Most of that is thanks to an $18,500 (!) available Carbon Fiber Track package.
The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will start at $70,300, but a $1,095 destination fee and $2,600 gas guzzler tax will put the actual base price at $73,995.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Ford Motor Company never fails to make those jaws drop in awe!
The last big ticket item is the Technology package for $3,000.
Customers will also be able to order a Handling Package for $1,500. Specifying all of these packages takes the GT500's price to $96,995. This engine is good for 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet as standard, and the aftermarket will certainly tune the hell out of it. Hennessey Performance Engineering could crank out 1,000 ponies without too much of an effort, but the rear tires wouldn't like that at all. It's another $1,000 for over-the-top full racing stripes in vinyl, but having those done in paint costs $10,000-we question if the paint option is ten times better, but either is a great tie-in to Shelby heritage.
Ford isn't sharing stand-alone option pricing for the GT500 yet, but even with just the tech and Carbon Fiber Track packages added, this Mustang tops $95,000. The driver wouldn't want to slide out of their seat during hard cornering, so the leather-trimmed Recaros are a $1,595 must-have.
Powering the GT500 is a 5.2L paired to a Tremec dual-clutch seven-speed trans. The Blue Oval claims the muscle auto can cover the quarter mile in a sub-11-second time, and the top speed is a factory-limited 180 miles per hour (289.6 kilometers per hour).
The 760 hp coupe will cost $73,995 when it goes on sale later this year.
