FPV Reveals the Stylish F6 E Concept


Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) has set a new benchmark in executive styling and performance with the release of an all-new concept, the F6 E.


“The FPV F6 E has been designed to satisfy calls from the market for more performance based executive vehicles,” Ford Performance Vehicles General Manager Rod Barrett said.


“With the success of the new F6 and GT E, it was a natural progression to couple the performance and dynamics of F6 with the more subtle executive styling, luxury and comforts of the GT E.


“With the release of this concept we will test the market’s reaction before deciding whether or not to put the F6 E into production,” Barrett added.


“Feed back from our customers leaves us confident that the FPV F6 E will be a hit with those looking for something more from their performance vehicle.”


Powered by the high performance 4.0 liter 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 FPV F6 E features the ZF six-speed high-torque automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift as standard and boasts 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.


“The FPV F6 E suits those drivers who want the same power and performance of an F6 but finished in a more conservatively styled package that isn’t going to leave everyone staring at them.”



Executive styling


“The styling of the F6 E differentiates itself from its F6 sibling through the use of a softer color palette and more luxurious finishes and trim,” Barrett said.


“As opposed to the overtly sporty F6, the FPV F6 E is more subtle, with striking chrome accents and a refined lip spoiler replacing the bright colors, and large rear wings found on the other models - the color coding of the ‘racoon-eyes’ also helps the F6 E to keep a ‘low profile’.”


The upper radiator and lower bumper grille mesh are finished in black chrome, while the front driving lamps are highlighted with a high chrome bezel and complemented by full body colored bumpers. The new FPV badge takes center stage on both the front and rear of the vehicle and the new FPV F6 E badge features on the rear and side panels.


The 19-inch wheel design was custom matched to the F6 E’s premium Brembo brake package and the Alpine Silver alloy finish completes an understated yet stylish exterior package.


The FPV F6 E is available in a subtle exterior palette of eight colors - Winter White, Silhouette, Lightning Strike, Velvet, Sensation, Steel, Ego, and Seduce.


Inside the cabin, the F6 E features luxury FPV seats in shadow leather with the FPV F6 E logo embossed on the headrests.


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


The interior is packed with features to ensure a premium driving experience, including 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.


Sports performance maintains ride comfort


“The FPV F6 E gives increased response to the accelerator pedal throughout the rev range, but also provides around town drivability due to better access to torque,” FPV Head of Powertrain Engineering Bernie Quinn said.


The automatic transmission has a cylinder cut feature during wide open throttle gear changes, which shortens the ‘torque off, torque-back-on’ time between gear changes, enhancing the wide open throttle performance feel.


“The result is a vehicle with outstanding performance, better engine response and fuel efficiency, and improved operating performance under all conditions.


“The F6 E has an improved turn-in response and linearity, better steering precision and stability mid-corner and a reduced roll rate, which all work to deliver a smooth and controlled ride,” Quinn explained.


The FPV performance independent double wish bone front suspension and performance control independent rear suspension teamed up with the new Sachs mono-shock damper provides the perfect balance between a firm, dynamic sports performance feel and maintaining ride comfort while cruising.


Safety is standard in the F6 E


The FPV 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 4-channel Anti lock Braking System (ABS), driver and passenger airbags and Beltminder technology for both the driver and passenger.


The FPV F6 E is protected by a remote alarm and FPV’s ID Datadot identification


Target pricing for the F6 E would be $78,190.
