If you wanna get your hands on the high-high-powered 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, you’re gonna hafta pony up for the ponies. Ford has confirmed that the 760-horsepower Shelby GT500 will start at $73,995, including the $1,095 destination fee and the $2,600 gas-guzzler tax.

So, I guess what Ford’s saying then is that the Shelby GT500 is not going to be super efficient? That’s a deal-breaker, Ford. When I sign up for the most powerful street-legal Ford ever made, capable of a mid-three-second 0-60 mph sprint and a sub-11-second quarter-mile, I also expect something economical and fuel-efficient.

The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 stands to set you back a pretty penny, but it’s well worth it if you’re a performance aficionado. If you want to level it up even more, you can opt for the Carbon Fiber Track Package, which deletes the rear seat and adds 20-inch carbon fiber wheels with rear wheels that are a half-inch wider, super-grippy Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, splitter wickers with integrated dive plane, and an adjustable exposed carbon fiber GT4 track wing. That’ll add $18,500 on your tab, bringing the Shelby GT500 to a cool $92,495 before Uncle Sam kicks in.

More, you say? Sure, why not. For an additional $1,500, you can get the Handling Package, which includes strut top mounts and a Gurney flap spoiler. Another $3,000 gets you the Technology Package which includes a B&O PLAY sound system, Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert, and a welcome puddle light featuring the iconic Shelby snake logo. Paint options and exterior alterations like a black roof or sport stripes go for $695 each, and a carbon-fiber instrument panel sets you back another $1,000.

The end result? If you get the maxed out 2020 Shelby GT500, you’re looking at a six-figure Mustang. Whew! Here’s looking forward to when Ford launches the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 configurator.
