Is this one of the wildest versions of the new Ford Mustang yet?
What it appears to look like at this stage is a road-going version of the front-engined Mustang GT3 racer. The two vehicles have virtually identical silhouettes, along with similar air vents and swan-neck rear wings.
The Mustang GTD appears to have plenty of carbon-fibre panels and aerodynamic pieces, as well as huge wheels that are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres. Providing the stopping power are a set of Brembo brakes with bright red calipers.
It’s expected the Ford Mustang GTD will be yet another vehicle built by Canadian motorsports specialists Multimatic.
The firm has previously manufactured the mid-engined Ford GT supercar for the Blue Oval, as well as a number of the growing family of Mustang race cars, among others.
If the Mustang GTD is in fact a road-going version of the Mustang GT3, it’s expected to receive a 5.4-litre version of the Coyote V8. The Mustang GT3 also has a bespoke “short arm” suspension.
At this stage it’s unclear if the Mustang GTD will be a one-off concept car or if it will be made available for purchase.
As previously reported, Ford Australia confirmed the regular road-gong Mustang’s launch for the first quarter of 2024.
“Production for Australia-bound Mustangs is set to begin by late this year,” a Ford Australia spokesperson confirmed to CarExpert.
“Due to significant shipping time between the plant in Flat Rock, Michigan and Australia, we expect first arrivals in Q1, 2024.”
No local pricing or specifications for the next-generation Mustang have been released yet.
