It should come as no surprise that the automakers would test their forthcoming vehicles ahead of the official reveal announcement. But when a vehicle is being readied for the challenge of the racing world, it is normal to announce that it is happening, and then submit the vehicle for testing and modification. Ford took an alternative approach with the Ford GT. Subjecting it to rigorous testing in total secret, prior to announcing that the new Ford GT would be entering the 24 Hours of Le Mans competition.

Take a look at the following video, which shows us a behind the scenes glimpse of this shakedown test. The interviews certainly allude to great success on the track, though many of us will have to wait until the 2016 Le Mans competition to witness the strengths of the Ford GT on the racetrack. Check it out below.

The Ford GT is the crown jewel of the Ford Performance Lineup, which also features the F-150 Raptor and Focus RS.
