Nothing says speed more than a good American Muscle car, and you will be happy to know that the best and fastest of these beasts have made their way into Forza Horizon 5 (FH5). The game offers plenty of options to pick from, right from the classics to the modern heavyweights that can reach eyewatering speeds with effortless ease. Choosing from this list of cars can sometimes be as a big a headache as the American V8 engines they run on. With this article, however, we aim to put an end to the long-running question: Which of these muscle cars is the fastest and best in the game. In this guide, we will show you the 5 picks of the bunch in FH5. Let’s get revving.
Best & Fastest Muscle Cars In Forza Horizon 5 (FH5)
2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon – The Best & Fastest Muscle Car in FH5
If the name of this beast didn’t scare you enough, it’s spec-sheet definitely will. Boasting of an insane 840 HP and 770 ft lb of torque, you will find yourself reaching blitzing speeds within no time. With the right conditions, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will hit the 100 kph mark in just 2.1 seconds. That is proper supercar territory! No wonder this beast from America rightfully earns its place as the best and fastest muscle car in Forza Horizon 5.
2020 Ford Mustang Shelby 500
There’s no way we could compile a list of the best muscle cars in FH5 without including the legendary Mustang from Ford. If you feel like the stock Mustang is not fast enough, we bring you this, the Shelby GT500. Its long bonnet hides a menacing V8 that produces 760 HP. These numbers translate into an insane 0-100kph time of 3.3 seconds. This means the Shelby sits comfortably in the leagues of FH5’s Porsches and Ferraris.
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06
The classic Corvettes were known for their gorgeous designs that set them apart from their muscle car cousins, and this iteration of Chevy’s beast is no different. The beautiful design coupled with a 650 HP engine make for really fun drives. Despite the seemingly less power when compared to the 2 cars above it in this list, the Z06 can achieve the 100kph mark in just 2.95 seconds.
2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
If the Corvette’s European-inspired exotic looks simply don’t cut it for you, here’s another monster from Chevrolet. This here is the Camaro ZL1, the faster, more aggressive version of the original Camaro. This iteration has a 650 HP engine and hits 0-100 in 3.5 seconds. Another bonus? It’s achingly pretty to look at.
2013 Dodge SRT Viper GTS
Brute, naked aggression that will shake you off your seat is what the SRT Viper GTS offers you. Nothing about this car is calm or composed. If that’s the kind of car you are looking for, look elsewhere. This Dodge is an absolute rocket, and it probably feels as quick as the fast-travel feature in FH5. While that may be a bit of an exaggeration, it just means to show how quick this car is. 0-100 kph comes up in 3.4 seconds, and that long hood houses a V10 engine, which is not the most common choice in muscle cars.
So there you have it. This was our compilation of the best and fastest muscle cars you can drive in FH5. Whether its the menacing Demon Hellcat or the gorgeous Corvette Z06, one thing is guaranteed. And that is an insane, adrenaline-filled driving experience each time you grip the steering wheel. So, don’t wait anymore. Floor the throttle and brace yourself for the ride of a lifetime!
