The all-new and first-ever Ford Mustang GTD is a track-focused street-legal model capable of neck-snapping performance. In fact, the Dearborn automaker says it targets a sub-7-minute Nurburgring time. The machine's performance is aided by the semi-active suspension with multi-link at the rear, a hydraulic control system, and transaxle cooling with a race-inspired cover. The body can be lowered by almost 40 mm (1.6 in) when engaging the Track mode, and the model has an almost 4-inch (~100 mm) wider track than the Mustang GT.
The stopping power is supplied by the carbon ceramic brakes signed by Brembo, and it even has cooling ducts that were mounted below the rear suspension. Available in forged aluminum or forged magnesium, the 20-inch wheels were wrapped in massive 325 mm front and 345 mm rear tires, which aid traction and help the car corner better. The aerodynamics were also further boosted compared to the normal Mustang, as it features an underbody tray made of carbon fiber, hydraulically-controlled front flaps, and an active rear wing mounted on the C-pillars. The door sills, fenders, hood, trunk lid, apron, diffuser, and roof were made of carbon fiber to keep the weight in check.
Ford has yet to release images of the interior. However, it states that the Mustang GTD features Recaro seats, available 3D-printed titanium paddle shifters, a serial numbered plaque, and a rotary dial shifter that were made from titanium sourced from a Lockheed Martin F-22 fighter jet. The rear seats were removed to improve the cargo space and make the car lighter, and buyers will be able to specify it in multiple color combinations. Production will take place at Flat Rock, and from there, it will be taken to Markham in Canada, where it will be "handcrafted for racing-inspired precision by the Ford Performance and Multimatic teams." Built in limited numbers, it will be available in late 2024 or early 2025, and it is expected to have an MSRP of around $300,000.
