Lot #1418 - This is a Serial #001 of the total 2008 GT500KR production. Created and released in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the 1968 Shelby Cobra GT500KR, this example has a mere 222 actual miles on the odometer and has been autographed by the legendary Mr. Shelby himself. Similarly to its namesake, the 2008 King of the Road packs a walloping dose of Ford performance power and features a Ford SVT-engineered 5.4-liter supercharged V8 with a Ford racing power upgrade pack, which increases horsepower to an estimated 540hp, with torque of 510 ft/lbs courtesy of the revised ignition and throttle calibration, along with a cold-air intake system which replaced the stock unit. The power plant is mated to a Tremec TR6060 6-speed manual transmission and 3.73:1 rear axle ratio. Shifting is courtesy of a Ford Racing short-throw shifter, which made its debut on the KR.
