Ford unveiled at the Monterey Car Week in 2023 the wildest version ever for a Mustang: the GTD. With this version, the American automaker proved that it could build race-ready cars developed for tracks and adapted for the roads. The GTD was based not on the regular Mustang but on the GT3 race car that was unveiled in 2023 at Le Mans, and the three letters are carried over from the IMSA "GTD" racing class, which respects the FIA's GT3 standards.

A small team of passionate engineers started to develop the outrageous Mustang GTD in 2021 in Allen Park, Michigan. Their intention was to create a vehicle to tackle European sports cars. In theory, the Mustang was not exactly the best idea. And yet, the team made it. First, they analyzed the exterior and created a new carbon fiber bodywork. It was a form-follow-function concept. There was nothing made just to visually impress. Everything was functional. As a result, the front fascia features a wide and wild-looking apron fitted with a trapezoidal lower cooling area flanked by a pair of air intakes needed to cool the massive front brakes. In addition, a double splitter and a couple of side winglets were installed to improve the front downforce at high speeds. The upper grille sported a honeycomb mesh pattern where the automaker placed the famous Mustang logo, but black instead of silver. On the redesigned hood, the team installed two safety locks and two massive vents closer to the hood. But they didn't want to let the same headlights as on the regular 'Stang, so they put a set of headlights with amber DRLs and LEDs. From its profile, the GTD boasted the most extensive vents ever installed on the front fenders of a Mustang. They were there to extract the air from the wheel wells. At the back, the rear fenders were significantly enlarged and sported air intakes that cooled the rear discs and the gearbox.

Another unusual detail for a vehicle was noticed at the back, where a goose neck-style wing ensured the downforce for the rear axle. Moreover, that was hydraulically controlled and also featured a DRS function. The rear fascia featured more vents for a couple of radiators installed in the area where a regular Mustang had the trunk. Finally, under the bumper, within the diffuser, the automaker installed a pair of wide Akrapovic exhausts.

Inside, the automaker deleted the rear bench seat and installed a pair of high-bolstered sports seats for the front occupants. One of the reasons it did that was because of the gearbox mounted in the back. Power came from the engine via a carbon fiber shaft to it via a transmission tunnel.

Under the hood, Ford installed a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 that was said to develop up to 800 HP (811 PS). The power went to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox built for racing. And yet, the car was made to be completely street-legal. As a result, the 2025 GTD became the most potent road-going Mustang to that date.
