Just about everything that you need to know about the AMG S 63 Cabriolet can be found in the opening paragraph of the model’s web page:

Every Mercedes-AMG is a purebred performer. Driving top-down in the 603-hp AMG S 63, the passion is even purer. The AMG vertical-bar grille leads the air to a hand-built biturbo V8 engine. The engine leads you to driving ecstasy.”

The ecstasy has a price, of course, with this one starting at $180,100.

Gee the demographics of the Classic Motorsports readers sure must have gone way up since the Rolex.

I wonder how long until it’s worth 1/10 that price? Ten years?? Fifteen???

Trust me, there are a lot of Classic Motorsports readers that buy cars like this. And yes, I wonder (out loud) how good a deal this amazing car might be in 5-10 years.

In reply to Tim Suddard :

Not much of a Mercedes fan and the design language of this new front end is just butt ugly.  Give me a 2014-15 Jag XKR or XKRS with a $600 pulley and tune and $150,000 change from what you would spend on the Mercedes and it will equal its performance with room to spare.  I can add a few other things to the collection with an extra $150K.
