They All Turned the Color of Avocado: Mercury Shows Hispanic-Themed Milan at Miami Fashion Week

Ford says the Milan is now Mercury's top-selling car among Latino customers, and as such, the company charged designer and resident latin lover, Camilo Pardo, with creating a special-edition Milan directed at a Hispanic audience. Pardo's creation — a pointedly decked out model — was revealed during Miami Fashion Week, with help from caliente actress Roselyn Sanchez, who's picture most assuredly would adorn a mami-dollar bill if such currency existed. The car, which will be auctioned for charity on eBay, is painted in "stainless" blue metallic with black/vanilla bean custom leather-trimmed seating and door inserts, 3D Carbon exterior ground effects, H.R.E. competition 943 20" under Pirelli tires, and stainless steel roof appearance cap — and includes Milan Premier interior package which comes with power moonroof and in-dash 6-CD sound system with MP3. Moreover, to complete the obscure punk-rock reference, Camilo Pardo was never called an asshole.
