The Ford Mustang GT3 will soon show what it’s made of out on the racetrack. Based on the street legal 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse, the Mustang GT3 recently debuted as FoMoCo’s latest race-ready pony car and is ready to take plenty of checkered flags thanks to its naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote, tuned to displace 5.4 liters. In fact, this race car will take The Blue Oval back to Le Mans, but it’s clear that the Mustang GT3 won’t be alone in Ford’s racing efforts – it will be joined by the all-new Ford Mustang GT4 racer, which was recently teased ahead of its debut later this month.
The forthcoming Ford Mustang GT4 will break cover at Spa-Francorchamps Circuit in Belgium, an iconic racetrack steeped in motorsports history, on June 28th, 2023. The Mustang GT4 also takes cues from the Mustang Dark Horse, and will be eligible for competition by private customers in GT4 class championships internationally. Ford Performance partnered with Multimatic Motorsports to make this race car happen, and the latter will also be responsible for building the car for customers.
Mark Rushbrook, Ford Performance Global Motorsports Director, will be present at the Mustang GT4’s reveal, as will SRO President, Stephane Ratel. It will also be accompanied by the Mustang GT3 to allow fans another glimpse of the race car.
Other than this teaser image, which shows off the Ford Mustang GT4 front fascia in profile, not much is known about the race car. However, we expect that it will be similar to the Mustang GT3 in terms of powertrain, equipment and styling. As previously reported by Ford Authority, the Mustang GT3 could get a street legal variant, which would further broaden the Dark Horse motorsports push beyond what the automaker previously outlined.
