The muscle car is a typically American type of car. The muscle car can be very expensive or more friendly priced. It is a high performance vehicle, hence the name “muscle car”, but is always road-proof. The muscle car can best be defined as a high power vehicle, available for the masses.
The name muscle car derives from the first muscle cars. They were regular, smaller cars that were tuned by hobbyists, most of the time completely new engines were put in the car. So to stay in terms, “muscles” were added to the car. The hobbyists then used their newly made muscle cars to race each other in the streets and that’s where the cars got there fame.
All in all, classic muscle cars are not made anymore. There are newly released models that fit the description, but don’t get the name because they’re simply not classics. Nowadays, a smaller high-performance vehicle mostly gets a description by the brand, such as Rennsport, Gti or RS.
