Mustang GT500KR vs 2010 SS

http://www.spokentorque.com/forums/s...ead.php?t=1517

I bet a $20k Mustang hood is faster than a $1500 Camaro SS hood. x infinity

ridiculous for insurance purposes, great for collectors that they are keeping their OE parts that ridiculously high, basically you can never make a KR out of REAL parts...

poor guy :/

Just to clarify, this is a 2008/9 Kr. No 2010's have been built yet which is the new body. As for an update, the new price of the hood is supposed to be $9700. Some speculate that price does not include markup or shipping but it is still pretty steep for a hood. There are some 09's new at dealers marked down to $60k. It would be insane to pay over 30k for a hood on a 60k car.....

I would like to see a cost comparison on some other OEM carbon fiber hoods.

you are not paying for the actual hood material sir.

if you have a KR and you heard that people can get your official OEM KR parts and build a kr for half the price, what would you do? shelby doesn't do this because they are money hungry, they do it so YOU CANNOT MAKE A KR OUT OF REAL OEM PARTS. I hope this makes sense.

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.

I agree. The insurance company will refuse to insure, you won't get a loan.. etc.

Thats laughable at best. If i owned a KR after reading that i would never take it out of my garage lol. On top of that those new 2010 GT500's are total rust buckets coming from the factory. Epic fail in every way.
