First Drive: This Reimagined Shelby Mustang Delivers Classic Muscle-Car Style With Modern Agility

The KR initials said it all. Back in 1968, Ford’s Shelby GT500 KR was the undisputed “King of the Road.” With its 7.0-liter big-block Cobra Jet V-8 cranking out close to 400 hp, it was the fastest, most potent version you could buy of the Mustang, one of the greatest muscle-car models of the era. Fast forward to 2023 and there’s a new Shelby GT500 “King of the Road” grabbing the attention of enthusiasts. This one, the latest creation from Florida-based Revology Cars, also comes with a big V-8, but with 710 hp and a touch more modernity.
