When Ford announced the GT500KR's based price of $79,995, many of you thought that it was pretty steep for a Mustang. Even though it's a limited edition Shelby with 540 horsepower, $80,000 can buy a lot of really nice cars. What's even more insane is that we know people will not only buy the KR, but they will pay tens of thousands of dollars over MSRP just to have one. The only question was how much dealers would try and gouge. That question has been answered. Lone Star Ford in Houston, TX has put up a red GT500KR on eBay Motors with a "Buy It Now" price of...$154,991.00. That's nearly double the MSRP. Who knows if anyone will actually buy it at that price, but going off what happened with the standard GT500, then it's quite possible. While we enjoyed our first drive in the GT500KR (check out Part 1 and Part 2), we can think of quite a few cars we'd rather have for $150,000.

      With companies like Year One and Original Parts Group around, it baffles me that people will throw that kind of money at a car on a lot.

        I mean just give me the base v6 mustang and with the remaining money, I'd have something built to blow that suckers doors off.

      Where do they find these guys? I have two friends that bought heir GT500s for sticker (supposed to be in the first 2 sold in Canada). Only morons pay over sticker for anything.

      150K is a bit high. I'll sell my GT500 Super Snake 725HP with 1280 miles before conversion and 20 miles after. 125K

      The icing on the cake is the poor photoshop of the car into the stealership parking lot.
        • 6 Years Ago
        OH.

        MY.


        GAWD IT'S A PHOTOSHOP.

        Unbelievable. I didn't see it until you pointed it out. You can especially tell from the back of the car. I wouldn't buy it anyway even if it was real.
      • 6 Years Ago
      sign me up for two of those!!!

      I would so rather have a Ford GT...I mean it's a real supercar. But like so many of us...there are so many cars I would rather have for performance, looks, etc... What about you guys...there must be a lot.

      • 6 Years Ago

      LOL

        This is equivalent to a Yugo for $50K
        • 6 Years Ago
        Listen, laugh all you want. At the end of the day, the dealer has put a Buy it now price?

        Do you really think he expects to get that? No, but when you are negotiating the sale of your auto, you can always negotiate down, negotiating the price up is harder.

        If he put a BIN of 90K and there was some yahoo who was willing to spill 105, he left 15K pure profit on the table. He puts it in at 155 and some joker offers 95, no harm no foul if he takes it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I'm sure that if someone click BIN, that dealer is not going to neg lower the price. They are going to want that full 155k
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hmm... marked-up GT-R that can keep up with a Carrera GT or an equally marked-up Mustang that sweats when a Corvette pulls up?
      • 6 Years Ago
      That's just awesome. Almost all car dealers are clueless, but this one is the dumbest kid on the short bus.

      I mean really, $150k for a supercharged Mustang? For that price, I can buy a Z06 Corvette AND a Nissan GT-R. I laughed out loud just typing that sentence...
        • 6 Years Ago
        30k more gets you both the ZR-1 and the GT-R. Now THAT made me laugh out loud.
