Order applications open for 2025 Ford Mustang GTD priced at $325,000

Interested buyers can now apply for a 2025 Ford Mustang GTD build slot, mirroring the process of acquiring the Ford GT supercar. The Blue Oval mandates that customers submit applications rather than just placing deposits for this race-bred limited edition.

Currently accepting applications from customers in the U.S. and Canada, while Mexico, Europe, and the Middle East are set to follow suit in June. Ford aims to commence North American deliveries in late 2024 or early 2025, with pricing starting around $325,000.

Applications are accepted via a specialized website. Named after the IMSA GT Daytona class, the Mustang GTD debuted at the 2023 Monterey Car Week, directly inspired by the Mustang GT3 race car.

Lacking constraints from racing regulations, the Mustang GTD boasts enhanced downforce, active aerodynamics, increased power, and upgraded brakes with larger wheels compared to the Mustang GT3. Ford collaborated with Canadian racing and engineering company Multimatic, the same partner involved in the previous GT project, in developing the Mustang GTD.

Ford and Multimatic opted for a Mustang coupe body-in-white rather than starting from scratch like the GT. With an 8-speed dual-clutch rear transaxle, the GTD boasts an almost perfect 50:50 weight distribution, a departure from typical Mustang models.

Connected to the transaxle, a carbon-fiber driveshaft, among other lightweight components, links to a 5.2-liter V-8, aiming for over 800 hp. Enhancing aerodynamics, a standard rear wing and front-fender vents are supplemented by an optional aero package, featuring carbon-fiber underbody trays and hydraulically controlled air flaps.

With a widened track, both front and rear, accommodating 325/30 front and 345/30 rear Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires on 20-inch magnesium wheels. Complementing these, a Brembo carbon-ceramic brake system includes 16-plus-inch front rotors with 6-piston calipers and 14-plus-inch rear rotors with 4-piston calipers.
