Big loud, and rude – there is something about its haughty spirit that makes it on the top list of classic cars of all time.

We have rounded up the top 10 muscle cars that have been lifelong obsessions for big boys out there.


1970 Buick GSX

It even surpasses the impressive features of the Buick GS 455 burly coupe. Although known to possess 360 horsepower and an immense 510 lb-ft of torque, it looks like it can deliver much more than that. White or yellow are its standard hue, both with the trademark racing stripes.


1968 Pontiac Firebird Coupe

It is still one of the best all-around muscle cars (regardless of its tainted reputation due to the 1980s painted-hood versions and bland ‘90s models) simply because of its roaring 400-cubic-inch V8 good for 335 horsepower.


1969 Dodge Charger

The R/T was its butt-kicking pride with its standard 440 Magnum under the hood rocking a solid 375 horsepower. The 426 Hemi is a supreme being with an unimaginable 425 horsepower.


1970 Boss 302 Mustang

Its V8 engine can fire up from 0 to 60 mph in just under seven seconds, which earns it the respect of any sensible muscle car fanatic. It is a certified Trans Am road-racing contender and the elite of all muscle cars out there.


1965 Pontiac GTO

With 335 horsepower capability for its 389-cubic-inch engine, it can conquer 60 mph in less than six seconds. But it will test you to your limit because it is such a handful to control.


1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda

One will not question its voluminous weight distribution when its 425 horsepower enables it to close the gap on a quarter-mile lane in just less than 13 seconds. Compact yet aggressive. Makes you want to join car contests if this is the ultimate prize.


1970 Chevelle 454 SS

It reigns as the highest-output production car of all times because of its 454-cubic-inch engine and an LS6 upgrade with 450 ponies to boast for. Its overbearing aura is the reason why it is still among the best muscle cars in the world.


1969 Z28 Chevy Camaro

Its 302-cubic-inch engine and 290 horsepower rate might not be as impressive as the other muscle cars on the streets but its overall package and fierce attitude still won’t leave you wanting.


1966 Shelby Cobra 427

It is not an authentic American muscle car but its hulking Ford 427 engine makes it a monster racer. Even hardcore fanatics will go google-eye with this lightweight roadster.


1967 Shelby Mustang GT500

If you have a more seasoned yet edgier sense for high performance muscle cars, the GT500 is your best bet. Its big-block power came from its 428-cubic-inch Police Interceptor engine with an underrated 355 horsepower. A road-racing champ like no other.
