2020 Shelby GT500 Marked up to insane $206,000 Price Tag

Passionate cars like the Ford GT500 are the pinnacle of a car manufacturer’s engineering and passion. Automotive engineers haven’t pursued their careers in building cars to design the latest CUV, no, they want to build something exciting and every once in a while the accountants allow the expense of releasing a car like the GT500. The passion required to build a limited-edition car like the GT500 is evident in every aggressive crease in the body and heard through the noisy exhaust as the 740 horsepower kicks in. The only thing that could hurt this incredible achievement is the greedy profit margins of the dealerships that turn cars like the GT500 from working-class heroes into unattainable collectibles.

Today, Youtuber and Mustang enthusiast Speed ​​Phenom visited a Ford dealership in Orange County, California to investigate a unique 2020 Mustang GT500. The Mustang itself is a nice spec combining an Iconic Silver paint job with black painted tuxedo stripes and the desirable carbon fiber track pack. That spec has Ford’s MSRP set at $ 105,000, which might sound like a lot for a Mustang, but we know the 2020 GT500 is far from a normal Mustang.

The Ford dealership also knows this is no ordinary Mustang and they seem very proud of it. So proud in fact, that they decided to add a mark of $ 100,000 on this GT500 by inflating the price to $ 206,000. It’s like adding four years of college tuition loans on top of the already high sticker price.

Dealer profit margins kill passionate cars and hamper the purchase of specialty products like the GT500. This artificial price inflation is a slap in the face for all the good people in the Ford company who have worked long days and nights to fit the best possible performance into an affordable package. Raising the funds to buy a $ 100,000 Mustang is already absurd, but doubling the price for no reason means you need McLaren money to buy a Ford. Only resellers benefit from these price increases and this practice must be stopped.
