    • Ultimate AMG sleeper - Weistec Stage 2 supercharged R63 AMG M156 minivan

      Remember the W251 R-Class? Not many people do. Mercedes-Benz built a minivan or MPV. As SUV's get all the attention in the US the R-Class was overlooked. Mercedes-Benz built the R-Class in the USA and one day decided, why not let AMG have a crack it?


      And so the R63 AMG 4Matic was born with M156 6.2 liter V8 power. It is such an absurd move that it makes the R63 so damn cool and so damn rare. The R63 debuted as a 2007 model.


      Low sales figures meant that the van was only around for one year. People simply did not know what a beast this van was and AMG did not help things by not advertising it. Still, BenzBoost is thankful they built it.

      Someone with an R63 decided it needed more punch and so Weistec came to the rescue. This R63 features Weistec's Stage 2 supercharger system. That means a 2.3 liter 50-state legal twin screw blower good for 500+ horsepower to all four wheels.

      Badass? Sleeper? Yes indeed. It's too bad the R63 AMG did not get the appreciation it deserved but if you want one, this one is for sale: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/20...benz-r63-27-2/

        Very cool. That engine bay looks like it would be a nightmare to work in though.
