The all-new 2024 Ford Mustang GTD was revealed back in August as something that no one saw coming – what is essentially a street-legal race car with a host of not only unique mechanical upgrades, but also some serious aero tech that’s actually illegal in GT3 racing. Of course, a car that’s intended to hang with the very best sports car on earth at the track isn’t going to be cheap, and the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD boasts an eye-watering price tag of $300,000. However, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that the Mustang GTD has thus far been in high demand, meaning that FoMoCo may ultimately extend its production run.
Originally, The Blue Oval planned on building a total of 2,000 2025 Ford Mustang GTD models, but higher-than-expected demand may prompt it to increase that figure. The GTD – like every other road-going Mustang – is produced at the Flat Rock Assembly plant in Michigan, but is then shipped to Multimatic in Markham, Canada, for final assembly, the same partner FoMoCo utilized when it was building and selling the Ford GT, and those interested in purchasing one must also apply for that privilege and be approved.
Designed to take on the cream of the European sports car crop, the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD is based on the track-only GT3, and is aiming to become the fastest road-going pony car ever built. Ford plans to lap the legendary Nürburgring in less than seven minutes, a goal that seems achievable given not only the car’s extensive use of carbon fiber and aero tricks, but also its special supercharged 5.2L V8 that will crank out more than 800 horsepower.
With a transaxle mounted in the rear, the GTD touts a near 50:50 weight distribution, and is packing a host of suspension upgrades including a short-long arm front setup, an integral link pushrod and rocker arm rear suspension, and inboard Adaptive Spool Valve shock absorbers and coil springs. At the moment, the Mustang GTD is expected to launch in late 2024 or early 2025.
