In tribute to Shelby, Ford introduced the 2022 Shelby Mustang GT500 Heritage Edition, fusing modern performance with nostalgic “Shelby-isms.” While not altering its performance, this special edition captivates with retro styling, featuring a striking Brittany Blue finish and customizable racing stripes in Wimbledon White or Absolute Black.
The GT500 Heritage Edition pays homage to Shelby’s legacy, offering hand-painted or vinyl racing stripes, with the option of adding custom side stripes. Under its eye-catching exterior, it packs a punch with a 760-horsepower 5.2L V8 engine and a seven-speed Tremec dual-clutch transmission, delivering 625 lb-ft of torque. This model showcases the spirit of Shelby’s iconic creations, offering enthusiasts a modern-day taste of classic muscle car nostalgia.
Prior testing has indicated that the 2022 GT500 is capable of posting 0-60 MPH times of only 3.4-seconds. For reference, this is a full 3-seconds faster than the 1967 GT500, to which the 2022 Heritage Edition pays homage. The 2022 Shelby Mustang GT500 Heritage Edition has also recorded a blistering ¼ mile time of just 11.3-seconds, with a top speed of 132 MPH.
This 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition, currently available for auction on Bring A Trailer, is no exception and is a must-have for all Mustang enthusiasts and collectors. It showcases a Brittany Blue Metallic exterior with Wimbledon White stripes, complemented by Ebony leather and Miko suede interiors with Dove accents.
Notable features include the Carbon Fiber Track Pack, the Technology Package, carbon-fiber 20-inch wheels, high-performance Brembo brakes, Recaro front seats, a premium Bang & Olufsen 12-speaker audio system, and the SYNC 3 infotainment system with built-in navigation. A passenger-side dashboard plaque proudly displays the chassis number as N0260 and is adorned with the signatures of Aaron Shelby and Edsel Ford.
The supercharged 5.2-liter Predator V8 engine incorporates an air-to-liquid intercooler, an engine oil cooler, and a cast aluminum intake manifold. It comes factory-rated with an impressive output of 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque. Power is efficiently transmitted to the rear wheels through a Tremec seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and a Torsen limited-slip differential with 3.73:1 gearing. The car also boasts an active dual exhaust system with quad polished outlets.
This 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition is a striking tribute to the indomitable Carroll Shelby and is offered in pristine, as-new condition with less than 2,800 miles on the odometer. Meticulously cared for and regularly serviced, it showcases truly exceptional condition and represents an outstanding addition to any collection of modern muscle cars.
