      The reason I'm posting this is because I spotted an R63 in NYC and I didn't realize that it was 1 of only 30 cars total in the US...

      To add to this, 2009 C63 = 2212

      Man, I didnt realize they brought over that little.. I always knew they were rare, but not that rare!

      I see on in service here at the dealer every once in a while... I would love to have one!!

      I wonder how many R63s are in Canada. I saw one in Montreal once, and there's one for sale right now in Ontario.

      The E-class AMG wagons are also very rare....

      Has anyone here driven an R63? It seems like taking a match to a 55 gallon drum of 93 octane would achieve the same outcome and be just as rewarding.

      Wow, I've never seen an R63!

      Never realized just how limited in production the AMG models are. Even CLS55s... There seem to be hundreds of them around in LA alone and yet they made less than 2800 for the US.

      I'd love to see a regional breakdown of sales. That's definitely true of LA.

      AMG's are more rare when you get away from bigger metropolitan areas, for sure.

      AMG's are crawling all over nyc, basically part of the landscape.

      Never thought much of them- not a Mercedes fan.

      I saw an R63 in Charleston. It sounded amazing. My gf couldn't understand what I was staring at.

      I saw an R63 in Boone, NC back in '09. I tried explaining how cool it was to my Mom for maybe three minutes and then threw in the towel.

      The C-class AMG nomenclature always catches me out. So bizarre the way that car has developed.

      Straight six -> Big V8 -> Blown six -> Big V8 -> Bigger V8
