From FPV press: The new GT has arrived and has taken Australian performance motoring to a whole new level.

Powered by the new supercharged Boss 5.0 litre V8 engine, the GT produces 335kW of power at 5,750rpm and 570Nm of torque at 2,200-5,500rpm, making it without doubt, the best GT FPV has every created.

Matched to the performance is the Brembo braking package featuring 355 x 32mm cross-drilled and ventilated front rotors with Brembo 4-piston calipers and 328 x 26mm cross-drilled and ventilated rear rotors with single red piston caliper as standard. The GT also features the TR6060 6-speed manual with the technologically advanced ZF 6-speed automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift as no cost option.

And for the true V8 enthusiast, the GT (in addition to its GT E and GT-P siblings) has a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controlled active exhaust system to deliver: Maximum V8 sound quality at idle and during car maneuvering and; Maximum V8 muscle car sound quality during spirited driving.

From a safety aspect, the GT comes with driver and front passenger airbags, curtain airbags plus front seat side thorax airbags, dynamic stability control, traction control, electronic brakeforce distribution and electronic brake assist, 4-channel anti-lock braking system and reverse sensing system.

Completing the package is the GT’s bold exterior styling, including the striking new Boss 335 stripe package, black chrome front grille, large rear wing and 19” premium 5-spoke alloy wheels with machined face and Dark Argent accents.

The iconic GT delivers true V8 performance motoring unlike any other. It certainly lives up to its name, the Boss.
