Saw the car at the local dealership but it's already sold.

Looks stunning in Lightning Blue.

Hope Santa doesn't make too much noise on Christmas Eve when he parks that in my garage next to my S197 :D

Cool looking not my style though. The carbon fiber accents are a nice touch would be cool to see that more often., Are there 2 front brake calipers on the front? I've never seen that before.

That is the rear brake.

I'm thinking that's a parking brake, or maybe a separate brake for line lock. Just a guess though.

$139,995??? WTF?
I literally laughed my ass off when I seen the price. He's also selling a '13 Boss 302 for $70,000. Granted it's running a Hellion twin turbo. But 30k-35k to pick up a used Boss 302 plus 5k for a Hellion system...Not 70k.

And sadly this will sell. Ron sells many high dollar mustangs for WAY too much. He's in with many high dollar individuals.

This is now an outrage thread, $139,995! Seriously?!?, there really needs to be a "Better Business Bureau" of Car Dealerships that regulates, Fines, and takes legal actions against these kind of scam artists.

"The new Super Snake takes as its starting point the 2015 Ford Mustang GT, coupe or convertible. For $49,995 (on top of the cost of the Mustang GT), the standard Super Snake package includes: a supercharger, half-shafts, a short-throw shifter, a 3.73:1 rear axle ratio, and a suspension upgrade all from Ford Performance; staggered-width 20-inch Weld Racing wheels wrapped in Michelin rubber; Wilwood six-piston front brakes; and a Borla exhaust by Ford Racing with Shelby tips."

$38,000 for a Premium GT + $50,000 = $88,000.
$140,000 is a $52,000 mark up! Wow.

Free market. No one is being forced to buy it.

If no one buys at $140k the price will have to come down.

$140k is truly laughable for a bolt on Mustang GT...even with the Shelby badge.

If someone buys for $140k. They will cry when the Shelby GT500 comes out for less.

Eh...not to play devils advocate or anything but it's not really a scam. The price is on the car. Someone comes in, sees the price and says yes I think that is a fair price for the car sitting there.

Is it a stupid decision on the customers part? Yes it sure is but the dealer is doing nothing wrong.

They do this consistently. Selling used GTs for over retail price etc.
