What other products would we all like to see come out of FPV?

I am sure it will happen in the Future as David Flint said FPV wont be all about V8's (or soemthing like that). GT, GT-P and pursuit Ute are great starters but I would love to see the following...

FPV Focus: Turbocharged enigne biult here in Oz as a much cheaper more viable option to imporeting the Focus RS. Maybe even the best performance Focus ever?

FPV Turbo Falcon: XR6T is great, but I am usre there is so much more potential with the engine, whcih also would open the door to an even more wild Turbocharged version of it to come out with an FPV badge. Perhaps with about 280kw/500nm on about 10psi boost.

FPV Mustang(?): Not sure if the mustang will even be sold here anymore, or if it would wear an FPV badge, but would be great to see the 2003 version with it's supercharged engine to finally top off a worth while venture for Ford Australia.

GT40: Same deal I guess. I wouldn't care if it's FPV or not, just any excuse to get it into Australia.

GTHO: As mentioned above, GT and GT-P are great, but Ford really needs a hero car, a hero Falcon to finally top off an allready top range of high performance sedans. Whether it has a supercharged variant of the GT40 egnine, or a stroked version of the 5.4L, it has to be about 330-350kw or MORE, and be just about the fastest production 4 door in the world.

But that's just me. What would the rest of you like to see?

A GTHO is a must at the top end. Unlike GT and GTP though should only be seriously considred as very ltd numbers although it should show in every model. I wont be suprised if GT and GTP show up with 300-320kw so HO would be awesome with 350kw and over. Ford employees you cant start a performance car scare with 50 HOs at a price that only buisiness men can afford.

A model in at about 60k. {highly crucial to take HSV sales}. This car is a must.

A hot Turbo slotted in between XR8 and entry V8 FPV car. Whilst im one of the biggest fans for body kits and huge wings {and meaner is better} on T Series and GTs etc i dont know about them on a six. Id like a hot engine{280?},19s and brakes with Predator or Sprint badges. How tuff does Predator sound? Basically just pushing the XR concept to much higer levels. I would consider this car {along with just about every other hot Barra model:s5}.

A Focus Turbo.

serious they if they are gonna produce a GTHO then it should only make like 50 odd only for racing purposes, that would mean that the do-gooders have no ammunation for road safety bullshit.

but has other have said would love to see a striking hot Focus, i mean we missed out on the Sierra in the 80's

EDIT: HEAPS OF MERCANDISE!!, have also heard from my brother who works at a holden dealership that a hot version os the astra is coming with 140kw

Dunno about Fiesta, but R7 would be great. Maybe even show up a few porsche cayenne (or however you spell it).

Supercharged AWD GTHO? Hmm shying away from it's traditional RWD N/A V8, but if it's AWD with a similar or same engine as the 373kw/677nm engine from the GT40 then I won't be whinging at all.
