2018 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG

The 2018 model year is the last year for the W463 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen after a truly impressive 28 year model run that began in 1990. Like any good manufacturer, Mercedes wanted to make sure to move those final year units by making a bunch of special editions to pitch to buyers to take their mind off the upcoming new chassis. What Mercedes did with G-Wagen was made a bunch of special paint schemes and interior combinations thanks to their Designo team. This G63 AMG up for sale in Mississippi is outfitted with the $13,550 ”Mojave Package” which gives the ”Olive Magno” paint. Of course, the expensive options don’t end there.

2015 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG

Earlier this week I looked at a SL550 Mille Miglia 417 that was (dis)graced with matte black paint and red accents throughout. My argument was that it was an SL that no SL buyers wanted. Today’s vehicle, a 2015 G63 AMG, is along the same lines of being just as ostentatious, but Mercedes gave buyers exactly what they want.

Special Edition-CC1 package (“Crazy Color Edition”)-2015 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG? with a Sunsetbeam paint finish and a $20,000 performance studio package, which includes designo Carbon Fiber trim, two-tone paintwork, 20″ Black AMG five spoke wheels, …plus much more. This Special Edition, pearl shimmering vehicle is about as equipped as Mercedes-Benz makes a G-wagon/wagen, and is a limited edition sparten truck offered in only select countries.

If you are buying a G-Wagen, you are probably buying it for one of two reasons: To own a one-of-a-kind ultimate off-road vehicle that offers features unlike anything on the market or to own a vehicle that you can still be noticed in even if you can’t find a parking space directly in front of Starbucks. If you are in the latter of those options, Mercedes gave you everything it in power to get those eyeballs on you by offering their legendary G in every color that comes out of the Skittles bag. I’m serious, AMG calls these the “Performance Studio Colors” which are “Bold and adventurous and have an iridescent shine, perfectly complementing the glossy black accents of the wheels and roof.”  You have your choice between orange, purple, lime green, yellow or red. This 2015 is painted in Sunsetbeam Orange wasn’t just a special color you picked out, you had to drop an addition $20,000 for 20-inch AMG 5-spoke wheels, designo Black Nappa leather with color stitching, designo AMG carbon fiber trim, and AMG sport front seats. A real bargain if you think about it.

So what do you have to spend to have all the the eyeballs on you? $134,000. If you were to buy this exact G63 new as a 2017 model year, this would set you back nearly $170,000, plus tax, title, and license fees of course. This means the depreciation on the first two years and 12,000 miles was roughly $30,000. If you are a serious buyer for one these, that has to scare the hell out of you. Yes, G-Wagen residuals are generally much better than every other mass produced luxury vehicle but this is still an extremely expensive way to get yourself noticed. Then again, Mercedes-Benz knows this and they’ll keep pumping them out to the hoards of people ready to sign on the dotted line. All the more power to them I suppose, I’ll just stick to Skittles.

2014 Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG Mansory

You may of heard of the name ‘Mansory’. If not, the short of it is they are a German-based company that modifies European cars with aggressive body work and generous amounts carbon fiber. On the inside, vehicles are hit with even more carbon fiber and usually extravagant upholstery in exotic materials. Their over-the-top design and taste may not suit everyone, but you can’t deny their quality of work is extremely good. Today’s car for sale outside of Boston is an already bonkers Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG and it was taken to another level once Mansory got their hands on it.

NOT FOR US MARKET- EXPORT ONLY

Nothing that sounds this good could be wrong.

This 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG is a one owner 7 Passenger SUV with only 10,164mi (16,357km). Truly one-of-a-kind, it was custom built by Mansory on a platform of a brand new GL63 AMG. In 2016 it was brought over to the United States by the original owner on a one-year tourist visa. It is now located in our AlphaCars Showroom in Boxborough, MA and has a US title from the State of Massachusetts, where it was registered in 2016. It is offered for sale outside of United States.

NOT FOR US MARKET- EXPORT ONLY.

Being such a rare and extraordinary vehicle we are honored to have it listed with us. Right after this Mercedes Benz was purchased brand new, it was shipped to Mansory to have it completely customized.

