Ford Motor hasn't even announced the MSRP for the Shelby Cobra GT500 yet, but enthusiastic buyers have already promised dealers that they will pay $20,000 more to get their hands on one.

CNN/Money reports that Ford dealers advertising on eBay Motors are asking for bids that indicate the amount over the sticker price that buyers are willing to pay, and getting bids over $20,000. The car is expected to list for around $40,000, so that means that buyers eager to get one of the early production models are willing to pony up (couldn't resist) at least $60,000.

The first units arriving at dealerships in a couple of weeks, and most dealers will only get one or two.
