2014 FPV GT F pays homage to the legendary Falcon GTs

Article by Christian A., on June 10, 2014

Ford Australia introduced its most powerful GT sedan ever, the FPV GT F, powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that generates 351 kW or 477 hp as well as 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque. What’s more interesting is that the V8 engine found on the GT F also features an overboost function in the engine management system that promises to deliver 15% more power is the prevailing conditions are available.

According to Ford, the new FPV GT F pays homage to the legendary Falcon GTs of the late 1960s and early 1970s, while the output was specifically chose as a reference to the iconic 351 cubic-inch 5.8-liter V8s found on the original Falcon GT models.

As a result, each model will carry an individual build number. Collectors and Falcon GT enthusiasts already reserved plenty of models and very few GT F sedans remains available. Just 500 FPV GT F sedans will be built for the Australian market, while an additional 50 will be built for New Zeeland.

Regarding the design, the FPV GT F models feature unique ‘black out’ bonnet, just like the original Falcon GTs, ‘stealth’ exterior striping package, gloss black accents on the ‘racoon eyes’, grilles, appliques, door handles, mirrors and rear air diffuser.

Furthermore, the ‘black out’ panel extends over the roof and rear deck lid. The newest FPV GT F comes with ‘GT Orange’ detailing on the model’s unique ‘351’ badging, instrument dial face, seat stitching, build number, manual transmission plaque and the ICC start-up screen.

Ford will offer the FPV GT F in five colours variants. Moreover, there is a tailored car cover in dark grey available with model logo and stripe print. Pricing starts at 77,990 AUD. [source: Ford Performance Vehicles]
