We'd normally lay down rose petals ahead of Carroll Shelby's storied boots any day of the week, but this latest "special" edition 500 HP Mustang isn't exactly lighting our pants on fire, especially considering the price. At $33,995 for the upgrade, the GT350 45th's anniversary car is a helluva lot of cheese to ask for a body kit, wheels, a supercharger, Baer brakes, a Borla exhaust and Ford Racing suspension bits. The stock Mustang ain't no joke in it's own right so charging double the price for some extra doo-dads is an awfully tall order.
