Which is the best muscle car?
The muscle-car market has grown considerably in recent years, and that’s in terms of both volume and horsepower. Consider: As regards that last measure, the current King of the Beasts—the Ford Shelby GT500—now packs 662 hp, making it the most powerful production V8 in the world. In this kind of environment, it’s no surprise that Autobytel readers split their votes fairly evenly between the modern-day versions of the Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger and Chevy Camaro. On the other hand, with the very definition of “muscle car” also expanding, it wasn’t any one of that trio that actually won today’s poll. Instead, it was the Nissan GT-R, which makes “only” 545 hp and gets that out of a twin-turbo V6 instead of a V8.
