Ford Performance Vehicles has unveiled its bold new range of high-performance vehicles at the 2005 Australian International Motor Show. For the first time since FPV was launched in September 2002, the BF range will consist of a full product lineup of six high-performance models: GT, GT-P, Pursuit, Super Pursuit, F6 Typhoon and F6 Tornado. The addition of the ZF six-speed automatic transmission has allowed FPV to increase its product portfolio with, for the first time, an automatic gearbox available as an option on the turbo-charged F6 Typhoon and F6 Tornado.

Never has an Australian-built production car range contained so many technologically-advanced performance driving features. The new ZF six-speed automatic transmission or the close-ratio Tremec T56 six-speed manual, the Boss 290 quad cam V8 or the F6 270 Turbo with its twin-plate clutch, the award-winning Control Blade independent rear suspension system, Brembo brakes and the outstanding Falcon chassis, all combine to offer the very best range of vehicles yet from FPV.

Complementing these mechanical features, the BF FPV range introduces an aggressive new styling theme with greater visual distinction between Boss 290 V8-powered and F6 270 Turbo-powered models, and more options for customers to personalize their vehicle.

The BOSS 290 Engine

The high-tech quad cam Boss 290 – the only V8 production engine to be built in Australia – has a number of upgraded features that coincide with the introduction of the new BF range.

In conjunction with compliance with the Euro III emission regulations, another new design standard will be introduced from 2006: a reduction in drive-by noise (ADR 83/00) from 77dB to 75dB. To achieve this, the 5.4-liter quad cam Boss 290 V8 is now fitted with the dual-entry ram airbox and a bold new twin-exhaust system exclusively available on the GT and GT-P.

The new twin exhaust system not only lifts the aesthetic presence of the iconic V8-powered models, but also generates a traditional muscle car-inspired exhaust note. The system has four-into-one extractors from each bank of cylinders joining into a twin 2 ¼-inch exhaust with an intermediate silencer box. The exhaust gases pass through new tri-flow silencers before exiting via the six-inch twin-outlets that feature a trapezoidal design reminiscent of iconic muscle cars of the 1970s.

Despite the restrictions imposed by the Euro III regulations, Prodrive’s powertrain engineering team has maintained the power and torque outputs of the 5.4-liter quad cam Boss 290 V8. It produces maximum power of 394 bhp at 5,500rpm and 384 lb-ft of torque at 4,500rpm.

The Boss 290 is now up to 2.6 per cent more fuel efficient, with the GT and GT-P manual sedans recording 14.9 liters/100km/h under official ADR requirements for combined city/urban driving cycle. The lower gearing of the six-speed automatic records 15.0 liters/100km in GT and GT-P and 15.1 in Pursuit.

Exterior Styling

The new-look front bumpers further enhance the traditional performance car styling of the Boss 290 V8-powered vehicles with a larger and more pronounced lower air intake featuring the race-inspired three-slot spoiler.

Enhancing the more aggressive styling, all FPV Boss 290 V8-powered models are now fitted with 19-inch alloy wheels as standard equipment. The wheels have been designed to accentuate the power and presence of the Brembo brakes that are now standard on all FPV models.

FPV owners will be offered even more ways to customize their vehicle, with a new-design side stripe and hood decal package available as an option on GT, GT-P, Pursuit and Super Pursuit.

Interior Upgrades

The feature-filled cabin in all FPV models has received a number of improvements with the introduction of the new BF range.

Complementing the satin alloy interior features such as the Interior Command Centre and gear lever surrounds, the door trims now carry the same premium highlight on the grab handles with a soft-feel material. The performance seats in all models now feature Satin Alloy contrast stitching with the FPV logo embroidered in the headrests.

Brakes

Ford Performance Vehicles has improved the braking packages on its entire vehicle lineup with the introduction of the new BF model.

The flagship FPV GT-P features ultra-high-performance Brembo six-piston front calipers and a four-piston rear caliper. These calipers provide improved stopping power, better resistance to brake fade and improved pedal feel and effort. The monoblock construction is significantly stiffer than conventional two-piece calipers, generating better braking response and improving long-term durability and performance.

The cross-drilled and pillar-ventilated rotors measure 355 mm x 32 mm at the front and 330 mm x 28 mm at the rear. The unique pillar venting provides greater heat extraction from the inner portion of the rotor for better braking performance during enthusiastic driving.

The flagship GT-P and Super Pursuit models step up a notch with ultra-high-performance Brembo six-piston front calipers.

Re: I am moving to Australia ! !

I'd rather have the ford GT90 that you guy's have in the states.

Engine - hybrid V - 12
Output Power - 720 hp@6600rpm Transmission - 5 speed manual Price - approx. $800 000
0 - 60 mph - 3.1 seconds
0 - 100mph - 6.2 seconds
Top speed - 235+ mph
























The GT90 would not only have given the McLaren F1 a hard time, but blow away the Ferrari F50, Lamborghini Diablo, and Bugatti EB 110. Now that performance!!!

Interesting Fact: The GT90's engine is two twin-turbo inline 6 engines fused together to form a hybrid V-12.


The four turbos in the GT90 heat the engine so much, it reaches temperatures of 1500 degrees F. The GT90 uses ceramic tile insulation, similar to what is used in the space shuttle, in the engine bay to keep the body from melting. The GT90 has a speed sensitive spoiler, and infrared sensors that can detect objects on either side of the car. Now that's advanced automotive technology.




Ford GT - 90:
Technology, looks, and performance way ahead of it's time.
the GT90 was a concept way back in the early 90's



The GT90 itself was only a concept at most, but it's ancestor, the GT40, it one of the most well known classic race cars.

Re: I am moving to Australia ! !

Gt90 I have seen this car on tv a few times I don't think it lived up to the the expectations that ford had for it .I also haved driven it on playstation if this counts
The falcon looks great but I hope it also lives up to expectations as the model before it seems to have diff problems
