The Ford Falcon FG was Ford’s weapon of choice for competition during the 2014 season of Australia’s ultra-popular V8 Supercar touring car series. Build to the series’ “Car of the Future” formula that was first unveiled in 2010, the car is powered by a 5 litre naturally-aspirated V8 engine, providing up to 650hp, driving the car’s rear-wheels. Based on the Falcon FG road car, the car body makes extensive use composite materials to get the car down to a minimum weight of 1310 kilograms. Using a six-speed sequential gearbox, the FG is able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, reaching top end speeds of up to 300 km/h. The Falcon FG has proven to be extremely successful in Australian touring car competition, clinching 55 V8 Supercar wins since 2008, including two V8 Supercar championships.
