FPV Wins Prestigious Performance Car Award

March 2006

Ford Performance Vehicles has won the 2006 Australian Performance Car of the Year award from MOTOR Magazine.

The latest BF model FPV F6 Typhoon has finished first in the opening round of MOTOR Magazine’s revised Performance Car of the Year award, topping a Ford trifecta ahead of its Falcon XR6 Turbo siblings.

The turbo-charged F6 Typhoon scored 350 points from a total of 400 to be judged the best Australian-built performance car by MOTOR’s leading journalists and current V8 Supercar driver, Warren Luff.

“When FPV was established we promised to stretch the boundaries of the Australian high-performance car market,” said David Flint, Managing Director of Ford Performance Vehicles.

“The F6 Typhoon has certainly created a new niche in the Australian high-performance car segment and provided our business with the foundations for even greater success in the future.

“It is an honour to be recognised by Australia’s leading performance car magazine, MOTOR, as producing the best locally-built high-performance car. It is even more pleasing to be leading a trifecta of turbo-charged Ford vehicles.”

MOTOR Magazine editor Jesse Taylor said “FPV's F6 Typhoon is equally at home on the road or getting belted around a race track. It does it all well and really is a complete package. That's why it wins the title of Australian Performance Car of the Year."

"Now that FPV's Typhoon has won the Aussie round of PCOTY, it receives an automatic entry to the Grand Final testing where it'll do battle with the best performance cars in the world."

Not only has FPV kick-started the year in winning style with the Australian Performance Car of the Year, it has recorded the best start to a year in the showrooms with record sales in January and February resulting in a 44 per cent increase year to date over 2005.
