Shelby GT500-KR: The Return of the King


We thought with others that the new version of the Ford Mustang, which was presented at the show in New York (including the No. 1 must be sold at auction) would be the convertible version of the GT-H. We were right, while Ford also offers much more for the show in New York: The Return of the King!

The Shelby GT500KR will be built to 1000 copies and will be equipped with a 5.4L V8 compressor expelling 540 hp, 40 more than the GT500 "classic". Racing continues with the key introduction of a carbon cap tube, a shield slightly perforated bottom, the Brembo brake discs that pass 14 "and a modified suspension.


And all for what? To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original model (1968) continues to turn heads (and ears) today. Signs Shelby seats, exclusive badges abound, the band that makes it go faster is raised and exclusive interior also should give the dog the Mustang.

Like its predecessor, the GT500KR (for King of the Road, of course) has been developed in collaboration with Shelby to lend it the spirit of his grandmother. The engine (and the rest) is reviewed by Ford SVT (Special Vehicle Technologies), including lighting, calibration of the accelerator and cooling. the box is a Tremec 6-speed manual while the shifter new study by Ford Racing is shortened.

The car will be available within a year. The 'Bullit' happen next!

About Barrett Jackson Auction, the first Shelby GT500 was party to $ 500,000 without the cost! So you expect them to put on auction also.
