While we haven't had a chance to drive the new 2008 Mustang Shelby GT500KR, others have. Our friends at Popular Mechanics spent some time behind the wheel of the new Shelby GT500KR and have come away with some driving impressions of the purported "King of the Road." After reading their final take on the KR as well as those from other outlets, we're beginning to think maybe "Prince" might have been a better name for it. Unless of course "King" is being used to mean "King's Ransom" — then the naming convention makes sense given the stratospheric $80,000 price for a ridiculously high horsepower car with a solid axle and a propensity to only go in a straight line. While we'd never call this Mustang a "Sally" and we'll obviously stop short from saying the 2008 Mustang Shelby GT500KR sucks, we're pretty sure there's better cars you could probably buy for the money. But that's just our take on it. Check out the full review from the Mechanics who are quite Popular here:
