Additional information from a BAT presentation:
The idea of a relatively fuel-efficient and decently powerful
Mustang was still very appealing. While SVO considered using the
naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 available at the time, it opted to
go with a turbocharged and intercooled version of the 2.3-liter
inline-four from the Mustang II. How come?
For starters, the four-pot offered better weight distribution
because it was installed perpendicular to and behind the front
axle. The new computer-controlled fuel injection system was also a
deciding factor. All told, output came to 175 horsepower and 210
lb-ft of torque, though this later increased to an even 200 hp and
240 lb-ft thanks to a new water-cooling system. Power was sent to
the rear wheels through a five-speed manual gearbox. Compared to
non-SVO Mustangs, the team added a unique front grille and hood, a
biplane spoiler, and pinstriped taillights.
The sole interior color offered was charcoal grey. Premium features
(at the time) included standard air conditioning, power locks, and
windows, and upgraded stereo. An optional Competition Package
deleted some of these features to cut back on weight. A cool Hurst
shifter came as standard.
Additional performance aids included a unique suspension with
adjustable front struts and horizontal rear dampers. All told,
9,835 Mustangs SVOs were built in a three-year period.
