    Ford Performance Vehicles Reveals New Model Range

    Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) today publicly unveiled its new performance GT and F6 sedans at the Melbourne International Motor Show.

    "This is the first chance for the public to get a close-up look at some of our new models, ahead of their release in June," said Ford Performance Vehicles General Manager Rod Barrett.

    "Our new model range offers performance enthusiasts the ultimate in performance engineering, luxury appointments and sports styling."

    For the first time, the Ford badge will not appear externally on an FPV model. The GT and F6 sedans on display both feature FPV badges prominently on the centre grille and centre boot lid, which is consistent with the entire new range.

    "Featuring the FPV badge on all our new models is a major repositioning for the FPV brand," said Barrett.

    "It signifies the maturing of our brand and the evolution of FPV as Ford's performance partner."

    As with Ford, FPV has repositioned its high performance sedan and Ute model variants, with eight stunning vehicles divided into the GT series and F6 series families.

    "The repositioning of the vehicle line-up has been done for similar reasons to the Ford G Series," said Barrett.

    "It is all about growing the brand and attracting new customers. The GT series family continues our strong iconic heritage, while the F6 series family caters to a new segment of performance car enthusiasts who prefer a slick turbo charged six-cylinder to a thundering V8."

    The GT series family retains the familiar GT and GT-P sedan nameplates, and introduces the stylish new luxury GT-E sedan.

    The bold exterior styling of the new GT and GT-P is highlighted by the trademark unique front grille treatment, rear wing, side striping and V8 bonnet bulge accented with a newly designed hood decal.

    Visually, the new GT-E is distinguished from its V8 siblings by its refined rear lip spoiler, chrome accenting and distinctive GT-E badging.

    The GT-E's unique 19-inch alloy wheels are matched by a premium brake package, with six-piston Brembo brakes now featured as standard.

    "The GT-E is a sophisticated luxury performance car that will cater for those buyers that don't want the stripes, wings, and seats offered in the GT-P, however, want to retain all the performance attributes of that car," said Barrett.

    The Super Pursuit and Pursuit Ute variants complete the GT series range.

    The F6 series family features the F6 and F6 Ute, the Typhoon and Tornado nomenclature are discontinued on the new vehicles.

    Significant ride, handling and safety advancements have been made to the new FPV stable. Each new model variant has been fully engineered and designed to provide the performance enthusiast with the ultimate in Australian performance motoring.

    Safety advances include the addition of Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) on FPV sedan & Ute vehicles for the first time.

    Significantly, FPV customers will also have a choice of manual or automatic transmissions at no additional cost in the sedan range.

    "The option of automatic or manual transmissions in the sedan range at no extra cost caters for both our luxury and overt sports customers, without penalising either for their choice of transmission," said Barrett.

    FPV has produced exhilarating performance upgrades across the GT and F6 range, however, the exact engine performance power and torque figures will be revealed closer to the on sale date in June.

    "The unique FPV enhanced design gives each vehicle a bolder road presence," said Barrett.

    "Coupled with performance upgrades, the new FPV range is a revolution in Australian performance motoring. I'm sure our loyal and passionate customers will be extremely impressed."

    I would just like to say: fuck ford. Anonymously styled, underpowered, over-advertised, half-baked, yawn-inducing shit. My washer and dryer have more personality.

    We're to cheap to spend money on something decent; we'd rather just get the cheapest piece of shit car that gets us from A to B even if it means massive amounts of corner cutting.

    Exactly, and big stupid trucks. Even the Japanese cars we get reek of cheapness compared to what they sell everywhere else.
