Ford Sierra Cosworth. The first production car to have an engine that broke the magic 100bhp per Lt barrier. The YB engine was a derivative of the Pinto engine which powered cars from the Mk1 Escort & Transit van to the Ford Mustang. From Touring car Legend, including BTCC, DTM and Bathurst 1000, Rally legend to Monday morning commuter. A car that defined a generation.

But they are/were easily tuneable. There was no real requirement for 400bhp back in the day, when most hot hatches barely had 100bhp. Remember the fuss the Lotus Carlton created when it came along, what was that 370bhp? It was mentioned in the Houses of Parliament, where they wanted it banned lol.
