15. 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351
When the 1971 Boss 351 debuted, Car & Driver mourned the fact that it felt like more of street car rather than a track star. But drivers of the Boss weren’t disappointed in its 351-cubic-inch V8, which cranked out 330 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque. Not everyone loved the car’s new look, but performance-wise, it delivered, running from zero to 60 in 5.8 seconds and the quarter-mile in 14.1 seconds at 100.6 miles per hour — numbers that still make it one of the fastest of all time.
