Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.
Classic Car Overview
Heres one of those cars that will do whatever you ask of it. With 540 horsepower on tap and a 6-speed manual transmission, this 2008 Shelby GT500 KR is more than track worthy. Yet its docile and gentle as a kitten in city traffic. With a mere 467 miles on the odometer, this is a unique opportunity for you to own a 40th Anniversary Shelby in like new condition. The interior even smells new! So street or track this Shelby will shine, but its also a very collectible 40th Anniversary Edition Shelby Mustang thats loaded with performance and luxury features. On the performance side, theres the factory Ford Racing supercharger that gives the boost for 540 powerful but reliable horses. It exhales through a Shelby Performance exhaust that lets the motor breathe and sounds superb. Ultra performance braking comes courtesy of Brembo with 4 piston calipers all around. The SVT suspension has been given the Shelby touch too. The car contacts the road (or track) via some of the nicest wheels youll find anywhere. The Shelby Super Snake 18 inch wheels have it all. Theyre polished aluminum for light weight and great appearance, and theres plenty of ventilation to keep those Brembos cool. With these brakes and all that power, the right tires are essential. Staggered made-in-U.S.A. Goodyear Supercars -- with 285s on the back -- handle the job nicely. As for amenities, everythings here. A Shaker 1000 sound system plays AM, FM, CD, and MP3 or whatever you plug into the line-in jack. Power steering, power anti-lock Brembo brakes, power windows, locks, and seats means youd be hard pressed to find more power equipment in a Lincoln. The leather seats and tilt wheel offer supreme comfort. And the embroidered GT500KR headrests and specially labeled floor mats add an air of exclusivity to the interior. Power, prestige, performance, handling, and great looks. This 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR 40th Anniversary has it all. Plus, it only shows 467 original miles and has a clean Carfax.
