    Introducing the Force 8


    The Force 8 moves you with a 32 valve quad cam Boss V8, an engine comparable to Europe's best. The awe-inspiring Boss 290 is a powerplant unlike any ever built in this country and comes to life on Australia's only current V8 engine production line.

    The Boss 290 was developed right here in Australia by Ford Performance Vehicles for our unique requirements and to meet the rising demands of a new breed of Aussie V8 drivers.

    Its 5.4-litre capacity, 32 valves and double overhead camshafts per bank work in concert to produce 290 kilowatts of power and a phenomenal 520 Newton metres of torque. So not only is there free-revving top-end power but a wall of torque at low speeds as well. In combination with the tuned stainless steel exhaust system, it produces the trademark rumble that lets you know you're driving a real, blue-blooded Aussie V8. It has a quality that clearly communicates who exactly owns the road.


    The Force 6

    The Force 6 is powered by the same engine as the F6 Typhoon - a turbo charged 24 valve six with an amazing 550 Nm of torque.

    The F6 270 Turbo. A 4-litre turbo-charged, intercooled, 24-valve double overhead cam six. The highest torque output of any production six ever built in Australia and one of the most powerful in the world. Through partnership with Prodrive and their mastery of turbo technology across F1 and World Rally, the development of our high performance turbo-charged FPV has changed performance cars forever. We created an engine with dramatically improved cooling and induction. The 50% larger (than XR6 Turbo) air-to-air intercooler and dual Ram Air system significantly reduces intake pressure into the turbo's compressor - allowing it to work more efficiently... and effectively.

    The result. A fully engineered performance-driven power generator. Armed with double overhead camshafts and 4-valve aluminum cylinder heads, the F6 270 Turbo produces its maximum power of 270kW at 5250 rpm. However, the real story is torque. All 550Nm is on tap from just 2000 rpm and remaining constant all the way through to 4250 rpm.

    At time of launch, the highest torque output of any production engine ever built in Australia. Even more staggering is the engine's ability to produce 80% of its maximum torque at 1500 rpm and over 98% at 1750 rpm. Total Performance meets the turbo.

    Brakes


    The power to stop you is provided by Performance Brembo 4 piston front brake calipers and single piston rear calipers. Cooling is enhanced with cross drilled brake rotors as standard. A Premium Brembo 6 piston front and 4 piston rear brake package is available as an option.

    Performance Brakes

    Up front, huge 355mm x 32mm cross drilled and slotted front rotors with Brembo 4 piston calipers and 328mm x 26mm cross drilled rear rotors with red single piston calipers and are standard on Force 6 and Force 8.

    Premium Brakes

    For the ultimate in stopping power choose the FPV Premium brake package, which consists of 355mm x 32mm cross drilled and slotted front rotors with Brembo 6 piston calipers and 330mm x 28mm cross cross drilled rear rotors with Brembo 4 piston calipers. Optional Force 6 and Force 8.

    Brembo brakes are amongst the best brake packages in the world and are another example of FPV's commitment to Total Performance

    FPV BF MkII GT


    The BF MkII GT more than lives up to the famous badge. It is the muscle car for the 21st century. With 290kWs of Boss quad cam V8 power and the choice of 6-speed manual gearbox or the no cost optional ZF 6 speed high torque automatic. The GT is second-to-none for outright handling and driver comfort in a 5 passenger Australian built performance sedan.

    Like the GT legends of the past, its styling is impossible to ignore, incorporating the GT badge into the upper grille. The new retro-cool FPV side stripes and Boss 290 hood decal are options and a FPV dual exhaust system, Brembo front brakes and 19" alloy wheels are standard.

    FPV BF MkII GT-P


    You want more? The FPV GT-P has everything the GT has — and more. Same big Boss engine. Same exhilarating performance. Then you start to appreciate the differences. New GT-P 5-spoke 19" alloy wheels with machined face, 355mm × 32mm cross drilled 6 piston front and 330mm × 28mm cross drilled 4 piston rear Brembo brakes and rear parking sensors are standard. FPV stripes and hool decal are a no-cost option. Choose between the close ratio 6-speed manual gearbox or the no cost optional ZF 6-speed automatic. Aggressive front and rear styling features satin-alloy upper and lower grille mesh, bright finish side skirt flutes and FPV dual exhaust. It's hard to believe any car could look more purposeful than the GT-P. This does.

    because it wouldn't help their sales substantially, only enthusiasts would go for these cars. Also i doubt they'd make much money off each one sold, which is what they want (their profit margin on each pickup/SUV sold is huge).

    yeh wont get much loving from me on this one nitrane, nice car dont get me wrong.. but the minor changes from the bf fpv range is not even worth the name of a "force 6/8"

    Clearly a more slick look and fell, but nothing on the clubsport vs senator appearance change.
