Actually, Shelby used a standard cost formula to calculate the price. Figuring in OEM spec R&D, crash testing, tooling, and manufacturing for such a limited part can get expensive..
The fact tat Shelby only sells these hoods after a thorough review of why someone needs a KR hood, is what keeps them off the streets.
