The model was introduced in 2015 as the latest in an intermittent line of high-performance ponies that stretches back to 1965. It features a track-oriented suspension and a 5.2-liter V8 known as the Voodoo that features a flat-plane crankshaft for improved performance and an 8,250 rpm redline good for 526 hp. Unique among Mustang models, it is only available with a six-speed manual transmission.

Dealer orders have already ended for the $61,635 coupe, but production will continue through November, according to Motor1.

For its final year, the GT350 was offered with a Wimbledon White paint and Guardsman Blue stripe Heritage Edition appearance package inspired by the original model and appropriately priced at $1,965.
