The New 2025 Mustang GTD

The Ford Mustang GTD Offers A New Era Of Power & Performance

Few names in the automotive world are as iconic as the Ford Mustang. With its storied history dating back to the 1960s, the Mustang is not just a car – it’s a cultural phenomenon from its debut as the original “pony car” to its evolution into a modern powerhouse. 

Ford has always been synonymous with innovation, precision, and pushing boundaries, and with the introduction of the Mustang GTD, they’ve once again proven their mettle. The 2025 Ford Mustang GTD is a marvel of modern technology, drawing inspiration from the Mustang GT3, which is slated to race in Le Mans next year

Join Bill Brown Ford in Livonia, Michigan, as we delve into this cutting-edge vehicle, heralded as a technological marvel, and see why car enthusiasts everywhere eagerly await its release.

A Glimpse Into The Past

To fully grasp the impact of the Mustang GTD, we must travel back to its inception. On March 9, 1964, the Ford Mustang made its grand debut off the assembly line. Its unparalleled combination of elegance, power, and affordability overtook the American automotive market, paving the way for an all-new category of sporty coupes. When released to the public on April 17 of that year, 22,000 Mustangs were sold on the first day, a staggering number. Since then, various models, such as the GT, Cobra, and Shelby versions, have continued to elevate the Mustang’s legendary status, and now the 2025 limited edition GTD.

More Than a Car, A Technological Marvel

“Impossible dream.” That’s how the team at Ford’s metal storage garage in Allen Park, Mich., described the idea back in 2021. Fast forward to 2023, and Ford has flipped the script on what a Mustang—and indeed any American muscle car—can be. Enter the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD, a jaw-dropping fusion of cutting-edge technology and soul-stirring performance. This is not just a car; it’s a statement, an audacious challenge to the world’s finest European sports cars.

Inspired by the Mustang GT3 race car, the Mustang GTD brings racing technology straight to your driveway. Jim Farley, Ford’s CEO, made it clear: “We didn’t engineer a road car for the track, we created a race car for the road.” The GTD is crafted mainly from carbon fiber, comes with a unique suspension system that can adapt to track or street conditions, features active aerodynamics, and is powered by a supercharged V8 engine.

Peak Performance and Tech

The GTD houses a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine with a staggering redline beyond 7,500 rpm. This power, combined with an 8-speed rear transaxle and carbon fiber driveshaft, promises an impeccable 50/50 weight distribution.

But it doesn’t stop at raw power. Advanced suspension technology and massive Brembo carbon ceramic brakes ensure optimal handling and braking. New to Ford is the Variable Traction Control in track mode, allowing drivers to push the GTD to its limits.

Pioneering Features Not Even Allowed In Racing

The aerodynamic design isn’t just for looks; it’s about performance. From a front splitter to a vented hood to fenders and a hydraulically controlled rear wing, every design feature aims to achieve aerodynamic excellence, allowing the GTD to handle cornering at extreme speeds, achieving unprecedented lap times.

Additionally, the GTD introduces available features that are so advanced that they’re not even allowed in racing. These include a hydraulically controlled front flap to manage airflow and a variable traction control system, letting drivers adjust the car’s performance on the fly without taking their hands off the wheel.

Craftsmanship Meets Technology

When it comes to the interior, the Mustang GTD doesn’t skimp on luxury or technology. The cockpit is finished in premium materials like Miko suede, leather, and carbon fiber. The seats are RECARO, optimized for track days, and the car even features 3D-printed titanium paddle shifters made from retired Lockheed Martin F-22 parts. It also leverages Ford’s latest electrical architecture, offering over-the-air updates and many personalized driving modes.

For those seeking to personalize their GTD, Ford offers a range of interior color combos and special exterior packages. You can even color-match your GTD to a specific sample.

Availability & Price

With an estimated starting price of around $300,000, the Mustang GTD is a considerable investment, but it promises an unparalleled driving experience. Production will be limited, and the cars will be handcrafted for precision by the Ford Performance and Multimatic teams. Expected to hit the market in late 2024 or early 2025, the Mustang GTD is already generating buzz as a collector’s item in the making. 

The 2025 Ford Mustang GTD is more than just a car. It’s a technological marvel, a performance beast, and a challenge to every other high-performance car out there. “Come and get it,” says Jim Farley, knowing what the GTD brings to the table.
