FPV Turbo 6 Wish List

Seeing as we are having so much un in the other thread thought might continue.

What is your wish list for an FPV Turbo 6...

Six speed box
19 inch rims
Decent bodykit
New colours ie metallic oranges, yellows etc
Mesh front grill
Reduced weight
300kw power
Trac control for manual and auto
Brembo front brakes std
Koni or Bilstien shocks
Bonnet vents.....

If you are not spinning your wheels in 4th you don't have enough power

Re: FPV Turbo 6 Wish List

Being realistic, considering its position in the lineup and its likely price, I'd like to think it would get basically an identical spec as GT for appointments, have the same options available, get a tougher manual box than the T5, get unique 18" rims, get unique bonnet vents, and perhaps a unique mesh in the front airdam ala T3 and the Tickford logo!

That would be feasible and possible IMO.

Re: FPV Turbo 6 Wish List

While it's all good to add more items to your very own wish list, if you think of it from FPV's point of view they'de have to add an extra $15,000 to the price too. Who would pay that?

I'm sure both Ford and FPV would love to put on better brakes, have less weight, more power, refinement, technology and features, but then you'de have a car up to euro standards ala BMW or Merc. From their point of view they have to put out a car that is good for a price that ozzies can afford and be competitive.

As far as the FPV turbo "if" it gets released think it will be a considerable improvement over the standard XR6T with the FPV touches.

Re: FPV Turbo 6 Wish List

Tickford/FPV have said that all bonnet vents and bulges must be funstional.

Also the Tickford logo in the front airdam, dont think Prodrive would like that.
