well its not a 100% standard GT... the hook is that you probably need to get the vin and then contact Shinoda to see if it is a car built by them, or if its a guy who added shinoda parts. think of shinoda as steeda or saleen, but they just build cars periodically, and always have parts for sale. See this link for an explanation of the build levels in case you are interested or visit their actual site here.

still probably not worth it, but at least there i a possibility its more than just stickers

Since Ford didn't make any Boss mustangs there were a number of 3rd parties that made their own versions of the Boss Mustang. So basically, all the Boss's between 2005 and 2010 were more aftermarket tribute cars than anything else, Ford didn't make any Boss's until the new 5.0 came out since the S197's were released. This particular version had many different stages, the cheaper stages included appearance upgrades (interior and exterior), while the more expensive stages including power and suspension upgrades. I'm not showing that the one linked in the OP's post had any upgrades other than appearance and interior changes, other than a upgraded shifter.

For more info on the Team Shinoda version of the Boss Mustang.....


I just wanted to bring this up since nobody is actually claiming it's a Ford generated Boss Mustang
