The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and the Ford Mustang Bullitt, two of the most distinctive versions of the pony lineup, have officially ended production. A Ford spokesperson confirmed to Ford Authority Sunday, the two cars were put on the pasture “at the end of last year”, without however sharing the exact dates.
This news is not a surprise. Ford confirmed the demise of the GT350 in October 2020, likely to make room at the top of the Mustang lineup for the more powerful and capable Shelby GT500. And with the arrival of Mach 1, the Bullitt was laid off.
Yet we are going to miss these cars. The GT350 was a return to track dominance for the Shelby name, with an excellent chassis and a 526 horsepower flat-cranked V8 engine that could spin at 8,250 rpm. And contributor Matt Farah called the Bullitt, a tribute trim to the 1968 film of the same name, a car that “doesn’t need nostalgia to be great.”
With the next generation Mustangs around the corner, we don’t expect the GT350 name to be dead for long. It will likely return in a similar track-ready capacity, although it’s unclear at this time whether this wonderful 5.2-liter Voodoo engine will accompany it. Only time will tell.
