Ford Motor Co. in Dearborn announced the expansion of the Mustang lineup, adding a new limited-edition 2022 Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition, the first-ever Mustang Coastal Edition, and Ford Performance exclusive Code Orange paint.

The first Mustang Shelby GT500 debuted in 1967 when American racer and entrepreneur Carroll Shelby modified his Mustang GT350 to craft the first-generation GT500 with a modified 428-cubic-inch V8 inspired by his team’s 1-2-3 finish at Le Mans.

Paying homage to the original, the limited run of GT500 Heritage Edition fastbacks will be finished in a classic and exclusive Brittany Blue exterior paint with two different Wimbledon White exterior stripe options:

  • Painted over-the-top racing stripes with unique GT500 logo (also available in Absolute Black).
  • Vinyl over-the-top racing stripes with unique vinyl side stripe featuring GT500 logo.

Designed and engineered by Ford Performance, this model aims to be the most powerful street-legal Ford car ever built. Dealer orders for the 2022 Shelby GT500 models, including the new Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition open on Monday, Nov. 15, with vehicles on sale Spring 2022.

This vehicle joins the new F-150 Raptor truck, the upcoming Bronco Raptor, and the Ford GT supercar, with Code Orange — the exclusive Ford Performance paint color — now available. It joins eight new colors in the 2022 Mustang lineup, including:

  • Atlas Blue Metallic
  • Brittany Blue Metallic (available on GT500 Heritage and Coastal Editions only)
  • Cyber Orange Metallic Tri-Coat
  • Dark Matter Gray Metallic
  • Eruption Green Metallic
  • Grabber Blue Metallic
  • Mischievous Purple Metallic

The all-new Coastal Limited Edition is available on the 310-turbocharged-horsepower Mustang EcoBoost Premium fastback and convertible. The package adds 19-inch machined-face aluminum with tarnished dark-painted wheels, vinyl side stripes that trace down vehicle and come over the hood, a rear fender side scoop, a black grille, pedestal rear spoiler, Coastal lighted sill plate and Coastal instrument panel badge.

The Coastal package will go on sale in Spring 2022 and is available exclusively in Brittany Blue, Cyber Orange, and Rapid Red. It will be available for an additional $1,995 on the base price of the vehicle.
