Wow that's a money grab. Don't get me wrong I am all for companies modifying vehicles, but the only 'close to' big dollar item I can see on that list are the wheels. As always each to their own I guess.

I think it is about selling a more exclusive Shelby American product. Now that the Ford mass run of this cycle of the GT350/R is ending, Shelby American is creating a limited edition with some enhancements, plaques and registry to sell to those who want to own a 'rare' Shelby variant.

I am expecting the next mass Shelby product made by Ford, either alongside the GT500 or afterward will be a Shelby F150 variant slotted above Raptor. And perhaps the next Shelby Mustang will be electric or hybrid performance. Shelby needs Ford to produce enough volume vehicles to keep the Shelby name relevant, and Shelby American can focus on niche variants not mass produced in partnership with Ford.

Yeah I get that, but making a 350 a limited run by adding wheels, seat covers and some stickers is not really what I would call exclusive. The Supersnakes at least have some decent modifications to them that differ them vastly to a factory GT. Same as the previous GT500 supersnakes. But if people will pay for it then I guess they have done their homework and I'll be stuck here with just a regular GT350.

If Shelby says it is 1 of ### SE's and people buy it....it's exclusive to those who pay for it.

Don't like the seats.....too many ruffles. Throwback to the 1500's maybe...I don't know.

The 500 package is selling out. For a base 350, I dont think its a bad deal. But for the R, no go
