The 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition debuted last week ahead of the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, and celebrates the original model that was dressed in Brittany Blue with Wimbledon White stripes. Like the Shelby GT350 Heritage Edition before it, this new variant of the 760 horsepower Super ‘Stang is likely be a centerpiece in the garage of any Mustang enthusiast. And we’re happy to report that it comes with (almost) no compromises from the standard model in terms of options and content. So, if you wanted to option your S550 Mustang GT500 Heritage Edition with the $18,500 Carbon Fiber Track Package, the answer is yes, collectors, you can. 

2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition Options

“The painted black roof is the only thing you can’t get with the Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition,” said Ford Mustang marketing manager Jim Owens to MC&T. “You have the option to do that on standard Mustang and GT500, but that’s the only option combination that’s not valid on the Heritage Edition.”

Unfortunately the only other option that customers can’t order on the GT500 Heritage Edition is the similarly named Carbon Fiber Performance Package, which was discontinued after just one model year. And, of course, the Heritage Edition also means sticking with Brittany Blue, while the Wimbledon White stripes can either be a standard vinyl or painted on by hand for an additional $10,000. Yup, ten grand.

The 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition will also be available to the cordial customers of Canada.

“I’ve allocated some (Heritage Editions) to Canada… they still have the Raptor and Shelby dealers up there,” said Owens.

2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition Pricing And Availability

The 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500 will have a starting MSRP of $73,465 USD in the US market, plus a $1,195 destination fee and $2,600 Gas Guzzler Tax, bringing the total to $77,260 USD, before options. Adding the Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition package is an additional $2,140 with the vinyl stripes, while the GT500 Heritage Edition package with hand-painted stripes comes in at $12,140.

So you’re looking at just under $90,000 USD out the door for the latter. Add the Carbon Fiber Track Package, and a few other options, and you’re pushing beyond $110,000 USD. Keep that in mind when the C8 Corvette Z06 comes out next year, or having the opportunity to option a one-of-one Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye with 807 horsepower.

Dealer orders for all 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 muscle cars opened on Monday, November 15, with vehicles on sale Spring 2022.

As an update for the 2022 model year, the Mustang Shelby GT500 also adds Ford Performance exclusive Code Orange – a hue that’s only shared with the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ford GT supercar.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
