    It means it's for guys that would have a mustang over anything else, no matter the performance or price.
    I'm sure some car guys with collections might buy it, but I would guess these will go to guys with a stable, and this will be the ultimate Mustang. Jay Leno is likely a possibility.
    I see it in many variances. Lots of guys buying only one brand due to loyalty or upbringing. I just think this model is an intelligent target at exactly those guys, who are a bit older now, and with some cash to spend on their favorite ride.

    I'd buy one if I could, being the Mustang fan that I am.

    It looks like a bad chop. Something isn't right about the wheels.

    Yeah, they look better in the video.The dished look on a modest width rim just looks silly. It almost looks like they didn't swap the tires on the video car though. Still look like 285's. I know so many gt500 guys that swap for 305/315's right away, why wouldn't Shelby I wonder?
    I hope they are at least a better tire.

    The new 2013 Mustang Shelby GT500 is only about $66,000

    Great bang for the buck IMO

    650HP with warranty

    Lol $200k for that. No thanks. That is 911 Turbo territory.

    I'm sure a GT500 will be 95% as fast in most scenarios and easier to live with day to day at nearly 1/4 the price. A few mods probably brings it even closer.

    I used to love mustangs. Now I know better.
    Didn't they round up the CC on the old Mustangs as well? I read something about them not being exactly 5000 when they first came out.

    Maybe @ 70K max & that's a HUGE maybe....

    LOL @ all the STi talk... 1000hp reliably or even putting 200K into an STi Something about the average STi fanboy tells me they most likely own an iPhone also...

    Definitely a sleeper, i'll give you that.
    THAT is a sleeper???

    Good gawd man.

    $200k is steep, but not for that kind of power, especially if it's reliable, beefed up drivetrain etc.

    There is nothing you can buy for that money that will match that brute under acceleration. And Being A Shelby, it probably carried SOME warranty

    What car is there for $200k that will make 1000hp?

    What car produced for that price, by anyone close to as legendary as Carrol Shelby?

    Now that he is dead, had one of these hit the public, it's easily a $500,000 car right now.

    It's not as shiny of a penis extension as a Lambo or Ferrari, but it is one fuck of a lot faster.

    You may not be able to get a car that makes 1000HP for $200k but you can probably find faster ones.

    I bet a 911 Turbo S would outrun it, and I bet a lot of similarly priced exotics would beat it around the track. That is just my guess though, and I would be curious to see the actual result.

    Maybe it's just me but IMO there is nothing impressive about taking a mediocre car, put insane HP in it, and selling it for the price of an exotic. I'd still like to drive one though haha, it would be fun. Just like when I rented a corvette - that was one of the largest POS's I've ever driven, and I'd never buy one, but it was a lot of fun for a week.

    Shit just got real, son.

    I'd take the 200k and buy 2 GTRs! Combine those 2 bad boys and i'll have 900+ HP. Double GTR POWERRR

    1000 stands for 1000 problems and regrets the day you drive it off the lot?
