Only 200 units of Mercedes R63 AMG were made before it was discontinued in 2007. It was produced just for one model year. However, a car enthusiast has woven his magic on the ride and made it far more capable than it originally was. CarSwitch.com, an online marketplace that can help you buy a certified used Mercedes in UAE, did some research to share the details with you.
700-HP Mercedes R63 AMG Engine And Performance
The original car could develop 503 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. The tuned unit can produce 700 horsepower and is the fastest minivan ever.
In their two years of ownership, the seller fitted the 6.2L V8 with a Weistec Engineering Stage 2 supercharger kit, and this is what added 200 hp to its power output. Power is delivered to all four wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission. The underbody panels, heat shielding, and subframe were disassembled, cleaned, and inspected when the engine was removed. The factory components such as the exhaust mid-section and original wheels are a part of the modified model.

The 2007 R63 AMG was on sale at Bring A Trailer a while back and it boasts modifications worth $63,000 including SLS valve-lifter buckets, head studs, custom 21-inch Monoblock-style wheels, intercooler and exhaust system, a suspension lowering kit, and Brembo brakes among other things. The wheels were designed using a 3D scan of original AMG Monoblock wheels and they are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Supersport tires.
The body of the vehicle is finished in black and optional factory rear fender lip flares have also been added. The windshield and grille have apparently been replaced and the seller filled the front license plate mounting holes. The bumper was also disassembled and repainted.

On the inside, the seats of the car, which come with heating and power adjustment options, are crafted with black leather. Depending on the options you choose, the cabin also features rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, Distronic cruise control, three-zone climate control, Keyless Go, Bluetooth, and dual electric sunroofs.
The six-passenger configuration can be converted to four or two seats depending on cargo space needs. The two seats at the back fold flush to allow for a flat load floor. The center seats also fold flat to the rear of the front seats.
The refined version had a California title and clean Carfax report, which means it was never involved in an accident. It was offered with service records, a window sticker, an oil analysis, and factory books and manuals.
