Ford custom vehicles..........
Carroll Shelby’s name is synonymous with performance, and it’s no big surprise that the special-edition car from Shelby is a Mustang. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the 1968 Shelby Cobra GT500KR (King of the Road), this 2008 Shelby GT500KR is the most powerful production Mustang to date. Under that carbon-composite hood lurks a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 pumping out 540 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.
Each GT500KR is identified by special 40th Anniversary KR badges on the fenders and grille and Shelby lettering stretching across the front of the hood and along the rear portion of the deck lid. A special Shelby VIN tag is affixed to each vehicle, mounted in the engine compartment.
“I’m proud to once again be a part of an historical moment, bringing back the ‘King of the Road’ Mustang, and collaborating with Ford SVT and Ford Racing,” said Carroll Shelby. “I’m committed to continuously upping the ante when it comes to performance, and it’s great to be doing it with Ford.”
Only 1,000 GT500KRs will be sold.
F-150 Foose Edition
Known for his hot rod designs and as the star of the TV show “Overhaulin’,” Chip Foose has worked with Ford behind the scenes for many years, but with this special Foose Edition F-150, the relationship has gone public.
And as expected, this is no typical F-150. Based on the 2WD FX2 Sport, the truck has been lowered slightly and sits on 22-inch wheels. Large fender flares, wide racing strips on the hood, custom grille and dual exhaust give the Foose F-150 a high-performance look. And this truck has the power to backup those looks.
Under the hood is a 450-horsepower supercharged V8 engine with 500 lb-ft of torque, making this the most powerful truck from Ford since the 2004 F-150 SVT Lightning. The Foose Edition F-150 will go on sale in limited numbers early next year.
Funkmaster Flex Edition Expedition
The special-edition Expedition put together by Funkmaster Flex will definitely stand out in a crowd. Designed to be eye-catching, but not over the top, the FMF Expedition sports a two-tone Colorado Red and Black paint scheme accented by orange pinstriping and chrome badging. The custom front and rear fascia are from 3D Carbon, and look is completed with the 20-inch chrome wheels.
Inside, the design cues from the exterior are carried through, with matching Colorado Red center console and trim. Seats are covered in black leather with red-stitching and FMF red logo headrests. FMF floormats round out the package. Adding to the exclusivity of the FMF Expedition, each copy will feature an exclusive numbered dash plaque signed by Funkmaster Flex.
“Once Ford and I finished the concept Expedition, we knew we had something serious! It was poppin’!” said Funkmaster Flex. “We then started showing it at auto shows, to dealers and to my fans and realized we hit on some themes that we could turn into a limited-edition production ride.”
The Funkmaster Flex Expedition will be available in Ford showrooms later this fall.
