Can You Guess How High Dealership Markups Are For The Shelby GT350?

Sports Car

Here’s a hint: A lot.

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 is looking like one heck of aperformance bargain. The muscle car is equipped with a 526-hp 5.2-liter V8 thatcan rev all the way out to 8,200 rpm. It’s blisteringly fast, makes a brutalsound and has already won one award. What makes the Shelby GT350 and the morehardcore GT350R even more desirable is the fact that the muscle cars start atan affordable price. The GT350 starts from $47,795 (excluding destination and gasguzzler tax) while the GT350R starts at $61,295.

At under $50,000, the GT350 is a performance bargain, butdealerships know that the two muscle cars will garner a lot of attention andhave smacked the vehicles with a massive markup. Reddit user rubysown spotted aGT350 with a $20,000 markup. That brings the price tag for this specific GT350to a whopping $78,345 or roughly the same price as a Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Unfortunately,the Z06 is more powerful, faster and better than the GT350 in every waypossible. Since both vehicles could be priced similarly, would you take the GT350or Z06?
