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.
