29. Shelby GT350R
The Shelby GT350R is a pure sports car that delivers fantastic driving dynamics. It’s much closer to Porsche GT3 in terms of precision driving and cornering speeds than it is to humble Mustangs of yesteryear. This car is not only one of the fastest Mustangs ever but also one of the best sports cars in recent years (via Supercars).
The main feature of this high-revving powerplant is the flat-plane crank technology, which allows the big V8 to scream to almost 9,000 rpm. It’s the same technology that exotic manufacturers like Ferrari use, but this was the first time a muscle car had such an advanced engine. Ford’s investment into the Shelby GT350R paid off in the form of a mind-boggling 3.9-second 0 to 60 mph time.
