FPV’s POWER PLAY

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Special Report -

FORD Per­for­mance Ve­hi­cles’ new F6 en­gine will pro­duce 310kW and the new Boss V8 en­gine now pro­duces 315kW. The F6 will be pow­ered by a high-per­for­mance 4.0-litre tur­bocharged in-line six-cylin­der that pro­duces 310kW at 5500 revs and 565Nm from 1950 to 5200 revs.

The 5.4-litre Boss V8 en­gine also re­ceives a sub­stan­tial per­for­mance up­grade, pro­duc­ing 315kW at 6500 revs and 551Nm at 4750 revs, an in­crease of 13kW from the pre­vi­ous Boss 302 en­gine.

The F6 gets a 40kW in­crease, mak­ing it one of the best high-per­for­mance six-cylin­der pro­duc­tion cars on the mar­ket.

To achieve the power lift, FPV en­gi­neers strength­ened the pis­ton de­sign and cranked up the boost. A larger in­ter­cooler is mounted in front of the ra­di­a­tor and sub­stan­tially re­duced pres­sure drop across the in­ter­cooler pro­vides bet­ter air­flow with no loss of boost ca­pa­bil­ity.

The 310kW tur­bocharged six will power the F6 and F6 Ute. The 315kW Boss V8 will fea­ture in the GT E, GT-P and GT sedans and Su­per Pur­suit and Pur­suit utes.

The Boss 315 badg­ing will fea­ture on the GT and GT-P’s newlook power bulge and en­gine cover.

The F6 will carry F6 310 badg­ing on the sides and rear of the sedan and ute, and on the en­gine air-cleaner box.
