3. Ford Mustang Bullitt

The regular production Mustang GT is a capable and rewarding car, so Ford scored a hit when it introduced the current generation in 2015. The Performance Pack 2 and Shelby versions showed the real potential of the IRS-equipped platform. However, Ford decided to widen its appeal, and not by adding more power, but by adding even more style and a touch of myth.

The third Bullitt special edition is the 2019 model Ford based on the GT. This means the Bullitt Mustang has the same 5.0-liter V8 with 460 HP but only came as a six-speed manual. Also, the Bullitt has a unique paint job, wheels, and interior trim to copy the legendary 1968 Bullitt Mustang Steve McQueen drove in the car cult classic, Bullitt.

2. Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

Just when drivers thought Chevy had abandoned adding more power to the C7 Corvette and was concentrating on holding the already powerful car, Corvette creators surprised them with the insane 2019 Corvette ZR1. This version of the C7 Corvette has just been released.

It features an improved Z06 chassis, suspension, and drivetrain as well as an absolute beast of an engine. The 6.2-liter heavily supercharged LT4 engine pumps out 755 HP and 527 lb-ft of torque. It sends all that power to the rear wheels through an automatic or manual gearbox, making the Corvette ZR1 a beast for the streets.

1. 2020 Shelby GT500

It seems that every new generation of the Shelby GT500 pushes the envelope even further. Each model delivers so much power it’s hard to comprehend. Just look at the latest 2020 model. From the outside, it looks like a menacing Mustang with a new front fascia, scoops, spoilers, special paint, and carbon wheels. But the real surprise lies beneath the metal.

The massive 5.2-liter supercharged V8 engine delivers 760 HP and sends it to the rear wheels through an intelligent 10-speed automatic. This interesting combo makes the new GT500 the perfect combination of old-school muscle and modern technology. The result is even more astonishing. It takes just 3.3 seconds to get to 60 mph with a 180-mph top speed. Of course, such firepower comes with a hefty price tag. In this case, it costs almost $100,000 fully loaded. These are the top 21st century classics you can buy today. Which one was your favorite? Be sure to snap it up before prices soar.
