1998 Ford Mustang

The 1998 Ford Mustang had few changes from the 1996 Mustang and 1997 Mustang. The Saleens were so close to one another that many refer to the car as the "1997-1998 Saleen."

The GT did manage to find an extra 10 horsepower somewhere, moving from 215 to 225 with a similar 4.6-liter V8.
