Shelby GT500KR priced near $80,000:

There's nothing low-key about the 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR--including its price--which will be about $80,000 when the remake of the 1968 classic arrives in showrooms later this month.

$80K? Are you friggin kiddin me? LOL

For $15K less you can have an equally powerful, just as fast, and way way more refined Cadillac CTS-V.

Or for $7K less you can have a much lighter and much faster Corvette Z06.

The Shelby (rebadged mustang) crowd go crazy over these cars. The resale is also crazy high for the newer Shelby cars. Tons of Shelby fans and only a smallish number of cars.

The Saleen and Roush are no where near the Shelby in resale either.

I guess it isn't about what else you like, Mustang guys will be all over it. Chevy guys usually opt for the Corvette etc

Great looking car, $80K cool? Not sure
