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.
