From FPV press: Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) has today set a new benchmark in executive styling with the release of the all-new GT E, the pinnacle of the V8 powered GT range.

Powered by the upgraded 5.4-litre Boss V8 engine, the GT E produces a massive 315kW of power at 6500 rpm and 551Nm of torque at 4750 rpm.

The new GT E features the ZF six-speed high-torque automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift as standard and boasts a fuel economy figure of 14L/100km.

The GT E receives performance 355 x 32mm cross-drilled and ventilated front rotors with Brembo 6-piston calipers and 330 x 28mm cross-drilled and ventilated rear rotors with Brembo 4-piston caliper as standard.

“The Premium Brake Package delivers FPV a competitive advantage over our direct competitor as they do not offer 6-piston brakes across their range,” 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 Boss 315 engine gives the GT E flexibility through the gears, and consequently drivers will notice that from a standing start the vehicle feels lighter and more responsive, and picks up better at a lower rev-range.

The FPV performance independent double wish bone front suspension and performance control independent rear suspension teamed up with the new Sachs mono-shock damper provides the perfect balance between a firm, dynamic sports performance feel and maintaining the ride comfort while cruising.
