2014 Porsche 911 GT3

Do you want want a Porsche 911 R but can’t swing the $300,000 price tag? Well, I may have a solution for you. Back when the 911 R fever was at an all-time high and people were playing truly insane prices for them, someone had the idea to option a standard 991.1 GT3 exactly how a 911 R looks. Notice I said looks, because the 911 R had a lot of very special pieces like a magnesium roof, carbon-fiber decklids front and rear, and carbon-fiber front fenders. While that doesn’t seem like a big deal, the lack of the 4.0-liter and six-speed manual is a much bigger deal given that wasn’t available yet on the GT3. Imagine the day the person who owns this car was having when Porsche announced the GT3 Touring.

2014 Porsche 911 GT3

Would you believe me if I told you that the 991.1 Porsche 911 GT3 had an engine warranty for 10 years or 120,000 miles? Well, it’s true. In one of Porsche’s rare screw-ups (in addition to that whole IMS thing), the engines in the 991.1 GT3 had a metallurgical defect in certain batches of pivoting rocker arms in the valvetrain. This led to misfires at high RPMs and thus, very unhappy customers who spent $135,000 plus another $40,000 in options. If for some reason your engine does fail, Porsche will drop in a new updated engine, no questions asked. You can probably put two and two together and figure out why I am bringing this up. This 2014 up for sale in Colorado just happens to have a fresh updated engine installed in it with just 2,300 miles despite the car having almost 18,000 miles. Not only that, this car has something else that makes it probably the cheapest 991 GT3 out there for sale on the market right now. Let me explain:

2014 Mercedes-Benz G500 Cabriolet Final Edition 200

To commemorate the end of the G-Class Cabriolet production, Mercedes-Benz decided to make a special version called the ”Final Edition 200” that was slated to be ultimate G cabriolet. They grabbed the wheels from the G63/G65, put some fancy leather work inside, added a some badges, and pitched it to all their best buyers. All 200 sold out before production even started, and those buyers probably weren’t too happy to hear a few years later that this wasn’t the end of the G cabriolet run thanks to the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet. Granted, this was the last two-door G Cabrio, but still. Today, one of the 200 is up for sale Miami thanks to some federalization help from Europa International. However, this price on this G probably isn’t what you would guess. Are you sitting down?

Ralph Lauren’s 2014 Porsche 911 GT3

Legendary fashion designer Ralph Lauren is no small time car collector. In fact, his collection ranks up there with the very best in terms of quality and his stunning way to showcase some of them. He doesn’t show them off all that frequently, but when he goes, he usually goes big. His Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic is nearly priceless, but some have estimated it to be worth north of $40mil. Even with his extreme wealth, he isn’t taking it out for a drive on a Tuesday afternoon. He has other cars for that. Some of those cars are Porsches, and more specifically, Porsche GT cars. He has been spotted in a 997 GT3 RS and GT3 RS 4.0, so it shouldn’t surprise you at what we are looking at today.

This 2014 991 GT3 was reportedly purchased new by Lauren and enjoyed before being traded in on a 991 GT3 RS Weissach Package. An understandable upgrade to say the least. The normally silver or black wheels were painted white to give the car an exceedingly clean look when finished off with the clear taillights. Now the car is for sale Porsche Atlanta Perimeter and kudos to them for not trying to cash in on the celebrity ownership. Heck, they don’t even mention that it was his car.

Feature Listing: 2014 Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition

Porsche has never been one to shy away from offering a special edition of any of their cars, and that goes double for the 911. It seems as though virtually every few months some new, ultra-limited variant of the GT3, GT2 or Turbo comes splashing into the news feeds and headlines of every German car enthusiast. But occasionally, Porsche does have something important to commemorate, and when it came to 2014 they had a particularly impressive opportunity.

2014 marked the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911, a car so entrenched in the ethos of sporting automobiles that it’s the mechanical equivalent of the Queen of England. Sure, the 911 hasn’t always been the best, brightest or fastest – but, it’s seemingly always been there and often it has been the superlative. So to celebrate 50 years of production, Porsche introduced a very beautiful and pure example of the 911, devoid of the flash and spoilers that often catch headlines.

