Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) have revealed the latest addition to their FG range with the unveiling of the all-new F6 E.

Originally launched as a concept vehicle at the Melbourne International Motor Show earlier this year, the F6 E has been designed to satisfy calls from the market for more performance based executive vehicles.

“We launched this car at the Melbourne Motor Show as a concept vehicle and the expressions of interest in it have been enough to warrant us to go into a production run of the vehicle as a full-time addition to the range,” FPV General Manager Rod Barrett said. “The F6 E will cater for the corner of the market — in particular executives — that want the performance and dynamics of the F6 with some added luxury appointments in subdued styling.

Powered by the high performance 4.0 litre turbo-charged DOHC 24 valve in-line six, the F6 E produces maximum power of 310kW at 5500 rpm and maximum torque of 565Nm across the range from 1950 to 5200 rpm.

The new F6 E features the ZF six-speed high-torque automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift as standard and claims a fuel economy figure of 12.1L/100km.

The F6 E receives performance 355 x 32mm cross drilled and ventilated front rotors with Brembo 6-piston calipers and 330 x 28mm cross-drilled and ventilated rear rotors with Brembo 4-piston caliper as standard kit.

The interior environment of the F6 E is charcoal and receives a dark walnut woodgrain finish on the dashboard as well as the doors.

Interior features include 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.

The F6 E is equipped with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and side curtain airbags, both of which are now standard across the entire FPV range. In addition, the F6 E also features a reverse parking camera and reverse sensing system as standard.

Other safety features include Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and a 4-channel Anti-lock Bracking System (ABS), driver and passenger airbags and Beltminder technology for both the driver and passenger.

The F6 E will be available in New Zealand from December 2009 and will be priced at $87,990 +on road costs (including GST).
