THE SHELBY GT500 KR

Built to commemorate 40th anniversary of the very first GT500KRs, the 2008 edition was again a collaboration between the blue oval and Carroll Shelby's team of engineers. These vehicles would begin life as ordinary GT500s before being shipped to the Shelby Automobiles facility in Las Vegas where they were fitted with a myriad of performance parts and tuned. A revision of the ignition and air/fuel calibration in conjunction with a dual exhaust system and cold air intake gave rise to a 40 horsepower increase over the standard model to a grand total of 540hp. Straight out of the Ford Racing parts bin, dampers, stabilizer bars, and a strut tower brace replaced the standard equipment and the whole package was tuned by the company's own Special Vehicles Team. A low 4 second 0-60 time and a mid-12 second quarter mile time makes the "King of the Road" title a well deserved one.

Aesthetically, many of the cosmetic additions drew inspiration from the original Kings of the Road, albeit with more modern details. With twin nostrils and twist lock pins, the hood shares a resemblance to its forefather, but carbon fiber construction saves 15 pounds over the standard aluminum unit, bringing this pony car into the 21st century. The periodic table's 6th element can be further found being utilized in the mirror caps and front splitter. Lastly, 18" Shelby Alcoa alloy wheels wrapped in a KR specific Goodyear F1 tire compound allow the Mustang to pull a full G of steady state cornering force.

THE SHELBY GT500 KR

The GT500KR on offer was gifted to Carroll Shelby at his 85th birthday bash and wears the unique CMS number "JAN112008", representing his birthday. The car has remained in Carroll's personal collection from new and is finished in Ebony Black with satin Ebony Stipes. Of the 1,011 GT500KRs produced during the 2008 model year, only 328 were completed in this color combination. Over the last 10 years, the car has traveled fewer than 150 miles, leaving it in phenomenal condition. The KR is accompanied by a Shelby vehicle authenticity certificate certifying that the car was owned by Carroll Shelby, in addition to a photograph of Carroll with the car at his birthday bash.
