How about $18,400 for a new hood for Shelby KR?

http://www.autoblog.com/2009/09/11/s...b-outrage-eru/

After a lot of very negative feedback from the web, Shelby lowered the price of the hood to $9,700...

Oh, and you have to return the orginal parts! They don't want anything showing up on a V6 Mustang... LOL

You get an exotic car that is expensive to repair. Just like every other exotic car. However, you can't deny it's a badass car.

I thought the GTR was a badass car until their whole Launch Control Scam voiding warrenty. And now without launch control they get 0-60 in 3.4.
Poor first year owners got robbed.
The car seems so damn fragile and is completely automatic. Thats a piss off. I wish they allowed for a manual gearbox no matter how much slower it was.
I rather buy a Z06 and beef it up

Yes it's a very good car for what it does. Still those prices are insane, especially for a $80,000 car.
