Tomas Crown Affair

Although the original movie from the late ’60s featured beach buggies and yellow Ferraris. The remake from the ’90s had a very interesting 1968 Shelby GT 350. In contrast to other similar cars, this Shelby got the off-road treatment with special tires, wide fenders, a roll bar, and a spare on the back. Even the lights on the top. Cool looking vehicle and is a contender for one of the coolest movie Mustangs ever featured on film (via Motor Junkie).

The 1968 Shelby GT350 is the entry-level Shelby model for that year. It featured an almost stock 302 V8 engine, a few performance add-ons, and that characteristic Shelby front and rear-end treatment.

Basic Instinct

The 1992 psychological thriller will be remembered for Sharon Stone’s performance and its car chase with a Lotus Espirit. But there is also the appearance of a dark red Mustang convertible driven by Michael Douglas. The car endures a lot of torture and perfectly fits the photography and feel of the movie (via IMCDB).

At that time, the Mustang was once again an affordable performance car with lots of options and enough power to spin the rear wheels in any gear. That is why we consider the 1988 to 1993 Mustang 5.0 GT as one of the best ’80 muscle cars. This car marked a return to the roots with a strong V8 engine and exciting performance. Also, the late ’80s Fox-body GT was very popular, so they’re plentiful today. Which makes them an excellent choice for entry-level collectors. On the other hand, the aftermarket for those cars is enormous, so you can modify and make your Fox-body GT even faster, easy, and cheap.

Proof that the Mustang is memorable, even if it is not the flashy modified car, Driver, a noir thriller featuring Ryan Gosling in a leading role. In this movie, Gosling is a driver for hire and drives a regular black 2011 GT model. However, the intense action, driving scenes, and cool production make a hero car from this ordinary-looking modern Mustang (via Jerry Garret).

A cool-looking redesign and a new engine marked the last years of the fifth-generation Ford Mustang. The genuinely modern 5.0-liter Coyote V8 was a world-class powerhouse that was the basis for almost all performance Mustangs of the era. In base trim, the 5.0 Coyote was capable of 412 hp and 390 lb-ft, which are respectable figures. You can get this engine in numerous versions, GT, GT Premium, California Special, and so on. And
