15. Shelby EXP 500 “Green Hornet”
During the heyday of the Mustang, Ford and Shelby worked hard to explore the possibilities and limits of its platform and engineering. In fact, together, they produced several interesting prototypes. But one of the most popular is the “Green Hornet” from 1968. Although it wasn’t the only car, the Green Hornet featured the most innovative features. They gave it a 390 V8 they equipped with fuel injection, unique disc brakes on all four wheels, and an independent rear suspension.
With this layout, the Green Hornet was a capable car that handled and stopped better than any other sports car on the market. In fact, the Green Hornet was no longer a muscle car, but a fully-capable sports coupe. Unfortunately, the cost of producing those features was too big, so Ford and Shelby decided to go with more conventional technology. Also, the Green Hornet is one of the rare surviving cars from the era. Also, it is possibly one of the most expensive Mustangs since they offered it for sale, but $1.8 million just wasn`t enough.
