The racer will be officially unveiled next month.
Ford Performance has released a new teaser with a large and prominent rear wing shrouded in tire smoke. What could it be?
There's not much to work with, but it's certainly enough to whet our appetites. One theory is that it could be a preview of the Mustang GT3, set to be revealed at the Super Sebring IMSA/WEC event in March this year. Look closely, and you'll see prominent struts propping the wing up. The vehicle pictured below has a larger wing than the Mustang GT4, leading us to believe it's the GT3 variant.
If you're into all things Ford motorsport, this teaser may be a touch confusing. After all, didn't the automaker reveal the GT3 racer at the launch of the S650 road car? Yes, but then again, this surprising debut came with no additional information.
Multimatic, the company tasked with building the Mustang GT3 and GT4 race cars, hinted last year at the Mustang's return to the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans race. "I am proud that Multimatic has been chosen to help execute a part of that vision with the development of the GT3 and GT4 cars. What Ford really wants is to be back at Le Mans, this time with Mustang," said the company's Larry Holt.
We know that the Mustang GT3 will make an incredible noise. Ahead of the reveal of the seventh-generation Mustang, Ford teased the raw and visceral V8 growl of the upcoming racer, and it sounds superb.
The teaser is most likely for the GT3 - but there's another possibility behind the smoky image. Something as innocent as hiding an all-new livery, or it could be another car entirely.
As we know, Ford is committed to introducing more electric vehicles. The Mustang Mach-E remains popular thanks to attractive pricing, good performance, and the crossover body style. To drum up excitement around the nameplate - and demonstrate the power of electric mobility - the automaker revealed the incredible Mach-E 1400.
With a staggering 1,400 horsepower and seven electric motors, it's a phenomenally quick EV. Look closely at the rear wing; you'll notice it resembles the teaser image shared by Ford Performance. The company may be looking to introduce an updated version with superior aero and more power.
We could see an all-electric Mustang S650 concept car in the coming weeks. Hopefully, we'll get a better answer in the coming weeks.
