Barrett-Jackson 2008: Shelby GT500KR Goes For $605,000
A final sale price of $605,000 (After auction fees) has been reached on the one-off glass-roofed Shelby GT500KR. Bidding began at $100,000. The proceeds of the auction will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
“Barrett-Jackson is an ideal venue to launch and sell Ford’s premier models,” said Robert Parker, Ford car marketing manager. “It’s the ultimate platform for selling the world’s most remarkable cars, and we’ve created a unique GT500KR just for the occasion.”
The 540-horsepower Shelby GT500KR is a unique rendition of the most powerful factory-built Mustang ever. Shelby GT500KR production began in Las Vegas on Jan. 11, Carroll Shelby’s 85th birthday. The one-of-one ebony black GT500KR that sold today features the same full glass roof that is being offered as an option on the 2009 V-6 Mustang and Mustang GT models only.
