Gone in 60 days: Ford Mustang R-Spec sold out despite $100,000 price

Ford dealers are telling customers they have sold out of their allocations of the upcoming Mustang R-Spec – even though the price tops $100,000 by the time it’s in the traffic. The Ford Mustang R-Spec was unveiled in the lead up to the 2019 Bathurst 1000 but dealers were allocated cars within the first 60 days of the announcement. It has taken less than half that time for all examples to be accounted for. Some dealers sold out within 24 hours of informing their customers.
