2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR Mustang
The “King of the Road” version of the GT500 was released as a limited-edition model that began life as a top of the line GT500 Mustang, it was then shipped to the Shelby Automobiles facility in Las Vegas, where Shelby did what Shelby does and stripped and rebuilt the GT500 to GT500-KR status before being shipped to the selling dealer. The Ford SVT-engineered 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 was enhanced with a Ford Racing Power Upgrade Pack to boost horsepower to 540 and torque to 510 foot-pounds. The added power came via revised ignition and air/fuel calibration, a throaty Ford Racing-inspired dual exhaust and a cold-air intake system that was specially designed to mate perfectly against the KR’s unique carbon fibre hood. In a nut shell Shelby took a bad arse Mustang and turned it into a weapon before handing it back to Ford… This particular car in number 836 and was shipped to Australia and RHD converted by Mustang Motorsport, it is a 2 owner car and only just come out of a very exclusive collection and has a mere 4,968 miles on the clock with the factory Shelby floor mats still in there original protective packaging on the floor. Currently on full NSW registration. Priced to be by far the cheapest GT500KR on the market and has to be the best.
