7. 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR

When the late Carroll Shelby released GT500 in the KR rendition, my eyes stayed fixed on it for hours. As a collaboration with SVT, only 1,000 units were built for the 40th Anniversary. It has extensive use of carbon fiber and details inspired by the original 1968 King of the Road model. Upgrades didn’t stop there. The KR is powered by a 540 horsepower 5.4L supercharged V8 engine and Shelby along with SVT tuned the suspension and fitted the vehicles with Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires. As a finishing touch, the seats are embroidered with Shelby’s signature. This is the Mustang to own.
