Look no further than the forthcoming 2018 Ford Mustang GT, which Ford claims will sprint to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds with its 460-horsepower V-8 engine, 10-speed automatic transmission and optional Performance Package.

As you can see from the list below, there’s no shortage of models — or body styles — that meet the mark, and they’re available across a wide range of starting prices (all prices include a destination charge).
