People buy muscles cars not only for how they run, but for how they look. Owning a muscle car that looks old and rusted is missing the point. So if you are going to own a muscle car, you should take the opportunity to give it a good detailing. Give it a good washing including underneath and then apply a coat of wax.

Here are top hottest Muscle car around the world. Let's check it out.



1. 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302


The Mustang boss 302 is a high-performance variant of the Ford Mustang originally produced by Ford in 1969 and 1970, alongside its more powerful sibling the Boss 429 Mustang. Ford revived the model for another two year production run in 2012 and 2013. It was produced for the Trans Am racing series.




2. 1969 Dodge Charger R/T SE


This 1969 Dodge Charger R/T SE is a little different. "This was a survivor car, all original before the owner went to get it restored, and really not in bad shape," reports current keeper Louis Barrie, of West Hills, California. "It had never been hit, though there was some minor work, with little dings and such, that was primed. It was rust-free, it had the original black California plates, and other than the spot-priming here and there, it had the original paint.




3. 1970 Plymouth GTX 440 Six Pack


When introduced, the flashy GTX was the James Bond of the Plymouth line, meant to be a “gentleman’s” muscle car. It had the square-jawed looks of the Belvedere/Satellite line, but was dangerous when confronted, thanks to its standard 440 cubic inch V8 with 375 hp. Even with a minor redesign, the GTX had sales problems due to sharing many features with the Plymouth Roadrunner. Stylists made the lines smoother, and a “power bulge” hood was introduced, as well as non-functional rear brake air scoops. The convertible model was dropped in 1970. The Air Grabber hood was brought back, but instead of having two narrow openings running lengthwise as in 1969, it had one opening scoop located on the power bulge.




4. 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1


Most powerful. Quickest. Only one Chevy combines it all: the 1969 Chevrolet ZL1 Camaro. It went a step beyond the 427 Yenko and even the mighty L88 Corvette, to where few production muscle car trend. Drawing a bead on NHRA Super Stock drag classes, Chevy performance guru Vince Piggins authorized the factory to fit a batch of '69 Camaros with a version of the 427-cid V-8 used by the all-conquering Can-Am Chaparral. This actually was another of Piggins' Central Office Production Order projects, and like the COPO Chevelles and Camaros being built for '69, the ZL1 was technically a Camaro option package.




5. 1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator 428 Cobra Jet


In an effort to raise their muscle car profile, Mercury introduced the Cougar Eliminator in 1969. The Eliminator came with two engines, a 302 cubic inch small block and the coveted 428 cubic inch Cobra Jet big block. The engine produced 335 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. Even more power could be obtained through over the counter dealer parts, such as upgraded headers and dual-quad carburetors. Like Mustang, the Eliminator offered the 428 Cobra Jet with and without Ram Air, although the Eliminator didn’t use the shaker hood, it’s standard scoop was only functional when Ram Air was ordered. A blacked-out grille, side stripe, and front and rear spoilers enhanced the muscular look, and Mercury offered the Eliminator in blue, orange, and yellow exterior colors.




6. 1964 Pontiac GTO


The Pontiac GTO is a convertible/cabriolet with 2 doors and a front mounted engine which supplies the power through the rear wheels. The 6.4 litre engine is a naturally aspirated, overhead valve, 8 cylinder unit that has an output of 348 bhp (353 PS/260 kW) of power at 4900 rpm, and maximum torque of 580 N·m (428 lb·ft/59.1 kgm) at 3200 rpm. The engine drives the wheels via a 4 speed manual set of gears.




7. 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454


Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 Convertible 4-speed in 1972 the model with 2-door convertible body and V-8 7443 cm3 / 454.2 cui engine size, 201.5 kW / 274 PS / 270 hp (SAE net) of power, 4-speed manual powertrain offered since September 1971 for North America. This Chevrolet would accelerate 0-60 mph in 6.4 sec, 0-100 km/h in 6.8 sec and quarter mile time is 15 sec.




8. 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500-KR


The 1968 cars were renamed Shelby Mustang Cobra GT350/GT500/GT500KR, reflecting Ford’s recent use of the Cobra name in all of its performance vehicles and parts. The nose for the '68 Shelby was restyled, as it continued to resemeble the Ford Mustang with a more aggressive look. The front end treatment was again made of fiberglass and the grille opening carried either Lucas or Marchal foglamps. The hood now used twin front hood scoops along with a set of rear hood louvers.




9. 1970 AMC Rebel Machine


The Machine was a muscle car version of the AMC Rebel. The Machine featured a 390 cubic inch V8 engine with 340 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. It came with special heads, valve train, cam, as well as a redesigned intake and exhaust. This was the most powerful in any AMC vehicle while retaining features required for normal street operations, as well as components to assure outstanding performance characteristics without incurring high-unit cost penalties. The engine is fed by a 690-cfm Motorcraft 4-barrel carburetor, and pumped up a 10.0:1 compression requiring high-octane gasoline.




10. 1969 Yenko Camaro 427


The Yenko Camaro was a modified Chevrolet Camaro prepared by Yenko Chevrolet, under the supervision of Don Yenko. When the Camaro was first released, GM prevented them from having an engine larger than 6.6 liter, putting the Camaro at a disadvantage on the track. Don Yenko knew there was a market for a powerful Camaro and found a way around the limit. By installing a Corvette L-72 7.0 liter V8, the Camaro’s power was increased to 450 horsepower. Yenko added a fiberglass hood similar to the “Stinger” hood found on the Corvette. Initially the Yenko Camaro wasn’t allowed to race because it wasn’t built by Chevy.
