I've always been an enthusiast of Mercedes-Benz's high-performance AMG brand, which has made some very exciting cars since it launched the C36 AMG, the first "official" AMG model, more than 20 years ago. These days, basically everything has been "AMG-ified," with extra power and performance -- and while that's a good thing, some AMG models seem cooler to me than others. These are my five favorite AMG models currently listed for sale on Autotrader.

1999 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG -- $10,000

The C43 AMG is one of my favorite AMG cars, as it was an especially subtle early take on a fast Mercedes-Benz. While new AMG models often have big wheels and other outward signs that make their high-performance status a little too clear, the C43 had basically nothing -- except some different wheels and a very subtle body kit. Under the hood, however, was a 302-horsepower 4.3-liter V8, which was a big deal in a relatively small car like the C-Class from this era. This particular example is in nice shape, and it's offered by Dealmax Motors in Connecticut with 134,000 miles for $10,000.

2018 Mercedes-AMG E63S Wagon -- $123,325

Among AMG's newest models, I happen to think this is the ultimate choice -- except, perhaps, for the high-performance AMG GTR sports car. This is the 2018 E63S Wagon, and it's a family station wagon more than 600 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. That, of course, is absolutely absurd -- and so are the wagon's performance numbers, as it'll do 0-to-60 in 3.4 seconds. Of course, it isn't cheap: This gorgeous, brand-new black 2018 E63S Wagon is offered by Mercedes-Benz of Arcadia in the Los Angeles area for $123,325.

2013 Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG -- $42,995

The Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG is surely one of the most unusual Mercedes-Benz models, as it's a full-size, 7-seater, 3-row SUV that's been given performance tuning by AMG. Imagine, if you will, a high-performance Chevy Tahoe or Lincoln Navigator. It offers a 5.5-liter twin turbo V8 with 550 hp, and it'll do 0-to-60 in 4.8 seconds ... in a big SUV! Used GL63 models are also getting into "family car" affordable territory; this 2013 model is offered by Florida Auto Imports in Fort Lauderdale with 78,000 miles for $42,995.

2007 Mercedes-Benz R63 AMG -- $35,000

The Mercedes-Benz R63 AMG is one of the rarest vehicles in existence, as Mercedes-Benz only made a few hundred or less, all for the 2007 model year. It's certainly the rarest AMG model, and there are only two currently listed for sale on Autotrader. This one is offered by a private seller in the Houston area for $35,000, and it has the added bonus of having the head bolts upgraded -- an issue that plagued many AMG models of this era and caused engine failures. It's traveled just 98,000 miles from new, and you're unlikely to find another AMG quite like it.

2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG -- $150,950

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a bargain -- and I say this knowing full well the asking price of this model is $150,950, and that makes it the cheapest SLS Coupe on Autotrader. Yes, that's big money, but this car is an icon, with its long front hood and its gorgeous gullwing doors. More importantly, it drives phenomenally, feeling like a precise, monstrous supercar. The SLS hasn't lost much value, and I can't imagine it'll start now. This one is offered with just under 16,000 miles by Luxury Auto Leasing in the Los Angeles area.
