oh boy, I was searching ebay today to see if any new gt350s popped up and there is an auction to order a new one @ MRSP. Some of the comments were pretty funny. I guess some people can't fathom the idea of paying over MRSP for a vehicle or just don't understand the purpose of the auction.

Q: Dose the car have a problem Sep-23-15
A: There is no issue with the car - This car has not yet been built. The winner of this auction wins the reservation to build and purchase this vehicle to their exact specifications. This auction again is for the Price OVER MSRP and will reserve this vehicle in their name. Since there is only 1 of these vehicle's available in our order allocation, we are looking to find the right buyer for the vehicle. Again the winner will ultimately be responsible for purchasing the vehicle at MSRP once the vehicle has been built. Thanks and please let us know if you have any additional questions. Once again, this auction is not for the vehicle itself - it is for reserving allocation and this auction is for price over MSRP.

Q: Y are u selling the car at a low price Sep-23-15
A: Thanks for your question. This auction is not for the car itself - this is for the 1 and only allocation available to build this vehicle. This is the price over MSRP for the vehicle. So this auction will reserve this 1 new Mustang GT350 build order for the buyer. The auction winner will be responsible for purchasing the vehicle at MSRP after it has been built. Let me know if you have other questions we can answer.

Q: What is the MRSP (STICKER PRICE)? Sep-25-15
A: Hi and thanks for your question. This auction is for OVER MSRP to have this vehicle ordered custom. These vehicle's are being produced in small numbers, so not very many will be built and available. So this auction is not for the actual vehicle purchase. The winner of this auction will be able to have the vehicle ordered specifically for them with the options they choose and will be responsible for purchasing the vehicle at MSRP after the order has been placed and the vehicle has been built. Since the vehicle has not yet been ordered, we do not know what the MSRP is. That will be determined based on the options and how the vehicle get's configured at time of order. The 2016 GT350's have a base starting MSRP of around $47,795. Starting MSRP excludes destination/delivery charge, taxes, title and registration. Optional equipment not included. I hope this information helps.

Q: How fast does that sweet ride go? Sep-25-15
A: I'm not sure exactly how fast it will go. We haven't had one to test out. But I'm sure it's pretty darn fast! It's got 429 lb.-ft. @ 4,750 rpm from the 5.2L FPC V8

Q: Is convertible an option for this ? Sep-25-15
A: Sorry Jeff, No there is not a convertible version of the GT350. Thank you for your question. Let us know how else we can assist. Brian

Right now there are at least three 2016 GT350 Mustangs for sale on eBay. As noted above, the auction amount is not for the car, but rather what the auction winner will pay over the MSRP of the car for the pleasure of getting to purchase one. All three auctions are by Ford dealers. The highest at the moment is $20,100 but the one ending soonest (just 29 minutes from now) just got bid up again a few minutes ago and is at $16,600. The seller is a dealer in Pittston, PA. The lowest one is around $5,600 but that'll probably get bid up.
I've been closely watching the eBay auctions of 350GT's. Probably eight or so USA dealerships had been auctioning the cars at a prices that were an addition to the MSRP for whatever configuration you want to order. For example, if the winning bid was $20,000 and the MSRP was $55,000 for however you wanted the car ordered, you'd pay the dealer a total of $75,000 for the car. These auctions were on there when I checked yesterday, a Saturday. Here we are early Sunday morning and all of those auctions have either been totally removed or reformatted so that the total price is given (rather than the mark-up). This prevents one from ordering their car, optioned the way they want it. In this situation the dealer has to order the car and specify the options so they can establish the base price, then put it out to bid on eBay. The auctions all disappeared so quickly that I have to think Ford forced its dealers into withdrawing them. I'll be at SEMA this coming week and, if I can get any info there, I'll post here.

I went to SEMA and had a nice discussion with one of the Ford Tech reps. He was blown away when I told him that the dealers in AZ/NV were selling GT350's at $20k over and GT350 R's (if they could get one) at DOUBLE list. $10k, non-refundable deposits. I had given up on buying (pissed after selling my mint 50k mile 04 Lightning to raise cash) until I found one on Ebay.
I'm watching eBay real closely and noticing that they are not selling at the $68k and $70k prices that the dealers are asking for. I think the most they're selling for at this point today is at $5-$7k over MSRP.
