Ford teased an image of a new GT supercar trim on June 21, revealing scant details save for the model's release, to take place at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the U.K. on the Fourth of July.
From what we can see in the teaser photo, though, this 'special Ford GT' will have, at minimum, a massive Le Mans-style rear wing and a roof scoop, suggesting the new car will wear some Le Mans-inspired kit.
Functioning headlights seem to confirm the thing will be street-legal, though—talked about mixed messages. Our best bet may be a race-trim track-special.
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? We've only just started…'

That seems to suggest the car may also be another racing variant for some series outside of the World Endurance Championship. Multimatic's CTO Larry Holt will be making the July 4 announcement alongside director of Ford Performance Hermann Salenbauch.
When the covers get pulled, we'll have the full details for you.
