2005 Ford FPV F6 Typhoon

Ford Performance Vehicles rewrote the rules in the Australian high-performance car segment with its first turbo-charged production concept car – the F6 Typhoon.

Únveiled at the 2004 Melbourne Motor Show, the F6 Typhoon is certain to establish FPV as the technical leaders in the tribal high-performance market and reinforce the six-cylinder engine as a worthy alternative to FPV's class-leading Boss 290 V8 engine.

The 4.0-litre turbocharged and intercooled six-cylinder F6 270 Turbo engine will produce an amazing 366 bhp of power and a staggering 406 lb-ft of torque – the highest torque output of any production engine ever built in Australia.

This car is the next step in re-affirming Ford Performance Vehicles as the benchmark high-performance car manufacturer in Australia,' says David Flint, Managing Director of Ford Performance Vehicles.

'It will broaden the appeal of the Ford Performance Vehicles brand and introduce a new range of owners to our family. But we believe it will also expand the boundaries of what our owners expect, and what they experience, from Ford Performance Vehicles as it delivers a completely unique and exciting driving experience.

The F6 Typhoon production concept is instantly recognizable as part of the FPV family with its standout styling. However, it has a range of unique

styling cues, including pewter highlights on the front and rear bumpers, high-tech mesh grille inserts and a rear bootlid spoiler with FPV's trademark three-pillar design.

Inside the cockpit, the car has sports seats with a technical design, suede bolsters and FPV identification in the headrests. It also features aluminium pedals and interior highlights and the unique FPV dash-mounted starter button.
