FPV Boss 335 GT – Click above for image gallery

There's no shortage of similarities to be found between Australia and the United States. Both are former British colonies flying red, white and blue flags; both are big masses of land divided into states; both have Top Gear spinoffs and share a common affinity for Crocodile Dundee. We could go on, but the key commonality here is love for muscle cars. More than anything, that's what ties these two countries together from opposite ends of the Earth.

General Motors has capitalized on that shared trait by bringing powerful Holdens over to America under Pontiac badges. Arch-rival Ford, meanwhile, has gone the other way, taking a popular American performance badge and slapping it on one of its Australian products.

The result is the Ford Boss 335 GT. Based on the Falcon sedan, Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) has given the Boss 335 GT a touch more power than the 2012 Boss 302 Mustang: the 335's supercharged 5.0-liter DOHC 32-valve V8 pumps out 450 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque (compared to the 440hp and 380 lb-ft on the all-motor Boss Mustang). The power's driven to the 19" rear wheels through a six-speed manual and kept in check by oversized, cross-drilled and ventilated Brembo brakes.

FPV's also made sure the special Falcon got all the requisite striping you'd expect from a Boss, and equipped the interior with everything they bad to throw at it. With the American and Australian dollars close to par, though, the $70,000 sticker price may seem a little steep. UNfortunately, this is an exclusively Aussie product, so if you (i.e. our U.S. readers) want to show 'em who's Boss, you'll have to stick to the Mustang. Dang.

      Great muscle sedan.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I agree that it must be great to drive, but why are aussie cars all so badly pimped....this thing is embarassing looking
      • 4 Years Ago
      Well, the Lincoln LS's platform was turned into what ? 2 dr Mustangs... Is Ford now telling me they can't do the the reverse and either make a long wheelbase 4 dr rear drive car, or import a 4 dr rear drive car ? And GM failed with the G8 and has changed their minds with another imported 4 dr rear drive sports car? I think I can wait on GM if Ford does not want to do anything....

      That power rating is appearing to be a little understated, the magazines are dyno testing these cars at more than 450hp at the wheels
        • 4 Years Ago
        there is a reason for that.... just like the Japanese Sports cars of the 90's the manufacturer is underrating the power so as to not attract too much negative attention.... you see a while back us Aussies had a supercar moral panic, in that cars that were too affordable were becoming too powerful and "hoons" could too easily get their hands on then and cause a lot of carnage. that was one reason why the next edition of the GTHO never came out and was canned because of this supercar moral panic. ford also for some reason stopped producing V8 falcons for a while too. but ever since Holden and Ford V8's have always been underrated to stop these pussies from attacking the noble V8 Aussie sedan. they bump up the official power rating with every new edition but not by much, but everyone knows that a F6 Falcon produces way more power that the official ratings. its just us Aussies trying to keep our super-sedans alive.

      Sure make the new 2011 Dodge Charger look good.
        • 4 Years Ago
        As an Australian i would rather the 2011 Dodge Charger any day. Unfortunate we do get them here because they don't make em in RHD
      • 4 Years Ago
      Why did they call it the Boss "335" GT? Trying to steal BMW 335 sales? Just seems odd, beautiful blue though.

      Also intersting since this is the first supercharged version of the new 5.0L. To be honest I would have expected more. They must not be pushing very much boost.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Because Aussies measure horsepower in kilowatts and this Falcon variant makes 335kW. All recent Boss Falcons have been labeled this way.
        • 4 Years Ago
        stuff all boost and the falcon's ecu cant handle the quad variable cams so they make do with two
        • 4 Years Ago
        335 is the RWKW figure. why they badge their cars with that figure is unknown, but these are making 400rwkw with tune only so who cares!

      So is it next generation that the Mustang and Falcon merge to use one platform?

      It makes little sense to have 2 RWD platforms that have such similar uses. Both are for non-luxury cars and size-wise, they are probably fairly close (especially if the platform is modular). Seems to me that it would be a no-brainer to merge the two together and spread out engineering costs.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Nobody does full size 4dr 6 speed manual muscle cars on this planet better than the Aussie's.

      The CTS-V does have ALL the right equipment but Charger comes the CLOSEST to my budget and I will test drive a AWD R/T in RED (unfortunately automatic only) when it arrives.

      • 4 Years Ago
      Now that is what i call good looking

      Too bad in Europe we don't get these (and neither do the american's but you've got plenty of muscle cars there)

        • 4 Years Ago
        It could be possible to grey import one and SVA it but it would cost a fortune, at the end of the day at least we get GM's Vauxhall Monaro. I like it, it looks cool with those Satin Black Stripes and the whole car has a purposeful stance about it.
        Ford UK should sell it here, there should be no major problems as the car is already right hand drive. Big engined sporty saloons from Ford UK have been severely lacking of late.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Ford neeeeeeeeds to bring the absolutely awesome Aussie Falcon to the UK to relieve the mundane boredom of dull British motoring our folk might start liking cars again, wars will end peace will break out the world over & stockmarkets EU economy will boom. Bankrupt countries austerity, gloom & doom will become a thing of the past unemployment & famine will end forever.

      Nobody in the UK will every want to a drive a BMW or Mercedes ever again here you could go on and on but its pointless FOE are party poopers it won't ever happen.

      You can dream l suppose.

      While I like this I'll take the all motor boss 302 mustang over this any day.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I doubt this would outdo a boss 302 mustang anywhere, and 10hp for a supercharger? no thanks.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Same here -- I don't like increased power or performance!

        /s
      • 4 Years Ago
      Almost as cool as a 1972 E49 Charger...
