2025 Ford Mustang GTD Applications Open In Q2: Exclusive

The 2025 Ford Mustang GTD debuted back in August 2023 as perhaps the most hardcore pony car ever conceived, a machine that is quite literally a race car for the street – as well as one that, in many ways, is more serious than its track-only counterpart, the GT3. Thus far, The Blue Oval has faced tremendous demand for the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD, which may prompt it to extend the planned 2,000-unit production run of that ultimate model, as Ford Authority exclusively reported last October. Now, Ford Authority has exclusively learned when the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD application window is set to open, too.


According to this memo, that process is currently scheduled to begin in Q2 of 2024, at which point interested customers will be able to express their interest in purchasing one of these road-going high-performance machines – which we got our first real-world peek at earlier this month. Of course, only a lucky few will be approved to purchase a Mustang GTD – much like the now-discontinued Ford GT – but with a price tag of $300,000, not too many folks will be able to afford one, anyway.

For that large outlay of cash, buyers will get a Mustang that offers up far more performance than any production pony car ever has in a number of ways aside from its eye-watering price tag. 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 with the new GTD, a goal that seems achievable given its extensive use of carbon fiber and aero tricks, coupled with the 800 horsepower output from its special supercharged 5.2L V8, a near 50:50 weight distribution, and 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.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
