Make no mistake, FPV’s farewell GT is a veritable missile.
For those who missed out on the opportunity of purchasing the limited edition FPV GT-F with only 500 on offer, they were sure snapped up ‘faster than lightning would travel through a wet dog’. MCW is winding back the clock to make it possible for those who missed the boat to purchase this iconic modern muscle car. Being a 1 owner 6-speed manual gear box with only 735km on the clock with all its original documentation, log books, manuals, purchase receipts and FPV Compendium with verification letter sold by Sinclair Ford NSW. Registered with NSW custom plate 71-GTF , with reference to the build number 71/500 still smells BRAND NEW and presents in PRISTINE condition throughout
This is far from a computer-tickle-and-decals special. The small but passionate teams at FPV wanted to go out with a BANG and something iconic, not just cosmetics and marketing waffle, and as a result, the GT-F boasts the best hardware available from FPV running a 5.0Lt V8 Supercharged producing 351KW.
It follows the same format as 2012’s GT R-Spec, featuring its mixed-width wheel and tyre package (including 19 x 9.0-inch rear alloys wearing 275/30R19 Dunlops) and the now-discontinued GT-P’s premium brakes – 355mm cross-drilled front discs with six-piston Brembo calipers, and 330mm cross-drilled rears with four-piston Brembo calipers.
GT-F’s suspension tune also mirrors the R-Spec – higher spring rates, re-tuned Sachs monotube dampers, stiffer front upper control arm bushes, stiffer upper suspension mounts, a larger 19mm rear anti-roll bar, reinforced rear lower control arms and a revised toe setting on the rear wheel alignment to improve turn-in, plus stiffer transmission mounts to “reduce powertrain and driveline movement under load”. GT-F’s blacked-out styling package – gloss-black ‘raccoon eyes’, full black upper grille, black-bezel headlights and tail-lights, black door handles, a big gloss-black rear spoiler, and a gloss-black diffuser. Then there’s the stripe package, which the designers used to enhance the Falcon’s shape. So the GT-F gets a wide, matte-black over-body stripe – reminiscent of the anti-reflective matte-black bonnets of 1960s and ’70s race cars – flanked by a thinner pair of stripes, and matte-black inserts into the scallops in the lower doors. Familiar as the Falcon shape may be, the GT-F’s look is tough and recognisably different. Interior is special with GT embroidered suede and leather accented seats which wrap around your body to give you that ultimate drive experience complimented with orange stitching throughout, the instrument dials with orange-striped faces gives the feel of that European race with 351 logos , as is the large centre touch screen has unique digital dials among them is a G-force metre,the GT-F intro screen with build number. So as it stands, the GT-F is a pretty special car and a good example of a true Australian muscle car. Now available to view at our Kogarah facility.
