I would like to hear your comparison between the 2. They are listing the KR's for 64999.00. Of course, I will be looking to work a better deal than that. I would think because of the 2010 GT500 having the same spec's (HP/Tq) as the KR's and being at this point 15000.00 cheaper, it would be a no brainer to go with the 2010 GT500. Am I wrong??
This is going to be a long one and I am sure I will miss a few points but I will try to be as thorough as possible.
When I looked under the hood of a 2010 it had a different intake. I know its the same horsepower but I thought I would share that. Furthermore the KR comes with the 3.73 gears as opposed to the 3.55s the 2010's come in if I am not mistaken. The gears alone make the KR an unbelievable rocket.
They specifically spent time revising the suspension in order to turn a 1g turn. I believe they have not spent that much effort for the regular ones. It is a noticeable difference between the two as to how well they turna nd confident the car feels.
Furthermore, with the KR you get a collectible. Ya they are both Shelby's and I do not mean to detract from any of them but the KR gets sent to the Nevada plant to get finished in the actual Shelby factory.
You basically get a collectible for the price difference. In my opinion and most likely in the long run you will not be unhappy with the purchase. You get all the exclusives such as the hood, rims, and carbon fiber lip to name a few that are unaccessible to others. You can go to a car show and see a lot of gt500's but it is a sight to see the KR.
You can definitely do a lot more mod-wise for the money but keep in mind that there will be many more like it.
