FPV launches F6 E Down Under


Ford Performance Vehicles brings its high-powered F6 E to Australia

The new FPV F6 E is a high-powered, rear-wheel drive muscle car powered by a 4.0-litre turbo-charged straight six engine, set to go on sale 1 September.

The F6 E reportedly produces maximum power of 310kW at 5500 rpm and maximum torque of 565Nm across the range from 1950 to 5200rpm.

The new F6 E features the ZF six-speed high-torque automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift as standard and boasts a fuel economy figure of 12.1L/100km.

First seen at the Melbourne Motor Show earlier this year as a concept, the huge amount of interest prompted FPV to go into production with the F6 E, which will accompany the V8-powered GT E at the top of FPV’s range.

“We launched this car at the Melbourne Motor Show as a concept vehicle and the expressions of interest in it have been enough to warrant us to go into a production run of the vehicle as a full-time addition to the range,” FPV General Manager Rod Barrett said.

The F6 E is equipped with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and side curtain airbags, a reverse parking camera and reverse sensing system as standard.

The upper radiator and lower bumper grille mesh are finished in black chrome, while the front driving lamps are highlighted with a high chrome bezel and complemented by full body coloured bumpers.

The F6 E is available in a subtle exterior palette of nine colours - Winter White, Silhouette, Lightning Strike, Velvet, Sensation, Steel, Ego, Seduce and the new Mystic.

Inside the cabin, the F6 E features luxury FPV seats in shadow leather with the F6 E logo embossed on the headrests.

The interior is packed with features, including a sports leather steering wheel with cruise control and audio mounted switches, dual zone temperature control air conditioning, front and rear power windows, and memory adjustable pedals with alloy pedal controls.

The F6 E is priced at AU$79,740 (NZ$100,500).
