The Mustang with the Shelby nameplate is top of the line 

when it comes to performance. The 2008 GT500 KR is no exception. 

'08 Ford Shelby His Mustang GT 500 KR has his impressive 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine under the hood 

This Bad Boy has a peak power output of 540 hp at 6,250 rpm and 510 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm 

It has rear-wheel drive and a compression ratio of 8.4:1. 

The gearbox used on this version of the Mustang is manual. 

The Ford Mustang wasn't the fastest sports car on the market 

However, it delivers in a way that many of its competitors do not.  

The 2008 Ford Shelby GT 500 KR accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds.  

Travels a quarter mile in 12.5 seconds at 114 mph 

Of course there are cheaper and faster options than this 

but this car really deserves the hype behind it
