In June 2016 Ford will return to the Le Mans 24-hour with its all-new GT supercar, aiming to recapture some of the glory it experienced in the late 1960s when the original GT40 notched up four consecutive Le Mans wins.

And in a neat coincidence (or not), next year marks the 50th anniversary of Ford’s 1966 victory at the famous French circuit. In fact, a 1-2-3 GT finish saw Ford drivers crowd the podium that year.

Its anyone's guess whether Ford's newest mid-engined supercar will replicate the success of its oldest one, but the race version of the 2016 Ford GT appears to have the right stuff.

Bar a low-hanging front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and rear wing, the road-going GT and its race-ready sister share much of their bodywork.

And that's not much of a surprise. Designed from the outset to accommodate the various aerodynamic and cooling requirments of an endurance racer, the 2016 Ford GT's form is very much dictated by its function.

Like those slim buttresses that join the turret to the top of the rear wheel wells - not only are they a neat design feature, they also carry the piping that takes air from the side-mounted intercoolers to the engine's inlet manifold.

In this latest video, Ford details how much of the GT's development was not only driven by aerodynamics, but the company's desire to make a triumphant return to Le Mans. Enjoy.
