Powered by the upgraded 5.4-litre Boss V8 engine, the GT E produces a massive 315 kW of power at 6500 rpm and 551 Nm of torque at 4750 rpm.

The new GT E features the ZF six-speed high-torque automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift as standard and boasts a fuel economy figure of 14 litres per 100 km.

The GT E receives performance 355 x 32 mm cross-drilled and ventilated front rotors with Brembo 6-piston callipers and 330 x 28 mm cross-drilled and ventilated rear rotors with Brembo 4-piston calliper as standard.

2008 Ford FPV GT E"The Premium Brake Package delivers FPV a competitive advantage over our direct competitor as they do not offer 6-piston brakes across their range," Ford Performance Vehicles General Manager Rod Barrett said.

"The GT E is a combination of luxury V8 and executive racer. It's for those who want the power and sound of a high-performance vehicle without the overt styling and bright colours."
