In the wide scope of crazy vehicles manufactured by Mercedes-Benz's tuning arm, AMG, none have ever been crazier than this one: the R63 AMG. For those of you who don't know this car, we recently ran a feature on it. For those of you who want it summed up succinctly, well... it's a 500-horsepower minivan.

Not only is the R63 AMG a 500-horsepower minivan, but it's one of the rarest Mercedes-Benz vehicles -- in fact, one of the rarest vehicles, period -- in modern times. Some sources say around 50 total were built, while others have numbers in the 30s and the 70s -- but there's little doubt that fewer than 100 of these things are running around across the entire United States, and only a handful more if you extend things globally. And now this one is for sale.

Admittedly, it isn't cheap: This is a 10-year-old Mercedes with 126,000 miles and an asking price of $49,500. But the simple truth is you'll probably never find another one. I've looked long and hard for an R63 AMG to feature here on Autotrader Find, and this recently listed example is the only one I've seen on Autotrader since we launched Oversteer nearly six months ago.

So what exactly are the particulars? This one is listed by a private seller in Irvine, California, which is between Los Angeles and San Diego. It has a black exterior and a black interior, and the seller notes that over $7,000 was recently spent on the suspension, brakes and tires. Of course, like all R63 AMGs, it also has minivan styling, seating for six, and a 507-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 that will send it from zero to 60 in around 4.6 seconds.

In a minivan.

It might just be the coolest minivan ever made.
