Ford Shelby Mustang GT500KR
Ford and Carroll Shelby revive yet another great performance moniker - the GT500 KR (King of the Road) - for 2008. Modifications to the 5.4-liter supercharged V8 allow the engine to produce 540 hp and 510 lb-ft
, coupled through a Tremec 6-speed transmission. A retuned suspension package, consisting of unique springs, dampers and a strut tower brace, help the new KR handle better than its ancestor. Shelby tops it off with a carbon-fiber hood that emulates KRs of days past. The GT500 KR goes on sale in spring of 2008, but act fast - only 1000 will be built.
