Top 10 Best American Muscle Cars Have Been Driving The American Youth Crazy For A Long Time.

Dubbed the symbol of the “Muscle car”, AMC AMX, Chevelle SS or SRT Demon has been driving American youth crazy for a long time.



An underrated brand compared to the Big Three from Detroit, but American Motors Corporation still has outstanding cars, including AMX. Instead of standard production, AMC shortened the distance between the axles to form a 2-seater model. The AMX is quite powerful when equipped with a 6.4-liter V8 engine. The AMX was a long-time bestseller until it disappeared completely in 1980.

Buick GNX:


In 1980, when the days of Muscle cars were over, Buick was still able to keep them alive. Replacing the V6 engine with a 3.8-liter V8s, the Buick Grand National X was one of the fastest cars of its time. The 276 hp engine with nearly 500 Nm of torque helps the GNX reach a speed of more than 180 km / h, faster than the Ferrari F40.

Chevrolet Chevelle SS:


Super Sport (SS) versions of Chevy began to appear at the height of the truck industry. In which, the car that made the biggest buzz was the Chevelle SS. Launched in 1970, the Chevelle SS 454 with a 7.2-liter V8 engine is considered the quintessence of “muscle” cars. However, by the late 70s, emissions standards were gradually putting this muscle in the past.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06: 


Corvette looks more like a sports car than “muscle”. Corvette Z06 owns a 650 hp V8 engine with a capacity of 6.2 liters and a torque of 900 Nm. The car can change the speed from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds. Z06 is designed with a frame enough to balance the engine as well as create stable performance.

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: 


SRT Demon is considered a car from another planet. While manufacturers focus on creating cars for on-road use, Dogge applies strict regulations to have an off-road product. The Demon can reach a speed of nearly 230 km / h thanks to the Hemi V8 808 horsepower engine with a capacity of 6.2 liters. Demon has the style of a racing car, supported by a “brake brake” system that locks the transmission while at the starting line for better acceleration.

Dodge Charger 2: 


Released in 1966, the Dodge Charger is a sleek model that exists as a 4-door sedan. Appearing in blockbuster movies, the Charger became the car most known to Americans. Owning a V8 helps it keep pace with Ford and GM models on the road.

Ford Mustang Boss 302: 


When it first appeared, “muscular” cars often appeared in racing tournaments like NASCAR or dirt roads. Knowing this, Ford brings a “weapon” named Boss 302 with a 302 cid Hi-Po engine, 5.0 liter capacity, Boss is a product exclusively for SCCA Trans Am racing team. In 2011, Ford released a limited edition commemorative edition of the Boss 302.

Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R: 


Inspired by the 1960 model of the same name, Ford launched the Shelby GT350 in 2015 along with an upgraded version of the “R”. Both are powered by a 5.2-liter V8 engine, but the GT350R stands out with its carbon fiber wheels and is lighter in weight. While most cars rely on electronic components to increase performance, the GT350R depends on mechanics and the driver.

Plymouth Road Runner: 


During the development of the truck engine, Plymouth found its opportunity when deciding to develop this car in the traditional direction. Road Runner is no different from regular cars other than owning Chrysler’s 7.0-liter Hemi V8 engine. The car has a design that feels like it is inspired by cartoons. Today, the Road Runner and the Plymouth brand are gone.

Pontiac GTO: 

The traditional “muscle” car Pontiac GTO was the first model with a good engine and a reasonable price. In 1964, Pontiac put a 6.4-liter V8 engine into their Tempest line, bypassing all size restrictions imposed on conventional cars. Later on, the design of the GTO became more refined but still had to disappear from the market when it could not compete with Ford, Chrysler and AMC.
