Those who want their very own theme-park ride can buy the Shelby GT350 for $58,045; that’s about $22,000 more than a regular Mustang GT without options. The track-focused GT350R costs an extra $7500 but adds aggressive aerodynamics, even more aggressive chassis tuning, and lightweight 19-inch carbon-fiber wheels with wider Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 near-race-spec tires. This stripped-down version saves weight by eliminating the back seat, air conditioning, audio system, and other equipment. The seats can be reinstalled by a dealer, and the rest can be optioned back in with the R Electronics package for $3000.
