Only for the Mustang could there be a special edition of a special edition. The initial announcement for the 2008 Shelby GT named Vista Blue as the car's only new color, but apparently California dealers are getting a limited allotment of Shelby GTs in Grabber Orange. Only 217 have been built in this color, representing less than 10% of just 2,500 that are scheduled for production this year at the Shelby facility in Las Vegas. Perry Ford in San Luis Obispo already has one in stock and has put it up on eBay with a starting bid of $40,000. If the price gouging on other Shelbys is anything to go by, then expect the reserve price to be quite a bit higher.

      I feel like I should be playing "Rocky Top" on repeat in that thing........

      Holly Shiiiiit....is that their 45th model they brought out this past 2 years. I'm sick of these fake pathetic edition they bring out every other month....lets perfect the base model first then come with these numerous editions. Ford, im with you but lets make some sense and think little bit like the japanese.

        The problem is that 95% of these Special Editions aren't from Ford.

        I still chuckle when everyone puts the blame on Ford...

      What is with all the parrots here and elsewhere? Everybody agreed the interior was great for 1.5 years, now that's everybody's fav thing to hate about the car. I'm sorry but the interior is awesome compared to any comparably priced car, and in some respects is better than a Vette dash.

      The price gouging on Shelby's really annoys me. The Ford dealership half a mile from my apartment has a used GT500, black with gray stripes, and they want $65,000 for it. The car has been sitting on their lot for 6 months because they refuse to lower the price. They also have a used Shelby GT they want $45,000 for. I love those cars but I wouldn't pay that much for a new one, let alone a used one.

        The fake vents irk me on these things. Otherwise, I have to agree: nice car.

      I really want to like the Mustang. I loved the initial pics of the car. Then, I saw the interior. The interior kills the car and makes it not worth $30K, let alone $60K. I don't care if it's a Shelby or not. A car with that price tag shouldn't have such an ugly interior.

      I agree -- it's definitely a nice ride, and I wouldn't complain if someone gave me one. (Okay, I'd be thrilled.) $40-$65,000 though? Forget it. The orange/silver combo is hot, but at least show some effort to make the interior special, e.g., use some orange stitching on the seats, steering wheel and other interior bits. With a little spice (thanks, ansky), $35-$40,000 might start to make sense.

        such a nice car to have the most bland interior ever. You might be driving a shelby but it will look like a Taurus from the drivers seat.

        Give it some spice Ford, what a waste.

      $40k car with a $5.00 interior - nice. My childhood Big Wheel was made with nicer plastic... Do people buy these without a test drive or what???

      Theese are on the road allready I see one in the rush hr commute. (In Phx AZ) I think the orage is a bit too washed out when compared to the Camaro's hugger orange.
