LARRY'S LEGEND LIVES

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.

1982 Mustang GT

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

In the world of Mustangs, few are as legendary as the Shelby GT500KR. Everyone knows that KR stands for King of the Road which was Shelbys way of stealing GMs thunder, as they were planning a Camaro with just such a name. So when the new Shelby GT500 debuted, it was only a matter of time before the KR showed up once again. With just 1000 built in 2008, theyre a guaranteed collectable now and in the future. The KR package added a few styling cues that are instantly recognizable, including the twin-snorkel hood that reaches almost to the nose of the car. Its rumored that this hood alone costs $20,000 to replace, but thats understandable since its 100% carbon-fiber and includes trick twist-lock hood pins. It also helps explain the KRs staggering $120,000 original sticker price, making this one some kind of insane bargain at half the price. With just 18,785 original miles, its definitely in collector-grade condition, used just enough to keep it healthy but obviously never used as a daily driver or even in inclement weather. The paint is slick silver and even with the traditional blue stripes on this particular KR, it keeps a relatively low profile, sneaking under the radar until you drop the hammer. A few subtle badges remind everyone that this is something special, but for many, the fact that its fast, exclusive, and doesnt advertise makes it the perfect Q-ship for high-speed travel. The interior is pretty much like any GT500, which is a retro-themed cockpit thats built for performance. Black leather buckets do a good impression of the 1967 Shelbys chairs, albeit with a lot more bolstering. A fat leather steering wheel, comprehensive instrumentation, and nostalgic accents mean that it neatly straddles yesterday and today without looking like its trying too hard. Shelby adds their own badging, with the most important being the serial number plate between the center A/C vents (this is #247). All of the Mustangs options were standard on the KR, including power windows, locks, seats, A/C, a trip computer, and a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo with in-dash CD changer. A big, fat white cue-ball knob for the 6-speed manual is another retro feature thats been neatly updated for the 21st century and it works even better than the old Toploaders of yore. Theres a neatly finished trunk thats probably never been used, and I expect itll stay that way because baggage adds ballast. The heart of the KR is an upgraded 5.4 liter supercharged V8. With an extra 40 horsepower, it sat neatly at the top of the Shelby food chain. Its still built by the guys at SVT who put their personal signature on each engine they build, but thanks to a bigger exhaust, a cold air intake kit, and a few performance calibrations from Pro-Cal Performance its an entirely different animal, registering out at 697HP at the flywheel. The suspension is augmented with unique spring rates, dampers, stabilizer bars, and strut tower brace, and the result was so good, it became the foundation of the next-generation GT500. The undercarriage is highly detailed and almost like new, so you know its never seen inclement weather, and those giant brakes look fantastic behind those trick forged Alcoa aluminum wheels (extra set included with the sale!). Those shiny Alcoas are wrapped in staggered 255/40/18 front and 285/40/18 rear Goodyear Eagle F1s. Future collectors take note: limited-edition Shelby Mustangs with big horsepower will always be in demand. This ones available at half the original price, but surely thats only a temporary situation. Documented with all of its original manuals and an original window sticker, this is the one to have. Call today!
