Ford FPV F6

2008 Ford FPV F6
Ford Press Release

Ford FPV F6 2008With an awesome 310 kW of power, Ford Performance Vehicles' (FPV) new turbo-charged F6 sedan is one of the best performing six-cylinder vehicles on the Australian market.

"The F6 is a phenomenal car with performance equal to or better than many European sports cars, but at a fraction of the price," Ford Performance Vehicles General Manager Rod Barrett said.

"This is the ultimate driver's car with a fantastic combination of performance and dynamics making it an amazing car to drive."

Powered by the high performance 4.0 litre turbo-charged DOHC 24 valve in-line six, the F6 produces maximum power of 310 kW at 5500 rpm and maximum torque of 565 Nm across the range from 1950 to 5200 rpm.

To achieve the significant 40 kW increase, FPV engineers strengthened the piston design and cranked up the boost. A new intake system has improved airflow from the air intake to the engine head inlet, which substantially reduces pressure drop without a loss of boost capability.

Ford FPV F6 2008"Importantly, while we've delivered a vehicle with impressive power and torque figures, we haven't compromised on driveability and fuel efficiency," said Barrett.

The F6 boasts fuel consumption figures of 12.3 litres per 100 km in manual transmission and 12.1 litres per 100 km in automatic guise, a seven percent auto and nine percent manual increase in fuel efficiency over the previous model.

In another first for FPV, owners will have the option of the performance TR6060 six-speed manual transmission or the ZF six-speed high-torque automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift at no extra cost.

Matching the increased power is a premium FPV performance brake package, featuring 335x32 mm front rotors with Brembo four piston calipers and 328x26 mm rear rotors with single red piston caliper.
