5.4 Liter Supercharged V8
Pulling every last ounce of power and coolness from the pony car, this 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 KR was the ultimate supercar from one of the greatest American racing legends. That history is why this supercharged 540 hp machine is so well preserved with nearly impossibly low mileage.
An odometer this low is not only accurate, but it also instantly tells you this has ALWAYS been treated like a garage showpiece instead of a track-ready coupe. That\'s also why the Silver Clearcoat Metallic paint still has an awesome showroom level shine. And yes, the blue stripe package makes this just as iconic as the original Shelby Mustangs. In fact, this coupe was created as part of the 40th anniversary of the original King of the Road (KR) Mustang. The limited edition production numbers of this one was based on those originals, and we all know what kind of money those command today. And more than just an instant-classic, this is desirable for being one of the meanest ponies around. The large scoops in the carbon fiber hood, carbon fiber splitter, beefy 18-inch forged wheels, and all those snake-bitten badges really create intimidation on wheels. So to find one that\'s still so fresh that the key fobs are still in the factory bags means purchasing this one is like getting it brand new from the Ford dealer over a decade ago!
The great thing about buying a Shelby Mustang is that they add power and intimidation, and they leave in all the premium features. For example, you get the exceptionally comfortable power-adjusting Mustang driver\'s seat. Only now you have Shelby\'s snake embossed in the leather, and his signature is stitched into the headrest. And the rest of the interior leaves you wanting for nothing with features like air conditioning, power windows, power locks, dual airbags, side air bags, keyless entry, and cruise control. And this modern classic has the upgraded touchscreen infotainment AM/FM/CD stereo. Of course, what you\'ll really love in the center of this car is the Shelby American individually numbered plaque. It\'s a reminder that this was part of a true special build. And with the leather-wrapped steering wheel special shifter feeling so good in your hands, we know you\'ll need to add to the ultra-low odometer on this true Shelby Mustang.
When a car has been preserved this well inside and out, then you know it was made sure that the all-important engine bay was preserved to look like today is day one. True Shelby fans know the importance of having a car finished at the Shelby Las Vegas facility. That\'s where this the original supercharged DOHC 5.4-liter V8 received special programming and a cold air induction. It takes the stock GT500 horsepower from 500 to 540. This has a supercar level of power, and the growl of the dual exhaust let\'s everyone know it. Best of all, you get to bring the power and thunder to the streets with the full control of Ford\'s stout six-speed manual transmission. And more than just pure power, it lives up to the King of the Road name with the suspension package that includes tuned springs, dampers, and stabilizer bars front & rear. Add in Brembo four-wheel disc brakes, ABS, and Goodyear Eagle F1 tires on this polished special Shelby alloys, and you know this one offers the full modern performance package you demand.
The sale comes complete with the original windows sticker, because after all, you\'re going to want to properly display this museum-quality coupe. This Mustang is truly King of the Road. So don\'t let this amazingly preserved instant classic slip away. Call now!
