Be the Carsguide FPV Guest Tester

One lucky Carsguide reader will be among the first to get behind the wheel of this awesome machine as our Guest Tester.

...following on the heels of the hot F6 E unveiled a couple of weeks ago.

And one lucky Carsguide reader will be among the first to get behind the wheel of this awesome machine as our Guest Tester.

The new vehicle will be released nationally on September 1, but FPV is not releasing much in the way of detail, except to say the mystery car will again pay tribute to Ford’s rich muscle car history.

“Our next model to be revealed is something we’re really excited about,” FPV’s general manager Rod Barrett said. “The beauty of being a local manufacturer is that we can respond relatively quickly to market demand.

“And this new V8 vehicle -- along with our recently released F6 E -- is a product that we envisage will be warmly welcomed by fans of the blue oval,” he added.

“With plenty of FPV DNA running through its veins, our new addition will, like the rest of our range, be easily identified on the street and from behind the wheel as an FPV product.”

And you could be the one to fly to Melbourne to drive this car for a weekend in October, as Carsguide’s Guest Tester. You’ll also have a guided tour of the FPV and Ford Performance Racing workshops, hosted by one of FPR’s V8 Supercar drivers.

After the test drive, your review of the car will be published on carsguide.com.au, with photos of you at work behind the wheel.

This competition has closed, and with all the great entries, the Carsguide Guest Tester judges had a difficult task. But the final winner was Nikki Robbins of Brisbane, with:

“Our FPV who art not released, What say be they name? Thy colour range? Thy engine size? On quarter-miles how shall thee run? Give us thine fearless V8 brute strength, Forgive thee less-fortunate in Holdens, Lead us not into disappointment, But deliver us thine test-drive, Ford ever-and-ever, amen.” Congratulations to Nikki, and to all the entrants — there’ll always be next year...
