2. Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe
Ford Thunderbird isn’t the car you would normally consider a muscle car but in the `80s, Ford introduced a couple of Thunderbirds which could have that designation and were an interesting addition to the performance car scene in those days. Although the T-bird was available with a V8 engine, the best performing version was, in fact, the Turbo Coupe, introduced in 1985.
The TC received a Mustang SVO, 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a manual transmission, 190 HP power level and a top speed of whopping 143 mph. The top speed was affected by the relative lightness of the car and aerodynamic shape of the ninth generation Thunderbird.
