The Best Muscle Cars Then and Now – What Ranks Highest In 2020?

The long-gone golden era of the best muscle cars is a faint memory these days. One of those charming memories that sends quivers down our spines and warms our revhead hearts at the same time. While the muscle cars of today aren`t nearly as well-known as their distant ancestors from the 1960s and 1970s, at least they`re still about. As well as being straight line performers, most modern muscle cars these days have progressed into more than dexterous sports cars while also possessing greater-than-ever horsepower ratings – all at once.

Of all the trademark muscle brands, however, only one or two have remained. A triad of pony cars from the “Bug Three” together with the Charger sedan.

So, without further ado, we`ve pulled together a list of the best muscle cars for 2020 motorheads, boasting the biggest horsepower and the latest technology.

Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

The ultimate muscle car from Chevrolet is the ZL1, which combines the raw power of a 6.2-litre LT4 V8 with a whole host of performance-boosting technologies to deliver the most powerful production Camaro yet. You can purchase a Camaro in Europe, but unlike the Mustang, it`s a left-hand drive only and definitely something of a niche product.

At the core of this beast lies a track-ruling supercharged 6.2-litre LT4 V8, boasting 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.

To help you convert that unprocessed power into precision, performance technologies such as eLSD and Magnetic Ride Control™ help strengthen the driving experience while slashing time from your laps. What`s more, the on-hand 10-speed paddle-shift automatic will ensure you benefit from almost immediate shifts for ultimate performance.

Ford Mustang GT

This awesome muscle car from Ford is the ultimate flagship sports car, with eye-catching, contemporary looks that manage to combine a few nostalgic touches making it immediately distinguishable as a Mustang.

Currently, the sixth-generation Mustang is available as a fabric-roofed convertible or Fastback, on hand in either 2.3-litre EcoBoost or 5.0-litre V8 GT form.
