14. Dodge Challenger
This famous muscle car from the early ’70s got a new lease on life for the 21st century. It returned in perfect retro form with the legendary Hemi engine. They built it on a Chrysler 300 platform, so Challengers are relatively common and affordable. You can get a decent V8-powered model for less than $20,000.
However, the SRT and Hellcat versions are considerably more expensive. This big muscle coupe will provide plenty of excitement, strong acceleration and effortless cruising. For muscle car fans, this is the perfect solution, because the Challenger has a respectable performance. Also, it has a fantastic retro look that guarantees you will be noticed on the street.
