Ford FPV BF Super Pursuit

FPV Super Pursuit, the Boss of Australian High Performance Utes. The Super Pursuit takes the ultimate expression of the utility and goes one better. The front end styling is inspired by the GT-P, boasting a tri-slot front splitter, upper and lower grille mesh finished in satin alloy and the unique Boss 290 hood decal.

The ultimate FPV Ute. Quad cam Boss V8 engine, new GT-P 5-spoke 19" alloy wheels with machined outer rims, Traction Control, 355mm x 32mm cross drilled and slotted 6 piston front Brembo brakes with 328mm x 26mm cross drilled rear rotors with red single piston calipers (optional on F6 Tornado and Pursuit). Close ratio 6-speed manual gearbox or the optional ZF 6-speed automatic. Aggressive front styling features satin-alloy upper and lower grille mesh and bright finish fog lamp surrounds. FPV Performance seats in Le Mans cloth or the option of leather. FPV instrumentation including sports gauges for oil temperature and oil pressure. Premium sound system featuring large TFT colour screen, dual zone climate control and 150 watt 6 stack CD system. New design FPV stripes are a no-cost option. A new hard tonneau is standard with the option of a chrome Sports Bar. Super Pursuit. Fully loaded.

The side profile features the trademark Super Cab storage design and the new FPV hard tonneau as standard, featuring an FPV 3 pillar rear spoiler that adds to the aggressive appearance. The Super Pursuit wheel arches are filled out with new 19" 5 spoke alloy wheels, which showcase the massive red Brembo front brakes - standard on Super Pursuit.

The FPV Super Pursuit exterior styling takes the best from the Pursuit and GT-P to create a 2-door high performance utility, that's "fully loaded".

Comfort Inc. The high-backed GT-P inspired FPV Performance seats are heavily bolstered and decked out in Le Mans cloth. The FPV logo is embroidered onto each seat in unique FPV silver stitching. Suede feel bolsters and locating pads help support and grip. The driver's seat has 4-way electric adjustment. The Premium interior command centre (ICC) contains a large TFT colour display screen, featuring displays for the dual-zone climate control, 6-stack in-dash CD featuring 6 speakers and trip computer. The FPV sports gauges display oil pressure and oil temperature. All this and the practicality of a spacious Super Cab design.

The numbered Super Pursuit build plate is set in the centre console. Cruise control and power windows are standard as is the FPV Performance steering wheel. The alloy pedal covers with rubber inserts and sides make for better heel-and-toe driving. The Super Pursuit. The ultimate V8 FPV Ute.

The Boss 290 combines the best of both worlds, with race-bred power and everyday comfort. The awe-inspiring Boss 290 is a powerplant unlike any ever built in this country and comes to life on Australia's only current V8 production line.

Developed right here in Australia by Ford Performance Vehicles for our unique requirements the boss 290 meet the rising demands of a new breed of Aussie V8 drivers.

Its 5.4-litre capacity, 32 valves and double overhead camshafts per bank therefore work in concert to produce 290 kilowatts of power and a phenomenal 520 Newton metres of torque. So not only is there free-revving top-end power but a wall of torque at low speeds as well. In combination with the tuned stainless steel exhaust system, it produces the trademark rumble that lets you know you're driving a real, blue-blooded Aussie V8. It has a quality that clearly communicates who exactly owns the road.

The power to stop is just as important as the power to go, so FPV engineers have developed a range of new Brembo brake packages that will stop you in your tracks. Brembos are the brand of choice for Formula 1, Ferrari, Porsche, AMG and Champ Car teams.

Premium Brakes

For the ultimate in stopping power, the FPV Premium brake package, which consists of 355mm x 32mm cross drilled and slotted front rotors with Brembo 6 piston calipers and 330mm x 28mm cross drilled rear rotors with 4 piston rear callipers, are standard on GT-P and Super Pursuit and optional on F6 Typhoon, F6 Tornado, GT and Pursuit.

Brembo brakes are amongst the best brake packages in the world and are another example of FPV's commitment to Total Performance.
