Ford dealers sell new Shelby GT500 up to $ 100,000 extraDecember 19, 2019
On a 760 horsepower super coupe, some Ford Ford dealerships charge extra up to $ 100,000.
The absurd margins on new sports cars are not new in the modern world. Dealers inflated the prices for the new generation of the Japanese Toyota Supra coupe, and before that for the most powerful Dodge Challenger Demon. Now exactly the same thing is happening with the new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. On a 760 horsepower super coupe, some Ford Ford dealerships charge extra up to $ 100,000.
Take for example a company dealership in Virginia that wants $ 145,890 for a sports coupe. It is noteworthy that the initial price for this car, which was set by the automaker, starts at $ 70,300
Even if you select all the possible options when buying an American novelty, the price increases “only” to $ 110,300 – the car in this case boasts elements of carbon fiber, a special body color, and a special technological “package”.
According to Autoblog, another California-based dealer, requires about $ 170,000 for the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. It is noteworthy that compared to the version of the car, which is sold for $ 145,890, this version of the novelty is equipped even worse. This GT500 does not have a Carbon Fiber Track package, racing stripes on the body and a painted roof.
The good news is that many North American Ford dealers sell the new GT500 either by MSRP (the minimum retail price recommended by the automaker) or slightly higher.
Foreign journalists contacted the Ford office directly for comment on the proposed mark-ups, but have not yet received a response. And finally, I note that in our country, a new generation of “charged” coupe is not available for order.
