Seeing one blue-blooded American pony car A prototype completing the nearly 21 kilometers of Germany’s most famous race track is a bit incongruous, but the new Mustang GTD is built differently. The GTDs supercharged V8 heads into uncharted territory for the modest Mustang; over 800 hp. In addition to the enormous power that Ford is aiming for with this very special Mustang, the company also hopes to achieve it. drive like a racing car. While some special edition Mustangs have done well in the past, the GTD will likely take it up a notch like the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and that is something that cannot be avoided Mustang has ever done successfully before.

At the Nurburgring, this pony comes slowly down the track at a gallop, which is a good place to start for an 800+ horsepower rear-drive Mustang. To keep that herd of horses relatively under control, Ford equipped the GTD with the most advanced suspension ever fitted to a Mustang, and a transaxle to best balance this pony’s weight. While the GTD the Nurburgringyou get a clear view of the transmission cooler that occupies the space where most Mustangs have a trunk. The two fans between the taillights help dissipate heat from the transaxle.

Nerdy stuff aside, the GTD’s exhaust note sounds like an opera singer gargling chainsaws, or a Kodiak bear having a full-blown nervous breakdown. It sounds really good, that’s what I’m trying to say. The Mustang GTD is available with a titanium Akrapovic exhaust, which it is unclear if this test mule has the exhaust, but if this is the stock exhaust, the titanium exhaust will shatter glass with its sounds. Even the induction sound is enticing, as the video captures the Mustang pulling into a corner and the engine and supercharger sucking air down, mixing it with fuel and exploding it in the most symphonic manner. Ah, the joys of internal combustion.

If you’re still reading this and you’re not in a trance-like state of the auditory delights of the Mustang GTD’s exhaust note to date, I’m concerned for your well-being. Just hit play on the video and let the sonorous style of 800 supercharged horsepower take you to internal combustion engine heaven.
