Needless to say that the AMG roadster is beyond salvageable. The fire destroyed literally everything, and if it wasn’t for the easily-recognizable rear three-quarter design, then it would have been almost impossible to tell what ride this was just by looking at the pics.

When it left the factory floor, it was finished in white and had a twin turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 engine under that long hood, capable of pumping out 577 HP (585 PS / 430 kW), at 5,500 rpm, and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque, at 2,250-3,750 rpm. Mercedes-AMG claimed that the nought to 62 mph (0-100 kph) is dealt with in 4.1 seconds, and flat out, it could do 155 mph (250 kph).
U.S. pricing used to start at more than $150,000, while in Germany, the 2017 SL 63 retailed for over €160,000.
