Muscle cars are high performance American cars, which have a lot of fans in GTA. However, besides their performance, players also pay attention to the cars' design. Here are the top 5 best muscle cars in GTA Online 2022.

1. Apocalypse Imperator

The Vapid Apocalypse Imperator is based on the legendary 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT. It is one of those cars in GTA V that every player wants to own. It was added to the game in 2018, as part of the Arena update.

With a top speed of 132.75 mph, it is the fastest muscle car in GTA Online. The Imperator possesses excellent acceleration and decent speed thanks to its single-cam V8 engine.

2. Apocalypse Dominator

Made by the same company as the Imperator, Apocalypse Dominator is also added to the game in the same 1.46 update. It is based on the Ford Mustang custom in the 2008 Death Race movie. This car boasts an incredible speed of 131 mph and can be acquired by customizing a normal Dominator in the Arena Workshop.

The Dominator's acceleration is reduced due to the heaviness caused by the armor parts. However, it has a better pushing capability.

3. Apocalypse Impaler

The Apocalypse Impaler is the upgraded version of GTA Online's standard Impaler. It is based on Pachenko's Buick, another car from the aforementioned Death Race movie. 3 years have passed since its release, however, the Apocalypse Impaler remains one of the best muscle cars in the game.

The vehicle improves over the standard version in top speed and acceleration due to the weight reduction, and its brakes also appear to be more efficient due to the rear wheels having more grip. The Apocalypse Impaler can get Boost upgrades to significantly speed up its acceleration.

4. Pißwasser Dominator

The Vapid Pißwasser Dominator is a two-door racing muscle car appearing in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, as part of the Cunning Stunts update. Overall, it is essentially a Dominator with a Pißwasser racing livery, sharing the same derivatives.

5. Bravado Gauntlet Classic Custom

The Bravado Gauntlet Classic Custom debuts in GTA Online as part of the Los Santos Summer Special update. It is a faster version of the Gauntlet Classic that players can acquire from Benny's Original Motor Works. It performs much better than the standard Gauntlet Classic, with top speed comparable to the Gauntlet Hellfire.

The handling and suspension remain from its standard version, allowing it to run through bumps and curbs at high speed without losing stability. However, the understeer problem will become more serious as the speed increases, which might lead to loss of control and slide out in turns.
