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.
Fast & Furious 4: The Cars and Trucks
FAST & FURIOUS COVERAGE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Opens Friday, April 3!!!
In the movie business, cars are expendable. They're not respected, nowhere
near cherished, subject to abuse and constantly thrashed. It doesn't matter
if the cars are Ferraris or Ford Crown Vics, the job of any vehicle in a
movie is to tell the story effectively — even if it must be destroyed in
order to do so. And in a movie like Fast & Furious (opening April 3) the
cars do a lot of storytelling. We should know; we went behind the scenes.
In October of 2007, Dennis McCarthy was hired as the picture car
coordinator for Fast & Furious, and after leasing a 60,000-square-foot shop
in Southern California's San Fernando Valley and hiring a staff of
mechanics and fabricators, he got started building the 240 or so cars that
would be needed for the production — to portray about a dozen on-screen
cars tied to a character. After all, duplicates were needed of every car to
ensure the production never had to slow down; to perform specific stunts;
and to be wrecked in the most spectacular way possible.
Using documentation from the production's picture car department and
in-person interviews with McCarthy and his hard-working team of
fabricators, Inside Line has created the most comprehensive guide to this
year's hottest movie cars. Here it is: Inside Line's guide to the cars and
trucks of Fast & Furious.

It's quickly becoming a classic battle. Chevrolet Corvette versus Nissan
GT-R. An all-American, rear-wheel-drive, manually shifted V8 brute versus
an all-wheel-drive Japanese technology tank with twin turbos and a dual-clutch transmission.
Edmunds.com's Road Test Editor Mike Monticello headed to the Streets of
Willow Springs to do a proper comparison on the 1.8-mile road course north

Mustang v 370Z SMACKDOWN: Ford Mustang GT vs. Nissan 370Z
FULL Mustang V 370Z COMPARO
When we last left the 2009 Nissan 370Z, it had just laid a drubbing on
BMW's little 135i. We then proclaimed, "The 2009 Nissan 370Z raises the
standard for the sport coupe segment to a new level of affordable
Time to get more serious. It's V8 time. Who's in? Let's see, no Camaro, and a Challenger is not
available (don't ask), so that leaves the freshly updated 2010 Ford Mustang GT, a car whose very
existence is predicated upon wallet-friendly performance.
Perhaps a reinvigorated veteran can take down the newly crowned king. The
particulars might differ — four seats versus two, V8 versus V6 — but
the mission is the same. And the 2009 Nissan 370Z and 2010 Ford Mustang GT are priced closer than you
