, most of them come in the signature black color.
