FPV has announced the launch of its most limited edition vehicle to date, the GT Black
Following a positive response to the FBV Concept revealed at the recent Australian Motor Show, Ford Performance Vehicles has decided to taken the popular black-on-black treatment to 125 units of the current standard supercharged Boss 335kW GT, creating the FPV GT Black. New Zealand will get eight of the units.
“We were totally blown away by the positive feedback received from fans and show-goers on our Concept,” FPV General Manager Rod Barrett said.
“We knew we had a winner with the black paintwork and we wanted to action something immediately. The public spoke and we listened and I am just thrilled we have been able to put the GT Black into production so quickly.”
“All the feedback received has been collated and the results present exciting possibilities for the FPV brand in the future. The GT Black is the beginning of some exciting times ahead as we continue to work on new product and design enhancements to reflect the needs and wants of the market.”
With all black finished styling, black alloy wheels, black tail pipes and all-new matt black striping decals the GT Black is sure to be a show-stopper on the roads.
The limited edition GT Black is powered by the all-aluminium BOSS 335 5.0-litre supercharged engine with a maximum power output of 335kW at 5750rpm, combined with maximum torque of 570Nm delivered across a broad 2200-5500 rpm range.
The newest addition to the FPV stable will be finished in menacing Silhouette black paintwork and will carry the features of the current GT range plus some extras, including reverse camera and leather seating.
An all-new styling matt black stripe decal will feature on the bonnet, rear wing and bodysides, with the black paint treatment also carrying over on to the front and rear bumpers and upper and lower grilles.
The fog lamp bezels have also been made black, as have the exhaust tips, while completing the exterior will be GT premium five-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels finished in gloss black with black wheel nuts.
Inside the all black theme continues with black leather trim throughout, a black finish around the Interior Command Centre (ICC) unit, tissue box and door spears, and a unique black gear shift badge on manual transmission models.
Further enhancing the collectability of the GT Black, each vehicle will come with its own unique build badge and certificate of authenticity.
