Almost exactly a year ago I took a look at the 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT63 that was just hitting dealer lots. The standard GT63, if you can even call it “standard”, is a bonkers of car that does 0-60 in 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 193 mph. In typical Mercedes fashion, they had it turn the dial up to 11 and release a GT63 S, which means this fairly standard looking four door sedan, I mean coupe, now gets to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and can hit 195 mph. I know, what a dilemma to pick between the two. However, there is another reason to pick the GT63 S: the wheels! These are the 21″ Monoblocks I was raving about last week and now they are available on the GT63 S. How much? This or a new Mercedes-Maybach S560?

Seriously, this car is a $188,000. I would pay a lot of money to sit down with the fine people are Mercedes who product plan all their models and ask them exactly what kind of buyer they envision for this car. The E63 S starts at $107,000, while the S65 starts at $152,000. You have to guess those are two group of buyers who are in the market for one of these, but are they going to pony up tens of thousands of more? Even the 2020 BMW M5 Competition starts at $110,000. However, I do think there is one car that Mercedes is competing directly with on this one, the 2020 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.
In terms of specs, they are nearly identical. However, if you want the top of the line Turbo S E-Hybird, that will run you a little over $200,000. Also I wouldn’t take it lightly that the Porsche is a part-time Hybird, while the GT 63 S is a traditional twin-turbo V8. They are going to offer a different feel, and of course sound if you are big on that kind of thing. So basically Mercedes and Porsche have an ultra-niche class of cars that are targeted towards a handful buyers at best that are willing to spend $200,000 on a car. And they say we are headed for a recession?
This car generates absolutely zero emotional interest from me.
Fast and butt ugly. I would take an E63 over this regardless of price.
Given the current world backdrop, what’s the over / under on number of days this sits on the lot at good old MB of Scarborough?
well the choice is between living indoors, how common, or in a sedan, er coupe… the wheels are nice but the foundation of a house is much harder to steal although the house may already be up on cinder blocks… the price is a great deal compared to say a buggati which has much nicer wheels and the glass roof, i mean: fixed panorama roof is a deal breaker, i mean who wants to be exposed to those nosy drones everywhere these days? the black actual coupe from a few years ago seems a better deal…
I may be in the minority, but I don’t like the wheels.
E63 Wagon is so much cooler, and you can get one well optioned for 50k less than this thing. Plus, I bet it will hold its value better too. This thing is going to drop in value like a stone.
I have to imagine this was custom ordered and didn’t sell for some reason.
I too dislike the wheels — I dislike all ‘roid rage aesthetics when they are applied to German cars. The paint reminds me of in 1984 when dad bought mom the very first on the lot Chrysler minivan. It was medium blue metallic clearcoat. She washed it on the second day with pride, and with steel wool pads. She is a farm girl and had no idea.
