This is not my car, I'm maintaining this site for my friend!
Chris's 1998 SVT Contour. Toraredo Red with dark blue interior.
From SVT's website (www.svt.ford.com):
"The 1998 SVT Contour was designed to compete against European sports sedans costing thousands more. It was SVT's first front-wheel-drive and V6-powered offering. Based on the sporty '98 Contour SE, SVT added a large-capacity air cleaner, 34mm butterfly port throttles and unique pistons, as well as revised intake and exhaust camshafts, pushing horsepower from 160 to 190. The engine also benefited from Extrude Hone Powerflow? technology ? a process that improves airflow ? in the upper intake manifold and the cylinder heads? secondary intake ports. Other hardware upgrades included bigger brakes, performance tires and suspension tuning and a dual-outlet exhaust system. Unique front and rear fascias and a specially equipped leather interior helped set it apart from mainstream Contour models."
