FPV Vehicles

Anyone see this on the FPV site?

The preview of the Ford Performance Vehicles range at the Sydney Motor Show was an outstanding success in the lead-up to its launch in 2003. At least one media poll of Show visitors rated it as the most popular exhibit.

Enthusiasts of all ages welcomed its return as the first ongoing GT model since the XB Falcon GT was discontinued in 1976. The new GT is the next step up from the XR8 in the integrated Ford and FPV performance hierarchy, and will provide a highly competitive performance package with all the legendary characteristics inherent in the GT name.

The GT and Pursuit Ute vehicles displayed at the show incorporated a number of styling cues from across the upcoming Ford Performance Vehicles range, including the GT-P. The GT show car on display featured a combination of proposed GT and GT-P exterior details while the Pursuit Ute showcased the GT-P's 7 spoke alloy wheels.

Ford Performance Vehicles found that potential buyers fell into two groups. One group, and a large one at that, loved the show car's clean, sophisticated looks.

The other group wanted to see more signature details from the GT's halcyon days of the early 1970s. Ford Performance Vehicles has developed ways of applying these details in a 21st century context.

Although the Motor Show cars did not preview all of these details, the FPV production models will meet the needs of these different customers.

What you see on this website gives you a very strong indication of how the vehicles will look - but they aren't the final spec vehicles. Not yet anyway...you'll have to wait until closer to launch to discover the surprises that we still have up our sleeves!

If FPV give the stripes/bonnet black out/etc brigade what they want, but you can still get the cars clean, then who's to complain?

i wouldnt get too excited ED Manual, no doubt it'll just be a bunch of extra options that Ford hadn't yet planned until they had the response from the crowd.

Once they get the Falcon (V8 & I6) models sorted I hope that FPV gets on with bringing us other special vehicles from the Ford range.
IMHO this is an opportunity to open a market that HSV has not / can not go after because they are perceived as a V8 only company.

One question:

Is FPV only going to 'improve' falcons, or are they going to do other ford as well??? (eg. Focus)
Or even offer upgrades for older cars?

That's exactly right Venom, why not have options such as blackouts and stuff, some people will jump at it. Same as the 69-76 vintage GT's that could be ordered with the "delete option" where you got no blackouts and decals...but the other way around.
Cater for as many people as possible I reckon!
