Yes on first point

No on second point...thems is fightin' words....coming from a silver/blue owner :hysterical:


For me it is the preferred color as that was THE one for the NY show car! :rockon: and also the only Shelby model to be in that color...unlike, red, blue & black

$69K isn't bad at all for something that's essentially still in the wrapper.

And I am sure you could talk them down on the price, there is always some room when they price a car.

While I enjoy my KR, the 2013 is a superior car. If your going to put miles on them I would get the '13 no question. The KRs may eventually see "collectible status" but it'll be after we're long gone.

At these price points, the 2013 is certainly a better value, as it more powerful and a better car overall. Having said that, there are plenty of low mileage KRs available in the mid 50s; at this price point, the KR becomes a more sensible choice.Add a FRPP TVS to it for around $3K and the performance level is much closer to the 2013, in a car that is more exclusive especially here in Canada where only 130 KRs were sold.

Agreed... there have been several times on a cold and snowy winters morning that I have jumped in the KR and said, “I wish this thing had heated seats”.

+1 :yup:

Wouldn't silver be the rarest 07-09 GT500 color since there were none except KRs. :headscratch:

I think Grabber Orange still gets the wink for rarest color. Only 68 in 2009.
