The 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition was just revealed last week, joining a number of new packages and an updated version of the California Special for the new model year ahead of the arrival of the redesigned 2023 Ford Mustang, which is expected to bring a host of revisions to the iconic pony car. The Heritage Edition is a rolling homage to the original 1967 Shelby GT500, sporting special Brittany Blue paint and other nifty touches, all for an MSRP of $76,695. However, Ford Authority readers have the chance to win a 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition for free, thanks to a sweepstakes from the Shelby American Collection.
This isn’t just any old ordinary GT500 Heritage Edition, however – it’s a true one-of-one that’s been further customized by Ford with red-painted pinstripes to accentuate the car’s painted “over-the-top” white stripes, which are a pricey and labor-intensive option. Other notable options include the Carbon Fiber Track Pack, the Technology Package, a GT4 track wing, and Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 tires. Together with Ford’s supercharged 5.2L Predator V8 that churns out 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque, it’s truly the ultimate Mustang.
In addition to all those goodies, the GT500 comes equipped with Ford’s MagneRide suspension, Brembo brakes, 20-inch exposed carbon-fiber wheels (which are also quite pricey), a Torsen limited-slip rear differential with 3.73 gears, active exhaust, Recaro seats, and a B&O Premium Sound System, to name just a few of the many premium features this loaded GT500 Heritage Edition has to offer its future owner.
As if this amazing car wasn’t enough of a sweepstakes prize on its own accord, the Shelby American Collection is also throwing in $25,000 in cash to help cover taxes, as well as a trip to the GT500 Track Attack experience at Ford’s Performance Racing School, where the new owner will learn how to extract all of the car’s performance potential. Better yet, proceeds from the sweepstakes benefit the Shelby American Collection, a not-for-profit museum located in Boulder, Colorado, which aims to preserve Carroll Shelby’s legacy with some truly amazing cars, race records, photographs, and memorabilia from the legend’s glory days in the 1960s.
Those that wish to throw their name in the proverbial hat to win all these goodies can do so by heading over here to secure their entries. Better yet, use the promo code FORDAUTHORITY and score bonus entries – the more one donates, the more bonus entries one receives. This sweepstakes is scheduled to end on September 3rd, 2022, at which time a winner will be chosen. And who knows – it might just be one of our readers!
