The Fastest American Cars Ever Produced

The Fastest American Cars Ever Produced

America is currently home to the world’s fastest production car

While most people might automatically assume some of the fastest cars ever made are from Europe or Japan, that simply isn’t the case because you’ve got some pretty serious speed machines conceived right here in America. This list is comprised of cars from both mainstream automakers and boutique manufacturers who produce just a handful of super-exotics per year. Spoiler: The fastest American car also happens to be the world’s fastest production car currently!

This 1966 Ford Mustang is Powered by Honda - Sacrilege Or Pure Genius?

This 1966 Ford Mustang is Powered by Honda - Sacrilege Or Pure Genius?

The fastest 1966 Ford Mustang is an epic, 600-horsepower mash-up of Honda and Nissan hardware

There are certain things in the automotive world that are generally accepted and others that are a no-go. A good example would be putting a Chevy LS engine in a Mazda RX-7. The one shown on That Racing Channel, however, has a bit of a Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift vibe to it, because it features one of the most popular engine swaps in one of the most unlikely places – a 1966 Ford Mustang.

The 2023 Nissan Z Finally Shows What It Can Do Against Its Competitors

We finally see how the manual and automatic Nissan Z perform against each other and their direct competitors

With the Nissan Z about to go on sale, the Japanese company finally handed out press cars in order for us to find out how it stacks up to its competitors. Hagerty was lucky enough to get two cars – a manual and an automatic - and pit them not just against one another, but against a GR Supra, a Mustang Mach 1, and as a bonus, a 2010 Aston Martin V-8 Vantage. The results are as much surprising as they are not.

Hoonigan Puts Two Fast & Furious Homage Cars On The Dyno To See What Power They Make

Hoonigan Puts Two Fast & Furious Homage Cars On The Dyno To See What Power They Make

The dyno battle is the precursor to an epic, Fast & Furious-inspired drag race between a Ford F-150 "Frightening" and a Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

Hoonigan shows some love for the original Fast & Furious movie by hosting a "Dyno war" at throtl’s dyno where two cars, inspired by the 2001 Fast & Furious movie, put down some epic numbers, worthy of the franchise. Hoonigan brings their Ford F-150 "Frightening", which is a parts bin special with a 2JZ swap while throtl brings out a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX, modified to look like Brian O’Conner’s original car. This one, however, is the real deal, so it should be interesting to see what power it makes. Hopefully, no "danger to manifold" signs pop up.

This 1,700-HP Foxbody Is The Rowdiest 1993 Mustang Cobra R You Have Ever Seen

What started out as a 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra was turned into a tire-smoking, drag strip weapon

A 1993 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R is something of a collector’s car, which is why seeing heavily-modified examples like this one, is quite rare. However, the horsepower junkies at Addiction Motorsports don’t care about collecting cars, which is why they’ve turned the red ’93 Cobra into a one-of-a-kind, 1,700-horsepower dragstrip-slaying Foxbody Cobra.

Once salvaged from a roll-over accident, this 1977 Ford F-100 was turned into a V-8-powered thrill machine that loves to go airborne

AutotopiaLA is back with what is, arguably, the most outrageous build on the channel – a 1977 Ford F-100 Pre-Runner. What makes this truck special is not only the fact that it survived a roll-over accident, but also that it is a V-8-powered, street-legal trophy truck that loves to hang in the air.

Fox-Body Mustang SVO Vs Fox-Body Mustang Cobra R: How Much Horsepower Do They Really Make

These dyno tests of a 1986 Mustang SVO and a 1993 Mustang SVT Cobra R reveal their true horsepower figures, and one of them packs way more power than advertised

Knowing how much power a car makes is a good starting point, especially in times when carmakers seem to be throwing random or approximate numbers. Ford, among others, is a manufacturer known to underrate their high-performance vehicles, and Late Model Restoration helps us find the truth. We have talked about them previously when they tested a high-mileage Shelby GT500. Now, they are dyno-testing two very different versions of the Fox-Body Mustang – a 1986 SVO and a 1993 Cobra R. Here’s how much power they actually make.

YouTube channel, Officially Gassed, answers the question by bringing two Ford Mustang GTs that make similar power with two very different setups, based on the 5.0-liter V-8.

