Ford Spends Time Making AV8R Mustang, Loses $8.7 Billion...

The AV8R also includes pieces from the Bullitt, as well as a Ford Racing supercharger and other go-fast bits good enough for 400 horsepower. While we know the AV8R isn't the direct cause of the company's $8.7 billion second-quarter loss, we can't help but notice that it's the European Fords set to save the company, rather than something designed by the apparently preoccupied American engineers. The AV8R goes up for auction at the end of this month, but they promise the money won't be used to bail-out Ford. Press release below the jump.
