We're looking at the 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR and 2008 Chevrolet Corvette
Z06, but we're imagining a '68 Shelby GT500KR staging next to a Corvette
with one of the 427-cubic-inch V8s on the Connecting Highway in Queens, New
York, probably sometime during the Nixon administration. We don't know how
the cars are tuned or which driver has the better hole-shot technique, but
we're calling our street race in favor of the Vette.
You see, there's no historical basis for a close Corvette-Mustang rivalry. A Corvette of any
year is a little too fast and smart to be street racing ratty muscle cars.
It's a real sports car, the kind of car that's still fun when you start
going around corners.
But maybe it's a different story with this 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR and
2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Each of these rear-wheel-drive coupes has a V8
rated for more than 500 horsepower at the flywheel.
And with the release of the limited-edition 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR, Ford
has moved in on Chevrolet's price territory. The GT500KR leaves the Ford
factory as a $46,730 GT500 coupe and is shipped as a rolling chassis to
Carroll Shelby's facility near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Nevada. By
the time the KR cruises out of Shelby's shop, it's an $82,395 Mustang.
As such, the King-of-the-Road Mustang must now contend with this
$76,920 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. And though the Z06 is a few horsepower shy of the
upcoming ZR1, it's not an easy mark. The GT500KR will have to play like a
sports car just to keep up.

It's something like trying to drive the 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 on a
roller-coaster, only there are no steel tracks to keep you from slithering
off the pavement and ending up in a flaming heap of 540-horsepowerMustang.
You can't even see where you're going, really. Hard on it, the GT500's rear
tires begin spinning just as you can see nothing but sky in the windshield.
You're on top of the hump at the entrance to Infineon Raceway's Turn 6, and
as your stomach and both right-side tires go weightless, you start a long,
long dive to the left, sliding sideways all the way down the hill and
around the 180-degree corner.
The Shelby GT500 is so torqued up with the cornering force from the
low-profile 19-inch tires and the drive from the supercharged V8 that you
can practically hear the welds popping in the chassis. But something is
different this time — palms are not slick with sweat, tires are not
threatening to let go at the most inopportune moment and steering left in
order to go right is a joy and not a reflex of self-preservation.
The 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 gets 2 mpg more on the EPA highway cycle this
year. The Ford engineers are really proud of this. But every time we make
another lap and slide down Turn 6, we have our doubts that fuel economy is
what this car is about.
Serving Our Inner Adolescent
We're behaving like adults as the Ford engineers tell us all about the 2010
Ford Shelby GT500, even as we hear a couple of the cars making shake-down
runs on the quarter-mile strip at Infineon Raceway a few hundred feet away.
And in many ways, the GT500 itself is trying to act more like an adult,
casting aside the muscle-bound character of the 2007 Ford Shelby GT500.
As the Ford people tell us, they started with the limited-production 2008
Ford Shelby GT500KR, the exclusive (1,700 examples built) and
revenue-enhancing (MSRP $79,995) Mustang produced last year. And aside
from a few fewer Shelby badges (the KR had many to spare), the GT500 is
like the KR in almost every way, except it's built at the Mustang plant in Flat Rock, Michigan,
rather than at the Shelby facility in Las Vegas.
You can tell as soon as you open the new GT500's hood, complete with
hot-air extractors. The supercharged and intercooled DOHC 5.4-liter V8 with
its truck-style iron block is still in place, but now it carries a conical
air filter in its own sealed cold-air box behind the left-side headlight,
an innovation that increases airflow while resisting power-sapping heat
soak. For the GT500, this new cold-air intake required the migration of the
iconic Cobra badge on the grille from the left side to the right side.
