Breaking Down the Ford Mustang GTD’s Supercharged 5.2L V8 Engine and Specifications

Although the Mustang GTD hasn’t been track-tested yet, Ford is promising some staggering benchmarks. “The target for this project was clear – go much, much faster than we’ve ever gone before with a targeted sub-7-minute Nürburgring time,” chief program engineer Greg Goodall said in a press release. “This makes it the fastest roadgoing Mustang ever from Ford.” Ford Performance Motorsports global director Mark Rushbrook added that the GTD’s engine and transaxle were developed in tandem with the aero package and body to maximize its performance. “What makes it go is even more compelling than what you can see when it passes you by,” he said. “When you look at the engineering, the aerodynamics, how the powertrain works, the Mustang GTD is a rocketship for the road.”

To keep that rocket ship firmly planted to the road surface, Ford will outfit the Mustang GTD with wide tires and variable traction control. You’ll be kept secure in the Recaro racing seat and enjoy the tactile sensation of operating the optional titanium paddle shifters and rotary dial shifter, which are made from pieces of a decommissioned F-22 fighter jet.
