Ford has released a new video of the GT race car being tested before its official unveiling at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Set to enter competition next year, the GT will compete in the LM GTE-Pro class and celebrate its racing debut at the 24 Hours of Daytona in January.

Ford has been tight-lipped about specifications but the race car is based on the road-going model and features a number of aerodynamic styling tweaks including a front splitter, a larger diffuser and a prominent rear wing.  The car will also have a twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that has been specially designed for racing applications.
