2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is one of the most competitive cars in its class and Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will need to come with some miracle to topple the output that comes with this model. It is definitely not affordable, the base version without any additional packages can be bought for $53,000, and extra Tech package that comes with numerous interior commodities adds up $3,000 on the overall price. Release date of this vehicle is still unknown, but we believe it is going to come out before the end of the year.
