Ford Mustang GTD Heads To Famous European Track This Summer

The Ford Mustang GTD debuted back in August 2023 as what The Blue Oval promises will be the most hardcore pony car ever to exist, a machine that is quite literally a street-legal racer. However, there are still quite a few things that we don’t know about this pony(super) car, such as exactly how much power it will produce, nor its exact price or even what kind of lap times owners can expect. However, the Ford Mustang GTD will soon make its European debut in a big way, shedding some more light on at least one of those topics.

European Blue Oval fans will get their first in-person look at the Ford Mustang GTD at the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans, which is set to take place June 15th-16th, and from there, the ultimate pony car will take to the roads for testing purposes. Ford will then truly put the Mustang GTD to the test at Germany’s legendary Nurburgring circuit, where it hopes to record an official lap time of less than seven minutes – which is notable because many manufacturers don’t even bother to try these days.

Following its debut at Le Mans, the Ford Mustang GTD will also make appearances at the 24 Hours of Spa and the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and fans will get to take a deep dive into the new model as well. This will be possible via a new online storytelling series centered around the components and engineering that make the Ford Mustang GTD tick, using life-like computer-generated renderings to illustrate its cutting-edge suspension and supercharged V8 powerplant.

Following the launch of the all-new 2024 Ford Mustang – as well as the California Special and Nite Pony package – in Europe earlier this year, the application window for the Ford Mustang GTD is also slated to open at some point in 2024. The Blue Oval plans to share those details in June, but the application window for North America just closed earlier this week, with 7,500 people putting their name in the proverbial hat for a chance to own one.

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.

    I hope they have the rear wing support issue worked out on the GT3?
