Should Ford Be Asking This Much For Its Hottest New Models?

Pricing / Comments

Blue Oval releases pricing for the Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R.

With the online release of its configurator for the coveted 2016 Shelby Mustang GT350 and GT350R, Ford has essentially revealed the price list for these two high-performance models. And while both of these cars look incredibly hot in just about every configuration, they do come at a hefty premium. The 2016 Shelby GT350R starts from $61,295 (excluding destination and gas guzzler tax). Opt for the cheaper and more road-friendly GT350 and you'll look at prices starting from $47,795 (in addition to $900 destination and $1,300 gas guzzler tax).

Of course, both are powered by Ford's flat-plane crank N/A 5.2-liter V8, churning out a sweet 526 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque and mated to a 6-speed manual with RWD. Want to see what you're really paying for? Check out Ford's own GT350R track footage:
