10. 2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra
Inspired by the wild SVT Cobra R’s from the 1990s, Ford didn’t name the 2003 model “R” since they didn’t limit it in production. In addition, it was available to the public and not just racing drivers or private teams. However, this SVT Cobra was an interesting and important model for the Mustang dynasty since it featured two firsts. One was the first factory supercharged engine and the other was the first independent rear suspension. The SVT took the standard 4.6-liter block and mounted different heads and supercharger to get 390 HP and 390 lb-ft of torque output. The engine was named the Terminator and it was rumored to deliver more than the advertised 390 HP.
To handle all that power and torque, Ford equipped the SVT Cobra with an independent rear suspension setup similar to the first Ford GT. This helped stability at high speeds and hard launches, making this Mustang handle like a dream. The 0 to 60 mph time took only 4.7 seconds, so the SVT Cobra was a drag-strip terror. Ford offered this model in 2003 and 2004. They built around 20,000 of them in coupe and convertible form. Despite being almost 15 years old, those cars still hold high prices on the used car market.
