Ford Launches Mustang Shelby GT500 Configurator, But You’d Better Be Careful With Those Options

The online configurator for the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is now available, and if the most powerful street-legal ‘Stang ever built ever tickles your fancy, playing with it can be a nice way to spend some time.

When users log on to the configurator, the first thing they are presented with is a choice between 11 different colors. These include Shadow Black, Grabber Lime, Oxford White, Velocity Blue (pictured), Iconic Silver, Magnetic, Race Red, Ford Performance Blue, Kona Blue, plus the optional Rapid Red and Twister Orange, that’ll set you back $395 and $495 respectively.

The Mustang GT500 can be optioned with vinyl stripes down the sides in addition to the racing stripes running along the center of the pony car. These stripes are available in vinyl for $1,000, or can be painted on for an exorbitant $10,000.

In terms of packages, customers can select the Carbon Fiber Track Pack that adds 20-inch carbon fiber wheels, Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 tires, rear seat delete, adjustable strut top mounts, and a fixed rear wing, for $18,500. Other options include an exposed carbon fiber instrument panel, memory driver’s seat, a B&O sound system with 12 speakers and a subwoofer, and a voice-activated touchscreen navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link.

Prices go as high as $107,080 for a GT500 with all the available options, but the one we specced has a more palatable price tag of $76,495. That’s very reasonable, when you consider it is powered by a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 churning out 760 HP and 625 lb-ft (847 Nm) of torque that’s mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission from Tremec.

    So who’s painting those $10,000 stripes, Pablo Picasso?

    • Ben

      Listen here, buddy, the stripes are designed by Ford to be extra light! They’re a woven matrix of spider webbing, woven by the most delicate and rarest spiders found in the amazon. They’re then heat treated and blasted with a coating of sapphire dust made from crushed up Rolex watch lenses. Only then are they laid onto the car, delicately like a sleeping new born baby.

    Is there an option to lose 300lbs of weight?
    What a poor job Ford.

    probably bespoke stripes

  • Mitt Zombie

    GT350 is really a better car. This just spins the tires more mostly.

  • SgtBeavis

    I’ve got no hate for this car but, to me, the C8 Vette renders the GT500 as inconsequential.

    • Ben

      Well they’re two different vehicles. I’m not a Mustang fan, but just because the C8 has arguably a higher performance ceiling doesn’t mean this car is inconsequential to all. There’s more to vehicles than the numbers on the brochure. That being said, I’d spring for the Corvette, but that’s just my subjective reasoning.

    $10K stripes just goes to show how greedy manufacturers are in these prosperous times. Can you say “cash cow”?

    • Tumbi Mtika

      My goodness, that’s taking the piss.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Lmfao the AfFoRDaBLe GT500 people sold themselves on in the press photos costs an extra 20K in options!

    It’s a $100K car even before the dealers mark it up to high heaven!
