FPV BF MkII GT (2006)


FPV BF MkII GT

Ford Performance Vehicles has increased the visual presence of its vehicles with the new BF model range, introducing a bold new styling theme that provides greater distinction between Boss 290 V8-powered and F6 270 Turbo-powered vehicles.

New-look front bumpers on all models feature an aggressive race-inspired lip surrounding the larger lower air intake, which is replicated in a similar fashion surrounding a new-look opening in the rear bumpers of all sedans. This is combined with stylish new-design auxiliary driving lights.

The unique styling theme provides FPV with greater exclusivity as well as the flexibility to customise the design for individual models.

To complement the new styling, all Boss 290-powered vehicles receive 19-inch alloy wheels as standard fitment, including a new design on the range-topping GT-P and Super Pursuit models, while the GT and GT-P are also fitted with a traditional muscle car-inspired twin exhaust system. All Boss 290-powered models also feature a broader selection of new-design optional side stripe and hood decal packages.

"Our customers loved the race-inspired styling of the BA GT and the technical detail we applied to give the F6 Typhoon and F6 Tornado a unique look," said David Flint, Managing Director of Ford Performance Vehicles.

"With the new BF models, we have taken the opportunity to give our vehicles even greater road presence and, at the same time, create distinct visual differences between our Boss 290 V8 models and F6 variants."

FPV Cobra Ute

The iconic Cobra name has returned to Australian motoring, with Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) unveiling its new special edition FPV GT Cobra and FPV Cobra Ute.

FPV's new Cobra range was revealed during a parade lap of Mount Panorama prior to the start of the 2007 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.

Thirty years ago the Ford Falcon XC Hardtop staged the now famous 1-2 victory formation at the 1977 Bathurst 1000 race, which led to the release of the limited edition Cobra XC Hardtop the following year.

"The Cobra name invokes passion among motoring enthusiasts, and now 30 years after the famous 1-2 win at Bathurst, the new FPV GT Cobra offers the exclusivity of Cobra ownership to a new generation of car owners," said FPV General Manager Rod Barrett.

"The new FPV GT Cobra combines the original XC Cobra's bold styling with the latest in FPV engineering and total performance.

"While the vehicle's exterior features the same blue racing stripes and coiled snake emblem that Cobra is famous for, the vehicle will be powered by FPV's latest high performance Boss 5.4-litre quad-cam 32 valve V8 engine, which now produces 302kW."

The new Boss 302 engine powering both the sedan and Ute variants produces 302 kW of power and 540 Nm of torque, and is equipped with FPV stainless steel fabricated exhaust manifolds and a high-flow dual exhaust system.

For motoring buffs, 302 was the capacity in cubic inches of Ford's small-block V8 engine and is also exactly double the 151 kW output of the 1978 Cobra's 4.9-litre V8 engine.

FPV GT 40th Anniversary

Ford Performance Vehicles has unveiled a new limited edition model at the Melbourne International Motor Show today, celebrating the long history of the GT nameplate in Australia.

The FPV GT 40th Anniversary commemorates 40 years of the Falcon GT legend, which stretches back to 1967 with the original XR Falcon GT.

Only 200 FPV GT 40th Anniversary models will be built, each with a unique build number badge and certificate of authenticity.

All vehicles will be finished in Silhouette black with a striking gold over-body stripe kit, reminiscent of the classic GT stripe kit last seen on a locally produced Ford model with the XC Falcon Cobra Hardtop in 1978.

Gold GT lower body stripes with a '40th Anniversary' decal, accent colour treatment on the side skirt flutes and rear spoiler pillars, and special GT-P 19-inch alloy wheels with gloss black accents complete the standout exterior package.

The interior of the anniversary model is equally distinctive, with FPV sports seats finished in a combination of leather and suede, featuring silver thread highlights and an embroidered 'GT' logo.

FPV floor mats with '40th Anniversary' logo inlay match the exterior touches, while an iPod®/MP3 audio player connection, which integrates with the FPV audio system, is fitted as standard.

In addition to the unique 40th Anniversary features that transform the GT visually, FPV has also designed a new suspension package to take the handling prowess of its latest model to new heights.
