Today's Camaro, Challenger, Mustang: The Greatest Muscle Cars In History

Video

So says Hennessey and Musto. It's hard to disagree.

Full disclosure: Each of the three muscle cars shown and discussed in this video are top-of-the-line, meaning they’re not base models. And with the sole exception of one, the other two are bone stock. John Hennessey looks to be about ready to shoot some gnarly drag races between a new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 LE and his own personal Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R. Just one thing about the latter: it’s recently been supercharged because, well, that’s what guys like Hennessey do: add more power just because.

While we wait for the eventual drag races and quarter-mile drag strip times for both, The House of Muscle host, Mike Musto, just so happened to be passing through the Lone Star State on a cross-country road trip in a Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody. Of course there had to be some gearhead talk, and the two quickly and correctly come to this conclusion:

Today is the best time ever for super muscle cars. Yes, even better than the late 60s and early 70s. And yes, those original muscle cars were (and still are) brilliant machines. However, they’re not exactly refined. They’re not good for day-to-day driving. Even with 707 hp on tap (again, bone stock), the Challenger Hellcat is also meant to be driven daily. Heck, it’s the best of the three here for a long road trip. But having these three absolutely wonderful and insanely powerful modern muscle cars all together for a video shoot with two industry experts and horsepower fanatics is pretty cool.
