Only "trendsetters" picked up by the Fashion Force

If you have been in New York for Fashion Week, it wasn’t an embarrassment to be picked by the Mercedes Benz AMG Fashion Force – it meant you're in with the in crowd, the way cool, the super hip, the fly, the sick – or however they put it these days.

If these cops picked you up it was because you were STYLIN’ and they wanted to give you a ride to your next destination in true Mercedes style.

"The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Force car is a statement about New York being one of the greatest fashion capitals of the world and the confident approach to individualistic style that people strive to explore throughout this amazing city," said stylist Brad Goreski.

The tricked out AMG has been turning heads and causing doubletakes since Feb. 10 because it looks just like a police car. It ceases prowling the streets around Lincoln center today.

Chances are, the members of New York’s finest can only wish they we cruising in a vehicle like this.

They would really like the 451 horsepower, top-speed of 174 mph, 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, 7 speed automatic transmission with four shift modes/functions, not to mention the crisp handling that comes from three-link, multi-link, strutted and stabilized suspension.

The dual climate control with dust filter would help with split gender two-person teams and the city’s sporadically smoggy atmosphere.

The array of media, tech and video displays would send most police cruisers whimpering back to the porch with tail twixt legs.

In addition, those high-speed pursuits would be a lot less nerve-wracking and public endangering in a steel-reinforced cabin with front & rear crumple zones, seatbelts with pre-tensioners plus force limiters, an unrivaled airbag system including dual front pelvic airbags, active front head restraints, ABS disc brakes with brake assist , three-stage electronic stability and anti-slip regulation.

Then there’s the sweet paint job and the Mercedes badge emblazoned on the doors.

Nevertheless, I haven’t been able to get picked up by the Fashion Force in my Gucci loafers and Hugo Boss sport coat, so I guess I’ll have to go down to the dealer and beg for a test drive just like you.

May lady luck smile upon both of us.
