FPV: Brand overview

Founded:2002 – 2014
Founder:Ford Australia
Campbellfield, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Ford Performance Vehicles, abbreviated as FPV existed in 2002 as a specialized division of Ford Australia. Its primary role was to create high-performance versions of standard Ford models. The FPV GT, the brand’s debut car introduced in 2003, was a souped-up variant of Ford’s Falcon sedan.

FPV continued to roll out GT variants of Ford’s Falcon sedan and Ute models over the years. These models, equipped with potent V8 engines, included the GT, GT-P, GT-E, and others. 2008 marked a milestone for FPV by introducing its supercharged ‘BOSS’ V8 engine, available in models such as the Falcon GT-F and Falcon GT-P. This achievement positioned FPV as Australia’s first supercharged V8 production car mass producer.

The year 2009 represented the zenith of FPV’s production, as the company managed to manufacture more than 5,800 vehicles. Following this high point, FPV debuted an upgraded GT-F range in 2011. The revamped line featured a new naturally aspirated 5.0L ‘Coyote’ V8 engine.

In 2014, Ford Australia declared its decision to halt all local manufacturing, ultimately leading to the end of FPV. The last model to roll out from FPV’s production line was the FPV GTS.

FPV’s existence, although relatively brief, spanning 12 years, was noteworthy. During its operation, it produced approximately 30,000 high-performance Ford vehicles. Despite its eventual closure in 2014 following Ford’s manufacturing exit, FPV remains an emblematic Australian performance car brand.
