The 5 Fastest Muscle Cars

The smell of rubber burning and exhaust spewing, the scream of tires grinding against pavement and the crowd cheering on their favorite, and the heat and sweat of a summer night filled with adrenaline – that, my friend, is a drag race.

While everyone likes an exhilarating and exciting drag race, seeing no one in front of you when the checkered flag is flashed, holding the coveted trophy or just the having bragging rights shows you are the winner, you have the fastest car – everyone lusts for a taste of that!  That is why I bring you the Top 5 Fastest Muscle Cars according to Muscle Car Review Magazine, ranked based on their elapsed time on a quarter-mile track.

The Fastest Muscle Car of All Time

1966 Shelby Cobra 427There is one muscle car out there that has screamed down a drag strip, zipped around a race track and has had the checkered flag in front of them and a plethora of cars in its rear-view mirror.  This is the car that has been named the Fastest Muscle Car of All Time.   Some may think it’s the Mustang, others may argue that it’s a Camaro, and others may argue that it’s a Corvette, but they are all wrong.  The fastest car of all time is the Shelby Cobra 427.

On the rare occasion that any one of these 1970 vehicles is found today, it is cause for celebration among those who are passionate about classic American muscle cars. Part of what makes this car so special is the Yenko badge, but it is also the limited number of units made back in 1970 that makes it so rare today.
