We have some sad news today, since Ford has announced that production of the Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R will end this fall.
We’re sad to see it go since we love its naturally aspirated 5.2-liter flat-plane-crank V8 that generates a nice 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. The V8 is also only offered with a six-speed manual. The V8 is offered in the GT500, but it’s only offered with an automatic in the supercharged version.
According to Ford, “With the 760 horsepower Shelby GT500 now in full stride, we will finish production of Shelby GT350 and GT350R this fall as planned. This makes the way for new additions to excite our passionate Mustang fans for the 2021 model year — including the limited-edition Mach 1.”
We’re sad to see the GT350 go away, but Ford did recently introduce the new Mustang Mach 1, which has 20 more horsepower than the Mustang GT, at 480 hp. One cool thing is that the limited-edition 2021 Mustang Mach 1 does come standard with the GT350’s Tremec 3160 6-speed manual transmission.
