Would you Pay $200,000 for a Mustang?

Maybe if it the seats were lined with gold. Maybe if Caroll Shelby himself hand stitched his name the headrests. Maybe if it came with Sofia Vergara in the passenger seat (That's unrealistic? Fine. A lookalike would be cool too). Maybe if it was a Transformer. That's what it would take for me to pony up $200,000 for a convertible Mustang.

This ebay seller is hoping your standards are lower than mine. I've Gotta admit though, the car is pretty impressive.

5.0 Mustang Magazine featured the car in a four page spread. Under that Shelby Super Snake Hood is a fully built 5.8 liter, cast V8. A 3.6-liter Kenne Belle supercharger sits on top forcing the total output to 1000 horsepower. Yes, it is a beast. And yes, you'll probably have to install a proper roll bar if you ever want to go to a drag strip.

I have no doubts that this is an exceptionally nice car, but that price hike is huge. Heck, even a regular Super Snake costs around $100,000. I'm sure the wheels and suspension and other mods are really high quality and everything... but why?

Apparently someone out there sees an answer. Current bids are hovering at $230,000. Head over to eBay if you're interested.

Steven Dumont (Tue, 08 Oct 2013 12:24:51 -0700): Good luck with that. The Mustang is an awesome car but you got to be an idiot to drop that much coin on a car that can be better spent on building the car yourself, the way you want it for much less
James Pagliaro (Tue, 08 Oct 2013 13:16:14 -0700): Ummm.......I don't think so, unless of course it could take off and land. Now that might gain my interest.
(Tue, 08 Oct 2013 13:56:30 -0700): I have a GT/CS and this is NOT impressive to me at all. Maybe to a MORON or kid?!
Micah Cody (Tue, 08 Oct 2013 14:12:24 -0700): $230,000 for a $65,000 Shelby Cobra with an $8,000 supercharger??!!
Scott Adams (Tue, 08 Oct 2013 14:23:05 -0700): Craziness.... I wouldn't even pay $5000 for a mustang with $3500 supercharger....lmao!
Sean Donaghey (Tue, 08 Oct 2013 14:43:56 -0700): $230,100 and the reserve hasn't been met yet? What is this person thinking of?
Joe Walleck (Tue, 08 Oct 2013 16:25:00 -0700): Sounds like a couple of idiots if they got the bid up to $230,100.
Sean Donaghey (Tue, 08 Oct 2013 18:08:43 -0700): I just noticed that a lot of the wording on the eBay page is taken directly from the 2013-14 Shelby 1000 brochure. They are plagiaring Shelby's description of the 1000!
Michael Brunelle (Tue, 08 Oct 2013 19:24:35 -0700): Sounds like the owner is breathing in too much Nos!
Michael Fournier (Thu, 10 Oct 2013 12:30:53 -0700): Well nice car and maybe worth close to 6 figures But not $200,000? there are a lot of other cars that could be had for that money that are much nicer AND a much better investment. And you could have a 1000hp mustang for a lot less then that if your willing to get your hands dirty and mod it yourself. Problem with modded cars is, just because it cost X to add the mods on top of the original purchase price of the car does not mean the sum of the parts is worth what you spent plus the man hours when your done. It is often a zero sum gain if not a loss. If someone has already bid over $200K then close the deal buddy your already getting more then its worth.
Michael Fournier (Fri, 01 Nov 2013 07:55:24 -0700): And you know this how? Were you there when they put it on the dyno? I have seen plenty of Super charged Shelby's break the 1000hp at the rear wheels. So there is no reason this one can't be. (still not worth 200K)
Michael Fournier (Fri, 01 Nov 2013 07:56:46 -0700): no not the owner those bidding on it are though.
