Following the massive success of the R230 platform, the R231 had big shoes to fill and limited tools to best its predecessor. While the model line offered underpowered 400-series SLs, the madmen at AMG fortunately offered not only the SL63 hot-rod roadster but, as here, the ultra-desirable P30 Performance Package variant. Packed with a raised factory rated engine output of 557 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque, an increased electronically-limited top speed of 186mph, and a carbon-fiber engine cover, this ultimate SL63 version offered true enthusiast performance in a hardtop convertible package that could provide daily duty as well as track treatment. This example is finished in a timeless yet sinister color combination with the looks, performance, and growl to back it up. Compared to the whopping original MSRP on this car less than a decade ago, the chance to snag one of these droptop monsters at a fraction of their original price is too good to pass up. Grab this one now before appreciation sets in.
