Mustang GT-R? What is it?

A dealer by my house is selling a Mustang GT-R Regency.

This thing was sweet looking from what I could see in the tiny pic. 20inch Foose Wheels, it had 6K miles was an 07 and they wanted $23,000. I've seen Regular GTs with those miles and nice rims going for close to that. Is that what this is? Plus the "R" Badging?

Is there anything special about this version? Performance wise? Is it worth the price? How rare are they?

Thanks for any help.

In the mustang world, R stands for Rice. They arent as 'riced' out as they used to be and a lot of them are clones but the GT R is just a package for the GTs that comes with bigger wheel, hood school and sometimes a large spoiler. I dont believe the mechanics are any different than a GTs.

The pic was about as small as those A Stang Thing, so I couldn't really see it very well, but I know it didn't have that spoiler on it(thank god) and the hood was the same color as the rest of the car, but there was a scoop on it. Looked like Foose Legend wheels which I think are the nicest wheels I've ever seen.

Was this a Ford release? Or did dealers offer this?

Never a option for S197's this is just Bull Sh!t. It was only a media prelude to the GT500.

Really... that is why my dealership sold 2 of them. How can you state something like that without knowing what you are talking about.

Nice Bkid.

So is this a regular GT (performance wise?)

Is it worth the $23K (basically $8K more than I paid for mine?)for an 07 with 6K miles?

That is a matter of taste, Yes the paint from Lamborghini sure is nice. The roof I am not sure that I would own a all glass roof,being that I like drag racing. Nice for a date with a hottie though. LOL. I like the cars ,but there more for show than go. We put the Bullit Intake on the ones we sold here at Don Chalmers Ford. That was a customer request though. Some people just like that little extra. The car did come with the custom exhuast package with the stainless steel end caps.SO it sounded good,yet really was not that fast.Those 20 inch tires slowed it down also.

Okay thanks for the info. I'll keep mine. I googled it and another fourm popped up where a poster said that it had 440hp and was s/c'd. I kinda knew that could not be the case considering that it wasn't as much $$$ as the Shelby GTs (or even regular GTs) I've seen.

Again thanks.

Just a heads up on these cars there has been issues with the glass roof leaking. Yea ..there is no supercharger on these from the factory.

I'm keeping mine. And I would never buy a car with a glass roof that I planned to use for a DD! One more reason I love my Mustang? No sun/moon roof

Thanks for the info about the cars that don't exsist. lol

LOL, your friend got screwed if he thought he was buying a real GTR when it was only a press release vehicle, unless he got the only one, which in that case has no vin and can't be licensed, it never was a offical Ford product, show me a real Ford sanctioned and issued GTR not a dealer made up version please. If your thinking along the lines of a Boss Shinoda or Foose or Boyd Coddington then it doesnt count. I could slap a bunch of parts together and call it a Boss 429, it doesnt make it legit. I'm not trying to be mean, just informative. If you can show me and the world proof please do.

Did you miss the post above. LOL GT REGENCY is the only GT made from the factory that qualifies for the criteria of a GT-R (Regency).
This is what the OP was asking.

I was answering the GT-R part, not about the GT-R Regency, a simple google search would give all the answers needed. I think we got our wires crossed
