Muscle Cars You've Never Heard Of

We all know the classic muscle cars- the GTOs, Mustangs, Camaros- but here are some that you probably do not know.

De Tomaso Pantera

The car is Italian, but under the hood is all Detroit. With a 330-hp Ford 351 V8, this muscle car looks like a Ferrari or Lamborghini, but roars like a grizzly.

Oldsmobile F-85

The F-85 was the first turbocharged V8 in a production vehicle, beating the GTO to market in 1962. Because the engine's compression ratio was 10:1, drivers had to use a mixture of water and alcohol to keep it from igniting. How muscle is that?

AMC Javelin

The AMC Javelin is largely forgotten, though its 325-hp 6.4-liter V8 engine could compete with the more recognized muscle cars of its time. This one is a true beauty.

Mercury Marauder X-100

A 360-hp 429 V8 powered Mercury's flagship sedan of 1969 and 1970. It combined luxury with muscle power in a unique and beautiful way. Weighing two tons (and more with options), it is amazing that its top speed was 126 mph.

Buick Riviera

Deemed too extreme by Cadillac, Buick picked up the model to be known as Riviera in 1963. Rivaling the Ford Thunderbird, the Riviera had a low curb weight that made it easy for its Nailhead V8 to lug around town.
