The Sport version of the Ford Taurus. SHO stands for Super High Output.
It is also known as "the ultimate sleeper", because no one would expect a 4 door family sedan to be able to put up a good race. Of course, back when the SHO was built, it wasn't all that common to see 15 second cars on the road, at least none that weren't expensive or heavily modified.
The SHO has made a reputation for itself, for having a very efficient Yamaha built 3.0L (89-95) (3.2L for Automatics) engine. With very little mods the SHO is capable of putting up a race against most corvettes of the day.
The SHO was discontinued in 1999 by Ford. Currently SHO enthusiasts are trying to convince Ford to bring back the Taurus SHO, now that the Taurus has been reintroduced into the market.
Remember to SHOfear
That ricer honda didn't expect to get smoked by a SHO.
If you want to hustle a good race, get a SHO, no one will expect a 4-door sedan to pull like a sports car!

A sporty version of the grocery-getter taurus. Introduced in 1989, it had a high revving 220hp 3.0 DOHC V6 made by Yamaha and a 5 speed transmission. 1992 the body style changed. In 1993 a bored version of the 3.0, the 3.2 with slightly more touque was released. Coupled to an automatic transmission. In 1996, bodystyle changed to the bubble look and so did the motor. It was now a 235hp 3.4 V8. But only with an auto trans. The motor wasn't as snappy as with a manual tran and is plagued with camshaft/sprocket problems. In 1999 the SHO was dropped.
My '89 SHO will still hand most ricers their ass.
Super High Output
Sub series of the midsize Taurus made by Ford. The SHO's engine was a 3.0 V6 built by Yamaha, with overhead-cam cylinder heads, four valves per cyllinder and dual exhausts.
The Taurus SHO included many refinements including......
-larger anti-roll bars
-std. anti-lock brakes
-15 inch aluminum wheels/special high speed v-rated tires
-body addons/'ground effects'
-integral fog lamps
The SHO was Ford's attempt to fight back against various European Sport Sedans which were becoming quite popular in the early/mid 1990's (as was the Lumina Euro/LTZ from Chevrolet).
