Tornado is Here!

I dont know if this is a repost, but I just found it, I thought it was a rumour!!

http://www.fpv.com.au/index.asp?link_id=2.532

I like this quote the best, sounds unbeleivable

"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."

Re: Tornado is Here!

It has been mentioned in the FPV section I think. Same specs as the Typhoon by the looks of it.

I also noticed some colours I hadn't seen before in the Colourator...namely Velocity and Blaze.

Price

The F6 Tornado will become the entry ticket to the FPV family with a recommended retail price of $51,950 - excluding dealer delivery and statutory charges.

Re: Tornado is Here!

With that kind of a torque spread it could well be australias new drift king. PCOTY videos and reviewer comments have already shown that the GT's quite happy to get its tail out and keep it there...

FPV's stringent safety measures also include superior braking and handling together with ABS and traction control (sedan only).
No suprises there.

Re: Tornado is Here!

Has anyone got any interior pics?? I want an oil pressure guage in my XR and I believe the new FPV's are putting one or two guages up where the analog clock would normally be. PERFECT!!! No argument where the hell i can put it I can get the FPV setup!!!


Thanks.

It's O.K. just found one. The Tornado looks great.
