This past weekend RK Motors Charlotte debut their custom 800hp, 527 cubic inch, 1967 Shelby GT500 at the Mustang 50th Birthday Celebration in Charlotte. The car, dubbed the “RK527″ certainly looks fantastic, however don’t let that fool you. The subtle looks don’t give much away. So much so she’s being branded the “Shelby Sleeper”. You see, if you simply looked down the body and glanced in the interior you would never guess what was waiting underneath the hood. Instead of following the normal choice of a 428, RK Motors chose to go with a Jon Kaase built all-aluminum 527 cubic inch Boss Nine V8 that churns out a dyno-verified 800 horsepower on pump gas. Trust us, you have never seen a Shelby GT500 tribute like this before.

The RK527 will be driven by Kauffman and co-pilot Johnston on the Hot Rod Power Tour in June. “We’re going to drive it from here to Wisconsin, over 1,400 miles, and then all the way back another 1,400,” said Johnston. For the full story head on over the RK Motors website.
