FPV goes out with a 5.0-litre V8 351 kilowatt bang
THE FINAL FPV GT sedan will be powered by a 351 kilowatt supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine.
Developed to pay homage to the 351-cubic-inch-5.8-litre V8 Falcon GTs of the early 1970s, which made the model so iconic on the race tracks and streets of Australia, the limited-edition FPV GT F sedan will also be the most powerful Falcon GT ever produced by Ford's Broadmeadows plant.
The FPV will go on sale next month from $77,990.
To produce this landmark sedan, FPV's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine has had its engine and transmission electronic control systems recalibrated, to produce a benchmark-setting 351kW of power at 6000rpm.
That's up 16kW from the most powerful previous model FPVs, including the most recent limited-edition GT RSPEC in 2012.
The GT F sedan will also sport iconic GT F 351 badging with inset orange colouring on the "GT" script of the badge, harking back to Ford's heroic race-bred GTs.
Wide nine-inch rear wheels with 275/35 R19 Dunlop Sports Maxx tyres provide cornering grip, while an automatically enabled launch control feature will tailor torque delivery to ensure launch performance is optimised and drive quality uncompromised on typical road surfaces.
Brembo six-piston front and four-piston rear brakes will be standard.The GT F 351 will have a stripe design package and will be available in five colours, white, blue, black, orange and dark grey.
For FPV ute buyers, a limited-edition new look Pursuit Ute will be powered by the impressive all-aluminium supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine, which produces 315kW of power at 5750rpm and 545Nm of torque at 2000-5500rpm.
Featuring the design cues of the GT F including the unique stripe package, the $52,990 Pursuit Ute will be limited to 120 units.
The Pursuit Ute will feature a GT front bar, F6 side-skirts and GT wheels and will be available in the same colour palette and stripe package options as the GT F.
