I'm thinking about buying a used 281sc LOCATED HERE
But...if you call they say that is tha price after 30% is paid in cash. so total cost they said would be $43,995. WHat do you think?
My opinion is that the GT500 will be going for sticker very soon. With the new Boss and other special edition Mustangs coming as well as the new engine, the GT500 will not have even close to the same demand it has today. I am waiting to see what changes are made to the 2008 and will either try to get a Boss or GT500 later in 2007. For the same price, I would take the Saleen.
The Saleen has race suspension components, a twin-screw blower, the 'wow' factor - sans the Shelby name, increased rarity if you look at 281e build numbers, more options - including a glass roof on coupes, and higher pricetag. Initial reports show better 1/4 mile performance, probably due to slight weight advantage on the Saleen.
Saleen S281e price = 60-70k depending on options and convertable. The Shelby price is approaching that with dealer mark-ups.
I like both, but pose the question to see what everyone else thinks.
Late to the party, but the price is off. The coupe starts at $74,541 with NO options. I was looking at two before purchasing the Shelby, one stickered $79k and the other $81k
