2003 Ford Mustang

No matter what Ford did to the Mustang in 2003, the year would be known for the re-release of the monster SVT Cobra. The 2003 Ford Mustang engines started with a base 3.8-liter OHV, rated at 193 horsepower. The GT had a 4.6-liter, 16-valve SOHC V8 rated at 260 horsepower, the Mach 1 had a 4.6-liter, 32-valve DOHC rated at 305 horsepower (can you see I'm building to something here?), and the Cobra had a 4.6-liter, 32-valve DOHC rated at 390 horsepower. Dude, 390!

Not to be outdone, Saleen had its 20th Anniversary model with a base of 375 horsepower that could be tuned to numbers nearing and exceeding the Cobra.
