Ford has unveiled its most ambitious and advanced Mustang ever: the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD. This limited-edition, street-legal performance car is designed to take on the likes of Porsche, Aston Martin, and AMG in both track and road conditions. It is also inspired by the Mustang GT3 race car that will debut at Le Mans next year.
The Ford Mustang GTD is not just a souped-up version of the regular Mustang. It is a technological tour de force that incorporates features and innovations that go beyond what is allowed in racing. Here are some of the highlights of this ultra-high-performance pony car:
A supercharged V8 engine with a dry sump oil system
The heart of the Ford Mustang GTD is a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine that targets an estimated 800 horsepower. This is the same engine that powers the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 but with some modifications to make it more suitable for track use. One of them is a dry sump oil system that prevents oil starvation during high-speed cornering and improves cooling efficiency.
The engine also features a unique intake manifold, a larger throttle body, and a revised supercharger intercooler. The exhaust system is made of stainless steel and has active valves that adjust the sound level depending on the driving mode. An optional titanium exhaust system reduces weight and enhances the sound even further.
