A Mustang supercar that will take on the most sophisticated machinery from Europe.
“We take what we’re really good at, like a Mustang, and we do the unthinkable,” Farley said.
Ford has developed the GTD road car with the new GT3 race car, set to debut at Le Mans next June, as a start.
“Our idea behind this car was, let’s take a race car and not change anything for the street,” said Farley.
“In fact, let’s add some stuff that’s outlawed in racing, for the street. So it’s like a different kind of project.
The Mustang is the best-selling sports coupe in the world, and since its debut in April 1964, has always been the everyman’s semi-affordable American pony car.
The GTD street supercar takes an American icon where it has never gone before.
Farley was looking at a 40-percent scale model of the Mustang GT3 race car the company was developing with Multimatic, with Multimatic founder Larry Holt.
Farley said, “We've got to make a road car version of that. What do you think?”
