The last ever Ford Performance Vehicle, the FPV GT F Sedan, is finding plenty of customers willing to commit deposits unseen.
The undoubtedly memorable and very collectable edition, which is set to launch in June, still remains largely a mystery with no official confirmation of specifications or power figures from FPV.
We do know that 550 FPV GT F sedans will be built (with 50 of those heading to New Zealand) while an additional 120 FPV V8 Persuit utes will finalise the FPV story.
Ford Australia says that over 200 of the GT Fs have already been accounted for with multiple dealers selling out of their allocations.
“We knew the FPV GT F sedan and the Pursuit ute were going to be important celebration vehicles for us but more importantly our loyal FPV customers,” Ford Australia boss, Bob Graziano said.
“But the response has even amazed our dealers. The passion and enthusiasm being displayed by our customers for these vehicles is a reflection of the passion our design and engineering team have brought to the table in developing and building these cars.”
Among the buyers, many have asked for specific build numbers to match their existing collection. Build numbers 007, 011, 022, 040, 075, 077, 017, 101, 117, 192, 300 and 302 are already accounted for.
Most of the existing 200 pre-orders have picked the GT F with a manual transmission, even though a six-speed automatic will be on offer.
List price for the GT F sedan sits at $77,990 while the FPV V8 Pursuit Ute will set you back $52,990.
The FPV GT F will be unleashed in June, with Ford promising to release more details closer to launch. The FPV GT R-Spec, the fastest Falcon in history, produces 335kW and 570Nm from its supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine, though the GT F is expected to be even more powerful.
Do you think the FPV GT F will become a collector’s item and an appreciating asset?
