BA FPV Pursuit - AP's Latest

Some pics of the new beast. Have only a few photos and had already removed the hardcover. Car now has an alloy sports bar fitted.

Way back in February after Ford sent the car to FPV in the first batch of core vehicles

Same day, interior shown before FPV touches.

Car's build sticker showing data and the little sticker saying my beastie was a sales priority unit (arrived two months later)

Later that month at the FPV Family Day

Front view. because Brembos are fitted and no GT wheels yet, car has some reject wheels temporarily fitted.

Rear view same day. Notice hardcover fitted already. No bodykit. Loaner temp wheels. Interior also had minimal work at this time. XR8 badges - maybe they got confused.

The donk that justifies part of the cost (he he he)

Interior shot. Steering wheel has arrived but still more work to do.

Delivered Friday 11-Apr-2003

At last, new car delivered!!!!!!!!

Rear badge on tailgate.

These plates get heaps of positive comments. Adds a nice touch in my humble opinion. Of course had to add my custom touches....

Nothing like a good set of juicy Brembos to touch things off.

Rear view no hardcover fitted. Morning after delivery. Shows my issue with the rear tailpipes - being the same rear exhaust as an XR8 they hang way too low. In my view FPV haven't finished this off properly - why have a bumper recess for pipes and then hang them all the way down there?!?

Offset rear view. Look a bit plain but with the alloy sports bar (no pics yet) it looks way better. The hardcover is in storage.

22-Apr-2003 The Easter Weekend Down In Canberra

Front view. In better light others said it looks real menacing in the rear view mirror. Must say when driving WASA's car it did look obvious when compared with the BA XRs on the day. I'm also very much growing on the virtues of the Mercury Silver.

Offset view same place same time. Of course I left my camera switched on and couldn't take any more pics later with some of the Canberra cars in attendance.

Looks absolutely mint! Love it!

I can't wait until i'm old enough (have worked hard enough) to go to a dealership and pick out any new car that takes my fancy!!!

It'll be a great day indeed..

Very nice, Ford have really gone a long way to make the ute a sports car. I love the Brembo's.
I can see the exhaust tips definitly needs aligning.

Now have you taken the hounds for a run???

Do you still have the I6 powered wagon.

Love the number plate covers.
