It’s safe to say that some Mustangs are more special than others. A case in point is the 2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350, which YouTuber Ben Hardy highlights in his latest video. This presentation looks at the ins and outs of the last year of the GT350 and what makes the Heritage Edition stand out from other sports cars.
Hardy visits a Ford dealer in Utah to check out a low-mileage example.
What Is The Heritage Edition Of The 2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350?
To celebrate 55 years of Shelby Mustangs, Ford added the Heritage Edition Package to the options list for the GT350’s final year. Available only with Wimbledon White paint, the add-on included dual Guardsman Blue racing stripes.
Other exterior accents include color-keyed badging and “GT350” stripes across the rocker area. However, the repetitive GT350 markings on the front fenders (including the factory badge behind the vertical air vents) could bother some. Inside, the GT350 gets a dash-mounted badge with the chassis number.
Driving The 2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350
Hardy takes the Shelby Mustang GT350 out for a short drive, but this is enough time to hear the glorious exhaust sound coming from the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V8. The output of 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque is perfectly matched to the six-speed TREMEC gearbox.
Meanwhile, praise flows for a powertrain that delivers revs up to 8,250 RPMs, calling the GT350 “buttery smooth.” Hardy adds, “This car makes you look like a pro.” He admits to some bias, being that he already owns a 2020 GT350. Finishing off the video, he says his only complaint is the front suspension compared to the GT500, but the engine more than makes up for it.
How Much Is A Ford Shelby Mustang GT350?
For the 2020 model year, Ford charged a base price of $59,140 for the Shelby Mustang GT350. Adding the Heritage Package tacked on another $1,965. Uncoincidentally, 1965 was the first year of the Shelby Mustang. All in, the Mustang in Hardy’s video stickered at $66,490.
Yet, it’s no surprise that the dealer is offering it for more at an asking price of $75,720. A review of Bring a Trailer reveals that this amount isn’t totally out of line. A similar car with 1,200 miles sold for just under $70,000 in February, while one with 78 miles sold for $80,000 in October.
