The new GT E features the ZF six-speed high-torque automatic transmission with Sequential Sports Shift as standard and boasts a fuel economy figure of 14L/100km. The GT E receives performance 355 x 32mm cross-drilled and ventilated front rotors with Brembo 6-piston calipers and 330 x 28mm cross-drilled and ventilated rear rotors with Brembo 4-piston calipers. According to Ford Performance Vehicles General Manager Rod Barrett. "The GT E is a combination of luxury V8 and executive racer. It's for those who want the power and sound of a high-performance vehicle without the overt styling and bright colours. "As opposed to the overtly sporty GT, the GT E is more subtle, with striking chrome accents and a refined lip spoiler replacing the bright colours, hood and side striping and large rear wings found on the other models."
The upper radiator and lower bumper grille mesh are finished in black chrome, while the front driving lamps are highlighted with a high chrome bezel and complemented by full body coloured bumpers. The unique 19-inch wheel design was custom matched to the GT E's premium Brembo brake package and the Alpine Silver alloy finish completes an understated yet stylish exterior. The GT E is available in a subtle exterior colour palette of nine colours - Winter White, Silhouette, Lightning Strike, Velvet*, Sensation, Steel, Ego, Seduce and Silk. Inside the cabin, the GT E features luxury FPV seats in shadow leather with the GT E logo embossed on the headrests. Regency red leather seats are available as a no cost option. Unique to the GT E, the interior environment is charcoal and receives a dark walnut woodgrain finish on the dashboard as well as the doors.
The interior is packed with features to ensure a premium driving experience, including a sports leather steering wheel with cruise control and audio mounted switches, dual zone temperature control air conditioning, front and rear power windows and memory adjustable pedals with alloy pedal controls. The GT E is equipped with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), driver, passenger & side curtain airbags, reverse parking camera and reverse sensing system as standard. Other safety features include Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, 4-channel ABS, and 'Beltminder' technology for both driver and passenger. The GT E is protected by a remote alarm and Datadot identification.
Recommended retail price for the GT E is $76,990
