Ford recently debuted its seventh-gen Mustang, and while this all-new platform represents the most capable generation of the vehicle to date, the Blue Oval has now revealed another model variant that makes even the gen-seven Dark Horse look tame in comparison with the Ford Mustang GTD.
Expected to deliver a sub-7-minute lap time at the Nürburgring, the GTD-spec Mustang takes aim squarely at European supercars like the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Designed and engineered as a collaboration between Ford and Multimatic and developed in parallel with the Michigan marque’s Mustang GT3 race car, the Mustang GTD is a limited-edition, ultra-high-performance model variant that comes loaded with all carbon fiber bodywork with a pronounced active aero kit, carbon ceramic Brembo brakes, an available titanium exhaust, and a first-of-its-kind suspension that adjusts spring rate and ride height settings for track or street conditions. The GTD model also rides on 20” forged aluminum five-arm Y-spoke wheels that can be upgraded to a magnesium option.
At the heart of the Mustang GTD is a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine with a unique dry sump oil system, dual air inlets, and a carbon fiber driveshaft. This forced-induction V8 comes mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission with a rear transaxle. And while Ford has yet to reveal exact numbers, the GTD is expected to generate around 800hp — making it the most powerful production Mustang model of all time, and by a fairly significant margin. A specially-developed hydraulic control system has also been added, as has a transaxle cooling system with a race-inspired cover. If all of this wasn’t impressive enough, Ford has managed to deliver the Mustang GTD with full road-legal status.
Slated for a release in late 2024 or early 2025, the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD will be limited to around 1,000 units in total, all of which we be priced at approximately $300,000.
