During the BA-BF model era for Ford an all new engine was developed and manufactured in Geelong, Victoria.
It was a turbocharged, intercooled, twin cam, alloy head, 4 valves per cylinder, with variable cam timing on a huge 4.0 litre cast iron block.
This all new, world class, straight 6 cylinder engine was code named Barra. Short for Barramundi, a fierce Australian fish.
These Barra engines are well known for producing over 1000hp in street cars and surprise many due to their tame and quiet idle until the boost comes on.
Ford Australia created a specific model for the new Barra engine, named the Falcon XR6 Turbo in the BA model range. It was an instant success with
the Australian public. The only way to top this achievement would be to release a limited edition, high performance version of the XR6T.
So in the BA MKII model range of 2004 a sportier FPV (Ford Performance Vehicles) F6 Typoon was introduced with more power, better brakes, handling
and more aggressive appearance to fill this void.
Sedans ran an F6 Typhoon badge and Utes ran an F6 Tornado badge throughout the BA-BF range. However it was thought that for the new, more refined
FPV Turbo vehicle in the FG lineup that the extreme storm titles would be dropped and the top of the range FPV sports turbo vehicle will now be known as just the F6 310.
Build #269 is this Winter White F6 310, ordered new in this combination by its 1 and only owner, with only 32 other 2011 F6 310
vehicles with matching build and options. The Ford Verification papers stating this will be included in the sale to the buyer. The owner of this
vehicle from new is a very fussy, middle aged, car enthusiast who has babied and pampered this Beautiful F6 from day 1, until now. It has been driven
primarily by his wife, so I suppose we should add “One Lady Owner” to the description.
The F6 has traveled 106,200km with all books and full service history. The 105km service has recently been completed, including engine drive belt and pulley,
spark plugs, coils, new Yellow top Optima Battery, several bushes, front disk rotors and front tyres. It runs a safe 340rwkw tune with all mods performed
at Bullet Performance Racing and Tuned at Dalton Automotive in Geelong. The engine bay still looks almost standard apart from the Herrod Motorsport intake.
However the Original Airbox and Cat are included in the sale. It is a Very Fast, but inconspicuous street car and Super Exciting to drive!
It rolls on Genuine FPV GT-R Spec Alloy wheels for the added inch of rear rim, to run 275 tyres and assist with traction. All rims are in Excellent condition.
The Factory Leather Interior is in Immaculate Condition, with all electrics and options working as they should. The steering wheel looks more like
a 25,000km vehicle, than a 100km car. The body has no scratches or trolley dents and would suit the fussiest of buyers.
This FPV F6 310 is definitely one for the collectors. Not just because of its impressive presentation, but more so for its rare 1 owner History.
It comes with everything that you would get when purchasing the vehicle new including the original sales receipt from Strapp Ford in Doncaster,
the FPV Compendium, Leather Wallet and Pen (all as new, never removed from their packaging).
The car has a clean title, with no accident history, hail, flood, or finance owing.
It is advertised with 11 months Vic reg and RWC for Victorian buyers.
Interstate transport can be arranged at buyers expense.
