31. Nissan Skyline GT-R R35

The R35 Skyline GT-R is a car which doesn’t need special introduction. One of the fastest, most capable and best handling sports cars you can buy is globally famous for its sublime characteristics and performance. The biggest part of its appeal is the engine and the Skyline has signature turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 which delivers 570 HP or 600 in NISMO trim. In combination with intelligent all-wheel drive, the GT-R can achieve 60 mph in less than 3 seconds!

32. Mercedes AMG GT

Mercedes wanted to attack Porsche 911 for a long time. That is why AMG presented the GT, a 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 powered coupe or roadster which has better performance, more power and higher top speed than most 911 versions. With fantastic driving dynamics and several versions, the AMG GT is not only a very successful sports car, but also a championship winning race car in AMG GT3 version.

33. Bentley Continental GT

One of the most interesting turbocharged engines currently in production is the incredible 6.0-liter W12 from Bentley Continental GT. Delivering 635 HP and insane 664 lb-ft of torque, this engine is a true monster and also extremely smooth. There is no turbo lag and torque is delivered immediately. The rest of the car is equally fantastic and we can say that matching this unique power plant with an exquisite car like Continental GT is a match made in heaven.

34. Fiat 500 Abarth

Despite the fact that the 500 Abarth has only 160 HP from its tiny turbocharged 1.4-liter engine, it is a seriously fast and fun little car due to its small weight and compact dimensions. Also, it is extremely practical in everyday driving, easy to park as well, and the package is completed with small price and running costs. For enthusiasts on the budget and irresistible need for speed, this small but wicked car could be the answer.

35. GMC Syclone

GM took an ordinary S10 body shell, installed a 4.3-liter V6 with a turbocharger, good for 280 hp, special 4-speed automatic sourced from a Corvette and performance biased all-wheel drive. The power figures don’t sound much these days, but the Syclone was able to sprint to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds which made it faster than contemporary Ferraris. The key was light weight, small dimensions and lots of torque from that turbocharged engine.

These are the 35 greatest turbocharged cars ever made. You may have recognized some of them, but hopefully, some surprised you. You may have some new models to add to your ultimate turbocharged car wish list.
