Thanks to innovative fans and creative designers, our cars continue to become more sophisticated, more polished and more refined. One of those fans, a Texan by the name of Carroll Shelby, spent most of his life building a well-deserved reputation for serious performance and record setting speed. And even at the fiery age of 89, he was STILL inspiring enthusiasts to push their creations to the point of borderline unbelievable. It seems only fitting that Ford and Shelby American would eventually renew their decades abandoned push to dominate the performance car world. And this supercharged 67-mile GT500KR, one of only 1,011 produced in 2008, is a perfect example of why that partnership is a match made in heaven. Want some cool and exclusive muscle that's poised to gain value? This impressive, showroom-fresh coupe is exactly what you've been waiting for!

FORD BLACK WITH SHELBY FLASH

One of only 328 2008 GT500KRs produced in Ford Black 2-stage with monochromatic Shelby stripes, this spotless Mustang has spent the majority of its life parked in dry storage. And thanks to a noted aversion to water and heat, the car maintains factory-fresh aesthetics that would be right at home in a dealer's showroom. Always a southern car, this Mustang met its first, Texas-based owner through Cheraw, South Carolina's Griffin Ford. The second and present owner, a resident of lower Virginia, purchased the car in October of 2013, only to drive it around his block once a week before finally applying for a Title in August of 2019. The reasoning behind that application: to clear his garage for a 2020 Shelby GT500.

Because the GT500KR package carried a hefty premium, Dearborn designers focused on creating a nouveau icon that looks tailored and substantial in comparison to 'lesser' competitors. At the front of the car, a familiar Mustang grille hangs an offset Cobra emblem between pristine headlights, a carbon fiber splitter and a sculpted valance that's complete with traditional fog lamps. At the top of that grille, a pinned Super Snake hood centers broad “S H E L B Y” lettering in front of color-keyed heat extractors and factory glass. At the base of that glass, Satin Black rockers anchor tough Shelby emblems under carbon-capped mirrors. And behind of those mirrors, a correct standard-issue spoiler joins an aggressive Shelby splitter to frame clean taillights, a bold “S H E L B Y” trunk script and a Super Snake-exclusive faux fuel filler.

MOD MOTOR MOJO

The reborn GT500 celebrated one of the most successful partnerships in performance car history. Take a look under this KR's carbon fiber hood and you'll find a supercharged 'mod motor' that was heavily influenced by Ford's first GT super car. And what's better: by utilizing a cast iron block, aluminum heads, forged internals and dual overhead camshafts, this rowdy torque monster makes great power while mixing surprising efficiency with a docile nature. Twist the key and the big V8 rumbles to life, breathing through a Ford Racing Cold Air Kit, a Shelby H-pipe and throaty Ford Racing mufflers. Goose the throttle to engage a roots-style supercharger that, with the help of Pro-Cal Performance Calibration, creates a hearty 540 horsepower. Deliver one serious jab to the go-pedal, and you'll find out why dictionaries are starting to list the name “Carroll Shelby” under the word “performance”. Aesthetically, this Ford's spotless bay looks assembly line-fresh, eschewing the kind flash you'd expect from such a pedigreed car for, dare I say, a bit of a 'sleeper' vibe. But to anyone who knows anything about performance, the big blower, subtle Shelby badging, machined Shelby caps and silver “POWERED BY SVT” cam covers are a dead giveaway that they're looking at something real special!

NOT EVEN DIRTY

As most performance car fans already know, this Mustang's SVT-tuned chassis is nothing short of excellent. Behind the smooth engine, a slick-shifting Tremec TR6060 6-speed spins power to an 8.8-inch limited-slip axle that's fitted with big, 3.73 gears. At the corners of the car, power-assisted Brembo calipers join power-assisted Ford calipers in squeezing big, vented rotors. Turns come courtesy of Ford's super-efficient power rack-and-pinion steering. Naturally, Ford's standard ABS and traction control systems are present and accounted for. And all this first class agility rides on forged Shelby kicks, which twist 255/45ZR18 Goodyear Eagle F1s in front of 285/40ZR18 Goodyear Eagle F1s.

FORD BLACK WITH SHELBY FLASH, TOO

Inside this Ford, bolstered, Shelby-branded seats, which feature standard power adjustment for the car's driver, ride opposite a monochromatic, leather-wrapped steering wheel that's adorned with convenient thumb buttons. The dash is a familiar Mustang layout, which frames a small Shelby plaque and satin-trimmed instrumentation. Below that dash, an optional Shaker 1000 stereo combines MP3 compatibility with a 6-disc CD changer. Below that stereo, a Ford Racing Short-Throw Shifter leads an impressive console that, like the aforementioned steering wheel, is detailed in red French Stitching. And naturally, all the luxuries you'd expect in a high dollar modern car are ready and waiting, including cruise control, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors and Remote Keyless Entry.

Even without its natural exclusivity, this hot coupe would satisfy virtually any performance enthusiast. With plenty of power and nearly universal appeal, it's hard to think of a more desirable modern pony car. Add in the Shelby name and exceptionally low mileage, and this thoroughbred starts looking like a great investment. Want to own a showroom-fresh copy of one of the baddest Mustangs ever assembled? Don't miss your chance to claim this awesome GT500KR!
