The Dream Is Alive
You can now build and price a 2016 Shelby GT350 or GT350R online
By Steve Turner
If you’ve been wondering what that Shelby GT350 is going to set you back, the Build & Price configurator is live on Ford’s site. If you have been interested in this car, just wait until you experience it in person and then you’ll be heading right over to this site anyway. It really is an incredible machine, and considering what you are getting, it’s a pretty solid value for the money.
The base GT350 clocks in is at $47,795 before you start tacking on options. If you are gearing up for the road course, the Track Package will add on $6,500. However, if street cruising with all the toys is more your speed, the Technology package will add $7,500 to the tally. You can’t have both though, so choose wisely. At least they both include Magneride…
For those that want maximum performance, there’s the GT350R. If you’ve been lusting after the lighter R-model and those super sexy carbon-fiber wheels, this package starts off at $62,195 before anything is added. Keep in mind that part of that weight reduction means no air conditioning, radio, or navigation. To get those niceties in an R-model, you’ll need to select the Electronics Package, which seems cheaper than we expected at $3,000.
Of course, you can check all this out for yourself on the configurator right here. What this means to us is that we are inching closer to seeing these cars on the street and that will be fun for everyone, even if you don’t buy one.
