Dealer Summary

Comments from the Dealer

This is an exceptional example of a collector quality modern classic! The 2008 year model GT500KR was realeased in celebration of Shelby's 40th anniversary! The KR or "King of the Road" version of the GT500 is a limited-edition model with only 1011 being produced world wide for 2008. Out of these only 476 were finished in this iconic silver metallic with vista blue stripes colour scheme. The Ford SVT-engineered 5.4-litre supercharged V-8 was enhanced with a Ford Racing Power Upgrade Pack to boost horsepower from 500 in a normal GT500 to 540 and torque to 510 foot pounds of torque in the KR. The added power came via revised ignition and air/fuel calibration, a throaty Ford Racing-inspired dual exhaust and a cold-air intake system that was specially designed to mate perfectly against the KR's unique carbon fiber hood. The car is a weapon to drive when you want but also can be driven very sedately and smoothly with ease.

These cars are rare worldwide and almost non-existant in Australia. The cost of these cars new was phenomenal and once combined with import duty and taxes, they were extremely expensive to buy and bring to Australia, if you could even get your hands on one. Once here, they needed to be converted to RHD for road use which in this car was undertaken by Performax in Brisbane who are extremely reputable but cost in the vicinity of $45K to do the job.

This car is number 706 and is a low milage example (approx. 18,000 from new) and in absolutely immaculate condition inside and out. A true collector quality example. The car does have some very minor cosmetic (bolt on) upgrades all of which could easily be removed in an afternoon and all of the factory parts are available with the car should someone wish to return it to absolute factory stock standard. The prices of these cars are on the up at the moment with collectors always keen to chase limited production number Shelbys. An opportunity to own a great and usable collector car that's an absolute blast to drive!
