Mercedes’ mighty S 63 AMG Coupe is one of the most revered GTs on sale. So revered that its price won’t become tangible for mere mortals even when the car in question is totaled. Instead of its original €170,000 plus tag, the owner asks for… wait for it, €89,900!
The curious case popped up in Europe, where the silver S-Class Coupe example in tip top shape – if we pretend to miss the missing front suspension and left-side wheel and most of the front-end, for that matter, is advertised with only 1,700 kilometers on its clock. The airbags were deployed in all their glory so the repair bill should be an impressive one. Thank God the roof and most of the body are intact.
The owner seems to take advantage of the tight supply and long waiting lists the S 63 AMG Coupe enjoys right now. Otherwise we can’t really explain his commitment to get back as much as possible of the car’s original price. For the same amount of money you could manage to sneak away with a base Porsche 911 Carrera which, even if not as powerful or opulent, is at least in brand-new condition.
The S-Class Coupe is the sort of motor retired millionaires with supermodel girlfriends like to buy. It’s totally hot, and yet not as vulgar as a Rolls-Royce Wraith. Even a relatively “average” model like the S500 can cost about €150,000, so you can imagine how expensive the AMG version is.
