2019 Mercedes-AMG GT R

What do a Mercedes-AMG GT R, the red pig, and Ferris wheels all have in common? Let me try to explain. This 2018 AMG GT R up for sale in Düsseldorf pays tribute to the 1971 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.8 AMG that ran at the 1971 24-hour race at Spa. What does that have to do with Ferris wheels? Apparently, there were 5 of these tributes produced by design company Bussink. Who is Bussink? They are a leading designer of giant Ferris wheels and similar structures for over 25 years and produced more than 60 giant wheels. I guess they got a little bored of designing Ferris wheels are now they are doing engineering and design work on Mercedes-Benz with their blessing. Can’t say I blame them. Now one of these is up for sale to the public and oh boy is it expensive. I was not prepared for this price.

2019 Mercedes-Maybach S650

A few weeks ago I took a look at the former king of the Mercedes-Benz chauffer cars, the Maybach 62S. Back when it hit the scene in the early 2000s, it rivaled everything on the road of terms of executive ground transpiration and certainly had the price tag to match. However, now that 20 years have passed, it isn’t so impressive anymore other than it being a look back into the time and doing the math at how much value they have lost. When Mercedes brought back the Maybach name as a sub-brand in 2015, it certainly made more sense to have them positioned as a trim level of the S-Class, rather than trying to pitch them as an entirely new brand. Wouldn’t you know, it fared much better and certainly kept production costs down as the majority of the changes were just to the rear seating and some various trim pieces. In typical S-Class fashion, it followed a heavy depreciation after the first few years but still offers great value if you want to go that route. This 2019 up for sale in Texas offers you a $50,000 discount if you’d like roll around in a previous generation car. Would anyone even notice?

2019 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe

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.

2019 Porsche 911 Turbo S

I’m a mega-fan of everything green on cars. Even the wilder shades of green I’m all for, but I feel like they have their place on certain cars. Today’s car, a 2019 Porsche 911 Turbo S, is finished in paint-to-sample Olive Green and has nearly $35,000 in other options for a giant sticker price of $233,255. However, I don’t know if I am in love with this one – let me explain why:

2019 Porsche 911 Speedster

One thing I didn’t see coming was how popular the 991 Speedster would be and what it would do to their values. Even with them producing 1,943 examples for the world, most are still trading at around sticker price or slightly more. That is a big deal considering the base price was $275,000 and most were optioned out heavily to over $300,000 and then some. That is a lot of money for basically a GT3 with the roof cut off and some nasty blind spots when the fabric roof is folded up. Still, these are hot and people are gladly paying.

This example up for sale in Chicago is finished in one of my favorite colors, Amethyst Metallic, which is a very deep purple color that can pass as black in anything less than direct light. It is the perfect way to have a nice color, but not scream it like some of the other purples or Rubystone offers. The privilege having this paint-to-sample shade ran a cool $12,830, but when you are paying $300,000 for a car, what is another $13,000? This one actually has 2,600 miles on it, but that doesn’t mean you are getting a good deal. Nope, not a good deal at all.
