2025 Ford Mustang: The Ultimate Street-Legal Supercar – Ford just showed off the 2025 Mustang GTD, a limited-edition race car that can be driven on the road. It is based on the GT3 race car and plays in the IMSA GTD class. The Mustang GTD is the most modern and powerful Mustang ever. It has a transaxle dual-clutch transmission, a semi-active suspension, and active aerodynamics that can be added as an extra. Its supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine makes over 800 horsepower. The Ford Mustang GTD will go on sale in late 2024 or early 2025. It will cost around $300,000 to buy. Ford will only take applications from people who want to buy, just like with the Ford GT.
Design: Exterior and Interior
The Mustang GTD’s body is made of carbon fiber, which makes it lighter and more efficient. The design is based on the GT3 race car, but it has been changed to make it safe for the road. Carbon fiber comprises the side vents, hood, fenders, door sills, top, trunk lid, and back diffuser. Carbon fiber can also be added to the front and back fascias.
It comes with 20-inch forged metal wheels and massive tires that are 325 mm wide in the front and 345 mm wide in the back from the factory. The extra cast magnesium wheels look like the GT3 race car because they are shaped like a Y. There are Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes that work very well to stop the vehicle.
As an extra, the aerodynamics package includes front flaps controlled by hydraulics, a carbon-fiber underbody tray, and an active back wing that can open and close to lower drag or boost downforce. A drag reduction system (DRS) is built into the rear wing and can be turned on and off with a button on the steering wheel.
The Mustang GTD’s cabin is designed to be both fast and valuable. There are six-point belts on the Recaro race bucket seats. The steering wheel has a flat bottom, paddle shifters, and other buttons. The instrument panel is a computer screen that shows essential data like g-force, speed, rpm, gear, and lap time. A rotating dial in the center panel lets you choose from different driving modes, like Normal, Sport, Track, and Wet.
There are also some nice touches inside the Mustang GTD, like a Bang & Olufsen sound system, a SYNC 4 infotainment machine system with a 12-inch tablet, and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Trim made of Alcantara and carbon fiber is used inside the cabin.
The Mustang GTD’s heart is a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine with more than 800 horsepower and can go as fast as 7,500 rpm. Putting the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission at the back axle of the engine helps spread the weight better. It comes with a transaxle cooling system and a carbon fiber driveshaft.
The Mustang GTD also has a variable traction control system that lets the driver change how much power the engine puts out and how much traction control is based on their skill level and the track conditions. You can turn the system off and set it to Low Traction Control (LTC), Medium Traction Control (MTC), or High Traction Control (HTC).
Release Date and Price
The 2025 Ford Mustang GTD will go on sale in late 2024 or early 2025. Ford will only make a certain number of units, and people who want to buy one must apply. The price is expected to start at $300,000.
The Mustang GTD is both a supercar that can be driven on the street and a salute to the Mustang’s racing history. It is the best example of Ford’s speed tech and the spirit of America.
