OK, Detroit Auto Show, Detroit Auto Show, Detroit Auto Show … let’s see, what do we got this year … something called an A-Bat, a whole bunch of hybrid this & that, SUVs renamed something-or-other-Vs, a whole bunch of Chinese cars with safety “standards” that will give Nader fits, the roll out of the 2008 Shelby GT500KR, huh, wonder what that’s all about?
Let’s take a look at the stats … SVT-engineered 5.4-liter supercharged V-8, limited to 1,000 copies, 50% stiffer chassis, revised suspension, better aero, Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission and 3.73:1 rear axle ratio, 540-hp and torque to 510 ft.-lbs …
Fiver hundred and forty?!
Son-of-a- … this thing must go like all get out!
And hey look, they’re even putting it out on ‘Ol Shel’d birthday … pretty cool, huh?
Only thing that could be cooler is if they put this drive train into the Bullitt package, but why get ahead of ourselves?
