      I TCL so much. It's amazing stories like these that don't disappear hours later into the abyss that members on other media platforms miss out on.

      Looking through the pricing guide:

      Premium Package 2 - $5,000
      Drivers Assistance Pack - $2,950
      AMG Performance Pack - $6,990
      AMG Carbon Ceramic Braking System - $12,625
      Limited Slip Differential - $2,030
      AMG Twin 5-spoke Forged Alloy Wheel - $1,790
      Premium Leather Upgrade - $1,370

      There's a few things I can't tell if they're optioned, like Night View Assist Plus and the Rear Seat Entertainment System. I'm guessing that you have to pay for the premium leather upgrade before you even hit the designo program as well.

      designo customization - $55,000

      Curious if it was Mr. Barker or Mr. Tysinger who owned the car?

      Here is a cell shot of the build sheet. The Designo customization was $48k. My buddy who worked for MB is working on getting me the full build sheet and hopefully the window sticker. I am also including some shots of it being done at the AMG factory.

      They took a complete E63 new and sent it to the AMG factory where all the special cars are built and removed everything to put the all new stuff in. He told me all about the process and pointed out some stuff he had never even seen before like the alcantara rear view.

      I took some more photos of the car this morning too.

The rear bumper was already perfectly resprayed due to a scratch.
      Amazing pickup, but the above upsets me. The Stagea must be built.

      Interesting listing. Listed price $29,000. But if you use their financing for 60 months total payments are $45,240

      Nice low low interest rate

      Only if its a AND kind of thing, not an OR.



      That interior is dream worthy. The headliner makes me feel some type of way.

      All I can think of is this meme I saw last week on IG when I think about this car. I'd be out there a lot longer than 15 minutes though after seeing your pictures.



      Impressive spec sheet.

      Very cool car!! The only thing that irks me is the yellow calipers on the camel? interior. Otherwise, it's gorgeous.

      x2, also sad to see the DR30 go - that was an amazing example of that generation.

      Amazing car, wow.

      Personally I don't get the point of buying a car that is truly 1 of 1, is literally famous, that you surely had to pay a hefty premium on only to turn around and modify it, reversible mods or not. But that's not me.

      That being said, you do awesome stuff with the cars you pick up. Stuff that the majority of us can only just sit back and drool over and I can't wait to see what you do with it.

      Yeah but I bought this car for me not for resale.

      Yellow calipers are my favorite. I was amazed it had them because they are always yellow. Gold would probably look better but im definitely keeping the yellow.

      I heard of this car before but I thought it was an urban legend. Rumor of this car made the rounds on MB World forum many years ago when some guy claimed he knew someone with a $200k E63 and people thought he was full of it. But seeing is believing...

      Are you seriously going to mod this car?

      If the wheels I think are going on actually do, there will be 2 camps. One will be a burning world, and I will be in the other. SO PUMPED to see it happen.

      That is extremely cool. I’ve always wanted an AMG wagon.
