Ranking The Coolest Ford Mustangs Ever Made

1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

It was the very first GT350 to offer 329 lb-foot of torque and would top out at 6000 RPM.

Equipped with a beastly 306-hp V8, the 1967 Shelby GT350 is one of the coolest Ford Mustangs to ever hit the market.

2012 Mustang Boss 302

The 2012 Mustang Boss 302 was part of the 5th generation Mustang and came with a 5.0L V8 engine that could output up to 444 hp.

Its MSRP was completely justified as you got all these specs at the price of $40,000.

1967 Mustang Shelby GT500

You may remember this car from the Gone In 60 Seconds remake, although Eleanor was modified to produce 790 hp.

The original GT500 was offered with various engine choices ranging from a 2.8-liter inline-6 to a 4.3-liter Windsor V8. The 1967 GT500 took things to a different level by outputting 355 hp.

1968 Ford Mustang 428 Cobra Jet

With only 1,299 cars having been built by Ford, this is considered one of the coolest and rarest Mustangs on the market.

Packing a powerful enough engine to output 335 hp, the 428 Cobra Jet was a fairly affordable car with an original listing price of around $3,400.

2021 Mustang Fastback GT

The 2021 Mustang Fastback GT is a power not to be reckoned with. The sports car has a limited top speed of 155 mph and a 0-60 time of just 5.2 seconds.

It may come in various colors, but we think the bright orange does it justice more than any other.

2013 Shelby GT500

This is faster than any GT500 that followed it, and this model was significantly cheaper than its successors, too, with an MSRP of just $55,000.

With a total of 4,885 produced, this may not be the rarest Mustang out there, but it sure is one of the craziest. This beast's engine produced 662 hp and 631 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to reach a top speed of over 200 mph along with a 0-60 of just 3.5 seconds.

1964 ½ Mustang

The very first Pony car to hit the American car market, the 1964 Mustang came with a 4-speed manual transmission, a top speed of 110mph, and a 0-60 time of 8.2 seconds.

Ford's original plan was to produce a car for young drivers who loved speed and style, but the car attracted drivers of all ages.

1980 Mustang M81 McLaren

The cool factor here comes from sheer rarity. The original plan was to create 250 M81s, but in the end, only 10 were built making this Mustang one of the coolest and rarest McLarens to hit the market.

Its specs? Nothing too crazy, a top speed of 95 mph and a 0-60 time of 9.76 seconds.

2016 Shelby GT350R

Lighter and more agile than its street-going counterpart, the GT350R is a true beast on the track. It's easily the best-performing GT350 ever built, and it's naturally one of the rarest.

It features a 190-mph top speed thanks to its 526-hp V8, along with a 4.3-second 0-60 time.

1969 Boss 429 Mustang

Whether it's the ridiculous performance, the muscular and overstated looks, or the fact that only 859 units hit the market, we find the 1969 Boss 429 to be the coolest Mustang to be ever created.

Despite being rated at 375 hp, the car could realistically push 500 hp, which for 1969 was simply outstanding. It could go 0-60 in 7.1 seconds and could reach a top speed of 118 mph.
