Racing in Misano: An American Car on the Italian Circuit
The Ford Mustang GT3 was unveiled in June and we have been shown numerous images of this iconic pony car. But, now the Italiansupercarvideo on YouTube channel has presented us with our first genuine experience of its capacity and wow, do we relish it!
The Dinamic GT team, based in Italy, have declared their plans to utilize this GT3 vehicle in the upcoming 2024 GT World Challenge Europe Series. As witnessed in the accompanying video taken at Misano, a 2.5-mile circuit situated in northern Italy, some of the other race cars that were on the track were captivated by the impressive V8 power of the Mustang leaving the paddock. Even members of rival teams took notice, as illustrated in the beginning of the video.?This car definitely makes an impact!
Credits for this momentous sound is credited to the naturally aspirated 5.4-liter V8 engine. Though no true power output is detailed by Ford, GT3 classifications carry a highest output of 600 horsepower; thus, it can be predicted that the Mustang invests near that sum. Beyond being simply a conventional Mustang GT with wings, the GT3 embraces a transaxle rather than fixating a direct transmission to the powerhouse. Being placed in the back, a better weight distribution is realized. To conclude, all sorts of aerodynamic elements are stylishly incorporated to ensure the car stays firmly on the race track.
The Mustang GT3 is set to make an appearance in Le Mans during 2024, being handled by Proton Competition. If you’re looking for a version of the Mustang GT3 that can be driven on regular roads, then your option is the Mustang GTD which offers what could be the most powerful street-legal Mustang there is. This road variant features a 5.2-liter V8 force-fed with a supercharger pushing out an impressive 800 horsepower alongside its transaxle and remarkable aerodynamics to complete the package.
You will have to allot a hefty investment for the advantage though. The limited-edition Mustang GTD is predicted to cost more than $300,000 when it will be introduced on the market before the end of 2024.
