This Shelby Mustang EcoBoost Has To Be The Worst Deal Of The Century

$24K gets you 25 more hp and new paint.

The Ford Mustang may be the best-selling sports car for this year, but the 2016 Shelby Mustang EcoBoost isn’t going to help the automaker’s cause. Shelby American has just released modifications for the Mustang EcoBoost, which includes both visual and mechanical upgrades. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine has been fitted with a modified ECU and a custom sports exhaust system for a total of 335 hp. That’s an increase of just 25 hp! We understand that getting more power out of a vehicle is difficult, but couldn’t Shelby have done a little bit more for that price?

Another major performance package includes the Track Handling package that aids in the vehicle's handling. All of the performance parts on the Shelby Mustang EcoBoost add up to approximately $4,000, so the rest is all for looks. The sports car comes with a body kit that includes a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber side skirts, and a carbon fiver hood. To complement the carbon fiber parts, there are Shelby GT stripes and badges, as well as 20-inch Weld Racing wheels. Shelby hasn’t done much on the inside besides adding Shelby floor mats, Shelby sill plates, Shelby embroidered headrests, along with a dashboard plaque. Unbelievably, Shelby retains the parts that come off of your Mustang, which makes this the worst upgrade ever.
