Performance enthusiasts will enjoy the power of the 290kw quad-cam Boss 290 V8 engine and links to the famous GT heritage when the new range of Ford Performance Vehicles goes on sale in March*.
With a recommended retail price (RRP) of $59,850 for the manual GT, FPV will re-define the market for Australian built high performance cars.
"People who love performance motoring will love these cars. The very competitive pricing is just one more benefit they're going to love," said Ford Performance Vehicles Managing Director, Mr David Flint.
As a part of the pricing strategy, Ford Performance Vehicles owners will be able to participate in a performance-driving course in their home state at no extra cost.
"Offering the performance driving course is an important element of the Ford Performance Vehicles ownership experience and is very much integral to the entire FPV philosophy," said David.
"Performance driving is not about how fast your vehicle can go in a straight line. In the real world, cars go around corners and are called upon to brake quickly at times. The performance-driving course will give owners avoidance and recovery skills in handling those situations and will also highlight just how good these vehicles are."
Recommended retail pricing (RRP) for the Ford Performance Vehicles range is as follows:
Still don't like those stripes. I definately wouldn't get any. Don't like the front splitter (not sure what you call it) on the GT, I like the GT-P chrome one better that doesnt have gaps, and I like the GT-P wheels better too.
