7. 2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500
The first Mustang to wear the Shelby name in almost 40 years was the 2007 model. The SVT department conceived it. These were the same folks who delivered the Cobra R models, but the 2007 Shelby GT 500 was something else. It looked mean, had an aggressive design with multiple upgrades, and it also sounded terrifying thanks to the new 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine with 500 HP and 480 lb-ft of torque. This was the first production Mustang that broke the magic 500 HP barrier and the most powerful muscle car at that time.
With racing stripes on the hood, roof, and trunk, four exhaust pipes, and a scary rumble coming from the massive V8, the 2007 Shelby GT 500 would make Carroll Shelby proud. In addition, the performance was amazing, so the 0 to 60 mph time took only 4.5 seconds. Some experts think this car probably could do better, but the massive torque burned the rear tires if you pushed the pedal too hard.
