Ford is expanding the Mustang brand with the formal debut of the Mustang GT4.
Based on the all-new 2024 Mustang Dark Horse, the new GT4 officially continues Ford’s uninterrupted tenure in the SRO-sanctioned GT4 category, first entered in 2017. And like the Mustang GT3, it receives a livery adapted from Troy Lee Designs’ liveries for the Mustang GT3 and SuperVan 4.2, Ford said.
“The Mustang GT4 is a key member of our motorsports lineup. It’s placement between the Mustang GT3 and soon-to-be-unveiled Mustang Dark Horse R keeps the brand in competition at all levels of on-track performance and is an important part of our customer racing program,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director of Ford Performance Motorsports. “With this new version, based off the seventh generation’s new Dark Horse model, we’ve upped the game and are ready to challenge an entire world of competitors.”
With the new Mustang GT4, Ford Performance further expands its partnership with Multimatic, who will build every Mustang GT4. The Ford Coyote-based V8 race engines in the Mustang GT4, developed fully in-house by Ford Performance, will be assembled by Ford in Dearborn, Michigan.
The Mustang GT4 race car also features Multimatic DSSV dampers, a Holinger dog-ring gearbox, paddle shifters with pneumatic actuation, natural fiber body panels, as well as a unique aero package developed to meet GT4 category targets, Ford Performance engineers said.
