2014 FPV GT F 351 The Most Powerful GT Sedan Ever Produced by Ford Australia
Ford officially launched its celebration FPV models in Australia, the
limited-edition FPV GT F sedan and Pursuit Ute.
The most powerful GT sedan ever produced by Ford Australia, the FPV GT F is
powered by a 351 kilowatt supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine. The GT F's
output was specifically chosen as a reference to the iconic 351 cubic-inch
5.8 litre V8s that powered the original Falcon GTs.
The beating heart of the GT F has undergone specialised development by the
Ford Product Development team and partner Prodrive Premcar to meet customer
expectations of both performance and driveability.
"Our goal was to create the best vehicle we could; a vehicle that pays
respect to Ford GTs of old yet celebrates all that is good about Ford's
performance credentials," FPV Chief Program Engineer, Peter de Leur, said.
Apart from developing a character-filled 351 kW of power, the V8 engine in
the GT F sedan has a transient overBoost function in the engine management system
that will enable drivers to access 15 per cent more power, if the
prevailing conditions are favourable.
The GT F 351's power curve has been calculated to deliver a very noticeable
feel to the car's performance. This is delivered in every gear above 4000
rpm, other than first gear.
"When we started this program we had an opportunity to look at a
performance increase for the engine so we developed a strategy around the
calibration that allowed for a performance upgrade without impacting the
all-round driveability of the car. In doing so, we were also able to make
this car special for our FPV GT F customers. We were also able to add
things like rear camber bolt adjustment on the rear suspension so it can be
adjusted for track days, if a customer wishes," de Leur said.
Developed to celebrate Ford's performance brand, the new FPV GT F also pays
homage to the legendary Falcon GTs of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Each will carry an individual build number, with many specific numbers
reserved by collectors and Falcon GT enthusiasts.
Customers have rushed dealers Australia-wide to secure the celebration run
of FPV GT F sedans and Pursuit utes. Very few GT F sedans remain available
and there is strong interest in the Pursuit utes.
Just 500 of the FPV GT F sedans will be built for the Australian market,
with an additional 50 built for New Zealand. Ford will build just 120
In taking the covers off, Ford revealed for the first time the GT F's
unique bonnet 'black out', which harks back to the original Falcon GTs.
The 'black out' panel extends over the roof and rear deck lid, giving the
last FPV a unique look.
Exposed too was the model's distinctive 'stealth' exterior striping
package, together with gloss black accents on the 'raccoon eyes', grilles,
appliques, door handles, mirrors and rear diffuser, ensuring that the GT F
is unlike anything that has come before it.
'GT orange' detailing is another feature of this newest and celebratory
FPV, which used on the model's unique '351' badging, instrument dial faces,
seat stitching and embroidery, build number and manual transmission
plaquette and the ICC start-up screen.
Ford's designers have given the interior finishes an even more contemporary
look with darker tones and more lustrous finishes, including to the
instrument panel spears, which have a look new to previous FPV models.
Available in five colour variants from the Ford palette, FPV GT F buyers
have been given the choice of three colour tonings that convey either a
bold and modern look, tone-on-tone elegance or a sense of heritage that
recreates the original look of the first Falcon GT.
Ford also announced that every FPV GT F owner will be able to purchase a
tailored car cover in dark grey and with model logo and stripe print.

2000hp Twin Turbo Ford GT - Burnouts and Drag Races
You can pretty much hear the power of this 2000hp twin turbo'd Ford GT taking part in Shift S3ctor
Airstrip Attack 7.
With a number of burnouts in the area designated for tyre warming before
hitting the drag strip it makes for some cool video before the sounds of
the car putting the power down and heading to over 200mph in a half mile.
Thanks for watching, Tim

BLACK MAMBA - 1500hp TT Ford GT
Armik’s BLACK MAMBA TT Ford GT - Talk about an EARGASM! There was some
cool sh*t at Shift S3ctor, but every time this TWIN turbo Ford GT pulled to the line literally
EVERYONE stopped what they were doing to drool in awe of the sound and
crazy acceleration of the car! You could close your eyes and STILL be
satisfied by this wicked machine!! The car is capable of 1500hp but was
dialed down several times during the event due to traction.
FPV GT F 351 Review and 0-100 km/h in 4.6-seconds
I grabbed the keys to FPV's most powerful car ever, the GT F. This short
video includes a 0-100km/h run and a great sample of some noises the GT F
Production has been limited to just 500 units and almost all have now been
accounted for. Producing 351kW in standard form, the GT F is capable of
almost 420kW while in transient overBoost!
This video was filmed on a private circuit.

Desert Proofing the Ford Raptor! - Dirt Every Day Episode 2
On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams up fits and outfits one of
the coolest 4x4's on the market today, the Ford Raptor. Raptors are high
performance desert machines, but we found one that earns it's owner a
living each week banging around on an obscure desert compound. The owner
is hard on his equipment and we took this poor bird of prey under our wing
for a week to transform it into a more vicious desert predator.
Dirt Every Day appears every other Thursday on the Motor Trend channel.

2002-2005 BA Falcon GT-P Test Drive
Here I tested a circa 2002-2005 BA Falcon GT-P. As a result of the mob down
at FPV (Ford Performance Vehicles) this car's quite nice for the price.
But, as always, it's built to a price NOT a quality. More attention to
detail is needed, better material should be used for the interior, stripes
should be a part of the duco and the engine was running out or puff just
when it needed to get cracking.
Overall, not too bad of a car. It's suitable as a daily driver in our
country and will happily go almost anywhere you need to in Oz. Plenty of
boot space, can be set up for towing if required.
The brakes were ok, not as good as you'd need for a track day or an arvo of
hooning through city streets with all the starting and stopping.
Clutch's crap and likely to smoke like an American cowboy should you choose
to do a heap of drags in quick succession.
Overall, though, nice car, for one almost Aussie built. Certainly more Oz
blood sweat and tears then any Commodore to date, but not enough for me to
call it an Australian-built car, just some of it and mostly assembled in
