Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the original Shelby Cobra GT500KR, Ford and Shelby collaborate on a new King of the Road Mustang with 2008 Shelby GT500KR. Ford Shelby GT500KR features an estimated 540hp 5.4-liter supercharged V8 with a Ford Racing Power upgrade pack, 3.73:1 rear axle ratio, short-throw shifter and unique suspension tuning. Exterior design draws inspiration from the classic Shelby KR Mustangs and features a unique carbon composite hood, wheels and special 40th Anniversary badging and unique striping. Each KR model is identified by special 40th Anniversary KR badges on the fenders and grille, distinctive body-colored mirror caps and Shelby lettering stretching across the front of the hood and along the rear portion of the deck lid. A special Shelby VIN tag is affixed to each vehicle, mounted in the engine compartment. Just like its namesake, the 2008 King of the Road packs a walloping dose of Ford Performance power under is massive composite hood scoops. Ford Racing Power upgrade pack that boosts horsepower thanks to a revised ignition and throttle calibration and a cold air intake system that replaces the stock unit. Calibration modifications include advancing the ignition timing as well as re-mapping of the electronic throttle settings to provide quicker throttle response for better off-line and mid-range acceleration. Increased throttle response will be met with a sharper road from the Ford Racing-inspired exhaust system. Side stripes are true to the original KR right down to the front used for the GT500KR lettering, while the classic LeMans-style striping that races down the center of the car has been deleted between the leading forward edge of the hood scoops and the front of the hood, accenting the scoops and giving the KR its distinctive face.
