Woah boy......... Looks like someone doesn't realize that ALL of the Shelby packages cost $7390, plus gas-guzzler tax. That price is tacked onto the price of the GT coupe.. which range from $27000+ As an example, my coupe alone, before the Shelby package was $31,640.. Since you seem like the kind of person that learns from pictures, here you go: (and I will do this step-by-step, so you can take in all this info...) Here is the regular Ford Mustang GT window sticker from my car: Okay, it has the upfitters package, which is basically the California Special Package (rims, scoops, bumpers), minus the fancy leather... Here is the FINAL MSRP of my car before going to Shelby: Got that so far? ---------------------------------------- (this little line might help you realize I am moving on to something else)......... Here is the SHELBY window sticker that is affixed to the windshield, IN ADDITION TO THE FORD STICKER!!!!!!!!! And here is the final Shelby package price: Does the window sticker put things into perspective? Do you see all that you actually get for $7390??? Couple of other points: The Shelby package window stickers are the same for every Shelby. The price is $7390... I'm not going to factor in the gas-guzzler tax. It is not going to Shelby, it goes to the govt. So, with all of this info in mind, you need to realize that the SHELBY PACKAGE is $7390. The only reason why a Shelby GT could cost $40000 is because of the options on the coupe. Mine, for example, has $1000 worth of stereo.. Is it worth it? YES.. Mainly because I don't want the punks at Circuit City touching my car.. And, the Shaker 1000 is awesome.. It's also covered by warranty.
