Ford Performance Vehicles have revealed another ‘concept car’.

The all-black GT-based FPV concept features a number of bespoke features and design treatments not previously seen.

“Taking our iconic FPV GT, we have put together a package of performance and design enhancements to demonstrate what could be done by FPV in the future,” Ford Performance Vehicles, General Manager, Rod Barrett said.

“The black-on-black treatment looks spectacular and it really changes the look of the car, so I’ll be very interested to hear what FPV enthusiasts think.”

Finished in Silhouette black paintwork, the FPV concept features a unique matt finish stripe package on the bonnet, rear wing and bodysides, a paint treatment that is also carried over to the rear diffuser.

Up front, large brake ducts are incorporated into the modified front facia, black framing has been used to enhance the rear light graphics treatment, and the vehicle carries a unique black GT badging.

The vehicle sits on 19-inch lightweight one-piece forged alloy rims, finished in black of course, which are 8.0 inches wide at the front and 9.5 inches wide at the rear, and all shod with special Dunlop SP Sportmaxx GT tyres.

Underneath there’s a track-tuned suspension specification and a full stainless steel high-flow twin exhaust system finished with quad black tips.

The performance brake package includes larger six-piston brake callipers up front and four-piston brake callipers at the rear, which are also both finished in black.

Inside, the all-black theme continues with black leather trim throughout and an all-black dash treatment that includes the interior command centre (ICC).

"We’ve equipped the vehicle with the GT’s ‘most ticked’ options, such as leather trim and reversing camera. That way, it’s a reflection of what our buyers are choosing and gives us a ‘real world’ basis to get people thinking,” Rod Barrett said.

“That’s what this concept car is about – we wanted to demonstrate the possibilities, explore the future and gauge public opinion to assist us with the evolution of FPV product.”

This new FPV concept joins past FPV concepts, such as the DRIF6 from 2006 and the F6 E from 2009 as the brand's 'think tank'.
