FPV BF GT-P
LIMITED EDITION OF 300 PIECES - RELEASED AUG 2018
Biante Model Cars are very pleased to present the 1:18 Scale Ford Performance Vehicles BF GT-P in the very impressive Mercury Silver colour scheme.
Released in October 2005, the FPV BF Mk.I GT Series consisted of the GT and GT-P variations. Both variants were powered by 5.4-litre Boss 290 V8 petrol engines with either six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Compared to the previously released FPV BA GT, there were a number of notable differences on the new versions. The BF GT Series could be identified by their revised front bumpers, fog lights, 'jewel-effect' tail lights and twin exhaust outlets.
Mechanically there were slight differences between the two but the exterior of both the GT and the GT-P were a sight to behold. Both versions sat on 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels (although there was a slight variation in the design of the two) and featured eye-catching 'BOSS 290' graphics on the bonnet and GT / GT-P side stripes which added a real presence to the look of the car. The sticker kits worked very well in tandem with the array of bold colour options, they we're unmistakably a modern Australian muscle car with clear influences from famous Ford GT's of the past.
Produced in high quality sealed body resin, the 1:18 Scale FPV BF GT-P is a finely crafted model. Despite being a sealed body model, the interior detail has been expertly replicated which can clearly be seen through the clear windows and the exterior lines are very sharp. The exterior finishing and colour of this model is a real standout also. The Mercury Silver paint job and the Orange sticker kit work so well together and it will simply be a beautiful collectors model to display.
It should be noted that the images featured here are of a prototype sample and there are numerous areas that need to be corrected prior to production. Overall though, the FPV GT-P is shaping up to be a real beauty and given it will be produced in a limited edition, it's one that shouldn't be missed.
