- Gold Coast FPV GT F customer secures build number “351”
- Lucky recipient a long-time enthusiast and customer of Gold Coast dealer Sunshine Ford Motor Company
MELBOURNE, 05 Jun., 2014 – A Gold Coast man is celebrating after securing build number “351” in the limited run of FPV GT F sedans.
After announcing earlier this month that the final FPV model would have the most powerful and advanced engine ever built by FPV, with a 351 kilowatt version of its famed supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine, dealers were swamped with requests to secure the “351” build number.
The “351” nomenclature of the FPV GT F pays homage to the 351 cubic-inch 5.8-litre V8 engines that made the Ford Falcon GT such an iconic performance car in Australia, in the 1970s. It is considered by many to be one of the most desirable of sequences in the FPV GT F build.
To support as many customers as possible, Ford offered FPV customers the opportunity to request their preferred build number through their dealer. The large majority of these requests were fulfilled, much to the delight of many customers. However, when it came to perhaps one of the most iconic numbers “351”, Ford decided to conduct a random draw to allocate this prized build number.
Gold Coast dealer Sunshine Ford drew FPV GT F number 351 in the ballot, and quickly allocated that car to a very happy customer, who wishes to remain anonymous.
“We could probably have got a lot of money for the car on the open market but we are absolutely about rewarding loyalty, to the brand and to the dealership,” Sunshine Ford General Sales Manager, Ross Tanner, said.
“The lucky recipient has been a fantastic long-time customer of ours, he’s bought a lot of vehicles from us, and he’s a genuine FPV enthusiast. He absolutely loves the brand, loves the cars and was beating my door down to make sure he got one of these final models.
“He’s even got himself the Queensland registration GT351F to go on the car.”
Sunshine Ford sold its allocation of eight FPV GT F sedan and two Pursuit utes in just three days.
Customers have rushed dealers Australia-wide to secure the celebration run of FPV GT F sedans and Pursuit utes. Very few GT F sedans remain available and there is strong interest in the Pursuit utes. Both the sedan and ute go on sale in June. Just 500 of the FPV GT F sedans will be built for the Australian market, each one individually numbered. 50 have been allocated to New Zealand, each with their own specific NZ build number.
Alongside the GT F sedans, a refreshed FPV Pursuit ute will also be released. Ford is building 120 Pursuit utes.
The GT F sedan has a Manufacturer’s List Pricing of $77,990* and the FPV V8 Pursuit Ute is $52,990.*
*This is the Manufacturer’s List Price for the vehicle only. A number of other components, including a dealer delivery fee, stamp duty, registration, compulsory third party insurance and other statutory charges may be payable by a customer in relation to the purchase of this vehicle. The final transaction price will be as negotiated by the customer with their chosen FPV Dealer.
