Ford Falcon FPV GT RSpec Gets 450 hp

While not very well known outside Australia, the first use of the Ford Falcon name can be traced back some 62 years, to the very nice-looking XK-saloon. In its current incarnation, the Falcon has been with us since 2008 and is the seventh incarnation of the car.

Now, Ford of Australia (which is sadly closing up shop in the coming few years), have just launched an extreme version of the car: the FPV GT RSpec. It gets a 5.0-liter V8 engine, which is boosted by a supercharger to 450 hp and 420 lb-ft (570 Nm). The grunt is sent to the rear wheels via a manual or automatic six-speed gearbox.

Furthermore, to help keep it pointing in the right direction when setting off, and doing so briskly, the RSpec gets 275-section tires on the rear, as well as a reworked launch control system. It also gets stiffer suspension, new shocks and thicker anti-roll bars.

If you are interested, make your decision quickly, as only 350 of these will ever be made, and one can be yours if you have $76,990 AUD ($81,327) lying around and are willing to spend.
