While back in the U.S. Ford is canceling its future RWD program, powerful, rear-drive sedans are the order of the day for the company’s Aussie division and its Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) offshoot. With the Melbourne Motor Show approaching, FPV has now taken the wraps off a new concept vehicle that the company claims could be produced if it garners enough excitement.

Combining brute performance with luxury styling, the F6 E Concept takes the best elements from the current F6 and GT-E models and combines them into a single vehicle. The concept has been designed to satisfy calls from the market for a more performance based executive sedan.

Under the hood is the F6 sedan’s 4.0L turbocharged straight-six engine, sending drive strictly to the rear wheels via a ZF six-speed automatic. Peak output stands at 415hp (310kW) and 417lb-ft (565Nm) of torque.

In keeping with the performance theme, the F6 E also receives oversized 355 x 32mm cross-drilled and ventilated front rotors with Brembo six-piston calipers and 330 x 28mm cross-drilled and ventilated rear rotors with four-piston calipers as standard. These reside within 19in alloy wheels.

For the executive and luxury side of things, the F6 E features striking chrome accents and a refined lip spoiler. 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 colored bumpers.

Inside the cabin, the F6 E features luxury FPV seats in shadow leather with the F6 E logo embossed on the headrests. Surfaces are finished in a charcoal plastic and are matched with a dark walnut woodgrain finish on the dashboard as well as the doors.
