Should you start saving?
Set to hit dealerships in the coming months, pricing for the new 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R has just been leaked online, courtesy of the Mustang 6G forum. So how much will each of these muscle cars set you back? According to the leaked documents, the GT350 has a starting price of $48,695, and $62,195 for the GT350R. Neither of those figures include destination or the gas guzzler tax. Once buyers start checking the option boxes, however, each of those figures will quickly increase.
For example, the Technology Package costs another $7,500 while the Track Package is $6,500. An Electronics Package is an additional $3,000 and even the painted black roof demands $695. Want a racing stripe? $475, please. Triple yellow tri-coat paint? $495. Even a car cover cost $375. Most importantly, that 5.2-liter naturally aspirated flat-plane V8 with over 520 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque is standard.
