And Looks To Be Driven By A Ford Performance Executive

Ford Mustang GTD Spied

The 2025 Ford Mustang GTD will be the pinnacle of the Mustang family, beyond any Shelby, performance pack, or other special edition. This is because the Mustang GTD is highly based on the Mustang GT3 race car but with modifications that would otherwise be illegal to use on the track. Much like the Ford GT before, the Mustang GTD will be the poster car of just about any young car enthusiast. A Ford Mustang GTD was recently spotted in Virginia with the global director of Ford Performance standing beside the muscle car, and it looks exquisite.

Images were recently posted on Instagram and then to the Mustang7g forum, with some spectacular angles of this street-legal Mustang race car showing off just how epic the Mustang GTD is, and it certainly stands out against all the other S650 Ford Mustangs on the road thanks to its carbon fiber body and advanced aerodynamics. At the heart of the Mustang GTD’s aerodynamic performance is its Drag Reduction System, which uses a hydraulic system that can change the angle of the rear wing and activate flaps under the front of the car to find exactly the right balance between airflow for speed and downforce for grip.

Using a new 5.2L supercharged V8, the GTD has a targeted power output of 800 horsepower, though it’ll likely end up being more when all is said and done. The engine features dual air inlets, fed by the supercharger, sending forced air into a combustion chamber where titanium-rodded pistons will push as fast as 7,500 RPM. Much of the front engine bay has been cleared to accommodate cooling, allowing for superior airflow. Power is sent through an 8-speed rear-mounted transaxle, where the trunk used to be, to achieve near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution.

This particular 2025 Ford Mustang GTD in question has been finished in black, which gives it a stealthy appearance, almost like a “normal” Mustang Dark Horse or GT. A longer look at it and you start to notice the massive wing at the back and all the other components that would otherwise ensure the GTD stands out on the road. But, since each Mustang GTD is hand-built with a starting price of $300,000 USD, very few will get to own one.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
