â€œAs opposed to the overtly sporty GT, the GT E is more subtle, with striking chrome accents and a refined lip spoiler replacing the bright colours, hood and side striping and large rear wings found on the other models."
Australian Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) revealed today their range topping all-new GT E Falcon, a visually toned down version of the GT with the same performance figures. The FPV GT E is powered by the upgraded 5.4 liter Boss V8 engine and is good for 315 kW of power (422 hp) and 551 Nm of torque, just like its racy and flashy GT stable mate.
Coupled to all this power is a ZF six-speed high-torque automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift and manages a respectable 14 liters of petrol per 100 km. FPV installed a Brembo performance brake system with 355 x 32 mm cross-drilled and ventilated front rotors with six-piston calipers and 330 x 28 mm rotors with 4-piston calipers in the rear.
Ford Performance Vehicles General Manager Rod Barrett said, “The GT E is a combination of luxury V8 and executive racer. It’s for those who want the power and sound of a high-performance vehicle without the overt styling and bright colors.”
The GT E replaces the bright colors, stripes and large rear wing with chrome accents, boot lip spoiler, black chrome around the grille mesh, unique 19 inch Alpine silver alloy wheels, shadow or red leather sport seats and dark walnut woodgrain finish. The new Ford FPV GT E Falcon will go on sale in Australia this June for about AUD 76,990.
