Ford Australia will shut down manufacturing facilities in Australia by October 2016 and before that they have unveiled the FPV GT F powered by a 477 hp supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine, making it the most powerful GT sedan ever produced by Ford Australia.
The updated engine of the GT F went undergone specialised development by the Ford Product Development team and partner Prodrive Premcar to meet customer expectations of both performance and driveability.
The 477 horsepower V8 engine in the GT F sedan has a transient overboost function in the engine management system that will enable drivers to access 15 per cent more power, if the prevailing conditions are favourable.
Developed to celebrate Ford’s performance brand FPV, the new FPV GT F also pays homage to the legendary Falcon GTs of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Just 500 of the FPV GT F sedans will be built for the Australian market, with an additional 50 built for New Zealand with a total production run of 550 units. Most as we know have already sold with prices starting at 77,990 AUD.
