It's all down to supply and demand.
Dealerships suck and this proves it. Instead of helping enthusiasts get into their dream machines, dealerships are out there to dime and nickel every enthusiast that's looking to get into a car. Don't believe us? Take Van Bortel Ford in New York as an example. The dealership is asking for $149,500 for a Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang. That's freaking insane! A base GT350 Mustang starts at $48,000, while the more hardcore GT350R has an asking price of $61,000. This dealership has increased the muscle car's price by a cool $100,000.
Other dealerships nickel and dime you, while this dealership decided to just take everything. If you're wondering how this is possible, it all comes down to the fact that Ford only built 137 units of the GT350 and GT350R for 2015. This isn't the first time we've seen dealerships with market adjustments on the muscle car. To make matters worse, one unfortunate enthusiast will end up paying the absurd price to get into one of America's greatest ever muscle cars.
