The 2008 Shelby GT500 KR or "King of the Road" was a limited edition run of 1011 cars in total produced to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the 1968 Shelby GT500 KR. Each KR started life in standard GT500 spec as a baseline which was upgraded to a KR spec before being sent to the dealer for sale new. It was not possible to convert a standard car to a KR spec after sale like is offered with the super snake cars, instead, all of the KR's were built that way by Shelby from new. 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 510 foot-pounds of torque. The added power came via a revised ignition and air/fuel calibration, a Ford Racing-inspired dual exhaust and a cold-air intake system that was specially designed to work perfectly in conjunction with the KR's unique carbon fiber hood. The transmission is the original 6 speed Tremec manual item because we all know real driver's cars have three pedals. All of this equated to a claimed 0-60 mph time of 4.3 second and the standing quarter mile in 12.5 seconds.
This example is in near perfect condition and would suit even a fussy collector having travelled just 3,600kms from new. The car is a little unique to see in the red and white with only 107 produced in this colour scheme. The car was imported to Australia in 2011 and professionally converted to right hand drive by Autosmith here on the Gold Coast. Excluding the RHD conversion, the car is completely stock without any modifications.
Some of the standard KR features include; Shelby bodykit and striping, carbon fiber hood with functional intakes, carbon front splitter, carbon mirror caps, SVT Tuned suspension, short throw shifter, 18" forged aluminium GT500KR wheels, Brembo disk brakes, ABS, traction control and remote keyless entry. The cars also came with a racing brake cooling duct kit that was to be customer fitted after deliver. This item is still new with the car and has never been fitted.
The car has a folder of paperwork which includes its original window sticker and Shelby build paperwork. The car presents in near new condition and would be suitable for a collector as you would expect from a car with 3,600 kms on the odometer. Anything with the name Shelby on it is bound to be a sound investment. A perfect example of a modern collectible muscle car.
