I don’t feature a lot of newer AMG cars. It usually takes a really special example of what is already a special car for me to take a second look. What we have today is one of those cars. This 2012 E63 AMG for sale in California takes an already extremely fast W212 and adds a little extra power with some special options. So let’s take a look at what this Affalterbach rocket has to offer.

Willing to have car completely gone thru at your mechanic or a local MB dealer.
We’ll get the basic facts out of the way first. The P30 Performance Package pumped the power up to 550 horsepower and 590 ft-lb of torque that can get you to 60 mph is just 3.8 seconds. But we already knew this thing is really fast. It’s the options I came for. Start with the Carbon Ceramic brakes that cost $12,625. That is literally more than I paid for my entire E55 AMG when I bought it. Add in the 19-inch wheels and Night View for almost $1,800 each, throw in the LSD for another $2,000, tack on the panoramic sunroof for $1,100 and we still have many thousands of dollars to go. The P30 Package was $7,300, the Driver Assistant Package ran you $2,950 and the best option of this car, the Designo Mystic Red Leather was $3,100. The Mystic Red Leather isn’t as red as you think but more of a mulberry which I think looks excellent. Now getting back to the adding machine, the little paper slip says this car has a total of $36,085 worth of options. That means you could of purchased this car for a grand total of $124,685 or a lightly optioned E63 and a new CLA250, also with very few options.
So what does this car cost now? $60,000. Yes, this car is 50% off after only four years and 48,000 miles. It’s not like this thing is trashed, actually it’s on the complete opposite end of that being nearly perfect. Yes, I know the old ”if you can’t afford it new, you can’t afford it used” saying but chance are if you can afford a $60,000 car you can probably swing the maintenance and repairs on this car outside of any brake work which then I suggest you finding a nice cardboard box to live in because you sold your house to pay for nearly 16-inch two piece rotors or God forbid the six piston calipers.
I realize car people face this kind of dilemma every time they look at cars. Does one pick a brand new for car $xx,xxx or a few year old car that has extreme value for around the same price but unknown reliability and longevity. But cars are getting better everyday and so are the resources to care for them. This might be an option if you want a nearly perfect package for not a ton of money.
