Tuscany Black Ops Ford F-250 unleashed by Performax International

Tuscany Black Ops Ford F 250

Flagship, special edition F-Truck converted for Australia by Performax International.

PERFORMAX International will unleash its right-hand drive Tuscany Black Ops Ford F-250, an apocalypse-surviving behemoth capable of towing up to five tonnes, at the National 4X4 & Outdoor Expo in Brisbane this weekend.

With more than 25 years' experience in the aftermarket industry, Performax International will reveal the ‘Black Ops’ version as the flagship model of the new Tuscany range. However, fans of the blue oval will know that F-Series Tuscany vehicles are also available in RHD format from Harrisons F-Trucks.

If you want something even more insane, check out this custom Black Ops F-250 that pulls like a freight train.

Carrying the 6.7-litre V8 common-rail turbo-diesel engine that’s good for 335kW and a mind-melting 1268Nm, the Black Ops version – based on the USA’s biggest-selling pick-up, the Ford F-Series Super Duty – cops a six-inch suspension lift, exclusive 20-inch wheels and 37-inch tyres, and all-black paintwork, badging and external hardware. That big V8 is combined with a six-speed automatic transmission and on-the-fly 4WD.

Standard features also include heavy-duty Tuscany performance-tuned shocks, dual steering stabilisers, and a Black Ops powder-coated bullbar with integrated LED lights.

The price it costs to stand out in a crowd with a Tuscany Black Ops F Truck will be at least $199,000 (plus on-roads). Performax offers a three-year, 100,000km warranty.

Performax International offers RHD versions of the Tuscany Black Ops F-150, the FTX F-150 and F-250, bright-yellow Tonka and GMC Concept One. The Queensland-based company also manufactures RHD Ford F-Series, Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra, Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan pick-ups.
