2008 Denver Auto Show: Mustang Bullitt, Shelby GT500KR
Ford had one of the most expansive booths at the show, including such gems as the Mustang Bullitt (created in honor of Steve McQueen and the 1968 390 GT Mustang he drove in the film Bullitt) and the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR.
The GT500KR (pictured) is also a movie star of sorts: a modified version of the vehicle is cast as KITT, the autonomous uber-car in the new NBC Knight Rider TV series. Having seen the TV series, I have a feeling that Ford may regret that casting decision. Maybe they should have used a Focus instead?
