It seems like it's going be a busy week for Ford.

That's because it not only debuted the all-new Edge last night, it always will be revealing the newly revamped 2015 Focus ST at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (FOS).

To us it seems like pretty smart idea. That's because while there will be plenty of high-end exotica running the hill climb, we're sure plenty of aspirational buyers — and gearheads looking for a daily driver — will be more than happy to give the Focus ST a look.

Although our friends at the Blue Oval were kind enough to provide a teaser image and clip — see below — it hasn't uttered a word about what changes to expect. So, you're going to have to hang tight until Friday when the vehicle is scheduled to have its details drop.

So, until then scope out the video and let us know what changes YOU think are in store for 2015.

Ford's press release follows:

New Ford Focus ST Global Reveal at Goodwood Festival of Speed; New Mustang Also Debuts on Famous Hill Climb

• Ford premieres new Focus ST at Goodwood Festival of Speed in United Kingdom, June 27

• New Focus ST makes debut on world-famous hill climb; Ford and Sony Computer Entertainment stage first "virtual versus real" race at Goodwood – with Gran Turismo®6 gamers going head-to-head with actual drivers of Focus ST

GOODWOOD, U.K. – The new Ford Focus ST will make its global debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed in the United Kingdom, June 27. Ford's new performance model headlines the First Glance category, with professional drivers showcasing the car's abilities on the world-famous hill climb on all three days of the event.

Benefiting from technology and quality improvements revealed earlier this year for the new Ford Focus, Focus ST will be displayed on the Ford stand at Goodwood. First launched in 2002, Focus ST has now seen sales of more than 140,000 units in more than 40 countries.

Ford also is teaming up with Sony Computer Entertainment to stage the first-ever "virtual versus real" race on the hill. On its first run each day, the new Focus ST will compete in real time against the Focus ST featured in the Gran Turismo®6 game for PlayStation®3.

A designated gamer at the Ford stand will match skills against Ben Collins – formerly The Stig of Top Gear – with the action displayed on big screens throughout the festival. Visitors to the Ford stand also have the chance to record their own times on the Gran Turismo 6 simulators.

Also starring at Goodwood will be the all-new Ford Mustang that makes its first U.K. appearance. A 5.0-liter V8 fastback will take part in the Supercar Class, with Ford Team RS vehicle dynamics specialist David Put at the wheel. Ford also will display a Mustang convertible.
