Supercharged means a car has a supercharger.

A supercharger is very basically an air pump. They are normally crankshaft driven via belt, but sometines a chain or gear drive is used. The supercharger forces more air into the induction side of the engine. More air means more oxygen. More oxygen means you can support combustion of more fuel. More combustion means more power.

Simple, huh?
