Along with the other 2013 Mustang models soon to hit showrooms, the 650 horsepower Shelby GT-500 configurator has hit the Ford website. You can now build your own virtual Shelby GT-500 in all available color and option combinations.
Additionally, you can get the full lowdown on pricing which has crept up for 2013. Given the new 650 horsepower 5.8 liter DOHC supercharged engine, that should come as no surprise. But try and get a less expensive 650 horsepower car, we dare you.
The configurator shows of course the full color palette available for the 2013 GT-500. New colors for the 2013 GT-500 are Deep Impact Blue and Candy Red. Gotta Have It Green and School Bus Yellow are not available on the GT-500. All other colors are carryover from 2012.
There are plenty of other interesting options for the fastest factory Mustang ever created, including the expected Sync infotainment technologies, a voice-activated navigation system and a three-subwoofer Shaker Pro audio system.
Those looking for some added sportiness inside the cabin can opt for a color-coordinated pair (black and blue in the case of our config) of front Recaro seats for an extra $1,595. Sounds like money well-spent.
For those wishing to check every option available for the car, including a Shelby-branded car cover, the most-expensive 2013 Shelby GT500 hardtop will waltz off the factory floor with a $66,485 window sticker.
On the other side of the equation, even a base $54,200 (*plus $795 for destination) car will come equipped with the supercharged 5.8-liter V8 capable of hurtling the GT500 to a terminal velocity of a bit over 200 miles per hour. Performance bargain, anyone?
