To me, this would be a very simple decision: Get the new SL450. What in the frigging world will you do with the 63? If you are like probably 99.8% of SL63 owners, you will NOT take it to the track. So, where does that leave you with your ridiculously overpowered toy? Well, I guess you can stomp on it on long freeway on-ramps, but other than that, if you use all that torque & horsepower on the street, you will probably just get in trouble, TRYING to blow the doors off of a new Corvette--and probably getting beat!
In addition, with a 2013 vs. a 2017, the factory warranty should be VERY important to you, depending on how long you plan on keeping the car. For me, it would be the magnificent SL450, all day long over the boy racer 63. You want to go fast, get an AMG GT--or a Porsche! The SL, was built to be a luxury cruiser, not a race car.
