The Ford Mustang is one of the most important cars in American history. It launched an entire segment of affordable, fast, and exciting cars that still dominate the streets today, and it’s driven and loved by all kinds of car enthusiasts, from those who want a fun and simple sports car experience, to those who want a level of performance that few other cars can achieve.

Starting with 2024’s 24 Hours of Daytona, Ford is introducing the new Mustang GT3, a car that takes the Mustang’s incredible performance capability and makes it track-ready. Not only will it compete in factory-backed racing and herald Ford’s return to global sports car racing, but it will also be available for customers who want to race themselves.