Subtle was the key to the 911 50th. It was rear-drive, yet had the wide body from the Carrera 4S. It was lowered 10mm like the GTS, and had different black/chrome accents both front and rear. It wore a variation on the theme of the 2010 Sport Classic’s Fuchs-inspired wheels, here with a machined with black accent finish. Inside a choice of special houndstooth or tartan on the seats, with original 901-inspired gauges and the choice between the excellent PDK dual-clutch 7-speed or a 7-speed manual. Porsche’s Powerkit bumped power up to 430 for good measure, and the outside was draped in Graphite Gray Metallic or the even more gorgeous Geyser Grey Metallic seen here. It made for one stunning package:

2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6

If you can remember from a few weeks ago I took a deep dive into a 1999 Mercedes-Benz G500 that was transformed by a couple of guys in a garage in Western Ukraine into a pretty damn good recreation of a 6×6. I am still trying to figure out how they pulled it off so well because it isn’t like you can go grab a spare 6×6 body from the parts counter at your local Mercedes-Benz dealer and Mercedes isn’t giving out technical sheets for a vehicle they built less than 100 of. Nonetheless, the price was actually pretty fair seeing how much work was put into and of course, how much a real 6×6 will run you. Luck would have it that I found a real 2014 G63 AMG 6×6 up for sale in Arizona with just a few thousand miles on the odometer. The price? Are you sitting down?

2014 Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG

What is made in Alabama, seats seven, has 536 horsepower, weighs 5,800 pounds and does 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds? The Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG, of course! When little Cooper is late for soccer practice and Katilyn late for cheerleading, supermom Debbie can throw them in the GL63 AMG and cruise to an electronically-limited 155 mph to make up time all while hauling a living room set from the Pottery Barn in the rear. This is a monster of a machine that can basically do everything and then some. Does that mean everyone bought them? No. Mercedes said just two percent of GL buyers opted for the GL63 and I’m sure that had a lot to do with the $121,000 price tag. Now that these X166s are a few years old and therefore heavily depreciated, does it make sense to scoop one up? Lets find out.

2014 BMW X1 xDrive35i M Sport

Do not adjust your screen. This is not a test. Yes, a BMW X1 is appearing on these pages. But, please stick with me because I’ll explain why.

When the X1 arrived, I – probably like you – considered it a bit of an affront to the brand. Following in the footsteps of the mission-drift but popular X5 and X3 models, the X1 made a fair amount of sense from a marketing standpoint. For about the same money as a loaded Subaru Outback, you could get an (arguably) better looking and performing BMW, after all. So the X1 opened BMW up to a whole new market as the least expensive option in their catalog.

I’ll admit, when they arrived I even went and drove one with my wife. We were considering replacing her…yup, Subaru Outback, and since the Outback’s build quality had proven so abysmal it was hard to get on board with throwing $30,000 at one. But for about two grand more, you could get into a basic X1 xDrive28i, and it really was a nicer car in just about every way.

We didn’t go down that route, as it turned out, for better or worse. And four years on, I’m not sure that the first generation X1 aged all that well. It received an update in the 2012 model year which made it slightly more slick-looking, but the proportions are still fairly awkward. So why is it here? Because it was also one of the best BMWs you could buy.

Underneath the rather upright body was the chassis borrowed more or less straight from the E91 Sport Wagon. But the E84 X1 had a few trumps over the 328i. Like the E91, you had two engine choices. “28i” models got the N20 turbo four rated at a pretty amazing 241 horsepower with 258 lb.ft of torque, or you could get what you see here. In the “35i” there was a N55 turbocharged inline-6 with 300 horsepower and 300 lb.ft of torque at the same time that engine choice wasn’t an option for the wagon fans. So if you wanted a fast BMW wagon, here it is:

Dolomite Brown 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 S AMG Estate

I never tire of rare and unique colors. Combine that with a rare and unique vehicle? Even better. This is a 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 S AMG Estate in the color Dolomite Brown Metallic. Sometimes it looks brown, sometimes it looks purple and even at the right light you might even mistake it for a burnt orange. Either way, I love the color. But I don’t exactly love it on this car. Let me explain why.

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.

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.
