Development work for the Shelby GT500KR continues at Ford’s Dearborn Development Center, just south of Ford World Headquarters. On Tuesday, September 14th, automotive legend Carroll Shelby visited the facility and had a chance to experience the progress first hand in a development test mule.

It was a good occasion for Ford to release new photos and info of the fastest production Mustang ever built. It will be powered by a supercharged 5.4-liter V-8-powered with an output of more than 550 hp.
