As the application window for the first two years of Mustang GTD production closes, Ford is gearing up to bring its most advanced and daring Mustang to Europe. The Mustang GTD will debut at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, followed by rigorous testing on European roads, culminating in an official timed run at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in late 2024.

Extensive Testing and European Road Trials – 

Greg Goodall, Chief Program Engineer for the Mustang GTD, emphasized the comprehensive testing already conducted in North America. “We’ve tested the Mustang GTD extensively, including laps at Sebring International Raceway and Virginia International Raceway. This has all been in service of engineering a car that can lap the Nürburgring in under seven minutes,” Goodall stated. The next phase involves testing on European roads and dedicated sessions at the Nürburgring, preparing for a timed run later this year.

As the Mustang GTD arrives in Europe, the continent is gearing up to accept applications from prospective owners. The North American application window closed on May 21, with over 7,500 people applying to purchase a Mustang GTD for the 2025 or 2026 model years. The applicants represent a diverse group, a significant portion coming from the motorsport community. One in four applicants are current Mustang owners, while one in five own a competitor’s high-performance vehicle.

Jim Owens, Mustang GTD Brand Manager, expressed enthusiasm about the response: “With Mustang GTD, we set out to build a road-going race car with the heart of a Mustang and the will to beat Europe’s best. Since opening applications to North American consumers, we’ve seen customers respond to that motivation. Whether they own a rival’s sports car or have another Mustang in the stable, the Mustang GTD’s race-derived performance is resonating.”
