As one of the most sought after cars in the 1970s, the Hemi Cuda had a legacy to maintain the time – which it did rather gracefully, being successfully raced by Chrysler France, till 1973. Chrysler made only 652 of these beauties and only 14 convertibles, making originals a rather rare sight.

Verdict

You might think that this 70-90’s sports car isn’t that fast with the 5.8 second time of 0-60 mph, but this is an astounding figure for the time. It could easily qualify as the fastest stock muscle car up till the 90s.
