North American Ford Mustang GTD Application Window Closed

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 race car. Thus, as one might expect, more than a few fans eager to purchase one lined up and put their name in the proverbial hat when the Ford Mustang GTD application process opened up just over a month ago – at least, for customers located in North America. Now, however, that application window has officially closed.

The North American Ford Mustang GTD application window closed yesterday, May 21st, The Blue Oval has announced, and ultimately, FoMoCo secured a substantial 7,500 applications from those interested in purchasing a 2025 or 2026 model. According to the automaker, those applications were filled out by folks with a broad range of backgrounds, though many – 20 percent – come from the world of motorsports. Additionally, one in five applicants say they already own a competitor model with similar levels of performance.

“With Mustang GTD, we set out to build a road-going race car with the heart of a Mustang and the will to beat Europe’s best. Since opening applications to North American consumers, we’ve seen customers respond to that motivation,” said Mustang GTD Brand Manager Jim Owens. “Whether they own a rival’s sports car or have another Mustang in the stable, the Mustang GTD’s race-derived performance is registering.”

As Ford Authority previously reported, the founder and CEO of Hennessy Performance – John Hennessey – is among those 7,500 applicants trying to secure a Ford Mustang GTD, which will feature a price tag north of $300k when it launches. Those chosen for this honor will still have to place a hefty deposit down for the privilege, while dealers will receive a tidy sum for selling one, too. However, for those wanting something similar and yet perhaps a touch cheaper, The Blue Oval is at least considering a “lite” version of the Ford Mustang GTD, as Ford Authority exclusively reported earlier this month.
