My stock FPV F6 ran 12.7 @ 112mph. Then after a tune,intake,exhaust,injectors ran 11.5 @ 121mph. Now it runs 10.4 @ 137mph with 450rwkw and yes that's still on the stock motor & box. These cars are amazing and bang for buck!

I own an FG xr6 turbo (40kw less than the F6) and ran a 12.8@107mph dead stock. All FG turbo variants don't have a problem running 12's off the showroom floor.

just as fast as a BMW 1M, same 0-100 time and same 1/4 mile time. This car has a inline 6cyl 4.0L turbo mated to a ZF auto. the best thing is its 1/4 the price at $50000! only sold in australia.

Seems to me that stock vs stock HSV still holds the upper hand.

I own an f6 310. Easy high 12 1/4 mile. I ran a 12.9 whilst I was still getting used to the car. Spend 5k on basic mods and you'll break 10's with easy 370+rwkw. Obviously tyres become a problem. But it is easily possible. Check out nizpro kits if you think I'm talking shit.

Also the new gt boss 335. Insane. Flash tune and pulley upgrade 380rwkw. In tune Motorsport on you tube will show you the tunes and updgrades. Ford/pro drive have really lifted the bar here. Hsv are really outclassed ATM

I have a G6e Turbo (Ford XR6 Turbo, luxury interior, 270kw engine)...12.9 1/4 mile runs...100% stock standard, with factory option 19" rims and factory tyres..
The F6 is much quicker...
Biggest issue is these engines dont free up until 30-45,000kms (20,000miles I guess?)
My Friends senator (HSV luxury V8) is considerably slower...still a nice car, but way off the pace of the little 6 cylinder..
And I agree with Alison above...I would prefer the Aston DB9...but also can not afford it!!

It is a good car. In comparison to a wrx. Not sti but wrx. My rex was mildly modified so I was really quite impressed it kept up really well at the top end. Its the, only boat I would consider buying. Better than xr6t , xr8, holden r8.

LOL i love all these haters all i have to say if this cars so slow and handles like a "yacht" how did it beat a bmw 335i coupe around a track(not a dodgy backyard race) but theres a video on youtube and its done by professional reviewers.

And yes the f6 is extremly restricted there some with a CAI, 100cspi cat and full exhaust and tune with over 400rwkw....theres also a done up f6 with 1249hp that 931.7kw at the wheels!

You mean you can make a car quicker by extensively modifying it? No way...

Oh, and there are H/C G8's that will spank your high 11 second car all day. I wouldn't be talking smack if I could barely break into the 11's.

Heck, this (https://fastestlaps.com/models/vauxhall-vxr8-supercharged) could match your times with just a pulley swap. Actually, it could probably do it with just slicks.

BTW, you might want to ask your mom where the period key is on her computer.

Sorry, tired of dealing with fanboys like yourself.

Are you guys serious the f6 is so restricted it's not funny just put a high flow cat back exhaust up the boost to 16 pounds and flash tune with a zf gearbox tune rrp 3000 and you will be runnin high 11's low 12's all day every day how do I know this iv got one btw hsv has nuffin on fpv

We are only allowed to use figures found by magazines or manufacturers. Third party times with slicks or drag radials aren't allowed.

Also, they don't have ford's land-yacht sedans in the states. So no, I haven't seen them run personally. I'm going solely based on figures reported by others.

And a 3800lb 420hp sedan is not running 12's on the dinky tires that Ford offers them.

If you can provide a figure announced by Ford or a reputable car editorial of a 12 second time, then do so. Otherwise, my statement stands.

Motor magazine got a shitty 13.4 out of the car because its tires are crap. An IRS, skinny little tires, and all that heft won't cut the 60' the car needs in stock trim to run high 12's, let alone mid 12's.

Maybe a third party driver could run a high 12 at a negative DA, but I don't know of any official claims of such a time. If we used this logic, the new mustang would be a low 12 second car on here. But it isn't. Get over it.

Uh  9y ago

You can't be serious apathy?

Try mid 12s for the FG F6 and high 12s for the FG XR6 Turbo. Where do you get your misinformation from? Try going to a drag strip one day and see what these cars really do.


User avatar

Apathy  9y ago

Just so you know, the HSV has gone mid 12's, even a stock GTS has gone 12's. The FPV hasn't broken out the 13's. So no, the FPV isn't faster than the HSV.

wc racing  9y ago

@fil .. HSV is nothing anst a FPV the FPV GT 335 is faster thn the HSV Clubsport Supercharged or any hsv, in a drag or arnd a track. so go and and get sme real facts b4 u commnt son!

The F6 are the best car FPV have made for power and affordability BUT Ford and FPV are a big waste of time, they are still running a 5.4 litre in their cars which has been around for a longgggggg time. They are maxing the capacity and power of their engines,making them tight and compact, making it very hard to work on the engine.I work in the ford parts division, and we sell 2-3 fpv's each month, as opposed to our local holden and hsv dealer selling 15-20 hsv each month. HSV have smashed FPV to bits in every way, looks, power,a better range to choose from. The biggest joke of FPV is the NEW GT BOSS Supercharged 335. For a 5.0 litre supercharged engine only making 335 kws (and that being tweeked to make 335) is pathetic. HSV standard 6.2 litre v8s's make 325kws with a bigger torque range. FPV GT BOSS 335 retail at $92,000 while the HSV Clubsport Supercharged are worth $90,000, having 470kws, FPV have not a chance. if you dont believe me, look up top gears clip on the superclubby on youtube.
