The F6 Tornado is the workhorse sibling of the exciting F6 Typhoon sedan, powered by the same F6 270 Turbo six-cylinder engine with close-ratio six-speed manual transmission.

The Turbo-charged and intercooled 4.0-litre DOHC six cylinder engine in the F6 Tornado delivers 367 bhp of power at 5250rpm and 550Nm from 2000-4000rpm. It features all the upgraded mechanical elements of the F6 Typhoon sedan, including a 50 per cent larger twelve-core intercooler, dual entry ram airbox, heavy-duty conrods, high-strength valve springs and FPV oil cooler.

The F6 Tornado will come equipped with FPV Performance brakes with twin-grooved 325mm front and 303mm rear rotors with blue twin-piston front and single-piston rear calipers or the optional Brembo brakes with cross-drilled and ventilated 355mm front and 330mm rear rotors with four-piston calipers. Both packages have a three-channel ABS system with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution.

It will follow the same exterior and interior design styling as the F6 Typhoon, including the stunning 18x8 double five-spoke alloy wheels, FPV front bumper with exclusive high-tech grille mesh and F6 badge, FPV Sports seats with Technik fabric trim and FPV logos, and signature dash-mounted starter button. The F6 Tornado will come standard with air conditioning, power windows and Prestige Sound consisting of a 100 Watt system with a six-disc in-dash CD player. It will have a soft tonneau cover as standard fitment with an optional alloy Sports bar. A lockable hard tonneau cover featuring a rear wing can also be ordered.

And, as is the case with all FPV vehicles, each customer that purchases an F6 Tornado is entitled to a Performance Driver Training Course and exclusive owner gifts.
