In 2008, three new models join the Shelby GT-500 and Shelby GT: the Shelby GT-500KR (King of the Road) coupe, which celebrates its 40th anniversary; the Shelby Super Snake GT500 upgrade, which boosts the performance of the GT500; and the Shelby GT Barrett Jackson edition, which is a limited run of 100 black cars with red stripes.

The GT500KR has a distinctive hood with vents and pins, special 18 inch wheels, a Ford Racing engine that delivers 540hp, and GT500KR badges on various parts. The Super Snake GT500 has similar features, but also has Super Snake badges and an option to increase the engine power to 600 or 725hp.

The GT-500 has a supercharged V8 engine that produces 500hp at 6000rpm, and is available as a coupe or a convertible. It comes in seven colors: Torch Red, Alloy dark gray, Vista Blue, Performance White, Black, Grabber Orange, and Vapor silver. It also has fog lamps, racing stripes, Shelby gas cap, front fascia, rear spoiler, aluminum interior accents, Shaker 500 Audio System, Sport leather seats, leather wrapped steering wheel, and an anti-theft system. Some of the optional features are ambient lighting, interior upgrade, Shaker 1000 Audio System, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, touch screen DVD based navigation, HID headlamps, and stripe delete options.

The Shelby GT is based on the Mustang GT premium, but with many of the Shelby GT500 options added for about $15,000. It is offered as a coupe or a convertible in Vista Blue with silver stripes for the standard version as a coupe only in Grabber Orange with silver stripes for the California edition, and as a coupe or convertible in Black with red stripes for the Barrett Jackson edition.
