The factory Ford GT racing programme may have drawn to a close, but it seems the Blue Oval isn’t done with the road-going version of the supercar just yet.

The company has revealed a darkened teaser image, promising to make “a special Ford GT supercar announcement” during a Goodwood Festival of Speed press conference at 0945 on 4 July.

No further details are given, but judging by the big wing on the back of the GT depicted in the image, we can take an educated guess or two.

It’ll almost certainly be an even more focused version of the already hardcore GT road car. If Ford has gone particularly extreme with this latest version of the supercar, it might even be a track-only affair.

Expect a stiffer setup for the MultiMatic DSSV shocks, a bump in power for the 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6, and a sizeable increase in downforce thanks to that rear wing, which will no doubt be joined by other aero additions.

Production numbers will inevitably be extremely limited - Ford has capped the standard GT at only 1350 units.
