Ford Launches Mustang Shelby GT500 Configurator, But You’d Better Be Careful With Those Options



The online configurator for the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is now available, and if the most powerful street-legal ‘Stang ever built ever tickles your fancy, playing with it can be a nice way to spend some time.

When users log on to the configurator, the first thing they are presented with is a choice between 11 different colors. These include Shadow Black, Grabber Lime, Oxford White, Velocity Blue (pictured), Iconic Silver, Magnetic, Race Red, Ford Performance Blue, Kona Blue, plus the optional Rapid Red and Twister Orange, that’ll set you back $395 and $495 respectively.

The Mustang GT500 can be optioned with vinyl stripes down the sides in addition to the racing stripes running along the center of the pony car. These stripes are available in vinyl for $1,000, or can be painted on for an exorbitant $10,000.

In terms of packages, customers can select the Carbon Fiber Track Pack that adds 20-inch carbon fiber wheels, Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 tires, rear seat delete, adjustable strut top mounts, and a fixed rear wing, for $18,500. Other options include an exposed carbon fiber instrument panel, memory driver’s seat, a B&O sound system with 12 speakers and a subwoofer, and a voice-activated touchscreen navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link.

Prices go as high as $107,080 for a GT500 with all the available options, but the one we specced has a more palatable price tag of $76,495. That’s very reasonable, when you consider it is powered by a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 churning out 760 HP and 625 lb-ft (847 Nm) of torque that’s mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission from Tremec.
