The name Carroll Shelby is synonymous with performance cars, so as power became important again in the 1980s, he was called upon by Chrysler to inject some life into the rather lame Charger range of 1986 and 1987, which were by then devoid of a V8 and rear-wheel drive in favor of a four-cylinder and front-wheel drive, thus leaving them in direct competition with the compact imports. Shelby took the 146bhp (109kW) engine and added an air-to-air intercooler to the turbo plus equal-length intake runners. Koni shocks were fitted at each corner with lowering springs, and alloys with low-profiles were added for improved handling. The owner of this car has gone a step further with the engine by changing the pistons, strengthening the rotating assembly, gas-flowing the head and adding loin extra injectors. Power is sufficient to give 13-second quarter-miles times.
