Powerful Efficiency: 20 Sporty Turbos

AutoNXT Logo By Evan Griffey of AutoNXT | Slide 1 of 21: As the most performance-oriented componentry under an automobile’s hood — other than the engine itself — turbochargers provide a direct connection to a driver’s adrenal gland. They function as exhaust-driven compressors that increase airflow into an engine where more fuel can be burned and more power generated. Turbos challenge the laws of physics by delivering skyrocketing power when pushed, but down-to-earth fuel efficiency when kept in cruise mode. Here are 20 cars using this formula for success . . . some merely have a sporty side, while others are no-holds-barred performance players.
