Here Are 5 Rare AMG Cars For Sale on Autotrader

If you’re looking for a cool Mercedes-Benz, AMG is the place to go: Mercedes’ in-house tuning arm has built some very exciting and special cars over the years. But some AMG models are more exciting and special than others — and today, I’m showing you five especially unusual AMG models currently listed for sale on Autotrader. These are the AMG models for the people who think a normal E 63 or C 63 AMG is a little too plebian for their tastes.

1999 Mercedes-Benz C 43 AMG

1999 Mercedes-Benz C 43 AMG – $13,500

Before there was a C 63 AMG with a big, honkin’ V8, there was this: the C 43 AMG, with a smaller, less honkin’ V8. The C 43 AMG was sold from 1998 to 2000, in between the 6-cylinder C 36 AMG and the next-generation C 55 AMG. The C 43 is rare, and most people don’t know about it — but I always loved this subtle body style, which is far more understated than AMG models of today. The C 43 had 302 horsepower, and this one has just over 74,000 miles; it’s offered for sale by Gas MotorCars in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta, Georgia. Find a 1999 Mercedes-Benz C 43 AMG for sale

2005 Mercedes-Benz E 55 AMG Wagon

2005 Mercedes-Benz E 55 AMG Wagon – $19,999

The standard Mercedes-Benz E 55 AMG is already an unusual car, but the family-oriented E 55 AMG Wagon is even rarer, with under 200 manufactured during its 2-year production run in 2005 and 2006. This is the only one on Autotrader, which is no surprise; finding one is a tremendous challenge, with few made and even fewer coming up for sale. This one is offered by a private seller in the Atlanta suburb of Buford, Georgia, with large aftermarket wheels, 134,000 miles and an asking price of $19,999. Sadly, it doesn’t appear to have the rear-facing third-row seat that was optional (and hilarious) in these cars — an interesting feature on a 469-hp super wagon. Find a 2005 Mercedes-Benz E 55 AMG for sale

2007 Mercedes-Benz R 63 AMG

2007 Mercedes-Benz R 63 AMG – $28,900

The R63 AMG is one of the all-time rarest AMG cars, with less than 200 produced and sold for U.S. buyers. Only offered in 2007, the R 63 AMG was effectively a minivan with a giant AMG V8 boasting an amazing 502 hp and a 0-to-60 time of something like 4.4 seconds. It also boasted a massive price tag, with new examples starting at around $100,000 — huge money for a minivan, even an ultra-rare one with an AMG V8. Still, these are highly desirable on the used market, and this one is offered by a private seller in Milwaukee for $28,900. Find a 2007 Mercedes-Benz R 63 AMG for sale

2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series

2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series – $499,900

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is one of the most amazing AMG cars in existence, with razor-sharp handling and a truly amazing powertrain. But the Black Series takes things up a notch, both in terms of rarity and performance: While the standard SLS has “just” 563 hp, the Black Series touts 622 horses, making for improved acceleration. It’s also lighter than the regular SLS and much rarer, with only 132 examples coming to the United States — which helps explain the pricing. This SLS is listed for $499,900 by RBM, a Mercedes-Benz dealership in Atlanta. Find a 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG for sale

2016 Mercedes-Benz G 65 AMG

2016 Mercedes-Benz G 65 AMG – $159,454

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is generally a rare vehicle, unless you’re in the Hamptons or Beverly Hills. But the G 65 AMG is rare anywhere, mostly due to its price tag: a new G 65 AMG has an asking price of $250,000, which is massive money for any SUV. They’re apparently losing value fast, however, as this certified pre-owned model is offered by Mercedes-Benz of Pembroke Pines in Florida with just 14,000 miles for $159,454. That’s still huge money — but then again, it’s the ultimate SUV, touting a twin-turbocharged V12 with over 600 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque. Find a 2016 Mercedes-Benz G 65 AMG for sale

  1. Wow, this can’t be possible. I live in Milwaukee and have seen an R63 in that exact color, but it was not debadged on the rear and had a hood ornament (which I thought was weird). Is it possible that there are 2 of these unicorns in the exact same color in my city!?
