John DeLorean added an option package to the 1964 Pontiac Tempest and the Pontiac GTO was born. From a simple option package that bumped up the horsepower with a 389ci V8 the muscle car was born.
In the ensuing decades the formula for a muscle car has stayed consistent: two-door American car with room for four, and a V8 engine up front that sends power to the rear wheels. A simple concept that led to a segment of cars that are loud, fast and fun to drive.
