The GT500KR price tag

Do you ever think that the KR will ever depreciate in value enough for it to become affordable some day in the future? I sure hope so because man do I want one. I see them on Ebay all the time and the buy it now prices have dramatically fallen since it first came but even still it's a little bit to far out of reach.



Engine: RGR 326ci shortblock - RGR Stage 2 Heads - RGR Custom Grind Cams - Cobra Jet Intake Manifold - Ford Racing Monoblade Throttle Body - JLT Cobra Jet CAI
Front Suspension: BMR K-Member - BMR A-Arms - BMR A-Arm Support Bar - BMR Radiator Support - Ford Racing Boss 302R Steering Rack
Rear Suspension: BMR Adjustable Lower Control Arms
Exhaust: Kooks 1 7/8ths Long Tubes - Kooks Green Cats H-Pipe, Kooks Boss Side Pipes, JPC Racing over axle pipes - Ford Racing SVT Sport Mufflers

That's impossible. That's less than half of MSRP. If that's the case where is your local dealership located? I'll buy everyone they can get their hands on.

Sticker is close to 80K
most are new , untitled
so don't expect much less than 75-77K
unless you start seeing used ones
with 5k miles.
Eventually as the miles pile on they'll drop
to 60's , 50's 40;s
espcially since the new Gt500 has the same
power , miles better interior AND you can get it
in a convertible.

White GT500 Vert / Blue Stripes- I'm waiting.....

I agree. In my opinion they won't come down much below MSRP...not on a new one anyways. On a used one that may be a different story. Time will tell. It's so hard to tell with the economy like it is right now.

My local dealership where I get my oil done had KR in stock on the showroom floor along with a GT500 and 2010 Black Mustang GT. The KR & GT500 were both red w/white stripes. The GT500 was $52,000 and teh KR was $82,000. The KR only had 18" rims...I thought they came with 20s. Anyways the price of the KR definitely made the price of the new GT look like that of an economy car. I don't think the prices on these cars will ever go down. I think people are relieved at the moment that a normal GT500 and possibly some KRs can be had without ridiculous dealer mark up.

For Play: 2011 Ford Mustang v6 Premium Coupe w/Pony Package. Stock...for now.

For Work: 2011 Hyundai Sonata SE. The fun daily driver.

The KR's come with 18's and the Super Snakes come with 20's.
