â€œThe new GT range has been fully engineered and designed to incorporate the latest in performance engineering, as well as significant ride and handling advancements,â€
Together with the FPV GT E, Ford Performance Vehicles also released the GT and GT-P (P for Premium) models and their official specs. The new 5.4 liter Boss V8 engine produces a whopping 315 kW / 422 hp with 551 Nm of torque and can be combined with a TR6060 six-speed manual transmission or ZF six-speed high-torque automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift.
The new FPV GT range comes with a performance double wishbone front suspension and performance Control Blade Independent Rear Suspension (IRS), 355 x 22 mm front brake rotors with 4-piston calipers and 328 x 26 mm rear rotors with single red piston caliper, high-flow “straight through” twin exhaust system and new spring and damper settings.
The FPV GTP and GT are instantly recognizable with their bulging hood with strikign decal, front grille, side striping and large rear wing. “We wanted to make a statement and distinguish ourselves from the mainstream look and we’ve done that,” said Barrett. “When one of these cars is coming towards you, you instantly know it’s an FPV.”
Both the Ford FPV GT and GT-P will go on sale this June for AUD 65,990 and AUD 75,990 respectively.
