UpSpec XR6T Please.....

ok, this is my dream car....

An XR6T with GT based interior. Whats the chances of Ford/FPV customising a car to this extent for a customer? You see, the performance, handling, looks and potential of the XR6T is what i'm after, but with a more unique and upmarket interior..GT's..perfect...besides this would still most likely sit in my budget, get it on road for around 60 grand say....

What do you think???

FPV, please, do a hot version of the T6 with snazy interior....

I think your chances are the same as mine getting grip under full throttle....

Your best bet is to start looking around at people who do custom interiors as I have done at Herrods

I think they will definately be looking to see if there is a market for it. I would think there is but they would be better researched then me I guess. As for a one off for you only unless your last name is Polites or Flint I wouldn't count on it

Easy solution, put premium sound and leather and yeah you have yourself a pretty fine looking Turbo inside. Ive been looking and thinking about getting a Black Turbo sedan with the premium sound and leather, but i dunno YET.

now that would be nice.. i think similar GT styling with a turbo engine would be excellent.

My own opinion on an FPV Turbo 6 is that it - like the GTHO - is only a matter of 'when', not 'if'.

One look at the number of Subaru WRX's sitting in Ford used car lots in Sydney tells you where a lot of XR6T buyers are coming from - this is THE next cult classic.

Raptor has sold me on the Predator name, and the car itself has got way too good a rap for FPV not to take it further. They'd be crazy to limit themselves with a 'no turbo' attitude - in fact, wasn't it David Flint that said that they'd be doing what HSV can't and looking at other models besides the V8 range?

We may need to be patient, but I think you'll see this car well before the GTHO.

Yeah the Predator name suits a 280kw FPV Turbo. I don't really care about more luxuries, climate control does nothing for me. What I want is premium sound and leather, whcih you can option for XR6 T anyway.
