2015/2016 Shelby GT350 Mustang Options Pricing Leaked

Our friends from the Mustang6G forum learned through an official FoMoCo channel about the all-new Shelby GT350 Mustang’s options pricing. We aren’t going to beat around the bush too much with small talk, so let’s get down to business: this car is far from being cheap.

Some voices claim that the 2015/2016 Shelby GT350R Mustang will start at $69,995, but this information isn’t backed by any remotely solid argument. The standard GT350’s starting price isn’t known at all, but we can do some estimates based on M6G’s options pricing.

Forum member Five Oh Brian, a man close to the Blue Oval, learned that the 2015 Shelby GT350 Mustang is available with six highlight options. These are over the top stripes ($475), Triple Yellow finish ($495), black-painted roof ($695), satellite navigation ($795), Track Package ($6,500) and the Technology Pack ($7,500).

For the 2015 Shelby GT350R (applicable for the 2016 GT350R), these are the main options: R Package (over the base GT350; $3,500), Touring Pack ($3,000), satellite navigation ($795), black-painted roof ($695) and over the top stripes ($475). As Brian points out, the “base MSRP has not been announced yet.”

Nevertheless, let’s start from the previously purported $69,995 starting price for the Shelby GT350R ‘Stang. By subtracting $3,500 from $69,995, the base price for a 2015/2016 Shelby GT350 stands at $66,495. We’re not recommending to take this guesstimate as granted for a very simple reason.

The old-gen Boss 302 Laguna Seca held a base price of $49,990. Additionally, a 2015 Ford Mustang GT Premium fastback with the manual starts at $36,300 and can be equipped beyond $45k. Last but not least, the supercharged brute known as the 2014 model year Shelby GT500 held an MSRP of $55,445.

Based on a good ol fashioned gut feeling, we expect the standard GT350 Mustang to carry a mid-$50 grand starting price. In the R’s case, look forward to a sticker in the vicinity of $63,000. Despite the steep pricing, do keep in mind that the 2015 Camaro Z/28 is a $72,305 track-bred muscle car. If our estimates will be proven correct, then a generously equipped Shelby GT350R will undercut the Z/28 by $2,300 or so.
