The 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500 serves as an upscale version of the year’s standard GT offerings, with an abundance of power on tap. With enough technical bravado to make those at NASA’s engineering department envious, and an appearance striking enough to turn every head, there is little not to love about the 2022 Shelby GT500.
Underneath the 2022 Shelby GT500’s hood is a fire-breathing engine, quite appropriately referred to by Ford as the “Predator”. This powerplant is a 5.2L supercharged Cross Plane Crank V8, capable of churning out 760 horsepower, and 625 lb-ft of torque. The Predator comes paired with a Tremec 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, which ultimately directs the GT500’s output through a set of 3.73 Torsen rear axles.
The 2022 GT500’s steering, suspension, and braking systems are also quite impressive, warranting more than a fleeting glance. Some of the most noteworthy technical aspects of these systems include the addition of Brembo high-performance brake calipers, MagneRide Damping, and selectable power-assisted steering.
Cosmetically, the 2022 Shelby GT500 is equally impressive, featuring sweeping body lines, retro-Esque sequential tail lights, and an aggressive front facade. This look is further accented by the fitment of a custom hood, complete with inset vents.
This 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 currently auctioned on Bring A Trailer was acquired from Perry Ford of National City in California. The car has only been driven for 60 miles and comes equipped with several features, including HID headlights, Brembo brakes, Recaro seats, and a SYNC 3 infotainment system.
The exterior of the car is Eruption Green Metallic with Absolute Black stripes, and it has a louvered hood, LED taillights, and quad polished exhaust outlets. The Carbon Fiber Track Package adds a manually adjustable carbon-fiber wing, a revised front fascia with splitter wickers, and carbon-fiber 20″ wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. The car has a four-wheel independent suspension and a MagneRide damping system, and the interior features Recaro seats with Ebony leather and suede inserts, a rearview camera, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
The 5.2-liter Predator V8 engine is hand-assembled and rated at 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque, with power delivered to the rear wheels via a Tremec seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and a Torsen limited-slip differential with 3.73:1 gearing. The passenger-side dashboard plaque identifies this GT500 as chassis 1031, and the digital odometer indicates 60 miles, with 45 of those added by the selling dealer.
