Mileage: 6,100
Price: US $46,000.00


The plus points about this car is that it is low mileage and the limited edition GT500KR.
Examples like this GT500KR will always be held in high esteem and hold their value so this aspect of the car can’t be underestimated.
You can get cheaper mustangs outlier, but considering the whole package as below, this car is well worth shortlisting.

‘This car was owned by a Dallas car collector and kept in a climate controlled environment for most of its life. ‘
‘We also tweaked the spark maps a bit,” says Jamal Hameedi, SVT chief nameplate engineer. “Life is great with forced induction, because small spark changes bring big power increases.” With no change in boost pressure, output is bumped to a target of 540 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, up from 500 horses and 480 pound-feet for the GT500. A six-speed manual will remain the standard and only transmission, the ceramic-metallic twin-disc clutch already rated to handle additional power (once in the hands of owners, few GT500s, Hameedi notes, remain at 500 horsepower for long). Still, the KR will get a new, lower 3.73 rear axle (versus the GT500’s 3.31), which with the additional ponies should improve acceleration significantly (expect the KR to rocket from 0 to 60 mph in about four seconds flat or less-Z06 territory).

The basic suspension will carry over from the GT500, albeit with stiffer springs and shocks, thicker anti-roll bars, and a brace across the front strut towers. “On the KR we’re willing to trade ride comfort for enhanced body control and sharper turn-in,” says Hameedi. In addition, ride height may be lowered slightly. “We’re still finalizing the setup,” says Gary Patterson (who, along with Ford engineers, will be wringing out KR prototypes at Las Vegas Speedway in the months ahead). The GT500’s standard Brembo brakes also will serve in the KR, their performance enhanced via chrome-ringed front brake ducts. The production KR will ride on new 18-inch wheels supplied by Alcoa (the show car is wearing 20s).

Inside, the KR will be dressed as you’d expect a Shelby special to be: “Shelby”-embossed headrests, special graphics, logo floormats, “40th Anniversary” dash plate. The KR will also get a short-throw shift lever.’
