Back at it again with a special edition that came out of nowhere, for what reason we aren’t sure. This is the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG coupe Edition 1. What is the Edition 1? Just a random name that Mercedes decided to stick on their S63 AMG coupe. Even though 2015 was the first year for the model, there were just regular 2015 S63 AMG coupes that weren’t branded the Edition 1. So what was different? Well, on the outside you got designo Magno Alanite Grey Matte finish and Swarovski crystals in the LED headlights. Inside you’ll find Aubergine red leather, carbon-fiber trim, a DINAMICA-finished headliner, and a little badge on the steering wheel. That’s it. Hope you weren’t holding out for any more power.
It’s always fun to look at those crazy fast SUV from Mercedes-AMGs past and given they’ve been pumping them out for over 20 years now, there are quite a few. However, when you happen to see one for sale that is tuned by the madmen over at Brabus, you take an extra close look. That is what I thought was going on with this 2012 ML63 AMG with the B63S Widestar kit. Someone spent a pile of money to tack on the extra bodywork and paint it, no matter how you feel about its looks. However, I was quite surprised when I looked under the hood.

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.

Oh, Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, what have you done this time? When this 2016 first caught my eye, I thought it was a gaudy vinyl wrap installed by some shop that took up residence in some old garage six months ago. However, this isn’t a vinyl wrap, this is paint straight from Mercedes-Benz. The color is called designo Desert Sand, and I give them credit, this looks like desert sand. To go even further, it has a matching desert sand interior, and they didn’t go lightly on that either. As wild as it is, the previous generation is now old news with the new G terrorizing curbs at the local mall in the nice end of town. So what happens to the values of this crazy AMG G-Wagens? Well for this specific example, it might be a little different.

A few weeks ago I came across a 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 that was extremely rare for a few reasons. First, Mercedes only produced around 100 examples for the entire world and second, it was in the United States despite never being offered for sale here. The nearly $1,700,000 price tag shocked me a little as well, but I guess that is the price you have to pay the biggest and baddest SUV on the planet. Today, I happen to run across another G63 AMG 6×6 up for sale in Florida. I thought lightning might have stuck twice having two very rare vehicles for sale in the same time, but then I noticed that this was a model year 2016. This is an important piece of information seeing as Mercedes only produced the 6×6 from 2013 until early 2015. The next step was to run the VIN to see what the data card says and compare it to the 2014. This gave me some answers as this 2016 is missing the P66, P67 and P68 options that would indicate that this is a factory 6×6. Still, I go back to the photos and see a perfect, factory-looking 6×6 that can fool anyone. I was awfully confused until one little thing tipped me off to explain everything.
