Ford will extend the Mustang lineup with another special edition that will be unveiled at New York auto show. The new model, called Shelby KR is a special version of the 1968 GT500, a nostril-flaring beast dubbed KR for “King of the Road.” The original had a Cobra Jet 428-cubic-inch engine, a live rear axle, and rear drum brakes.

The Shelby KR Mustang will be powered by a range of engines starting with the 5.0-liter V8 used in the Interceptor concept sedan that rides on a stretched Mustang platform—to a 6.2-liter OHC mill in the pending new F-Series due later this year.