The 1969 Ford Mustang "Anvil" From Fast And Furious 6 Is Alive And Looks Gorgeous

Remember the Fast 6 Ford Mustang that got crushed by a tank? Well, it’s alive and kicking with all its 805 horsepower

When it comes to classic American muscle cars, the Ford Mustang is among the most iconic names in the history of fast American cars. The Mustang, like other iconic muscle cars, has been immortalized in cinema, and you may remember this particular example from the Fast 6. The 1969 Ford Mustang “Anvil” may be a movie star, but it’s not an “all-show, no-go” situation like with many movie cars. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

Probably The Most Bonkers Hoonigan Drag Race Ever: 573 CID Chevy K5 Jimmy Vs 2JZ Ford F-150 "Frightening"

Probably The Most Bonkers Hoonigan Drag Race Ever: 573 CID Chevy K5 Jimmy Vs 2JZ Ford F-150 "Frightening"

Hoonigan’s 2JZ-powered Ford F-150 "Frightening" from Fast & Furious races a nasty-sounding Big Block Chevy K5; headphone users, beware!

To say Hoonigan’s drag races are epic is an understatement. For a while, we have been seeing some of the most insane showdowns with some of the weirdest builds ever, but this one takes things even further. It may look like a classic Ford versus Chevrolet duel, but there’s a twist. Hoongan’s very own homage to the Fast & Furious, Ford F-150 Lightning, driven by Paul Walker goes up against an all-American, insanely loud Chevy K5 Jimmy Big Block V-8.

Ford GT40 by Ruffian Cars Is An Homage To The 1966 Ford GT

Ford GT40 by Ruffian Cars Is An Homage To The 1966 Ford GT

The Ruffian 40 will blow you away with attention to detail, performance, and an epic V-8 soundtrack

Modern performance cars have a tough job replicating the feel and presence of iconic models, a case in point being the Ford GT40. Ford, itself, has been trying to come up with a proper successor for about half a century before coming up with the 2005 Ford GT and later the 2017 Ford GT. Chris from “Ruffian Cars”, however, may have come up with the best homage to the 1960s legend, with his 1966 Ford GT40-inspired, all-carbon-fiber, wide-body creation, presented by AutoTopiaLA.

Watch This Naturally Aspirated Mercedes-AMG Car Smash The Supercharged Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

The Shelby GT500 with a supercharged engine and 750+ horses couldn’t keep up with this naturally aspirated AMG

‘Carwow’ uploaded another drag race video on its YouTube channel, this time involving two very unlikely competitors – a 2013 Mercedes-AMG SLS Black Series versus the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.These two are completely different animals – one being a classy luxury car with drool-worthy gullwing doors, and the other a raw muscle car that loves being the alpha male. One comes with a naturally aspirated engine, and the other with a supercharged mill that puts out north of 750 horses. Where are you putting your money?

Watch The Ford Fusion Sport Destroy a Dodge Charger On The Drag Strip

Watch The Ford Fusion Sport Destroy a Dodge Charger On The Drag Strip

This race proves that a Dodge Charger without a Hemi V-8 isn’t worth much on a drag strip. Especially, when it races a turbocharged, AWD Ford Fusion Sport

It’s always interesting to see how two stock or mildly modified vehicles stack up against one another in a drag race. Our fellow Canadian car enthusiast, Sam CarLegion has gathered two entry-level sedans with V-6 engines in order to find out who’s quickest. We have a Dodge Charger on one side and a Ford Fusion on the other. Both vehicles have all-wheel drive and V-6 engines, but that’s where the similarities end.

Drag Battle: Kia Stinger GT With a Tune Messes With a ROUSH Ford Mustang GT

The Kia Stinger GT is surprisingly capable with only a tune, but a 750-horsepower, ROUSH Ford Mustang GT has something to say about it

When the Kia Stinger came out in 2017, it changed many people’s perceptions of the Korean brand. It also turned out to be a very quick car that responds very well to minor modifications. With this in mind, YoUTube channel Sam CarLegion has arranged for a tuned Kia Stinger GT to show up on the drag strip. However, it’s not going to run by itself, as it is joined by a ROUSH-modified Ford Mustang GT.
