Melbourne 2009: FPV F6 E “Concept” breaks cover…

February 24, 2009

The FG-series FPV lineup is quite exciting. You have the usual F6 sedan and ute and the GT / GT-P / GT E sedan and Pursuit / Super Pursuit utes. We even now have the F6X Territory. Now if we go back to the GT range we see the “GT E”. This GT is a step above the rest in the matter of luxury. Sure, it still has the 315kW BOSS V8, but the suspension and interior alike have been ‘luxurised’ for a more smoother ride and handling. Ford has lacked this from the F6 side, so what to do come Melbourne International Motor Show time? I know! Make an F6 E “concept”.
