Re: F6 Typhoon 6 speed confirmed

I cant see any reference to climate control as standard?
I hope it is, as I believe it should be on the GT, but I cant find a reference to it

Re: F6 Typhoon 6 speed confirmed

I have one on order and was given the options list from my dealer the other day. He keeps me well informed. Usually gets the info straight from QLD FPV manager.

Re: F6 Typhoon 6 speed confirmed

Price is still yet to be confirmed. They are still saying $58 - $59K. I asked for Leather, Brembos, Premium sound and climate. This is when I found out that premo sound and climate were standard. Paid for leather and decided against brembos. I have them on the TS50 and they are awesome but after driving a GT with the FPV premos I think there is very little difference. I hear you notice the difference after a few hot laps but these cars are daily drivers me wife and I and although we probably do about 1000Kms a week between us, there are no racetracks involved. For 7K, is it worth it? I don't think so. Plus $1100 for a front set of pads, ouch!

Re: F6 Typhoon 6 speed confirmed

LOL yer abit steep for a daily driver.
I thought it had brembo package or better brakes standered?? Might have miss read it somewhere.
So really the only other option is leather then??

And dare i say F6 with premos will pull up better than GT with premos.

Re: F6 Typhoon 6 speed confirmed

Anything with the same brakes and less weight is going to pull up better!
