Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) has today added to its flagship range of executive performance Ford’s with the release of an all-new concept, the F6 E.
Mating the raw power of the turbocharged F6 with the luxury of the newly introduced ‘E’ specification, the F6 E has been designed to satisfy calls from the market for more performance based executive vehicles.
Powered by the proven 4.0-litre turbo-charged DOHC 24 valve in-line six, the F6 E produces maximum power of 310kW at 5500 rpm and 565Nm across the range from 1950 to 5200 rpm.
“With the success of the new F6 and GT E, it was a natural progression to couple the performance and dynamics of F6 with the more subtle executive styling, luxury and comforts of the GT E.” Ford Performance Vehicles General Manager Rod Barrett said.
“With the release of this concept we will test the market’s reaction before deciding whether or not to put the F6 E into production,” Barrett added.
“Feed back from our customers leaves us confident that the F6 E will be a hit with those looking for something more from their performance vehicle.”
The new F6 E features the ZF six-speed high-torque automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift as standard and boasts a fuel economy figure of 12.1L/100km.
The F6 E receives a Brembo performance brake package as standard, with 355mm cross-drilled and ventilated front rotors with six-piston callipers up front and 330mm cross-drilled and ventilated rear rotors with 4-piston callipers at the rear.
The styling of the F6 E has been subdued with colour coding of the “racoon-eyes”, chrome accents and a refined lip spoiler replacing the large rear wings found on the other models.
The F6 E is available in a subtle exterior palette of eight colours – Winter White, Silhouette, Lightning Strike, Velvet, Sensation, Steel, Ego, and Seduce.
Inside the cabin, the F6 E features luxury performance seats in shadow leather with the F6 E logo embossed on the headrests and a dark walnut woodgrain finish on the dashboard as well as the doors.
The interior is packed with features to ensure a premium driving experience, including a sports leather steering wheel with cruise control and audio mounted switches, dual zone temperature control air conditioning, front and rear power windows, and memory adjustable pedals with alloy pedal controls.
If FPV does decides to make the F6 E available to the public – which does seem likely – target pricing for the F6 E would be $78,190.
