Taking the kids to a soccer game, as fast as possible.
There only approximately 200 units of the Mercedes-Benz R63 AMG ever made. That makes the Mercedes minivan pretty rare, but this particular example is a one-off, tuned to a whopping 700 horsepower (and more), making it a six-seater minivan that should be in your garage right now.
The Mercedes R63 AMG is already a class of its own. Where would you find a minivan that produces 503 hp (375 kW) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque right off the showroom, right? It was only produced in 2007 before it was withdrawn due to lackluster sales success.

There are $63,000-worth of modifications from Weistec employed in this R63 AMG, which include head studs, SLS valve-lifter buckets, intercooler and exhaust system, custom 21-inch Monoblock-style wheels, Brembo brakes, and a suspension lowering kit, among others.

We know it isn't a good time to spend on a car right now. But with a car that's as this tasty, you have to muster a lot of strength in order to refuse this one.
