Introducing the Ford Mustang GT4 Race Car. Ford has recently showcased this high-performance vehicle as a thrilling option for racing enthusiasts who desire a formidable machine just below the GT3 level. Designed specifically for the SRO GT4 category, the Mustang GT4 takes inspiration from the Dark Horse model and undergoes production by Multimatic, while Ford Performance contributes the powerful 5.0-liter V8 engines based on the renowned Coyote platform. Additionally, this racing beast incorporates top-of-the-line components, such as Multimatic DSSV dampers and a Holinger dog-ring gearbox, to enhance its performance on the track.

One of the standout features of the GT4 is its unique aero package, meticulously crafted to comply with the regulations of its class. Notably, the car boasts a front splitter and canards on the corners, optimizing its aerodynamic efficiency. The front hood is distinguished by a vented section, aiding in heat dissipation and adding a touch of aggression to the vehicle’s appearance. At the rear, an imposing tall wing provides crucial downforce, while four exhaust pipes with large-diameter tips elegantly emerge from beneath the bumper, showcasing the car’s powerful performance capabilities.

Comparatively, the GT3 model exhibits some distinctive design elements that differentiate it from the GT4 counterpart. Notably, it features a pair of large outlets on the hood, contributing to improved cooling. The exhausts are positioned on the sides, just ahead of the rear wheels, adding to the car’s dynamic aesthetic. The rear fenders are flared and incorporate inlets for enhanced airflow. Completing the GT3’s race-ready appearance is a tall rear wing and a purposeful diffuser.

While Ford has not yet disclosed the identity of customers who will acquire the GT4, the vehicle is set to hit the tracks in 2024. In the motorsport world, Proton Competition has already committed to racing the GT3 variant in the 2024 World Endurance Championship, including the illustrious 24 Hours of Le Mans. In the United States, Multimatic Motorsports will compete with two GT3 cars in the IMSA GTD Pro class, showcasing the car’s performance capabilities on American soil.

Ford has also teased the upcoming release of two additional track-only Mustang variants. The Dark Horse S, designed for exhilarating weekend track days, is essentially a stripped-down version of the road-legal Dark Horse model. It receives essential safety modifications, including an FIA-certified roll cage, window nets, electrical disconnects, and a fire suppression system. Taking things a step further, the Dark Horse R model offers even more track-focused enhancements. This variant boasts seam welding for increased structural rigidity, a fuel cell for extended track sessions, and high-performance Ford Performance Parts wheels.
