A very rare Mercedes R63 AMG is for sale

A copy of one of the most desirable sports minivans, the Mercedes R63 AMG is for sale. Produced in 200 copies during the year 2007 alone, this thunder of war carried a 6.2 V8 of 510 horsepower.

With such a mill and despite its 2.2 tonnes, the R63 0 to 100 km/h in five secondsfor a maximum speed (electronically limited) of 275 km/h.
