Only 200 GT 40th Anniversary models will be built, each with a unique build number badge and certificate of authenticity.

All vehicles will be finished in Silhouette black with a striking gold over-body stripe kit, reminiscent of the classic GT stripe kit last seen on a locally produced Ford model with the XC Falcon Cobra Hardtop in 1978. Gold GT lower body stripes with a '40th Anniversary' decal, accent colour treatment on the side skirt flutes and rear spoiler pillars, and special GT-P 19-inch alloy wheels with gloss black accents complete the standout exterior package.

The interior of the anniversary model is equally distinctive, with FPV sports seats finished in a combination of leather and suede, featuring silver thread highlights and an embroidered 'GT' logo. FPV floor mats with '40th Anniversary' logo inlay match the exterior touches, while an iPod/MP3 audio player connection, which integrates with the FPV audio system, is fitted as standard.

In addition to the unique 40th Anniversary features that transform the GT visually, FPV has also designed a new suspension package to take the handling prowess of its latest model to new heights. The 'R-Spec' handling pack incorporates an advanced level of suspension tune, allowing customers to fully exploit the potential of the GT 40th Anniversary in track days and club sprint events. It will also feature a higher capacity oil cooler on automatic transmission models, which increases the efficiency of the transmission cooling system under the extreme conditions and temperatures often experienced on race tracks.

"We're constantly monitoring the feedback of existing and potential FPV customers and a track pack version has been high on customer wish lists since the launch of the first FPV GT in 2003," said Prodrive AT Asia-Pacific Managing Director, Bryan Mears. "Australia has a rich history of vehicle owners wanting to explore the potential of their cars in the safety of a race track. The new R-Spec package will allow drivers of this unique limited edition model to extract the best possible performance out of their vehicle."

Mr Mears said a critical element of the engineering of the R-Spec package was the need to optimise the race track potential of this special FPV model, while not compromising the ride and handling balance of the vehicle. "This package is aimed at those people who want a daily driver that can also mix it with the best at a club sprint event."

Due to go on sale in April, the FPV GT 40th Anniversary edition will be available with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, with a recommended retail price of $65,110.
