Pity the poor car — like the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG — that must do it all: Deliver elders of the upper class to exclusive clubs and posh eateries, and youngers to d-bag clubs and rich-guy rallies. All the while, it must perform like Walter Röhl might show up for a lap around Spa.

On his latest Drive review, Chris Harris takes the newest AMG-fired SL with the batshit performance pack — 557 hp and 664 lb-ft — around Saint Tropez to see what it's like to live with the SL63 from both sides — Luxurist and hoonigan. How well does it handle both of those demands for the cosmopolitan one-percenter?

Now, about those looks.
