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.
