The challenger does suprisingly well out of the hole, but it's obvious it
doesn't make the power it needs.

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.
MuscleCar Tuner Showdown: HPE650/SuperSnake/SpeedfactorySRT8
We've compared nearly every combination of modern American muscle cars on
the market. Now it's time for the ultimate showdown - Hennessey's Camaro HPE650 vs Shelby's GT500
Super Snake vs Speedfactory's Challenger SRT8. We head to the Dyno, the test track and the
racetrack to determine which of these tuned pony cars reigns supreme.

'69 Shelby Cobra GT 500
Sail down the coast with a '69 Shelby Cobra GT 500 full of passengers. A
shade of blue/green that is just mesmerizing to look at. Almost as perfect
as the day it was delivered, still has the "Starting Instructions" flyer on
the driver's sun visor and the addition of Carroll Shelby's signature on
the glovebox lid. A beautiful example of this quintessentially classic
From the owner:
Restored by Keith Craft in 2010. Repainted to its original color of
Gulfstream Aqua. It currently has about 55,000 miles on the ODO.
It has its original matching numbers 428 CJ engine and top loader 4-speed
transmission, and original interior (though the seats are in storage so
they don't get worn out).
At Mustang Northwest's 19th
Annual Mustang Roundup, the
car took 2nd place (was painted black at the time).
Won a silver medal in 2010 at Mid America Mustang Nationals.
More recently it was selected as one of the top 20 cars at the 2011 Shelby
Bash car show, placed third at the La Jolla Concours, and won second at the
2011 COCOA Concours de Nice (pronounced the "nice" not "niece").
To preserve the original engine, I had Keith Craft build a 427 side oiler
which is being installed this week. That should give the car quite a bit
more power, while allowing me to store the original engine for
