2008 Shelby GT500KR Mustang
The “King of the Road” version of the GT500 was released as a limited-edition model that began life as a Shelby GT500 Mustang, which was shipped to the Shelby Automobiles facility in Las Vegas, where upfitting to KR status was performed 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 fiber hood.
