The KRs were GT500s shipped from Ford in enclosed trailers to Shelby Automobiles in Vegas. At an additional cost of $35,665 the upgrades were installed by Shelby. All other Shelbys were built by Ford. The fact it is a Shelby built car makes it extremely collectible now and especially in the future. Only 1,011 were made total, only 328 were black.

EXTERIOR: Items installed by Shelby include the "over the top stripes" and rear spoiler. They also installed a lightweight carbon fiber hood with functional air induction and extraction scoops. KRs also received carbon fiber mirror covers, or "mirror skulls" as Shelby calls them, and carbon fiber front spoiler. The 18 inch forged polished aluminum wheels are unique to a KR with performance Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. Other features unique to the KR is satin finish hood locks, KR fender and grill emblems and unique Shelby hood and trunk letter kit. Other features installed by Ford are HID headlamps ($525), keyless entry, fog lamps and rocker moldings. The body looks pristine, no damage or dents. The original paint still shows like new. It does have tiny rock chips down low.

INTERIOR: This immaculate interior offers luxury and sportiness. It has the optional premium trim package. It has all the power accessories, cruise control, tilt, leather etc. KR features include embroidered headrests on the Cobra sport seats, Ford Racing short throw shifter with white ball and a Shelby numbered plaque displayed proudly on the dash. Optional features installed by Ford include the Navigation package ($1,995), satellite stereo ($195) and ambient lighting ($295). It also has a set of Weather Tech mats. It is in excellent condition from carpet to headliner. It has the Shelby owners pouch in the glove box with the manuals.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: High performance 5.4 L supercharged engine makes 540 horsepower-510 lbs of torque. It was heavily influenced by Ford's first GT supercar. It has a cast iron block with aluminum heads, forged internals and dual overhead cams. This torque monster makes great power, yet it has great efficiency and a docile nature if so desired. The KR features include 40 hp more then a GT 500, a Ford Racing cold air kit, Pro Cal performance calibration, machined billet engine fluid caps with KR logos, KR plaque and strut tower brace. The SVT hand built engine has a plaque with the signatures of the people that built it.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Opens with remote. Immaculate carpeted area. There are some extras included: A large framed picture, Marti report, window sticker and Shelby certificate are framed. There is also a Shelby plate and GT500KR frame.

UNDERSIDE: It has a throaty rumble through the Ford Racing H pipe, Ford Racing mufflers with polished tips. KR features an SVT tuned chassis including performance springs, struts, shocks and stiffer sway bars. Power is delivered through a Tremec TR6060 6-speed trans and a limited slip 3.73 axle ratio in the back. Brembo disc brakes in front with cooling ducts, Ford disc in back. The rack and pinion steering is smooth and effortless. Ford features include ABS and traction control systems. Underneath the car is still close to new looking, it has factory stickers and paint markings on the different components.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significa of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
