Round right here we admire the absurd, particularly when that absurdity pertains to dropping a hearth respiratory 6.2-liter AMG V-8 right into a not-quite-a-minivan. Again in 2007, Mercedes was doing the essential work of catering to oldsters embattled in Quick and Livid type stop-light drag races throughout their morning commutes. Therefore the 2007 Mercedes-Benz R63 AMG.
Someplace within the ballpark of 200 R63 AMGs had been produced globally over its single manufacturing yr, with 108 allegedly making it to the U.S. Of the 108 fashions that made it right here, we imagine solely two had been completed on this head-turning Barolo Crimson Metallic paint. This one is now up for public sale on Convey a Trailer, which—like Automotive and Driver—is a part of Hearst Autos.
Once they made it, Mercedes didn’t need to affiliate themselves with minivans, opting as an alternative to designate the R63 as a “sports activities tourer.” No matter its classification, the R63 runs to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and on to a prime velocity of 155 mph. It comes with all-wheel drive, a panoramic sunroof, a leather-based inside, heated entrance and rear seats, and a rear leisure system, making it a form of luxury-van/GT automotive concoction. That is all fairly spectacular for a 15-year-old automobile, even one which began simply shy of $90,000 new. All that energy and magnificence leads to an ideal package deal to depart any rival booster membership members in your mud and present them why you bought elected booster membership treasurer.
