Which one of these three classic American rides is the Best and which one is the Fastest from 0-60 MPH?
The 1970s and 1960s were truly good days for the American automobile industry with popular brands such as Pontiac, Ford, and Chevy among others ruling the street and the race track. However, there is a new breed of super-fast muscle cars from the 2010s that are irresistible. Here they are;
2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – 204 Mph
With a 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, this four-door sedan is currently ruling the streets with an impressive 0-60 of 3.4. Thanks to its aerodynamic nature, this machine is both fuel efficient and very fast.
2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat
Termed as the most powerful production muscle car of all time, this machine packs an impressive 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. This allows it to sprint from 0 to 60 in 3.5 topping at 199 mph.
2014 Shelby GT500
This is a brutally fast car packing 662 horsepower and 631-pound feet of torque. This machine can do 0 – 60 in 3.5. Its sleek monster design is also impressive.
2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – 195 Mph
As the baddest of the Camaro lineup, this beat looking machine packs 650 horsepower and 650-pound feet of torque.
2015 Equus Bass 770
This rare hand built machine is a blend of all that makes a muscle car great. It makes 0 to 60 in 3.4 packing 640 horsepower and 605-pound feet of torque. Only 250 have been made.
Who doesn't love the Mustang? It's gone from being an American icon, heavy on the cheese, to a truly global and genuinely sophisticated sports car, available in factory built right-hand drive for the first time.

It’s not clear what someone’s talking about when they say ‘classic cars’. Everyone has their own definition, their own set of criteria, their own ideas about what makes a car ‘classic’. Some people have a very fluid rationale, using the word ‘classic’ to refer to a wider range of interesting cars that aren’t being built anymore. Others are more comfortable with a specific meaning of the word, like the reader who wrote into us yesterday saying that to qualify as classic the car must be “a post-WWII, pre-1980 model of technical or nostalgic merit”.

Callaway fans, rejoice. The latest from the performance house is well underway with the Callaway SC740 package for the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
