Ford will officially unveil a new version of the modern-day GT supercar at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The model will be presented on July 4, during the company’s press conference scheduled for 09:45 BST (4:45 am EST) and a teaser has just been released.
The dark image depicts the outline of a GT that sports a giant rear wing and a roof scoop – which might be a one-off just for the event, a new racing variant, or a limited-run road car. However, there’s no official confirmation yet, so this is pure speculation.
The only thing the Blue Oval said about it was that they “will make a special Ford GT supercar announcement during a dedicated press conference”. Delivering the news and uncovering it will be Ford Performance Global Director Hermann Salenbauch and Multimatic CTO Larry Holt.
For this year’s Goodwood Festival of speed, Ford has prepped a lot surprises, including the local debuts of the new Focus ST, as well as the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, which uses a 760 hp and 625 lb-ft (847 Nm) of torque, 5.2-liter, supercharged V8. Both cars will go on the hill climb, alongside the GT Le Mans and NASCAR Fusion racers.
Making an appearance on Goodwood’s stage will be the Fiesta WRC, Ken Block’s Hoonitruck and Escort RS Cosworth, Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s Mustang RTR drift car and a 1980 Zakspeed Turbo Capri racer.
Last, but definitely not least, the Ranger Raptor will demonstrate its off-road capabilities during the event that takes place on Lord March’s domain, in West Sussex, England, from July 4 to 7.
