2009 Mustang Shelby GT500KR (1 of 236 with 6,387 Miles)
The name Carroll Shelby has and will never be taken lightly in the world of automotive racing and performance. The man's name alone is a staple of quality no matter what automotive brand he was partnered with - but when it comes to true performance on the road or on the track - there is no better combination than Carroll Shelby and Ford Motor Company. The Shelby GT500KR was born in 1968, the model was equipped with the famed Cobra 428 cubic inch V8, and labeled as the King of the Road because of this. The KR nameplate was revived in 2008, and produced yet again in 2009 (but both being the same car). Both of these models toted a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 kicking out around 540 horsepower to a 6-speed manual transmission and finally making its way to the ground via a 3.73 rear end. The King of the Road package had a couple of cosmetic updates over the normal Shelby as well including a composite hood with pins, and unique badging. Performance wise, the GT500KR packed around 40 more horsepower and 30 more lb/ft of torque, and contained updated race tuned suspension. SVT took matters into their own hands when it came to engineering this car for speed. This was not meant to be a comfortable car by any means and Ford's performance division made that clear. This is strictly a driver's car - it's there for the pleasure of swinging into corners or ripping down a track, the KR package turns this Mustang into a well-balanced sports car, not a Pony car or Muscle car but a sports car - suited not only for straight line speed, but really any type of adrenaline pumping driving. This was one of the only 236 of these cars that were built in black. A rare Mustang deserves to be driven how it was intended, but this one only has 6,387 miles on the odometer and is in absolutely fantastic original condition.
