The new T-Series from Ford pushes the limits in every single parameter of performance. The powerplant: a 21st century evolution of the legendary Windsor V8. Stroked to push out 250 kilowatts of seemingly endless thrust with 500 Newton metres of torque. Each of these mechanical masterpieces is hand-built and every engine is engraved with the name of the artisan who brought it to life. But what is power without control? The T-Series sports handling package incorporates fully independent front and rear double wishbone suspension. Massive 18 inch unique alloys with Dunlop rubber and optional Brembo brakes give prodigious grip and braking performance. Inside, the driver and occupants are treated to sports performance seating with standard leather trim. It’s all carefully designed to put a smug, superior grin on your face. And why not? After all, you do own the road.
