Why Racing Stripes Cost $10,000 on the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Want to inflate*the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500's $73,995 base price by 14 percent with only one option? Buy the optional painted-on racing stripes, of course! They cost $10,000, which seems, um, decadent for a non-performance-enhancing feature on a pony car's option sheet.

But wait, you might be asking: What's the going rate for factory-applied stripes these days? The GT500's option sheet provides insight by way of its available stick-on vinyl stripes, which run $1000. On the less powerful*GT350, those same vinyl stripes cost $495. Curious what the 1000 percent markup for the GT500's painted-on versions was all about, we reached out to Ford for clarification.

Apparently, the stripes are hand painted onto GT500s so ordered. Per a company spokesperson, the stripe job is "hand-prepped, painted, and then clear-coated." He adds that "Due to the specialized nature of the process, [Ford has] a very limited production capacity." Indeed.

Even though we've yet to experience these hand-painted stripes firsthand, we can say that stripe aficionados shouldn't dismiss their $10,000 price out of hand. Being integral with the car's paint job, the stripes shouldn't peel or start to come off, as those cheaper vinyl ones did on our*2017 Mustang Shelby GT350 test car. (The decals began forming bubbles beneath their surfaces and peeling up at their edges after less than a year.) Granted, that car lived in salty, harsh Michigan—but so does the Ford Motor Company. Our point, besides still feeling salty over our GT350's failed stripes? Get the painted-on stripes if you seek racing-stripe object permanence. They're available in the same colors as the vinyl pieces: black, blue, or white.

That used to be me bro, I slowed it down tho. sh*t just burns unnecessary gas and get u harassed by the cops even when your not speeding. Had to constantly switch up my work route because the cops knew my whip and would pull me over everytime they saw me. Nothing like zooming past a mf with a v8 tho, that sh*t really pisses people off for some reason.

word. I can go past people and I'm going the speed limit, but they get all fussy because of the v8 exhaust note. To be honest though, I wouldn't mind swapping a Tesla drivetrain into a Chevelle SS

I saw an article and someone from Ford or their marketing team said it was offered because of the looks of the vinyl compared to painting them.

Their justification is that because the vinyl stripes don't look as nice and they have gaps where they start and finish when applied.

Here's a thought. Just fix that and save everyone time and money. If people can wrap a whole car with no gaps/seems then fu*king Ford can manage to install the stripes correctly.

Also, you'd be an idiot to get this option, you'll never get any benefit from it, the depreciation will wipe it out.

They drive like that because they're amateurs
