Created by the Ford of Australia’s performance branch, under the FPV name (Ford Performance Vehicles), the Falcon GT was originally presented as a concept car. But this is all going to change and in one of their best years yet, Ford Motor Co. has announced that the Falcon GT will enter production as the Falcon Limited Edition.
“We were totally blown away by the positive feedback received from fans and show-goers on our Concept. 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 quickly”, said Rod Barret, General Manager at FPV.
According to the manufacturer, the FPV GT Black will be powered by the same 5.8 liter V8 supercharged engine as the Concept, which will be developing 449 horsepower and a maximum torque of 420 lb-ft.
Available in only one color, and I guess you know what that color will be, only 125 units of the new FPV GT Black will be manufactured.
An exact date for its official launch hasn’t been announced yet but its price has: 74.290 Australian dollars (75.769 USD / 53.106 EUR).
