Nah, only mid $50K's. And it runs with the Viper and Vettes, outperforms them even.

At the risk of sounding ignorant... What exactly is this gorgeous Stang?? I assume some aftermarket tuner built it? Not radical enough to be a Saleen, not "green" enough to be Kenny Brown?? what the heck is it??

that bad boy is the FR500! I believe its 415hp all motor, longer wheel base, and various other "enhancements"

Andy, to the best of my recollection (I've got the magazine somewhere) it is/was a concept put together by FRT (Ford Racing Technology). A lot of it was done with parts bin stuff, though I wonder what Ford the magnesium dual intake came from :p

A number of them were built as test 'mules', differences being 5.0 or 5.4L engines. I'll see if I can up my magazines for ya.
