Ford is set to introduce the Mustang GTD to the European market this summer at the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans in June. Following this, the car will tour other marquee European motorsports events like the 24 Hours of Spa and the Goodwood Festival of Speed, before heading to the Nürburgring Nordschleife for a timed run later in the year.

The Mustang GTD has been extensively tested in North America, including grueling sessions at Sebring International Raceway, Road Atlanta, and Virginia International Raceway. According to Greg Goodall, Mustang GTD Chief Program Engineer, these tests are all part of developing a car capable of completing a lap of the Nürburgring in less than seven minutes.

Built to compete with Europe's best, the Mustang GTD is intended to showcase Ford's latest technologies and engineering innovations–much like the role the Ford GT served. An upcoming online series will provide detailed insights into these features, using realistic computer-generated renderings to highlight the car’s cutting-edge suspension and 800 hp supercharged V8 engine. Fans can stay updated through the Mustang or Ford Motor Company channels on various social media platforms.
