Since its introduction in 1967, the Mustang Shelby GT500 has represented the peak of Mustang performance and has continued to build on the Shelby performance history. The American racer and entrepreneur Carroll Shelby pushed his renowned Mustang GT350 model further in 1967 to construct the first-generation Shelby GT500 with a modified 428-cubic-inch V8 inspired by his team's 1-2-3 finish at Le Mans.
Carroll Shelby described the first Shelby GT500 as "the first true automobile I'm proud of." The Shelby GT500 is as legendary now – as the most powerful and technologically advanced Mustang ever – as it was in its original incarnation 55 years ago. The limited run of 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition fastbacks will be dressed in a classic and distinctive Brittany Blue exterior color with two different Wimbledon White exterior stripe choices, paying homage to the original 1967 Shelby GT500.
The 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, designed and engineered by Ford Performance as the most powerful street-legal Ford ever created, leverages world-class muscle and powertrain innovations to achieve supercar performance levels. A first-in-class 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox, race-bred control methods, and enhanced driving modes are among the features.
Orders for the 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500 models, including the new Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition, will be accepted beginning November 15, with vehicles going on sale in spring 2022.
