FPV Cobra Sedan & Ute (AUDM)




While we wait for Ford to let the SVT gang loose on one of the Oval's US-market sedans, it's business as usual in Australia, where the awesome can't be stopped, and the current-gen FPV Falcon isn't going away quietly. Today's evidence: the just-announced FPV Cobra, a limited-edition Boss 302-powered tire incinerator that comes in both sedan and ute form. (Oh, the Boss 302 moniker stands for 302 kilowatts, not cubic inches, btw.) All Cobras are white with blue stripes, and the 5.4L Boss 302 V8 dishes out 404 horses and 398 lb-ft of torque. All that juice is directed aft via a standard 6-speed manual or a ZF 6-speed auto that's available at no additional cost.​

While the picture is great, the new Orion could not get here soon enough. With Pontiac having things like GTO, solstice and G8, and Mercury having nothing to compare, I wonder when Ford will wake up.

That sedan is hawt. They couldn't have picked a better color scheme either.

I don't get the ute fascination either.
The "Ute" was invented in Australia and the US copied idea bloated it and you guys call them pickups...

Just like pickups in the US it is a lifestyle choice I own a Territory and an XR6 Turbo Ute.... Why? because I can and its handy when we go camping.

Mowog, welcome back, and please do update us on what is going on down there from time to time.
Meanwhile, I got a feeling this will get spanked by the Maloo until a new RWD ford comes.

First Silvarado 1930, first Ute 1951
