5. Camaro Z28
The Z28 nameplate is legendary among Camaro fans, and the legend lives on to this day with the best and fastest Z28 ever.
The Z28 can make the sprint from rest to 60 miles per hour in four seconds flat, and make the trip to a quarter-mile in 12.2
seconds, besting all but a few muscle cars on the market.
4. Camaro ZL1
The ZL1 – a 580 horsepower monster, which will leave many
bystanders slack-jawed in awe of its power (hopefully). The ZL1 is equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that knocks
out 556 pound-feet of torque along with all that horsepower and is capable of a terminal speed of 184 miles per hour.
3. Shelby GT 500
The ZL1 Camaro demonstrates the top of Chevy’s game, and the Shelby GT 500 Mustang showcases the best of Ford. The Shelby GT 500 has the ability to tackle the quarter mile in 11.5 seconds, and also rocket to 60 miles per hour from a standstill in 3.5 seconds. The Shelby tops out at 189 miles per hour behind the power of 662 horses and a monstrous 631 pound-feet of torque, all courtesy of a 5.8-liter supercharged V8 engine.
2. Equus Bass 770
One of the less-known muscle cars on the market, the Equus Bass 770 is about to change the world’s perception for good. Seemingly
a cross between a Mustang and a Challenger or Charger, the EquusBASS 770 brings serious speed and power to the table — for a price. Boasting a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, borrowed from a Corvette ZR1, the Bass 770 makes 640 horsepower and 605 pound-feet of torque, all the while reaching a speed of 60 miles per hour in just 3.4 seconds. As previously mentioned, it comes at a price –$250,000, to be exact.
1. Challenger SRT Hellcat
The new kid on the block is also the most formidable. The Challenger Hellcat — perhaps the most aptly named vehicle ever has quickly made a name for itself as the fastest production muscle car of all time. The Hellcat purrs out a hearty 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, which allows it to spring to 60 miles per hour in around 3.5 seconds on its way to an overall top speed of 199 miles per hour, putting it in a class with other supercars from Ferrari and Lamborghini.
