  • Carroll Shelby's 2009 Mustang GT500KR - image: Vicari Auctions

    The death of automotive icon Carroll Shelby has created increased demand for anything with the Texan’s name on it, especially cars. While a Shelby American car signed by Carroll Shelby is valuable, a car actually owned by him is quite a bit more valuable. Up for grabs at the upcoming Vicari Biloxi Auction is a 2009 Shelby GT500KR, originally titled to Carroll Shelby himself and delivered to his ranch for personal use. It’s not clear how long Shelby owned the car, or how many miles he racked up, since it was sold to its current owner shortly thereafter. Since then, the car has seen...
