Guess What Ride 42: Which V8 Was Most Powerful?

GuessWhatRide is the game designed to test your collector car knowledge. By 1985 the Detroit horsepower war saw a resurgence as new technology helped achieve higher horsepower and torque while meeting modern fuel economy and emissions regulations.

We ran this contest during the week of April 3, 2022.  While the turbocharged Buick Grand National (Option “B”) produced the most torque of the engines shown, that wasn’t the question! 60% of the respondents fell victim to our trap, while 29% correctly chose Option “C” (1985 Mustang GT) as the most powerful V8! Of these, congrats go to Thomas R. for being chosen at random to win a $50 gift certificate from our friends at Car Care Specialties!
