Get your mitts on one of 500 FPV Limited Edition GT F 351 Sedans. These are a very special FPV, and will be a classic car in time. Powered by a Boss 5.0-litre, supercharged DOHC 32 valve all-aluminium V8 engine, the 351 in the FPV name stands for the 351 kW that rumble under the hood. Some of you may remember the Cleveland V8 used in the Ford GT in 1969. Back then, the number 351 stood for the cubic capacity of the Cleveland V8, which powered the fastest production sedan of its era. Now you can own a piece of history by purchasing the last greatest FPV sports sedan from Ford.
Torque for the FPV Falcon GT 351 hits a maximum of 570 Nm, right ready to scamper up the boot of an HSV Clubsport R8. Tuned for great handling the FPV Limited Edition GT F 351 has the awesome R-SPEC suspension with retuned dampers, increased spring rate, a reinforced lower control arm, a bulked up anti-roll bar and revised rear toe setting. Stopping power comes from massive Brembo brakes. The front set has Brembo 6-Piston brake callipers, while the rear set comes with Brembo 4-piston brake callipers. Linked to either the Tremec 6-speed manual gearbox or the world renowned ZF 6-speed automatic transmission with its Sequential Sports Shift, you can rest assured that the engine power comes commandingly, very quickly. Feel the true exhilaration of the ultimate FPV machine, and light up the tarmac with what is one of the finest handling RWD Sports Sedans on the market. Shod with 19-inch rubber, the 275/35 R19 Dunlop Sports Maxx tyres do a superb job of providing superior grip in both the wet and dry conditions, and with Launch Control, smooth, swift acceleration is instantaneous and addictive.
I really don’t know why Ford wants to get rid of such a good thing; Falcons are so comfortable, spacious and safe. Interior comfort of the new FPV Limited Edition GT F 351 Sedan is first rate, with performance leather sports seats with suede inserts the perfect blend of luxury and support. All necessary electronic equipment like satellite navigation with traffic message Suna Traffic Message Channelling, a Human Machine Interface (HMI) with Interior Command Centre (ICC), the best premium audio system, Bluetooth mobile phone integration and iPod & USB Integration are all standard features. In the centre of the dash is an 8-inch colour touch screen to connect you with the range of on-board information and entertainment features.
On the open road, few cars can keep pace with the lusty FPV Limited Edition GT F 351. High speeds are effortless, and the Bi-modal twin pipe quad outlet active exhaust system burbles beautifully under throttle. What a way to cruise the highways. A supple ride and gorgeous leather seats make for a dream ride.
So do treat yourself to one of Australia’s special drives. The FPV Limited Edition GT F 351 Sedan will be sure to attract buyers in years to come, so it’s a safe investment – not to mention an enjoyable one! Again, I do stress that you best be in quick as they will roll out the door very quickly, indeed. Once the 351 kW FPV Falcon GT goes, a Ford XR8 with 335 kW will continue from September 2014 until the rest of the Ford Falcon range comes to an end no later than October 2016. Yes, I know, like me you can wipe a tear from you eye. But don’t be left wiping tears from your eyes because you missed out on purchasing one of the 500 FPV Limited Edition GT F 351 models.
