California Special adds excitement with the GT Performance Package option
From the first generation Mustang, the California Special has represented a uniquely regionalized appearance package with special styling cues. The updated 2022 Mustang GT California Special embodies this tradition.
Based on the 2022 Mustang GT Premium fastback and convertible models, the latest California Special Appearance Package pays homage to the original version’s tinted grille, racing side stripes and rear fender vent.

A California Special badge with Ebony Black and Race Red lettering adorns the trunk lid, while the ‘GT / CS’ badge honeycomb grille offers a unique look. A larger front splitter from the GT Performance package underlines the icon’s maneuverability.
A high-performance rear wing from the GT Performance package is available for the fastback model, while spoiler removal is standard for the California Special convertible. The California Special wears unique 19-inch five-spoke painted machined wheels. In addition to the bonnet, this special edition features a distinctive strut tower reinforcement and California Special badge atop its 5.0-liter V8 engine.
Interior fittings include rich door inserts with black Miko® suede trim and seats finished in suede with embossed “GT / CS” logo and red contrast stitching, along with custom embroidered “GT / CS” floor mats. The instrument panel is finished in hexagonal carbon aluminum with a distinctive California Special lettering on the passenger side.
For the first time in the California Special, the GT Performance package is now available, enabling greater handling and driving dynamics for the most capable California Special ever.
