2008 Ford's FPV 5th Anniversary edition

Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) revealed today the FPV 5th Anniversary Edition at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. FPV is the high-performance arm of Ford of Australia (like the U.S. Ford’s now defunct Special Vehicles Team.) This special edition of Aussie Ford’s full-size Falcon GT will be limited to only 200 units priced at $71,890 (Australia).

Power comes from Ford’s 5.4-liter quad-cam 32 valve Boss 315 V8 making 432 hp. Transmission choices for the sedan are a six speed manual or ZF six speed high torque automatic transmission with Sequential Sport Shift. To stop all this power, Ford upgraded the brakes to a 6-piston Brembo brake package.

Because this is an Australian car made for the Australian market in left-hand drive only, there are no plans from Ford for this to come to America. But who knows, someday your mailman may just get a little cooler.

Press release after the jump.
