Barrett-Jackson: First 2008 Shelby GT500KR Goes For $550,000Ray Wert1/19/08 8:13pmFiled to: Barrett-jackson2008 Barrett-Jackson ScottsdaleAuctionsbarrettBarrett-Jackson AuctionBarrett-Jackson ScottsdaleJacksonShelbyShelby GT500KRcarroll shelbyFordgt500krMustangScottsdale18EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThe one-off glass-roofed 2008 Shelby GT500KR that's the first off the we showed you this past week, just went for a final sale price of $550,000 after bidding started at a mere $100,000. This despite a custom Fender Stratocaster with a pretty matte black case and all the money going to Edsel Ford's juvenile diabetes charity. We're a wee bit underwhelmed — despite Dr. McDreamy driving it up to the auction block. OK, we're kidding — nowe we're wondering what this bodes for the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 #01 that'll be hitting the auction block shortly as the Muscle Car Wars continue to heat up. Maybe if they'd offered it up with Will Arnett it might've made a bigger difference. Nah, probably not. Full BJ from BJ after the jump. Oh, and you want to know who bought it? That's right — Ron Pratte. That man loves Carroll Shelby.
