Difference between mustang shelby and just mustang?

If you are asking about CURRENT Mustangs (as opposed to VINTAGE) there are actually 3 different Mustangs with the name "Shelby" added.

First let me explain the Ford factory produced Mustangs.
I'll list the engine differences, but there are many other standard & optional differences that you can visit the links for details

Mustang=
4.0 Liter V6 with 210 horsepower
( http://www.fordvehicles.com/cars/mus...eatures/specs/ )

Mustang GT=
4.6 Liter V8 with 300 horsepower
( same link as above )

*********now for the "Shelby's"****************
Shelby GT500 (Limited Production)
5.4 V8 with 500 horsepower
The all new, 2008 Shelby GT500 Coupe and Convertible feature an exterior and interior appearance designed to
maintain its leadership in the Sports Car segment. Additionally, with the increased performance provided by the
supercharged and intercooled 5.4L V8 and the SVT-tuned suspension, the 2008 Shelby GT500 delivers the highest
performance Mustang ever produced.

--------------------------------------
Then there are 2 other "Shelby's"

The Shelby GT (Limited production)
Leaves the Ford factory with a regular Mustang GT engine, THEN goes to Carroll Shelby's facility in Nevada for the following "mods":

Shelby Modifications
Ford Racing Performance Parts Content
FR Power Upgrade Package (319 HP)
Cold air intake
Mufflers
Premium fuel calibration
FR Handling Package
Front and rear sway bars
Tuned dampers, springs, bushings
Cross-tower brace
FR short-throw shifter (manual only)
Upgraded rear axle (3.55 AT)
Appearance Item
Hood pins and hood Scoop
Shelby grille insert and Pony badge
Shelby racing and body side stripes
Shelby GT sill plate & floor mats w/ Shelby logo
Shelby dash plaque, under-hood engine plaque
Powered by Ford fender badges
Shelby Light Bar (convertible only)
(((above copied from a secured site. Link unavailable))
*****************************

And (finally)
The Shelby GT500KR (VERY limited production)
Leaves Ford as a GT500 but THEN goes to Nevada & is modified further:

There are many differences other than just the engine differences and the performance differences listed above. One of the main differences is that the Shelby Mustang holds a better resale value and is more likely to become a classic over time. Some of the vintage Shelby Mustangs are considered incredibly rare and fet a very nice price at auctions.

I am not 100% on this but I think that the GT has a softer ride. Grand Touring means it is for comfortable ride.
