Is The 2022 Shelby Mustang GT500 Heritage Edition Worth It?

Underneath its overtly striking appearance, the 2022 Shelby Mustang GT500 Heritage Edition is every bit as much the dominant performer as its standard GT500 counterpart. Beneath the GT500’s hood resides a fire-breathing 5.2L V8, which produces 760 horsepower, as well as 625 lb-ft of torque. This engine’s power is delivered downstream through a seven-speed Tremec dual-clutch transmission.

The 2022 Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition was marketed for a retail price of $78,835, which is $2,140 above the base GT500’s asking price, after factoring in the vehicle’s mandatory “gas-guzzler tax” and destination fee. Those opting for hand-painted stripes were subject to an additional $10,000 fee. But is it worth it? That’s what we are going to answer in this video courtesy by the folks at savagegeese as they give us an in-depth look at the car.
