Are you more likely to look at MV Agusta now that AMG will be controlling them?
Unless you want a swift kick to the nuts, never, EVER, try to challenge a Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S 4MATIC to a drag race.
When the 670-horsepower C63 AMG’s tires hit the Russian dragstrip, it whooped the asses of a 700-hp Corvette Z06, a 700-pony BMW F10 M5 and an 830-horsepower Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG.
With the announcement that Dodge will bring forth the apocalypse Hellcat Charger, where does that leave Bavaria in the mighty sedan horsepower wars? Well frankly, it leaves them in the dust.
