Thanks to innovative fans and creative designers, our cars continue to become more sophisticated, more polished and more refined. One of those fans, a Texan by the name of Carroll Shelby, spent most of his life building a well-deserved reputation for serious performance and record setting speed. And even at the fiery age of 89, he was STILL inspiring enthusiasts to push their creations to the point of borderline unbelievable. It seems only fitting that Ford and Shelby American would eventually renew their decades abandoned push to dominate the performance car world. And this 740-mile GT500KR, mixing a supercharged V8 and six forward gears with a track-tuned suspension, is a perfect example of why that partnership is a match made in heaven. Want some cool and exclusive muscle that you can actually drive and enjoy? This impressive, showroom-fresh coupe is exactly what you’ve been waiting for!


Complementing smooth Silver Metallic 2-stage with vivid blue stripes, this spotless Mustang has spent the majority of its life parked in dry storage. Thanks to that shelter, and a noted aversion to rain and wintry weather, the car’s second and most recent owner maintained factory-fresh aesthetics that would be right at home in a dealer’s showroom. According to CARFAX, those aesthetics are 100% straight with no history of accidents or damage of any kind. And a close look down this Ford’s sculpted fuselage reveals world-class finishing that, by far, creates one of the nicest late-model pony cars we’ve ever seen!

Because the Super Snake package carried a 5-figure premium, Shelby’s designers focused on creating a nouveau icon that looks tailored and substantial in comparison to ‘lesser’ competitors. At the front of the car, a familiar Mustang grille hangs an offset Cobra emblem between HID headlights, a carbon fiber splitter and a sculpted valance that’s complete with traditional fog lamps. At the top of that grille, a pinned Super Snake hood centers broad “S H E L B Y” lettering in front of color-keyed heat extractors and chip-free glass. At the base of that glass, Satin Black rockers anchor tough Shelby emblems under carbon-capped mirrors. And behind of those mirrors, a stylish, trunk-mounted spoiler and aggressive Shelby splitter frame clean taillights, a bold “S H E L B Y” trunk script and a Super Snake-exclusive faux fuel filler.


The reborn GT500 celebrated one of the most successful partnerships in performance car history. Take a look under this Mustang’s lightweight hood and you’ll find a blown ‘mod motor’ that was heavily influenced by Ford’s GT super car. And what’s better: by utilizing a cast iron block, aluminum heads, forged internals and dual overhead camshafts, this rowdy torque monster makes great power while mixing surprising efficiency with a docile nature. Twist the key and the big V8 rumbles to life, breathing through a Ford Racing Cold Air Kit, a Ford Racing H-pipe and throaty Ford Racing mufflers. Goose the throttle and a Pro-Cal performance tune engages a roots-style supercharger that creates 8 to 10 pounds of boost. Deliver one serious jab to the go-pedal, and you’ll find out why dictionaries are starting to list the name “Carroll Shelby” under the word “performance”. Aesthetically, this Ford’s spotless bay looks assembly line-fresh, eschewing the kind flash you’d expect from such a pedigreed car for, dare I say, a bit of a ‘sleeper’ vibe. But to anyone who knows anything about performance, the big blower, subtle SVT badging, machined Shelby caps and silver “POWERED BY SVT” cam covers are a dead giveaway that they’re looking at something real special!


As most performance car fans already know, this Mustang’s SVT-tuned chassis is nothing short of excellent. Behind the smooth engine, a slick-shifting Tremec TR6060 6-speed spins power to an 8.8-inch limited-slip axle that’s fitted with big, 3.73 gears. At the corners of the car, power-assisted Brembo calipers join power-assisted Ford calipers in squeezing big, vented rotors. Turns come courtesy of Ford’s super-efficient power rack-and-pinion steering. Naturally, Ford’s standard ABS and traction control systems are present and accounted for. And all this first class agility rides on forged Shelby kicks, which twist 255/45ZR18 Goodyear Eagle F1s in front of 285/40ZR18 Goodyear Eagle F1s.


Inside this Ford, bolstered, Shelby-branded seats, which feature standard power adjustment for the car’s driver, ride opposite a monochromatic, leather-wrapped steering wheel that’s adorned with convenient thumb buttons. The dash is a familiar Mustang layout, which frames a small Shelby plaque and satin-trimmed instrumentation. Below that dash, a powerful Shaker 500 stereo combines MP3 compatibility and a 6-disc CD changer with optional, DVD-based navigation. Below that stereo, a short-throw shifter leads an impressive console that, like the aforementioned steering wheel, is detailed in red French stitching. Beneath that console, rich carpet flows past metal-trimmed foot pedals and Shelby-branded floor mats to “SVT” branded sills. And naturally, all the luxuries you’d expect in a high dollar modern car are ready and waiting including: cruise control, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors and Remote Keyless Entry.
