For 20 years, AMG has taken innocent and docile Mercedes and injected them with tire-shredding torque, roaring exhausts and spine-shattering suspensions (for an anthropomorphic analogy of AMG’s work, click here).
In the 1968 film “Bullitt,” Steve McQueen careened through the streets of San Francisco in a Highland Green Ford Mustang. Fifty years later, Ford’s homage isn’t just a show pony or a collector’s toy; it’s the best Mustang currently for sale.
