most likely the clutch

It does sound like your clutch is slipping, but it should not smell like burning oil unless the rear main seal is leaking and has got onto the clutch. Are there any oil spots under the car? Best solution is take it to a shop you trust and have it checked out. If it is the clutch make sure they replace the rear main seal and slave cylinder while they are in there. The flywheel should be machined so the new clutch can perform properly. As your car is a GT you might want to ask about a better clutch than an OE unit. Costs a little more, but well worth it performance wise..
