33k on top of 35k base? I would take a regular gt500 for that price, looks sharp though.

Default affordibility

Affordibility is one of the greatest factors of a Mustang. For 70 grand I'll take a 2011 gt and a nice lincoln suv.

The body kit is cool, what about the huge blind spot behind the C pillar with that window blocked out?

When the GT500 came out, i said that they should do a GT350. I did my own thing to my 05GT in 06 with lower GT350 side stripes and such, though everyone asked if it was a GT500. But that's way to expensive and most of that you are paying for is the name on it. I'll Pass.

The standard GT350 package adds $33,995 to the base price of the Mustang GT. For that cash, you get a Shelby Ford Racing Whipple Supercharger, racing suspension with a caster/camber plate, upgraded and duct-cooled brakes and Cragar 19-inch wheels wrapped in Goodyear tires.

The makeover also includes body modifications front, back and sides, Guardsman Blue vinyl stripes, a reworked interior and enough Shelby badges to make sure your Mustang’s pedigree is never mistaken.

This stuff would cost at least $20,000 to add plus time and trouble. So it is not as bad a deal as some suggest. Plus you have a limited edition and Shelby name so it is something that could be "collectible".

I would just add a Kenne Bell supercharger for power and upgrade the brakes, suspension and wheels and tires with my own mechanic. Which is what I am doing at a cost of $15,000 or so... The supercharger will be the last thing I add as it will make engine warranty claims much harder to make...

The GT350 is a great looking Mustang and I bet it is awesome to drive, but the price tag is something will definitely keep my from this vehicle. The sad things is, it will also prevent alot of other people from driving this nice looking Mustang.

I'm going to stick with the 2012 Mustang GT Premium I am going to be ordering. That I can afford!
