Australians were likely dismayed to hear that Ford had no plans of importing the GT500 to the market, but just because Ford wonít doesnít mean no one will.

Mustang Motorsport, a mod-shop from Victoria says it will import the GT500 and convert it to right-hand-drive if new legislation allowing the importation and resale of imported variants of vehicles sold in the market passes.

Thatís a lot of ifs, but the shop tells Cars Guide that if everything goes well, it wants to start importing GT500s in December. Unfortunately, it wonít be cheap.

Aussie Mustang fans will have to be extremely well-heeled to afford the most powerful factory Mustang ever. Mustang Motorsport tells Cars Guide that it expects the cars will cost somewhere between $300,000 and $450,000. How many the shop imports will depend on how many orders it takes.

Mustang Motorsport has said that the GT500 was too thoroughly reengineered to simply reproduce, hence the enormous effort of importing the car. If, however, you want something with similar power, right-hand-drive, and a manual instead of the GT500ís dual-clutch, Ford Performance has you covered with the R-Spec, which we covered last week.

I am sorry, but there isn't a Ford worth 450K... I am a die hard Ford guy who has owned a lot of Mustangs and say that... I have a hard time believe a GT Premium pretty much optioned out is worth anywhere close to 50K. The car market is about to bust just like the housing market did...

(I have owned a few non Mustang cars over the years as well, but always try to have a Mustang with it or come quickly back to a Mustang!)
