Ford Mustang® GT3
Bred to Race.
The iconic Ford Mustang is ready to join the biggest battleground in sportscar racing where it will go head-to-head against some of the greatest GT3 manufacturers in the world.
Since its debut in 1964, Mustang has proven to be one of the most versatile cars in racing history, with success in sportscar racing, stock car racing, drag racing, rallying, and drifting.
Built for GT3 competition by Multimatic Motorsports and Ford Performance, the new Ford Mustang GT3 race car features a bespoke short-long arm suspension, Multimatic DSSV dampers, rear-mounted transaxle 6-speed gearbox, carbon fibre body panels, as well as a unique aero package developed to meet GT3 targets. It is powered by a 5.4-litre Coyote-based V8 engine, developed by Ford Performance and built by World Rally Championship partners, M-Sport.
Development of the Mustang GT3 has focused on creating an affordable, durable race car that is simple to maintain and run by customer teams. It is vitally important that a GT3 car is easy to drive for amateur racers as it is often the stint by the FIA Bronze-rated driver that will make or break the result in Pro-Am racing. With strong factory support, customers who choose to race the Mustang GT3 will have a car that is capable of making the same lap time at the end of a stint as at the beginning.
The new race car made its global public debut at Le Mans, ahead of the 2023 Centenary Edition of the world-famous 24-hour race, before continuing its comprehensive test programme in readiness for the 2024 season.
From 2024, Mustang GT3 will be eligible to race in multiple global series including the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, the FIA World Endurance Championship, GT World Challenge, and at marquee events such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 24 Hours of Spa, the Nürburgring 24 Hours and the Bathurst 12 Hour.
The Ford Mustang GT3 will feature as a two-car factory effort in the 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and will run in the hands of customer teams across the globe; the first of which, Proton Competition, has committed to the 2024 FIA World Endurance Championship*, which includes the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The Mustang GT3 will make its competition debut at the 2024 Rolex 24 at Daytona. This two-car factory effort, run by Multimatic Motorsports, renews a winning partnership with a long, shared history of racing success, most famously with the Ford GT.
Now it’s Mustang’s turn.
