It's a sad day for a lot of us. Ford is ending production of the naturally aspirated, flat-plane crank, six-speed manual-only Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R this fall in favor of the 760-hp supercharged Shelby GT500, which is automatic-only.

The GT350's high-revving, naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-8, code-named Voodoo, matched to a six-speed manual transmission, goes to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and does the quarter-mile in 12.2 seconds at 119 mph.

This is a very special car, which among other things, revs to an stratospheric 8,250 RPM and, on the R, offers carbon-fiber wheels (the first production car to have them).

Ford said that ending production of the GT350 and GT350R "makes the way for new additions to excite [its] passionate Mustang fans for 2021 model year – including the limited-edition Mach 1.” It also offered a limited-edition GT350 Heritage Edition, which features a livery like the original 1965 Mustang Shelby GT350.
