BA II FPV Range

Having read the article in Motor magazine about the FPV turbo six I was wondering about the potential FPV car line up when the BA II is released and the possible Territory inclusion. How does this look?

* FPV Lightning Turbo 6 Sedan 280kW
* FPV Lightning Turbo 6 Utility 280kW
* FPV Territory Turbo 6 280kW
* FPV GT 290kW +
* FPV GT-P sedan 290kW +
* FPV GT-P utility 290kW +
* FPV GTHO ( ? ) kW
* FPV Fairlane

Re: BA II FPV Range

I think you're on to something there, though I might add a couple of things to your ideas...

BA II means a bit of weight reduction, and definately time for a power upgrade, so I am expecting the GT and GT-P to go up to around 320kw to close the gap on HSV.. hopefully a bit of weight shed will lengthen the gap by a further bit more...

I say most of those are excellent figures, and unfortunately for BA GT Drivers I can see about 6 - 9 months after general release of BAII we will see GT|GT-P|Pursuit at 320kW due to the launch of the FPV Turbo at 280kW. Forget FPV GTHO with the BA series of cars, perhaps with the BE range :) Am I talking from a basis of fact/knowledge, nah just gut feeling and past history.

Re: BA II FPV Range

up the power but keep the 290 figure.. noone will know for sure(think late 90s evo lancers and gtrs), except for the fact that they're getting quicker and quicker.

but fpv can just say they've tweaked the chip for a better power/torque delivery.

Re: BA II FPV Range

admittedly i havent been keeping up with all the info on the territory, but is it really in the same league as the falcons? i thought it was aimed more at the small/medium 4WD market, in which case why would you want a performance 4WD?

im not meaning to bash anyones ideas, matter of fact id like to be brought up to speed on the whole thing!

I wouldnt be holding my breath to long for an FPV Fairlane, after the sales flop the TL50 was.

Mercedes, BMW, Porsche and HSV have a performance 4WD vehicle. There are Mum's out there that need to get the kids to school quickly!!
FPV would be mad not too do it but then again.....
