FPV's GS Sedan is individually-specced to provide a combination of GT-based 302kW V8 engine performance, FPV chassis enhancements, bespoke GS graphics and FPV driver comfort features.

With only 10 of the limited edition vehicle earmarked for New Zealand, the new FPV GS Series model harks back to the original Falcon GS of 30 years ago, introduced with the XW-model of 1969 and now the second most collectable Ford Falcon behind the GT.

"GS is another iconic badge in Ford's family history," FPV General Manager Rod Barrett said."Our aim is to develop a model that provides the performance, prestige and individuality that is a signature of the FPV brand, with its own identifiable model personality and all at a great price."We've achieved all of that and expect the new GS will find its own place in performance motoring folklore."

Like its namesake from three decades ago, the new FPV GS Series offers a long list of options that include a FPV-spec 4-pot Brembo brake upgrade, a six-speed auto transmission recalibrated specifically for the GS 302kW engine, leather seats and sat-nav.

The FPV GS Sedan is priced at NZ$71,490 for both the automatic and manual transmissions. The utility will not be made available to NZ customers.
