Ford Mustang GTD: Ready to Take Europe by Storm with Nürburgring Run

Published Categorized as Ford No Comments on Ford Mustang GTD: Ready to Take Europe by Storm with Nürburgring Run

Ford has announced that the new Mustang GTD will be shown for the first time in Europe in June before the 24 Hours of Le Mans. After that, it will appear at other car racing events, like the 24 Hours of Spa and the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Later in 2024, it will set a timed lap at the Nürburgring. Ford will also test the Mustang GTD on European roads.

Greg Goodall, Chief Program Engineer for the Mustang GTD, said they tested the car a lot in North America, at places like Virginia International Raceway and Sebring International Raceway. He said they did all this to make a car that can lap the Nürburgring in under seven minutes. Next, they will test it on European roads and at the Nürburgring.

The Mustang GTD has an engine with 800 horsepower. Ford will also create digital stories about the GTD to show its fans its features and how it’s made. These stories will include computer-generated images showing things like the brakes, suspension system, and the powerful V8 engine.

Ford will share these digital stories on social media so that fans can learn more about the GTD. In North America, many people are interested in buying the 2025 or 2026 models. More than 7,500 people have applied to buy one.

Some interesting things came out of the application data. About 20% of the people looking at the GTD are from the motorsport community. Also, one in four potential buyers already own a Mustang, and one in five owns a similar car from a different brand.

Jim Owens, the Mustang GTD Brand Manager, said they wanted to make a car that’s like a race car but can be driven on the road, and they want it to be faster than other cars in Europe. They hope the GTD can lap the Nürburgring in less than seven minutes, which would be a big achievement.
