2010 FPV GT supercharged V8 ‘Coyote’ spied!

A deafening whine made the ears of our spy photographer prick up, that deafening whine was the sound of a supercharged V8 Falcon.


Before the car scurried off into the distance, our photographer was able to snap some shots of what could possibly be Ford’s latest attempt at slaying Holden’s HSV offerings.
With over 60 per cent of FPV sales leaning toward the V8 engine, FPV has been desperately in need of an engine capable of taking on the ever expanding offerings from HSV.


Up until now, Ford haven’t attempted to do anything too serious to the current 5.4-litre ‘BOSS’ V8. The reason behind the delay is the impending Euro4 emissions cut-over, due on July 1 next year. The current BOSS V8 will not meet the Euro4 standards, meaning there is little point doing any further work on it.

I am dying to see this new engine in the car, from all reports of the new compliant V8, it is going to be a killer. Was discussing some of the power figures with a friend who works in the engine department, word is the XR8 will come out with a moderately tuned 310kw while the fpv could be as high as 350kw. What he refused to tell me is if they are going back to a single OHC or using one of the new blocks and assembling a Double OHC on site here. Certainly looking very interesting for Ford next year, regardless, smaller engine, great power output, has to be a win.

It may interest to know that the supercharger has been in testing since the BF series 1 on the current 5.4L engine.
So theres a fairly good chance it will be an option on at least the FPV model.

And alloy block so less weight over the front wheels for better handling
