3. Ford Mustang Boss 302

Produced for only two years, 1969 and 1970, Boss 302 featured 302 V8 engine which was conservatively rated at 290 hp. The real output was closer to 350 hp mark. The Boss 302 was a model intended for racing in Trans-Am championship and apart from blackout hood, spoiler on the trunk and other details, it featured stiff and track-tuned suspension, close ratio gearbox and high revving engine.

The car was pretty light and without any unnecessary luxuries. We chose this model because it was a perfectly balanced car with great performance and driving dynamics. It was a muscle car, obviously, but its handling characteristics, high revving engine, and overall feel made it a sports car with racing success.
