2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe

In my opinion, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class AMG coupe is as close as a personal jet you can on four wheels. I’ll put it up against any current offering from Bentley and Rolls-Royce and say it is better. Decade after decade, Mercedes seems to do it right with these and the prices reflect that. Funny how that works. The C217 generation that just wrapped up production raised the bar again. The example I wanted to look at today, a 2015 S63 AMG, is now a hard to believe six-years old, but still could pass as a new car. The price? Take about $100,000 off the sticker. Sounds like a deal, right? Not just yet.

Personally, I think the jump the C217 chassis from the prior C216 generation was a massive improvement. The older C216 looked a little too oversized and like a giant jelly bean, but the current generation wears its weight much better. Inside, oh boy. This interior combo with the pinstripe trim might be a little too much for some, but I think it just plays into the aurora of these flagship coupes. Under the hood, the AMG-tuned M157 that somehow got this massive coupe to 60mph in just 3.7 seconds. Even crazier, that is .4 seconds faster than the V12 S65 coupe, which was nearly $80,000 more on the window sticker.

A nearly $175,000 new price is now $80,000 almost six years later. Worth it? Honestly depends on how much more these have to give. Will these be worth $35,000 in another few years? Tough to say. These cars are getting so good that the deprecation isn’t dipping as low as we’ve seen the previous generations. Time will tell.

  1. I agree, this generation really looks great, excellent design execution from all angles. I think it is the best looking generation since the W126. Well, the W215 was really sharp as well, but the last gen W216 looked like a homage to a banana, and let’s not talk about how ugly the W140s were.

    I think you would be crazy to own such outrageous complexity out of warranty, but some people have no issue with $7K dealer service/repair visits. For them, this is one hell of a nice car to own.

  2. I have liked the looks of all of the AMG S class coupes since the 215; sleek and aggressive. They do have a steep depreciation curve like all big German sedans/coupes, which will continue until they are <$20k IMO. They are so complex to maintain and repair that the potential buyers are afraid to touch them at high prices. The people that buy these new and even CPO do not want to be seen in an "old" body style and technology improves so quickly they are not interested in yesterday's state of the art, so expect a big drop when the new S class coupe debuts. I would not touch one of these without a comprehensive warranty, even at a much lower price point.

  3. The W215 is sharp looking and the W140 is ugly? Did autocorrect just go crazy?

    I really like the car…and depreciation is your friend on expensive Mercs…but as implied by a previous commentor. Out of warranty repairs are not so friendly.
