Ridiculous - Dealer Asking $155k for 2008 Shelby GT500 KR

When $72k can put you behind the wheel of the awesome 2009 Nissan GT-R (in the U.S.), even the $79,995 that Ford officially asks for Shelby Mustang GT500KR sounds a lot. Despite the 540Hp supercharged V8 that lurks under those menacing looks and the fact that only 1,746 unit will be produced, in the end, the GT500KR is still a Mustang.

So you can probably guess the first word that came into mind when we saw that a Ford dealer in Houston Texas put up a red Shelby GT500KR for sale on eBay with a “Buy It Now” price of… $154,991. All we can say is that with $30,000 less, you can leave a Porsche dealership with a brand-new 911 GT3 RS… -Continued

why pay 115K for a Ford?!?!

get a nice Nissan GT-R for less than 90K.... It's better quality, runs faster, and much better looking..

The only mustangs worth $150k are the original 60s GT500s and KRs.
This example is merely a $30K GT with 10-15K worth of extras. Not worth a dime over 50 grand.

Ford should step in and tell the dealers to stop this BS! The dealers did the same with the GT500 in 07 70-80K fir a 45k car. But in the end the people with the money are the foolish ones...why would you pay that much for a Mustang. I own a 2007 Shelby GT
that I bought in 08. Last summer asking price was 42k this spring 37k... what do you think a 78k asking price will get in spring 09 with $5.00/gal fuel???

You say..."Why do i care what the gas prices are when i just payed 80k for a mustang?" If you can afford such a fine automobile why is anyone worried what gas prices are?
