2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Mark Up Tops $100,000

Crazy dealer markup brings this Shelby GT500's sticky to $206,000

  • Orange County Ford dealership marks up Shelby GT500 to over $200k US


Mark ups are nothing new and have been around for a long time on popular, limited-availability cars. The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 certainly qualifies as car susceptible to a mark up, but there are limits.

Or not. According to YouTuber Speed Phenom, there’s a dealership in Orange County, California that has a Mustang Shelby GT500 for sale for an astonishing $206,000 US. That’s $125,000 over the base price for a Shelby GT500, and $100,000 over this particular highly-spec’d unit priced at $105,000.

This isn’t the first time that Speed Phenom has noticed mark ups on the Shelby GT500, but his one certainly takes the cake.

To put this price in perspective, it’s $2,500 more than a brand-new Porsche 911 Turbo S coupe in the US. Heck, at that price you’re not far off getting a 1967 Mustang Eleanor.

You have to wonder if the dealer is doing this for some free publicity. Mark ups tend to get a lot of coverage, and of course this article proves we’re just as guilty of that as any other media.

We also understand that there is a ton of money in Southern California, but we can’t imagine anyone paying $206,000 for a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Especially since there are a handful of other GT500 Shelbys for sale across the US for a lot less money.
