America's most iconic pony car trots on stage for auction.
Shelby American built an image for the Ford Mustang by revitalizing what was once little more than a tired old mule into something really special. While the original pony car might not have been all that incredible, it used to be referred to as a "secretary's car". The introduction of the Shelby performance upgrade seemed to breathe new life into the once dying stallion. Carroll Shelby had a vision and set out to create a completely different beast, something that could destroy the competition and look good as hell while doing it. Needless to say, it did it, and today the Shelby GT500 is considered the pinnacle of American performance. This is just one example of this prestige.
The exterior of this incredible Shelby GT500 KR Cabriolet from 1968 is painted in the classic favorite cherry red. Of course, no Shelby color scheme would be complete without the famous white stripes that characterize the Shelby brand. These sharp body lines are further accentuated by the roof or lack of it. Particularly noticeable is the anti-roll bar, which gives the car an even sportier look and evokes memories of the roadster style for which Shelby was initially famous. The beautiful exterior design is perfectly complemented by the black leather interior and wood paneling.
Under the hood is the famous Cobra 428 ci V8, which develops an insane 335 hp at 6,000 rpm. All of this intense power is transmitted via a four-speed manual transmission, which enables maximum driving pleasure and quick changes between gears. This potent pony car is a connoisseur of performance and power with enough sleek design to make heads turn faster than its top speed. Many of our muscle car fanatics would love to get their hands on this incredible car, the only question is. Who will do it
