The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR was officially launched at the 2007 New York International Auto Show where it was displayed as a celebratory piece for the 40th Anniversary of the original 1968 Shelby Cobra GT500KR. This car was so amazing, that Carroll Shelby himself grabbed up a model to put in his garage. Now, the model he drove can be yours as it will be put up for auction at Vicari’s 16th annual Biloxi Auction set to take place from October 7-14, 2012

Carroll Shelby’s car is painted in Ebony Black combined with a Satin Ebony Stripe. Only 236 units like this were built in 2009, making the muscle car a unique piece of machinery. The GT500KR is powered by a supercharged 5.4 liter V8 engine that delivers a total of 540 HP at 6,250 RPM and a peak torque of 510 lbs.-ft at 4,500 RPM. The car can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and runs the quarter mile in 12.5 seconds.

This is one of those rare opportunities where one lucky person can be the proud owner of a vehicle once driven by an automotive legend. It’s not going to come cheap, but it will be absolutely worth it.

I have this impression that Carroll Shelby has something to be taken care of. That’s why she decided to auction her car.

They should prepare other features on this Mustang to be more reasonable on its price. Right guys?

Shelby is being auction, and still. I don’t get it. Why do they have to auction that outdated cars? It doesn’t give any modifications and enhancement.

It’s a long way to go. And there will be a lot more to offer before that auction date.

Auction is the only way to own this kind of classic but epic car. But I think the price will be different and might become more expensive.

It will be a good opportunity for those who want to own a Mustang GT500KR. But I think the money will speak if they will own it or not.

What will happen when it is on an auction block? Will the buyers find that attractive?

I’m going to buy this GT500. I hope that the bidding is not yet over, so that I can still join on their bidding process.
