Not a Bargain, but Competitive
We’ve reported on the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 before. The car is a force to be reckoned with, and it’s the most powerful street car Ford has ever produced with 760 hp from its supercharged V8 engine. The GT500 will be sold alongside the GT350, but until now, nobody knew how much more expensive it would be. Pricing just came out and things are looking pretty good.
The Mustang Shelby GT500 will cost $73,995. That’s just the starting price, and that includes the gas guzzler tax that this car will have to endure. Obviously, from there, you can add all kinds of options to increase the price. According to Car and Driver, the price of an optioned out car climbs to around $95,000. That’s a lot of money for a Mustang, but then this is no ordinary Mustang.
The closest competitors to the GT500 are the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, which comes with a price of $64,695, or the Dodge Hellcat Redeye, which has a starting price of $73,440. With that in mind, it makes the Mustang the most expensive of the three. However, we’re sure Ford would argue it’s undoubtedly the best car. Whether or not that’s true will be easier to determine once the car gets out in the world. It should come out this fall.
