7. Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
The swan song of those SVT supercharged Mustangs is this 2013 Shelby GT500. This glorious muscle car had a 5.8-liter supercharged V8 pumping out 662 HP and 631 lb-ft of torque. At the time, this was the most powerful American-made V8 and a proper beast of an engine. When Ford installed it in RWD, the live axle platform was infamous as a tire smoke generator.
But besides its burnout and show potential, it was also a serious performance machine. In fact, a 0 to 60 mph sprint took only 3.5 seconds, so the $50,000 Mustang could embarrass a $250,000 Ferrari at any stoplight drag race. Buyers loved this overpowered Mustang, so despite being discontinued, it’s still the king of the hill among Mustang fans.
