President Grover Cleveland said, “A man is known by the company he keeps.” We like to think the same is true of automobiles. Take, for instance, the list of the “100 Most Beautiful Cars of All Time” compiled by Edmunds Inside Line. In and amongst the likes of both classic and contemporary Maseratis, Posches, Bentleys, Fisker Karmas, and Bugattis is a handful of Fords, including…. drumroll, please… the 2013 Ford Fusion!
The Fusion’s lines are so graceful (Ford calls them “sleek and stylish”) that some compare the front end to that of the Aston Martin DBS… not much of a stretch considering Aston Martin was part of the Ford Group until 2007. (Listen to Chris Hamilton talk about the 2013 Fusion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95XmHu1SRlo)
The Fusion’s beauty continues on the interior. Recognizing the importance of individual preference, designers added ambient lighting options. Drivers can rotate among seven colors (white, orange, red, ice blue, green, blue and purple).
It’s not all about looks, though. There’s also a model for those attracted to environmental friendliness. The ’13 Fusion Energi Hybrid Plug-In is expected to deliver the equivalent of 100 mpg.
Not surprisingly (we’re not biased or anything) the Fusion’s not the only Ford to make the “Beautiful Cars” list. Also included are the ’32 3-Window Coupe, the ‘33 Cabriolet, ‘56 F100, ’64 GT40, ’65 Mustang 2×2, and the ’67 Shelby GT500.
