The 2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang comes with a 5.2L flat plane V8 expected to deliver at least 500 horsepower and at least 400lb-ft of torque, while a monster braking system and a high tech suspension system will help to make this the best-handling Mustang ever. When combined with the unique interior and exterior appointments, the 2016 Shelby GT350 comes with a premium price tag compared to the Mustang GT, but it looks as though that premium price isn’t quite as big of a jump as we had expected.

The 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350 will have a starting price of $47,870, which does not include the $825 destination fee or the $1,300 gas guzzler tax, so when you add in those unavoidable costs, you get an out-the-door price of $49,995. This makes it a bit pricier than the Boss 302 from the previous generation Mustang, but this car is unquestionably more extreme than the Boss 302 – not to mention the fact that it will be the least expensive 500 horsepower car in America.

As we had reported in the past, the Shelby GT350 Mustang can be optioned up with either a Technology Package for $7,500 or a Track Package for $6,500 – but not both.
