Mystery Ford GT model teased ahead of Goodwood Festival of Speed reveal

The teaser image shows a GT with a huge new rear wing.

Ford is to make a ‘special announcement’ about its Ford GT at next month’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The American manufacturer is keeping tight-lipped on what the news on its powerful supercar will be, with some predicting that the teased model could be a race-spec version, which looks similar to Ford’s own GTE-Pro racing car.

What we do know from the teaser image is that the mystery GT is set to feature a much larger rear wing than the existing road car.

The GT is Ford’s ‘halo’ model, and harks back to the GT40 from the 1960s. Powered by a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine tuned to produce 647bhp, it is capable of a 217mph top speed. But lightness and aero is the key here, which gives it the performance edge over many of its competitors.

Elsewhere at the West Sussex motoring event, which takes place between July 4 and 7, Ford is showing off its new Focus ST for the first time in the UK, while the 760bhp Mustang Shelby GT500 is also making an appearance.

Other Ford highlights at the Festival of Speed include some of the firm’s latest GT race cars, as well as the Fiesta M-Sport WRC rally car and drifting Mustangs.

The brand’s Ranger Raptor pick-up will also be taking to the off-road course, and will be available for demonstrations.

The news will be delivered on July 4 at the Ford stand in the drift paddock at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
