G63 AMG Accelerates While Towing a Fiesta ST [Video]
Step one: Take one small hot hatch. Why? Because they're reasonably fast and are pretty lightweight – you're going to need it to be as light as possible.
Step two: Get ahold of a lightweight trailer to put the small hot hatch on. Again, lightness is extremely important.
Step three: Get a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG and connect it to the trailer. Nobody cares about the 2,5 metric tons (5,500 pounds) of the AMG.
Step four: Profit!
This is pretty much what the always enjoyable Chris Harris did in the latest “Chris Harris on Cars” video from the Drive YouTube channel. He took a Ford Fiesta ST, put it on a trailer and got a piggyback ride on it pulled by a mighty G 63 AMG.
