Ford Australia Unveils 421hp F6 E Concept: And We Though the SHO Was Cool


Ahead of the Melbourne Auto Show in Australia, Ford has released details of a concept car based on its FPV rear-wheel drive sedan. Called the F6 E, this concept car take the performance of the FPV F6 GT and the luxury and refinement of the FPV FE… hence the name F6 E.

Don’t follow? We don’t blame you.

All you really need to know is that this sedate looking sedan is powered by a turbocharged version of a 4.0-liter Ford inline-six that makes 421hp and 417 ft-lbs of torque. And we thought the SHO was cool… well, apart from its outrageous asking price.

The F6 E isn’t cheap either, however, with a proposed price of $78,190 Australian (roughly $50,000 U.S.) for the concept.

And in case the rest of the press release doesn’t tip you off, when a company mentions pricing, it usually means a “concept” car will see production.

Other highlights in the car include 19-inch wheels and Brembo six-piston front calipers with 355mm rotors and Brembo four-piston rear calipers with 330mm rotors.

“The F6 E has been designed to satisfy calls from the market for more performance based executive vehicles,” said Ford Australia’s Performance Vehicles General Manager Rod Barrett.

“With the success of the new F6 and GT E, it was a natural progression to couple the performance and dynamics of F6 with the more subtle executive styling, luxury and comforts of the GT E.”

As for the design of the car it will feature more normal colors, rather than the shocking colors offered for the GT and will make use of chrome accents and a small spoiler rather than large rear wings and the GT’s infamous “racoon-eye” headlights.