Mansory is a custom coach builder located in Germany that specializes in creating luxury, styling and performance that consistently exceeds expectations of the most demanding drivers of the most exotic automobiles in the world.

This Mercedes Benz has the most comprehensive and most inclusive level of customization by Mansory. Just some of the features are front fascia with all carbon fiber versions that add both a more aggressive look and added weight savings. Continued along the sides of the Mercedes are custom tailored side skirts, also fabricated out of carbon fiber. Lastly, on the exterior, the rear end is fitted with a carbon fiber rear valance that has room for custom air diffusers and a spot for the custom exhaust system.

With the wide-body kit completely manufactured from carbon fiber the GL 63 is eye-catching one of the most eye-catching SUV’s you will see on the road. One of the best features on this menacing SUV is the front fascia, with its massive air intakes, flared sides, and ultra-bright lights to illuminate the road ahead. An ultra-light hood, with ventilation ducts ensures additional fresh air supply for the engine. Added width on its wings, give the MANSORY SUV its highly individual appearance. Supplemented by its side skirts, an impressive 50 mm is added to the production-series body, conveying an image of pure power even when standing still. The MANSORY rear spoiler with integrated diffuser provides enough space for the sports exhaust system with its four tailpipes. It flows seamlessly into the overall package of the vehicle. The roof spoiler provides additional surface contact pressure and improves the stability of the vehicle at high speed. Further visible carbon parts such as the mirror housings are optionally available in gloss or matt finish. Perfect surface quality and precision-fit processing characterize the lift-reducing MANSORY bodywork design.

A highlight of the interior is the use of a combination of crocodile and cowhide leather. Red and white elements of the natural leather with the striking crocodilian texture dress the interior.

Like all vehicles AlphaCars offer this has all service items and maintenance items up to date. Cosmetically and mechanically this vehicle is close to perfect with a few very minor blemishes. This is a fully loaded GL63 AMG, therefore items such as navigation, high intensity headlights, and a world renowned sound system come as standard.

This is your chance to own a world class exotic vehicle and save close to $200K compared with the replacement cost for the new Mercedes Benz GL63 AMG with Mansory Customization. Worldwide shipping is available directly through AlphaCars.

NOT FOR US MARKET – EXPORT ONLY

Lets get this out of the way first. According to the seller, this car was brought over to the United States by someone on a tourist visa. The crazy thing is, this isn’t the only car they brought with them. The story checks out because this GL63 was made for the German market. So even though this vehicle is for sale in Massachusetts, it can’t be registered in the United States. I’m just trying to wrap my head around feeling the need to bring two vehicles worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to the U.S. for only a year, as if America didn’t offer up plenty of extremely expensive cars already.

As for this specific car, it’s wild, that’s for sure. Mansory has never been one to be conservative like some of the other German tuners and this monster of a SUV surely is unique. The interior leather is so brash that I feel like they went crazy with the stitching just because they wanted to see a bunch of red stitching. Even the door cards are stitched in unique pattern. The standard black carbon fiber wasn’t enough so it was all swapped out for red weave to match the leather stitching. There is just so much going on with the X166, I can’t look at it in any kind of logical way.

Now the price of this GL63 is nearly $179,000. That is literally $100,000 more than the standard used 2014 GL63 AMG on the market currently. Is it worth it? Of course not. I don’t know exactly how much this Mansory jobs cost, but usually they are six-figure jobs. But I guess if you are the kind of person is uses Mansory as a way to differentiate your vehicles, words like “How much does it cost?” don’t get used all that often. My guess is that this thing will be packing its bags for Dubai.

Wagons Ho! Super 5-door Roundup

Perusing the classifieds for interesting wagons this week, I came across quite a few and thought it would be a good chance to look at some sporty 5-doors. To level the playing field slightly, all are automatics. While that may cause some of you to groan, they make up for a lack of manual with distinctive styling, plenty of power and rarity that will set you apart from the crowd. Which is the one you’d choose?
