The 2025 Mustang GTD may have only recently been unveiled, but early signs suggest that it represents an extraordinary achievement by Ford, especially in an era where EVs are becoming more and more common as automakers look to phase out gas-powered cars. Ford’s newest pony car puts out supercar-rivalling performance numbers while boasting highly dynamic driving characteristics, track-focused components and systems, as well as a stunning design that captivates.
The new GTD is very loosely based on its more common road-legal sibling, the S650 Mustang, but its character was inspired by the Mustang GT3 racer. And, like the race car, it is being jointly developed by Ford and Multimatic Motorsports – makers of the quintessential Ford GT. Ford is aiming for a sub-seven-minute Nurburgring lap time for the road-going coupe. While we’re waiting impatiently for the supercar to launch and etch its name in the annals of automotive excellence, here’s what we’ve learned so far.
2025 Ford Mustang GTD: Key Details
What’s New For 2025?
The Ford Mustang GTD will be a completely newly developed model for 2025. As mentioned, the GTD is heavily inspired by the GT3 racer, which will debut at Le Mans in June 2024. The GT3 racer is itself based on the 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse.
As for the GTD’s purpose, Jim Farley, Ford’s CEO, said the supercar will compete with expensive, high-performance European sports cars from manufacturers like Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Aston Martin – which Ford owned between 1987 and 2007.
What Powertrain Will The 2025 Ford Mustang GTD Have?
The 2025 Ford Mustang GTD will feature a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 borrowed from the Shelby GT500. In the GTD, the engine is tuned to produce more than 800 horsepower and rev to 7500 rpm, with that output handled by an eight-speed dual-clutch rear transmission. Ford aims to make the GTD its fastest ever around the Nürburgring.
In addition to its stupendous power and lightning speed, the GTD will come packed with features that both enhance its appearance and ensure a more thrilling driving experience. These include active aerodynamic elements, titanium exhaust, magnesium wheels, carbon-fiber brakes, and dual-ride height suspension.
Where Is The 2025 Ford Mustang GTD Built?
Ford will build the Mustang GTD at its plant in Flat Rock, Michigan. Once initial work is complete, the GTD will then proceed to Multimatic’s facilities in Markham, Canada, where it will be further fine-tuned by both Ford and Multimatic Motorsports’ experts.
The 2025 Ford Mustang GTD is expected to arrive at US dealership lots in late 2024 or early 2025.
How Much Will The 2025 Ford Mustang GTD Cost?
This kind of precise detailed design doesn’t come cheap, of course.

Hence, pricing will start at around $300,000, with Blue Oval expected to build between 1000 and 2000 units of the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD.
That price tag puts the GTD in competition with the likes of the 2024 Porsche 911 S/T (starts at $291,650), 2024 Aston Martin DB12 ($248,086), and the more affordable 2024 Mercedes-AMG GT63 Coupe ($190,000 (est)).
