The 2021 Ford Mustang family is set to roll out very soon, and we expect the official Ford build and price configurator to reflect that any day now. However, if you’re keen on getting a 2021 Mustang, perhaps the new Mustang Mach 1, you can contact your local Ford dealer to get the process started. Just as well, you can order the 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 with the new Carbon Fiber Handling Package, as revealed in the official order guide. And, according to a customer order form shared with MC&T by a reader, the 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Carbon Fiber Handling Package is priced at $10,000 USD.
Details on the 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Carbon Fiber Handling Package
The 2021 Shelby GT500 Carbon Fiber Handling Package will include 20-inch carbon fiber wheels that are painted black, new-for-2021 adjustable strut top mounts, a catch can, a Gurney flap in the rear, splitter wickers and a wheel locking kit. Unlike the $18,500 Carbon Fiber Track Package available on the S550 Mustang Shelby GT500, the rear seats stay in place, as do the standard Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. The Track Pack gets the might Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2, which is supremely effective at lateral grip traction, but not as good at forward acceleration. Exposed carbon fiber wheels, instrument panel, and massive GT4 carbon fiber wing remain exclusive to the 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Carbon Fiber Track Package, as well.

Along with the 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Carbon Fiber Handling Package, the new model year will also unlock new color options to choose from. More specifically, Antimatter Blue Metallic, Carbonized Gray Metallic, and Grabber Yellow will be joining the paint palette for the top-tier Ford Mustang. While new colors are always welcome, four colors have also been removed from the GT500: Grabber Lime, Kona Blue, Magnetic, and Wimbledon White.
The addition of the Ford Mustang Mach 1 to the lineup, the end of the S550 Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R, and the deletion of the Mustang GT Performance Pack 2 reflect the most significant changes of the 2021 model year. The 2021 Mustang Mach 1 will offer both a 10-speed automatic and six speed manual, in addition to its own handling package. The 2021 Mustang Mach 1 will price priced from $51,720, plus $1,195 destination and delivery charge. This effectively splits the difference between the outgoing Mustang Bullitt that stickered at $46,705 and the beloved Mustang Shelby GT350, which carried an MSRP of $59,140.
