Then there's also the first-ever Dark Horse from a little over $59k, solely available with a Fastback body style and lifting the classic 5.0-liter V8 to 500 horsepower delivered through a Tremec six-speed manual with rev-matching. Although there are also 'Premium' trim versions, it might sound like too little for those also accustomed to Mach 1s, Shelbys, and the lot.
But now Ford has set the Mustang family on a different path – the range includes both street-legal and track-only race cars such as the Dark Horse R and Mustang GT4 plus GT3. Regarding the latter, it is the series' pinnacle, and it will help Ford return to Le Mans next year. However, that's not all – a street-legal flagship based on the GT3 is also in tow, and it's called Mustang GTD.
With a price of $300k and the supercharged 5.2-liter V8 from the previous-gen Shelby GT500 targeting over 800 horsepower, that's an excellent show of 'supercar-level' force on behalf of the Blue Oval company. However, for some, even that won't be enough. No worries, you can already envision your 'standout-in-any-crowd' interpretation of the Ford Mustang GTD with help from the imaginative realm of digital car content creators.
And if you want something extreme on top of Ford Performance's already radical treatment, then maybe there's no need to look any further than what Taehee Tim Lee, the automotive 3D artist better known as timthespy on social media, has created after discussing the vision with his friends Verdanta (aka panda._.designz on social media) and Peter Kevin Kargbo (aka karg_z). With a bit of help from them, this creative pixel master went on to adapt his 'Project Velocity' vision to the prerequisites of the Ford Mustang GTD.
In doing so, he also found a new name – Ford Mustang GTD 920 Velocity. We have no idea if the numbers speak about the envisioned (new) power level, which would be cool, indeed. But the Velocity moniker surely applies to the already feisty Mustang GTD project – now it's also slammed, appears even wider, and is clad in lots and lots of barren carbon fiber. By the way, there are also two different color options and even the interior was subtly retouched in the spirit of this aftermarket-style project. Cool, right?
