The already exorbitantly priced Shelby GT500 can be made more so with the GT500 Premium Interior Trim package ($595; wrapped and stitched instrument-panel brow and center console, upgrade armrests, auto-dimming rearview mirror with digital compass, aluminum pedal covers), a DVD touch-screen nav system ($1995), a 10-speaker AM/FM audio with 6-disc in-dash changer and MP3 compatibility ($1295), HID headlights ($525); and a superfluous vehicle cover with Shelby script and Cobra logo ($375).
