Design quirks and oddities
- The Turbo Interceptor driven by Charlie Sheen in the movie The Wraith was the Dodge M4S concept car, which cost an estimated $1,500,000.
- The Dodge M4S was powered by a Mopar 2.2 Inline "Trans" four cylinder engine (also used in the Dodge Daytona, Dodge Aries, etc.), with a Cosworth 16-valve, twin-cam cylinder head that produced over 400 horsepower thanks to twin Garrett T25 turbochargers.
- The abbreviation M4S stood for Midengine, 4 cylinder, Sport. The original car was built by Dodge and PPG industries to be used as a Pace Car for sprint racing venues.
- 6 prop cars were built, 4 of which were dummies and destroyed during filming. The other two were the stunt cars. One is currently being restored at http://www.thewraithcar.com.
