Mustang GTD reservation window closed

Reservations for the $325,000 Ford Mustang GTD are now closed in the U.S. and Canada, with all build slots filled through 2025 and 2026.

The Mustang GTD, priced at $325,000, saw an overwhelming response, racking up over 7,500 applications within just over a month. Ford is now celebrating by taking the supercar on a world tour, debuting in Europe at Le Mans, followed by appearances at the 24 Hours of Spa, Goodwood, and the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

That's a bit of bad news for those who missed the chance to own one of these monstrous Mustangs. The GTD will target over 800 horsepower from its supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine. Ford says applicants cover a broad spectrum, with motorsport enthusiasts making up a significant portion. It's expected that a few prospective resellers might also be in the mix, though Ford has not disclosed any specific terms and conditions for buyers yet.

Interestingly, only 20 percent of the American and Canadian applicants own a "competitor's vehicle with a similar level of performance." This means that current owners of cars like the Porsche 911 GT3 RS are in the minority among those looking to own a Mustang GTD. Additionally, 25 percent of applicants, or one in four, currently own a Mustang.

The Ford Mustang GTD is still in development and hasn't reached production. Ford plans a limited production run and will release a video series detailing the engineering and development of the Grand Touring Daytona. This series kicks off ahead of the supercar's big debut at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The tour aims to continue the GTD's ongoing testing, which started at circuits like Sebring International Raceway and Virginia International Raceway.


Ford has announced that while the online application window in North America is closed, reservations in Mexico have yet to conclude. In fact, they are set to open in June this year. It's unclear how long that window will remain open, but applications in Mexico will begin around the same time as those for customers in Europe and the Middle East. The European debut and subsequent tour will lead to a timed run at the Nürburgring later this year, where Ford aims for the Mustang GTD to lap the Green Hell in under seven minutes.
