Ford plots new GT announcement at Goodwood

Ford to unveil extreme version of GT racecar next month

Need proof? Ford is teasing the upcoming reveal of what looks to be a brand-new GT derivative at the UK's Goodwood Festival Of Speed on July 4. In fact, the aerofoil looks an terrible lot like the wing affixed to the rear of Ford's GT LM GTE race cars, albeit with larger endplates.

The Ford factory GT Le Mans program just wrapped this year with the 24 Hours of Le Mans the feather in its cap, but the Canadian manufacturer of the GT, Multimatic, tweeted "You thought you had seen it all?" Hermann Salenbauch, global director, Ford Performance, and Larry Holt, chief technical officer, Multimatic, will deliver the news about the forthcoming supercar. Second, and what makes clear this variant will improve the car's capability, is the massive rear wing that can be seen hovering above the rear end.

Though Ford earlier promised that the upcoming Mustang Shelby GT500 would be the most powerful vehicle on the market when it launches in 2020, the company did not reveal exactly what that statement entailed.

Juventus 'close in on signing of £62m Matthijs de Ligt'
With Pique, Lenglet, Umtiti and Todibo competing for spots at Barcelona , that is a luxury the Catalan club can not offer. De Ligt is currency on holiday in Miami - and the defender will make a decision on his future in the coming days.

The most powerful fast road Ford at FOS will surely be the 760bhp Mustang Shelby GT500 making its United Kingdom debut.

The hashtags give clues as to when we can expect to see the auto.

The 2018 NASCAR winning Team Penske Ford Fusion will be at the event along with a classic 1980 Ford Zakspeed Turbo Capri racing auto. Ford's M-sport Ford World Rally Team Fiesta WRC auto will take on the Goodwood rally stage. Other new road cars include the all-new Focus ST and, on the off-road course, the Raptor version of the Ranger 4x4 pickup.
