About FPV

Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) is the Melbourne-based official performance tuning division of Ford Australia, founded in 2002.

History

FPV can trace its roots back to 1991, when the Prodrive-owned Tickford joined with Ford Australia as their tuning division. The Ford Australia/Tickford partnership produced the original Falcon XR6 and XR8 models. In 2000, the FTE (Ford-Tickford Experience) outfit was formed in an effort to counter Holden Special Vehicles. It was under the FTE banner that the acclaimed T-Series was launched.

FTE's products were generally well-received, but sales were below targets. In 2002, Ford Australia launched the all-new BA Falcon. To complement the launch of the new Falcon, Ford decided that FTE needed a radical makeover. The FTE name was replaced with the new Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) moniker, an all-new range was devised (headlined by a new FPV GT, based on the Ford Falcon), and all Tickford branding disappeared.

Despite appearances, most of the personnel from the Tickford days remained. Through FPV, Ford Australia sought to rival Holden Special Vehicles, something which FTE emphatically failed to do. Sales steadily increased, and by 2006, FPV sedans were consistently outselling HSV sedans. FPV's products are generally highly rated by the motoring press (the current model F6 Typhoon was crowned Australian Performance Car Of The Year by Motor magazine in 2006.)

Car Insurance Comparison – Why It is Important

Knowing what to look for when making a car insurance comparison is getting to be more important all of the time. Most, if not all states require motorists to have some level of auto insurance.

But now, states like Mississippi that do not have insurance databases are going to have them, and there must be proof of insurance before the automobile can get its tags renewed. According to the Jackson Free Press, the Mississippi legislature passed a new law in mid-March of 2011 requiring that motorists have more than just an insurance card, but actually have the insurance and be in the database. No insurance means no tags. This will prevent motorists from signing up for insurance and then canceling the policy to save money and still have the card.

With this becoming more common, it is more important now than ever to know how to make a car insurance comparison. Everyone wants to save money on auto insurance, and if that is the name of your game, you will want to get the absolute minimum that your state requires. That does not necessarily mean that you are going to have great insurance, though, because it will most likely just be liability. If your car still has some value to it, this may not be the best for you. If your car is totaled, you will have no way to recover the loss.

If you are already covered under a health insurance plan, it may not be necessary to get additional medical coverage with your auto insurance. If not, this could be crucial. Other additions that you will have to consider include towing, comprehensive coverage, theft, extra liability, car rental and a number of other options your agent will be happy to show you.
