When it comes to badass performance versions of the iconic Ford Mustang, the new 2022 Shelby GT500 King of the Road is right at the top of the pile. Basically a beefed-up version of the GT500 we don't currently get in Mzansi, the GT500KR is a particularly potent special edition built specially to commemorate Shelby American's 60th anniversary.
Only the third model to wear this illustrious nameplate (the first was in 1968 and the second in 2008), the new GT500KR generates a whopping 670kW courtesy of a 5.2l Predator V8 fitted with an upgraded supercharger and engine coolers. This is a substantial 105kW increase over that of the standard GT500. Other noteworthy modifications include a lightweight carbon fibre hood that cuts 14kg from the car's kerb weight, a bespoke set of forged wheels as well as a more aggressive suspension tune and notably stiffer sway bars.
