Ford Mustang GT3 Production Increased To Meet Demand

The new Ford Mustang GT3 debuted last June as one of many Dark Horse-based racers set to take on motorsports events across the globe over the coming years, one that’s powered by an enlarged version of the naturally-aspirated 5.0L V8 Coyote engine, in this guise displacing 5.4 liters. It sends power to a rear-mounted transaxle gearbox, while a bespoke short-long arm suspension resides beneath carbon fiber bodywork and a unique aero package, making it quite different from its road-going brethren. As Ford Authority reported last July, the Ford Mustang GT3 debuted to strong demand from the onset, which has prompted FoMoCo to build more examples of the new racer, according to SportsCar365.

Ford Mustang GT3 New Liveries 2024 - Exterior 003 - Top Down

As the Ford Mustang GT3 prepares to make its debut at this weekend’s Rolex 24 at Daytona with fresh liveries and a full driver lineup, Ford Performance global motorsports head Mark Rushbrook acknowledged in an interview that interest in the racer remains “very high,” even though for now, its pair of customer teams – Proton and Dinamic GT – will be the only two competing in the model for the entirety of the 2024 season. However, the automaker – along with partner Multimatic – plan to ramp up production moving forward to meet demand.

“With our late homologation date, we were limited on the number of cars we could build because you don’t want to risk too much and build too many cars too early and find out you have an issue,” Rushbrook explained. “We’re limited on the number of cars that are built in time to support a full 2024 season. But we are ramped up to build two a month. We will keep building to demand and I think we’re going to be busy for quite some time to meet that demand.”

As for how many units that might consist of, Larry Holt – Vice President of Multimatic’s Special Vehicle Operations – noted that “I don’t think I’m at risk building 16-20 cars. Our business plan is to sell 30 [in the first two years]. Ford and I said 30. It will be more than that, maybe 40-45 cars, because there’s that many people that want them.”
