2. Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500
You can’t have a list of midlife crisis cars without the iconic Ford Mustang, and if you’re going to get a Mustang, why not get the best? The Shelby GT 500 is the king of the Mustangs, with a 5.8 liter V8 under the hood pumping out 662 horsepower and 631 lb-ft of torque. How fast can this king gallop you ask? The top speed of this powerful stead is 189 mph, more than anyone will ever need. The GT 500 also rockets up to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, which is faster than it took you to read this sentence. Equipped with adjustable dampers, the GT 500 allows the driver to switch between settings appropriate for track or road use. If you want raw power and a head turning ride rolled up into one, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 will certainly get the job done.
