Ford blokes are now chuffed to bits as Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) announces a new 5.0 liter supercharged V8 for the Falcon GT in the Australian market! This unit has 335kW at 5750rpm and 570Nm all the way from 2200 to 5500rpm, and has been developed by Prodrive at a cost of AUS$36million.

By downsizing the engine from 5.4 to 5.0 liter they also managed to lower the weigh of the engine by 47 kg. The supercharger also helps it to deliver more torque at lower engine speeds than its predecessor, ensuring the effortless acceleration typical of the FPV brand. With the new powertrain, the Falcon does o to 60 mph in under five seconds and runs the quarter mile in less than 13 seconds.

The Miami engine is produced in two power ratings by altering the level of boost from the supercharger: a 315kW model in the Falcon GS and a 335kW version in the Falcon GT, GT-E and GT-P. These four high-performance vehicles are produced for the Australian market by Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV), a joint venture between Ford and Prodrive, and are the latest in a series of high performance versions of regular Ford models built by the company.
