First available in 1971 then again in 1972 and 1973. It claimed to be one of the fastest sedan in that year because it has Matador Machine's engine and specs. It's also used as Police Pursuit Vehicle from 1972 to 1974 but some of them still use it until mid 1980's. According to AMC, both sedan and PPV version can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 7 sec which comparable to 2006 Charger Police Car and can reach 125 mph in 43 sec while the car top speed is around 140 mph.
