Ford Formally Unveils Mustang GT3

Ford has unveiled the Mustang GT3 race car, based on the all-new 2024 Mustang Dark Horse, during a special ceremony as part of this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, June 10-11. 

The automaker also announced plans to enter the GT3 into the iconic endurance race’s FIA GT3 category in 2024, along with an entry in the 2024 World Endurance Championship season under Proton Competition, the German team led by team principal Christian Ried.

“Ford and Le Mans are bound together by history. And now we’re coming back to the most dramatic, most rewarding and most important race in the world. It is not Ford versus Ferrari anymore. It is Ford versus everyone,” said Jim Farley, CEO of Ford Motor Co. 

Multimatic will build and support the GT3s, while M-Sport will assemble the Ford Performance-developed 5.4 L Coyote-based V8 engines. It features a bespoke short-long arm suspension, rear-mounted transaxle gearbox and carbon fiber body panels and an aero package developed to meet GT3 targets.

In addition, the automaker announced a new Ford Performance branding described as a “cleaner, simplified look” that will be integrated across its racing vehicles.
