Prokop’s rendering prompts a tantalizing question: If this version of the Ford Mustang became a reality, could it compete with the meticulously engineered 495-hp C8 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51?

The $325k Ford Mustang GTD is making waves as it gears up for its official European premiere at the 92nd edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 15 and 16. This high-performance vehicle has been the subject of much anticipation, though Ford remains some distance away from initiating the first deliveries in North America or Europe. For now, eager enthusiasts can only reserve this extreme muscle car.

The 2025 Ford Mustang GTD is stirring strong emotions across the automotive community. On one hand, Ford is receiving praise for transforming the Le Mans-ready Mustang GT3 into a street-legal supercar.

This vehicle is seen as a more sophisticated alternative to the now-discontinued 650-hp Chevy Camaro ZL1 and better suited for international racetracks than the drag-focused Hellcat. Ford’s introduction of the GTD Carbon Series, complete with a new Performance pack for the European market, further enhances its appeal.

However, some fans expressed disappointment with the car's interior, which, despite some upgrades like exposed carbon fiber trim, remains largely similar to the EcoBoost, GT, or Dark Horse models. Critics also lament that Ford did not produce a mid-engine S650 Mustang to compete directly with the C8 Chevy Corvette Stingray, Z06, and E-Ray.

In the realm of digital artistry, Czech Republic-based virtual artist Rostislav Prokop, known as rostislav_prokop on social media, continues to explore these unfulfilled dreams.

Prokop's latest work revisits the concept of a mid-engine Mustang, a notion that has tantalized fans but never materialized. His design reimagines a Ford Mustang GT with a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine repositioned under the rear glass. This silver and black-trimmed creation features extensive aerodynamic enhancements, presenting a more aggressive widebody stance than the C8 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

Only time will tell if Ford will ever bring such a vision to life, but for now, the 2025 Ford Mustang GTD stands as a bold testament to the company’s innovation and commitment to pushing the boundaries of performance and design.

What are your thoughts? Could this Ford Mustang stand up to the Corvette in the real world?
