1982 Dodge PPG M4S Turbo Interceptor news, pictures, specifications, and information

The Dodge PPG M4S Turbocharged Interceptor played a starring role in the 1986 movie, 'The Wraith.' The M4S was designed to be a pace car on the PPG-CART Indy Car World Series racing circuit. Powering the car was a one-of-a-kind Chrysler 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine featuring a Cosworth 16-valve twin-cam head, dual turbos and Bosch fuel injection. The mid-engine car was capable of speeds reaching 194 mph. The original M4S, loaned by Dodge, was used for close-ups in the movie, while two more 'drivers,' detailed bodies on dune buggy chassis, were used for stunt driving. There were four other 'shells,' empty bodies on towable frames, that were sacrificed in crash scenes.

The 2.2-liter engine is capable of producing 440 horsepower and is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
