Exterior Features

FPV Super Pursuit, the Boss of Australian High Performance Utes.

The Super Pursuit takes the ultimate expression of the utility and goes one better. The front end styling is inspired by the GT-P, boasting a tri-slot front splitter, upper and lower grille mesh finished in satin alloy and the unique Boss 290 hood decal.

The side profile features the trademark Super Cab storage design and the FPV hard tonneau as standard, featuring an FPV 3 pillar rear spoiler that adds to the aggressive appearance. The Super Pursuit wheel arches are filled out with the new 19" 5 spoke alloy wheels, which showcase the massive red Brembo front brakes — standard on Super Pursuit.

The FPV Super Pursuit exterior styling takes the best from the Pursuit and GT-P to create a 2-door high performance utility, that's "fully loaded".

Interior

Comfort Inc. The high-backed GT-P inspired FPV Performance seats are heavily bolstered and decked out in Le Mans cloth. The FPV logo is embroidered onto each seat in unique FPV silver stitching. Suede feel bolsters and locating pads help support and grip. Leather and suede feel seats are a no cost option. The driver's seat has 4-way electric adjustment. The Premium interior command centre (ICC) contains a large TFT colour display screen, featuring displays for the dual-zone climate control, 6-stack in-dash CD featuring 6 speakers and trip computer. The FPV Sports gauges display oil pressure and oil temperature. All this and the practicality of a spacious Super Cab design.

The numbered Super Pursuit build plate is set in the centre console. Cruise control and power windows are standard as is the Performance steering wheel. The alloy pedal covers with rubber inserts and sides make for better heel-and-toe driving. The Super Pursuit. The ultimate V8 FPV Ute.

Engine

Introducing the Boss 290 powerplant

The Boss 290 combines the best of both worlds, with race-bred power and everyday comfort. The awe-inspiring Boss 290 is a powerplant unlike any ever built in this country and comes to life on Australia's only current V8 engine production line.

The Boss 290 was developed right here in Australia by Ford Performance Vehicles for our unique requirements and to meet the rising demands of a new breed of Aussie V8 drivers.

Its 5.4-litre capacity, 32 valves and double overhead camshafts per bank therefore work in concert to produce 290 kilowatts of power and a phenomenal 520 Newton metres of torque. So not only is there free-revving top-end power but a wall of torque at low speeds as well. In combination with the tuned stainless steel exhaust system, it produces the trademark rumble that lets you know you're driving a real, blue-blooded Aussie V8. It has a quality that clearly communicates who exactly owns the road.

Transmission

Boss 290 transmissions. If the Boss delivers power, our custom-built gearboxes unleash it.

The T56 6-speed close-ratio manual transmission. This is a seriously slick gearbox that makes the absolute most of Boss 290 power. The ratios are spaced for maximum performance, minimum fuss. The FPV shift alert tells you when to change for optimum upshifts.

Auto fans can option up to a high-torque ZF 6-speed automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift at no cost. This high-performance automatic gearbox offers the best of both worlds. Its Sequential Sports Shift system allows the driver to make fast, clean manual gear changes to maximize all the available power for acceleration or quick downshifts. When in full auto mode, the adaptive shift system changes characteristics to suit your individual driving style.

Both transmissions are matched to a 2-piece tailshaft with shock-absorbing flex couplings, connected to a heavy-duty multi-plate limited-slip differential, transmitting maximum power to the ground.

Ride & Handling

Control Inc. Total Performance isn't just about acceleration. It's also about superior ride, handling and comfort. The Super Pursuit comes with FPV's front double wishbone suspension. A torque-sensitive limited slip differential and traction control is available on all FPV models. Leading to incredible grip, faster turn-in, better cornering balance, straight-line stability, superior safety and for a performance vehicle, unbelievable comfort. You control the car. Not the other way round.

Brakes

The power to stop is just as important as the power to go, so FPV engineers have developed a range of Brembo brake packages that will stop you in your tracks. Brembos are the brand of choice for Formula 1, Ferrari, Porsche, AMG and Champ Car teams.

Premium Brakes

For the ultimate in stopping power, the FPV Premium brake package, which consists of 355mm × 32mm cross drilled and slotted front rotors with Brembo 6 piston calipers and 330mm × 28mm cross drilled rear rotors with single piston rear calipers, are standard on Super Pursuit and optional on F6 Tornado and Pursuit.

Brembo brakes are amongst the best brake packages in the world and are another example of FPV's commitment to Total Performance.

Safety & Security

At FPV, we believe that safety is a major part of Total Performance. As such, all FPVs are monitored by Ford's advanced Intelligent Safety System. This Ford-designed high-tech software activates appropriate responses to potentially harmful road, traffic and driver situations.

The system co-ordinates the release and synchronisation of dual-stage driver and passenger airbags and front seat belt pre-tensioners to maximise driver and passenger protection in the event of a mishap. FPV's stringent safety measures also include superior braking and handling together with ABS and traction control, available on all FPV models. The safest car, of course, is the car that helps you avoid an accident in the first place.
