Mustang Driven

News, information and my adventures with America's favorite pony car.

Throwback Thursday 2008 King of the Road

      I recently learned about this bit of Mustang history. Back in 2008 Ford and Shelby got together and produced 1000 40th anniversary GT500KR's. In case you didn't know, KR stands for "King of the Road".  This "King" came with the following specs

  • 540 hp supercharged V-8
  • 510 lb-ft torque
  • carbon fiber hood
  • carbon fiber mirror caps
  • upgraded suspension
  • Goodyear Eagle F1 supercar tires

All that and more could be had for a mere $120,000. Today if you can find one, they go for half the price. A bargain for an awesome car, even 8 years later.
