Official pricing information for the 2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang has yet to be announced nearly four months since the muscle car broke cover at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. But a new leak divulges pricing details for some of the vehicle’s options. The info comes via the Mustang6G forum, which lists prices for a handful of options for both the GT350 and the more track-focused 2016 GT350R.

As it turns out, Ford will be offering a pair of pricey packages for the GT350. The Tech Package will fetch $7,500, while the Track Package will add $6,500 to the base price. The leak doesn’t say what those packages may include. Other options for the GT350 include a navigation system for $795, a black-painted roof for $695, and over-the-top stripes for $475. The Triple Yellow paint will cost $495, as probably will all optional exterior colors.

As for the GT350R, the R Package update will add $3,500 to the GT350’s base price, while the SVT Touring Package will extract a further $3,000 out of the buyer’s wallet. The navigation, black roof and stripes will cost the same as the GT350’s.

While the base price for both cars is still a mystery, we already know Ford will only build 100 GT350s and 37 GT350Rs for the 2015 model year. Both limited runs are created to celebrate 50 years since Carroll Shelby created the original Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R back in 1965.

Why it matters

With Shelby brand manager Jim Owens having claimed the GT350 will be a "relative performance value" a while back, I expect the base price to sit anywhere between $45,000 and $50,000. That said, a well-equipped GT350 could easily fetch in excess of $55K, while a similar GT350R would require a check of at least $65,000. Not exactly cheap, but definitely more affordable than the Chevy Camaro Z/28.

On the other hand, the info in this leak is a bit confusing, particularly because the pre-order guide hinted that the navigation system was part of the Technology Package and not a stand-alone option. There is the possibility Ford decided to allow customers to get the larger navigation screen with the Track Package, which would be great news for potential buyers complaining about not being able to do that.
