You want one. We want one. Everyone is going to want one. We're talking about the new 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. From that delightful 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V-8 engine to, well the noise from that delightful flat-plane crank V-8, we're sold. Now we know exactly how much we need to spend, too, because you can head to the Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] website and configure your own car right now.
The Shelby GT350 starts at just $47,795. A destination charge of $900 brings that figure to $48,695, and a $1,300 gas-guzzler tax takes the total to $49,995, before you start adding some options. We'll take ours in black with the track package for $57,190. Of course, we could jump to the GT350R if we saved a few more of our pennies.
Shelby's race-prepped GT350R starts at $61,295 before the $900 destination charge and $1,300 gas-guzzler tax take you up to $63,495. Here you're getting upgraded aero and chassis tuning. as well as 19-inch carbon fiber wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 rubber. The GT350R is sure to be a monster of a machine that might not have as much power as the Hellcat (526 hp vs 707 hp), but we have to believe that the GT350R will smack its face off around your local racing circuit.
We're eager to find out, regardless because... in the end, we're all winners here.
