Ford FPV GT Black !!

FPV (Ford Performance Vehicles) unveiled its most limited edition vehicle to date, the “GT BLACK on BLACK” concept, at the Australian International Motorshow in Melbourne last month.

It was there that FPV  received such overwhelming feedback on the FPV Concept, that they have taken the popular black-on-black treatment and applied the stealth-looking paintwork to just 125 units of the current standard supercharged Boss 335kW GT, creating the FPV GT BLACK.

“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.”

The GT BLACK features of all black finished styling, including black alloy wheels, black tail pipes and all-new matt black striping decals, promises that the GT BLACK will display a striking presence on Australian roads as early as late 2011.

Being reminiscent of the early Ford cars and founder Henry Ford’s mantra “You can have any colour as long as it’s BLACK!”, the FPV GT BLACK is available in one colour only, so there will be no confusion when it comes to placing an order for colour on this one !

The limited edition GT BLACK is powered by the much vaunted 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 excellent features of the current GT range plus some exciting extras, including reverse camera and leather seating, as standard.

An all-new styling matt black stripe decal will feature on the bonnet, rear wing and body sides, 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.

“With only 125 units available, we urge interested buyers to act quickly, with a number of vehicles already pre-sold.”

    • Unfortunately, Ford Performance do appear to have lost the plot a little Street Fighter. The Falcon GT has incredible heritage in this country and is currently the most powerful Australian car made. It would make sense to keep it going and make it available in the US and Uk where they love these powerful sedans. Let’s hope Ford sees the light ..
