While it seems like the majority of the world has switched to SUVs in order to haul around as much empty air as possible, I’m here to cheer on the legacy of the full-size touring coupe. Especially those from Mercedes-AMG. Make no mistake, Mercedes wouldn’t produce these cars if there wasn’t a market for them, especially when the base S550 coupe started at well over $100,000. That number got even crazier when you consider the S65 AMG coupe started at $242,000 without options and regularly sold well north of $250,000.
Today, we have the younger brother S63 AMG coupe with the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 with 603 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Starting price? $170,000. A real bargain considering these go face-to-face with the Bentley Continental GT and even the Rolls-Royce Wraith. That’s even true if they are still listed for around sticker price like this one up for sale in Texas is.

This is all I really need in my life. I recently drove a 2019 S550 4Matic coupe and I fell hard for it. Despite just being the S550, I thought it was outstanding in the way it drove and the total package it offered. The beautiful thing about the S-Class is you rarely if ever see cost-cutting measures in the interior. Nothing is held back in terms of materials or technology. They are produced to be the best effort, within reason of course, and only turn the dial up on performance when handing them over to AMG.
This car is a wonderful combo of Obsidian Black Metallic with designo Saddle Brown upholstery, which I love. However, the asking price with just under 16,000 miles is something I don’t love. It seems like the insane depreciation we are used to seeing with these AMG cars is probably gone for the time being. I don’t think the days of snagging a $220,000 CL65 AMG for $35,000 are ever going to be seen again. These cars are way too good and just have too much demand given their volume. I think these one does have room to come down under $100,000, but my dream of snagging these cheap probably will never come true.
