Greatest Shelby Created

by Gt500krguy from on Fri Mar 17 2017

As an owner of a GT500KR since 2009 I have never driven a car as spectacular. I've owned many Mustangs since 1979 and I've modified all of them, but I just couldn't make my vintage Stangs as powerful and handle was well as what SVT and Carroll Shelby achieved together developing this GT500KR. It was born a GT500 pioneered by the SVT (Special Vehicles Team) then moved onto Las Vegas for Carroll's team to do their mods. All cars leaving Las Vegas means it's the best Mustang to hit the roads with the name Shelby; then the letters "KR" King of the Road are added. This means no other is better. Any Stang touched by SVT and Carroll Shelby's team is a top of the line Mustang. In my humble opinion it has been an honor and privilege to own a GT500KR. If you find one with Carroll Shelby's signature that's more of an honor. If you find one with CARFAX it's guaranteed to not be a lemon. They're beautiful cars and so much fun to drive, but be careful with the power. Such an enjoyable Mustang - these are the tops.

Shelby got it right with this car,40th anniversary

by shelbany68 from South Elgin on Fri Jun 08 2018

I already own a 68 KR and adding this 40th anniversary edition to my collection is perfect. I've had this car out a couple of times since I purchased in May.

Fast Fun

by HYOFICR from Arab, AL on Fri Jul 27 2018

This is definitely a performance car. The acceleration and handling more than compensate for the stiff ride. Great value when compared to other performance autos.

Performance & Looks are better than advertised. Tremendous fun to unleash the 500hp, while listening to the blower spool!!!
