Last month Ford of Australia’s performance division, Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) unveiled the FPV concept, which is based on the Ford Falcon GT sedan. Today FPV has announced that the concept will be produced as the 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 is powered by a 5.0L V8 that puts out 450 horsepower and 420 lb-ft. of torque. There is only one color choice, black and Ford is only going to produce 125 units.
The GT Black is sadly only available in Australia.
