2008 Ford Mustang
Mustang’s third body style emerges.
The Shelby GT350 wasn't the only high-performance Mustang available if you wanted a fast pony.
Classic Car Overview
The new KR, like the original, is essentially a GT500 thats spent another hour or two swimming in the testosterone pool. The supercharged V-8 benefits from a new cold-air intake and a Ford Racing low-restriction exhaust. "We also tweaked the spark maps a bit," says Jamal Hameedi, SVT chief nameplate engineer. "Life is great with forced induction, because small spark changes bring big power increases." With no change in boost pressure, output is bumped to a target of 540 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, up from 500 horses and 480 pound-feet for the GT500. A six-speed manual will remain the standard and only transmission, the ceramic-metallic twin-disc clutch already rated to handle additional power (once in the hands of owners, few GT500s, Hameedi notes, remain at 500 horsepower for long). Still, the KR will get a new, lower 3.73 rear axle (versus the GT500s 3.31), which with the additional ponies should improve acceleration significantly (expect the KR to rocket from 0 to 60 mph in about four seconds flat or less-Z06 territory).
Price does not include applicable tax, title, license, processing and/or $199 documentation fees.
