Can the Mercedes G63 AMG be the solution to make the Ford Fiesta ST go faster without any major engine mods?
The new Ford Fiesta ST is a wonderful thing, perhaps the best little hot hatch on the market today. But can it go even faster without it being the subject of an aftermarket tuner? Possibly, but how would one go about doing that? Enter Chris Harris, AKA "Monkey", and this week sporting a bushy beard. The respected auto scribe is already a huge fan of the Fiesta ST, but to give it that extra bit of oomph, some German backup is needed. Specifically, a Mercedes G63 AMG (yes, the G Wagon) is brought in to help.
Can the Fiesta ST go faster when being towed by the near bullet-proof G63? To give you an idea as to how powerful the thing is, it can tow four and a half tons while still having the performance of a big sedan.
