Ford Mustang GTD 2025: The Ultimate Supercar with a Mustang Soul – It’s hard to believe it’s been decades since the Ford Mustang was first made. But what if you could get a Mustang that is also a supercar? One with more than 800 horsepower, improved aerodynamics, and the latest suspension technology. The Ford Mustang GTD 2025 gives you just that.
The FIA GT World Challenge Mustang GTD is a limited-edition form of the Mustang GT3 race car that can be driven on the street. The GTD, which stands for “Grand Touring D,” means it can be driven on both the road and the track with only minor changes.
The Mustang GTD isn’t just a regular Mustang with some changes to its appearance. The only parts that are the same between it and the regular Mustang are the supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine and the basic chassis frame. Multimatic developed and built everything else. This is the same company that made the Ford GT supercar.
What’s New for 2025 ?
The Mustang GTD is a brand-new model for 2025, and only a few will be offered. Ford hasn’t said how many cars it will make, but it’s likely to be less than 1000. It will also cost a lot—starting at about $300,000.
However, the Mustang GTD is not just something people wish to gather. On top of that, it shows off what Ford Performance can do with the Mustang base in terms of technology. Many new features and improvements have been made to the GTD to make it one of the most powerful and interesting cars on the road or the track.
Design: Exterior and Interior
The Mustang GTD’s outer form is based on the Mustang GT3 race car, but it also has parts from the Ford GT supercar and the Shelby GT500. The result is a beautiful, powerful look that screams performance.
Carbon fiber makes the body parts, making them lighter and better at moving air. The front bumper has a big face with LED headlights built in and a splitter that sends air to the brakes and engine. A huge bulge in the hood holds the blower and vents that pull hot air out of the engine bay.
From the side, you can see that the GTD has a wide width and flared bumpers. It also has big magnesium wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Also, air vents in the back fenders bring cool air to the transmission and differential. As if the car wasn’t already fancy, the doors open on swan-shaped springs.
The back has a big wing that can change its angle and height based on speed and driving mode to get the best downforce and drag reduction. The wing also has an air stop that helps slow the car down when the brakes are pressed hard. The rear diffuser helps make more downforce and has four built-in exhaust tips that make the V8 engine sound like thunder.
There is a mix of luxury and sportiness inside the Mustang GTD. It has carbon-fiber trim, Recaro bucket seats, digital screens, and leather and synthetic suede seating. A 12-inch computer panel in front of the driver shows important numbers like speed, rpm, gear, lap time, g-force, and tire pressure. Ford’s SYNC 4 infotainment system, which has navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless charging, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system, is run by an 8-inch tablet in the center panel.
You can wrap the steering wheel in Alcantara and use the paddle shifters on the dual-clutch gearbox. It also has buttons that let you choose between driving modes, change the settings for the suspension, turn on the launch control, and switch to track mode. There are buttons for traction control, stability control, exhaust mode, and the start-stop system in the center tube, as well as a rotating knob for changing gears.
The Mustang GTD only has two seats because the back seats were taken out to save weight and make room for a roll cage, making the car safer and stiffer. The trunk has little room since it holds a fire extinguisher and part of the suspension system.
The supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine in the Mustang GTD is what makes it go. It makes over 800 hp and 625 lb-ft of torque. This is the same engine that powers the Shelby GT500, but Ford Performance has tuned it to make it even faster and more powerful.
The engine has a forged aluminum block and heads, plasma-coated cylinder walls, dual overhead cams with variable valve timing, port fuel injection, an intercooler Roots-type blower, and a flat-plane crankshaft that makes it sound unique.
A Tremec eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox works with the engine and can change gears in less than 100 ms. The gearbox is attached to the back axle, making a transaxle. This makes the front and back wheels share the same amount of weight. The transaxle also has a limited-slip differential that is controlled electrically and improves balance and traction.
The Mustang GTD has rear-wheel drive, but it also has a sophisticated torque vectoring system that can change how much power is sent to each rear wheel based on how the car is being driven. This makes it easier for the car to turn corners and lessens understeer.
There is no way the Mustang GTD can’t go faster than 200 mph. It can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds. Ford says it can also go around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in less than seven minutes.
Release Date and Price
It will likely go on sale in late 2024 or early 2025, costing around $300,000. Although Ford hasn’t said how many will be made, it’s likely to be very few, and collectors and car fans will want them very much.
The Ford Performance team will offer a special butler service for the Mustang GTD. This service will include home delivery, invitations to special owner events, and one-on-one help. Along with the car, there will be a limited-edition collection of clothing, accessories, and souvenirs.
Ford did an amazing job with the Mustang GTD because it blends the history and soul of the Mustang with the speed and technology of a supercar. This car knows how to honor the past, enjoy the present, and look ahead to what Ford Performance will do in the future.
