There have been so many great Mustangs over the years, we couldn’t pick just one. So we cheated a little at our own game…
Here is a list of the Mustangs that have stood out to us.
2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0
Bringing back the 5.0 was always a good idea, but bringing it back as such an advanced engine was just brilliant. The new Mustang has taken everything Ford has learned about racing Mustangs, and incorporated it to make this the best GT Mustang ever. Now, there is no doubt that the Mustang can compare to the best there is in European GT’s.
2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca
The Laguna Seca Edition Mustang brings the already fantastic 5.0 Mustang and turns the volume to eleven. Made to be your track day, wet dream, this production Mustang is incredible.
2008 Ford Mustang Bullitt
Bringing the Bullitt style back with the new retro body style was a no-brainer, but the fact that Ford didn’t just make this car about looks is what sets it apart. Special designed exhaust to give you that old Bullitt soundtrack, better suspension, and more power from the 4.6 liter V8 is all what made this car jump out at us.
2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra “Terminator”
Underrated from Ford, the SVT engine that powered the Terminator Mustang was one of the best engines Ford made. So good, in fact, that others like Panoz used this power plant to power their cars. The great looks, unbelievable power, and cult following is what made this Mustang stand out and still one of the hottest buys.
The “Fox-Body” Mustang was said to deviate from the Mustang heritage, yet it’s still one of the first picks for drag racing teams who want a light weight body to pack lots of power under the hood.
All Shelby Mustangs deserve recognition, but the original GT350 and GT500 were some of the best looking Mustangs made. Aftermarket manufacturers still try to duplicate the look and feel of theses cars made way back in the 60’s. An original Shelby Mustang can sell in auction anywhere from $200,000 to over $500,000.
There are many other Mustangs that any car enthusiast would be happy to have under their tree, but in an effort to keep this short enough to get you back to your family at a decent hour this Christmas Eve, we’ll end it here.
