According to a recent report, Ford could unveil their new GT race car sometime next month.

Details are limited but Car & Driver is reporting the model will enter competition next year in the Le Mans GTE class.  As a result, it will square off with the Chevrolet Corvette C7.R, Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 and Porsche 911 RSR.

Little else is known about the race car but the magazine is reporting the road-going model's twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine will likely produce more than 700 bhp (522 kW).  If that number pans out it, the GT would be more powerful than a number high-performance supercars including the new Ferrari 488 GTB.
