Only 1,000 examples of this Shelby Mustang GT500 are said to be made every year.
A standard 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will set you back $70,300, making it more expensive than its main rivals, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Add some of the optional extras, and the price can enter six-figure territory. YouTuber Speed Phenom recently took delivery of his new Shelby GT500, which has the optional Carbon Fiber Track Package and every available option installed.
Total price? A whopping $107,000, which the new owner claims makes it the most expensive Ford Mustang ever made. Painted stripes are pricey, you know.
In a new video, Speed Phenom gives us a behind the scenes look at the pricey GT500 arriving at the dealership. The YouTuber already owned a 2020 GT500 and racked up 13,000 miles in the muscle car over eight months but traded it for the Track Pack variant, which they ordered 14 months ago.
Costing $18,500, the Carbon Fiber Track Pack adds a selection of components that make the GT500 more track-focused, starting with 20-inch carbon-fiber wheels wrapped in super sticky 305/30R20 Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 tires at the front and 315/30R20 tires at the rear. It also adds side-splitter wickers and a gigantic carbon-fiber rear wing derived from the Mustang GT4 race car.
Inside, you get an exposed carbon-fiber instrument panel and Ford also removes the rear seat to reduce weight. Speed Phenom added a white hand-painted racing stripe that contrasts with the blue paint - this option costs $10,000 alone. Speed Phenom got a first look at the GT500 Track Pack after it was delivered to the dealer straight from the factory.
It's so fresh that it was still wearing its pre-delivery wrap and packaging. Some of the aero components also needed to be installed by the dealer before the car gets delivered: the front splitter is stored in the front passenger seat, while the front splitter wickers and oil separator system are stashed in the trunk.
Spending six figures on a Mustang will be difficult for most people to justify, but if fast lap times are a priority you might want to consider it because Speed Phenom found the GT500 was five seconds faster around the track with the Carbon Fiber Track Pack installed. You won't see many of these track-focused Mustangs on the road, however, as Ford will only produce around 1,000 Track Pack GT500s per year.
