The Chrysler 300. The only real muscle car on the market, I challenge anyone to give me an example of another (Feel free to take that challenge, I am interested o what you come up with). That said, this cars large-block V8 produced a whopping 750 muscles at a remarkably low 5900 revs, better acceleration. This car was interesting, as it had a little bit of understeer in and a little bit of oversteer out, put that together and you get...let's just say "bad lap times". This car wants to take off like a bullet out of corners when you tack on the 6-speed CRT, but then the oversteer gets worse. The only car I've tuned so far that actually benefits from a higher rear ride height. Other tan that, the cars spec sheet is phenomenal: 51/49 weight balance, high power at low revs, and a PWR of 1.86, this is essentially a supercar with
767(!) Ft-lbs of torque.Tipping the scale at 1417 Kg., the car is by no means heavy, but it isn't a Caterham, so...well, it uses the power well. Grips like mad on RS. All this and I haven't even started tuning yet. Now...the tune. Removing the ARB altogether was the key part of this tune: set it at 2 and instant understeer. The thing about this tune is that I could make it an FGT. I mean I could probably turn it into a stiff track car, but that would't be any fun. In deciding to not remove the rear ARB I left in the car's yearn to oversteer, which makes it feel like a muscle car without all the smoke coming from the wheel well. Wow, don't think I've ever wrote this many notes about one car, but this is by far my new favorite car.Enjoy, my fellow drivers. I know I did.
The 300C fits your description as "just a full-size sedan with a V8" only that they're more upscale like a Mercedes. The only 300C that could be a muscle car is the SRT-8 model.
Muscle cars describes vehicles with high performance which are generally affordable and more suited for drag racing. Many different body styles can fit into the term of muscle car as long as they're performance orientated. As such powerful pony cars can be labelled as a 'muscle car'.

- 1987 Nissan Be-1 w/canvas roof, and a parts car
Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang, aren't they modern day muscle cars? Could possibly add the Dodge Charger, Holden Commodore SS (Australian), and Ford Falcon GT (Australian).
Don't know about the Australian cars, but the Callenger, Camaro, and Mustang are pony cars, and the Charger is really just a full-size sedan with a V8.
"Muscle car is a term used to refer to a variety of high-performance automobiles. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines muscle cars as "any of a group of American-made 2-door sports coupes with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving."A large V8 engine is fitted in a 2-door, rear wheel drive, family-style mid-size or full-size car designed for four or more passengers. Sold at an affordable price, muscle cars are intended for mainly street use and occasional drag racing. They are distinct from two-seat sports cars and expensive 2+2 GTs intended for high-speed touring and road racing. Developed simultaneously in their own markets, muscle cars also emerged from manufacturers in Australia, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere"
Mustangs and such are no Compact cars, they are Mid size
Do some research before opening your mouth... GOD I hate Chrysler 300 lovers, they think they are all that! Same goes to Chevy lovers, you all think you own the roads!
