2025 Ford Mustang GTD Interior Shifts Focus To The Driver

Following its debut, reservations for the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD opened up for U.S.-based customers recently, but since then, the ultimate pony car has embarked on a European tour of sorts. That kicked off with the GTD’s debut at last weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, though it has also been spotted testing at the Nurburgring in Germany as FoMoCo aims to lap that legendary track in less than seven minutes. Meanwhile, we also got our first look at the interior of the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD at Le Mans, too.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the interior of the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD looks a lot like, well, the one present in the regular old, run of the mill S650 that starts out at a fraction of the price of the $300k+ variant. However, there are some noticeable differences here that make the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD much more driver-focused than a regular EcoBoost, GT, or Dark Horse, which is to be expected for a machine that’s designed to be a race car for the road.

As such, the GTD features standard Recaro seats, along with a unique flat-bottom steering wheel. That latter piece features a thick, padded rim with Dinamica inserts, a leather wrap, and carbon-fiber inserts, along with special buttons that enable the driver to adjust suspension firmness and change exhaust modes easily. Behind that special steering wheel lies a pair of 3D-printed titanium shift paddles, which are purposely oversized and feature a hexagonal pattern to make them easier to find and grip – a necessity given the 800+ horsepower 5.2L V8 lurking underhood.

Finally, the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD features two new buttons on the “hero panel,” which is located in front of the rotary gear selector – one for quick access to the Track Apps page, and another, which activates the front axle lift system. Titanium trimming is also available as an option for the rotary gear selector, giving it a more premium feel and look.

“Mustang GTD does far more than elevate the Mustang’s performance envelope. It brings a new more focused, premium feel to the cabin,” said Design Manager Anthony Colard.

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’ll buy another Mustang when the dash doesn’t resemble the gaming unit in some kids basement!

      Well put.

    I agree with Bob Duffy’s comment. The horizontal and ridulous looking LCD screen is a deal breaker for me. If and when I buy a Mustang, it will have to be 2023 or older. If I wanted all that digital nonsense I would just buy an EV.

    I have a 2024 Mustang GT with that screen. I’m living with it and love it now. One of my favorite cars ever. Try it people, don’t be afraid of change. It’s functional. Practical, gives me access to settings, track app, extra gauges, among so much more. Without it, the car would be missing so much.
