Shelby GT500KR Road Trip, Chapter II: What's Your Favorite Beef Jerky?

As one noted member of the auto press guild told me today, "you can't have a Mustang road trip without beef jerky." He's right. I went with the Carne Asade — what about you? Although I pulled over for the jerky, it was nice to give my ass a moment of relief from the pains of the road. The Shelby GT500KR's got a… » 8/26/08 9:54pm 8/26/08 9:54pm

First Video Of KITT Valmorphanizing Into A Ford F-150 FX4 Pickup Truck

Somewhere between "Morphing" and "Transforming" is the very Team America-ish "Valmorphanization." That's the term we feel best using to describe what KITT's doing in this one minute clip from the new Knight Rider TV show premiering September 24th on NBC. As you'd expect, KITT is apparently fitted with a current Ford… » 7/26/08 2:36pm 7/26/08 2:36pm

2008 Shelby GT500KR Hits The Dyno, Gets 50 More Horses Than Ford Claims

The ponycar fanboys at 5.0 Mustangs and Super Fords took a Shelby GT500KR press car, strapped it down on a Dynapack chassis dyno, hit the gas and recorded a monster 509 HP and 467.7 lb-ft of torque. When you factor in driveline losses, that means the King of the Road is putting out 590 HP and 550 lb-ft. That's… » 7/16/08 2:20pm 7/16/08 2:20pm

Buy A 2008 Mustang Shelby GT500KR Now For Just...$154,991!

At almost $80,000, the sticker price on the 2008 Mustang Shelby GT500KR was already on the high side of ridiculous, but we knew Ford would sell every one of these purported "King of the Road" 'stangs to pony car fan-boys. With that kind of demand, you'd expect to see a little bit of margin dropped on top of the… » 5/19/08 7:30am 5/19/08 7:30am

Unique Performance Assets Going Up For Auction, Again

Though Unique Performance the company may be dead, the drama lives on. At least until Doug Hasty goes to jail, if that's what ends up happening. We mentioned earlier that an auction of Unique Performance equipment netted more than a million dollars, which was unfortunately only enough to cover taxes and not screwed… » 5/12/08 4:20pm 5/12/08 4:20pm

KITT Shelby Mustang GT500KR Pair Sells For $300,000

Just when you thought you'd seen the last of KITT, it's back — at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Palm Beach. We wonder if this means there won't be a full television series based on the movie after all. Yes, these were the actual cars used in the made-for-NBC movie. That means that these actually aren't even GT500KR… » 3/29/08 5:24pm 3/29/08 5:24pm
