I agree with you 100% 20V - I ask myself this all the time - why does Ford America suck so much but Ford Australia is just awesome?

FWIW - it's a straight 6 w/a turbo, 367 hp/406 lb-ft of torque - 5 speed manual - rear wheel drive - 4.0 litre engine.

Unveiled at the 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 turbo-charged and intercooled six-cylinder F6 270 Turbo engine will produce an amazing 270kW of power and a staggering 550Nm of torque – the highest torque output of any production engine ever built in Australia.

The F6 Typhoon will join the GT, GT-P and Pursuit Ute as part of the FPV range with production scheduled to commence in the fourth quarter of 2004. It is expected to retail between $56,000 and $59,000 when it goes on sale, further emphasizing FPV’s philosophy of providing outstanding value and performance. All F6 Typhoon owners will also experience the benefits of the FPV Performance Driving Course. FPV is the only manufacturer in Australia to offer a free defensive driver training course with every new vehicle.

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 embroidered in the headrests. It also features aluminium pedals and interior highlights and the unique FPV dash-mounted starter button. The F6 Typhoon production concept has 355mm front and 330mm rear cross-drilled and ventilated brake rotors with race-bred Brembo calipers and a five-speed manual gearbox.
