ISO 3166-1 numeric – three-digit country codes which are identical to those developed and maintained by the United Nations Statistics Division, with the advantage of script independence, hence useful for people or systems using non-Latin scripts.

See Special Vehicle OperationsSpecial Vehicle Team known as SVT, is an arm of Ford Motor Company responsible for the development of the company's highest-performance vehicles. SVT is the successor to the SVO division; the current SVT Director is Hermann Salenbauch. SVT was led by Hau Thai-Tang and John Coletti; the group produces specially tuned versions of Ford production vehicles such as the 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor, based on the Ford F150. However, they do develop models independently of the rest of the company, namely the GT supercar. SVT was founded in 1983 by John Plant of Ford Marketing, Janine Bay of Ford Mustang Program Management, Robert Burnham of Ford Truck Program Management. Known as Special Vehicle Operations, SVO developed the 1984–1986 2.3-liter turbo-charged 4-cylinder Mustang SVO, as well as marketed performance parts through dealer networks. Ford SVT debuted the 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor high-performance off-road truck; the Raptor is the only high-speed off-road performance truck offered by any OEM.
Using a re-designed suspension, with internal-bypass Fox Racing Shox and specially developed BF Goodrich all-terrain 35" tires, the Raptor is considered an OEM-style "pre-runner." Pre-runners are reconnaissance vehicles used for high-speed testing of off-road race courses before a race. F-150 SVT Raptor debuted the all-new 6.2-liter V8 engine as an option for the 2010 model year. Ford reports horsepower and torque as 411 hp @ 5500 rpm, 434 lb·ft @ 4500 rpm in the Raptor. All Raptor models will have a 6-speed automatic transmission, selectable 4WD, rear E-Locker that stays engaged at high-speeds. Speculation suggests that as a result of Ford's plan to globalize their vehicles, SVT and the European RS division will merge, thus aligning all American and European performance vehicle activity together. SVT is credited in the following vehicles: 1993 SVT Cobra 1993 SVT Cobra R 1993-1995 Ford SVT Lightning 1994-1995 SVT Cobra 1995 SVT Cobra R 1995 Ford GT90 1996 SVT Explorer 1996-1998 SVT Cobra 1998-2000 SVT Contour 1999-2001 SVT Cobra 2000 SVT Cobra R 1999-2004 Ford SVT Lightning 2003-2004 SVT Cobra 2002-2004 SVT Focus 2005–2006 Ford GT 2010–2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, 2007-2014 SVT/Shelby GT500 Ford TeamRS, Ford's European performance car and motorsport division Ford Performance Vehicles, Ford Australia's performance car division Official Ford Racing website Official Ford SVT collector cars
