    Ford Announces Pricing on 2008 Shelby GT500KR

    Date posted: 04-30-2008

    DEARBORN, Michigan — The 540-horsepower 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR arrives in showrooms this spring with a $79,995 price tag, including destination and gas-guzzler tax, said Ford Motor Company on Tuesday.

    The Dearborn automaker's most powerful Mustang ever is available only at "select" Ford dealerships and will have a production run of 1,000 cars for 2008 and approximately 700 additional units in 2009. The GT500KR will hit showroom floors at the end of May.

    The highly anticipated muscle car based on the GT500 is equipped with a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 that is enhanced with a Ford Racing Power Upgrade Pack, revised engine calibration and a freer-flowing exhaust. It churns out 540 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission.

    Ford Spokesman Said Deep told Inside Line that the "King of the Road" muscle car has just three options: a Shaker 1000 stereo, a navigation system and Sirius Satellite Radio.

    Ford noted in its press material about the car on Tuesday that fuel economy numbers are still a question mark. "Testing in progress," the automaker noted in its specifications package on the GT500KR.

    What this means to you: You'll pay a substantial price for this muscle car — and there is some concern that dealers may add a premium as well. — Anita Lienert, Correspondent

    Awesome car and I'm a Ford guy, but damn. I don't think I would ever spend 80k on a Mustang. Although that thing will be worth a shit ton of money someday.

    I think a bare bones V6 Mustang is still a hair under $20,000.

    total opposite of the purpose of a mustang

    64 came out modeled towards a younger generation.. apparently the same generation as today's mustang
