2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon Render Matches Spied Prototypes, Shows Game Changer

The kind of suit-and-tie-confined power that surrounds a presidential figure - this is what comes to mind when we think of the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63. And since presidents are family men, the 2018 E63 Wagon seems to make full sense.

Now that the sedan has been presented, we got a bit power greedy and all we can think of is the upcoming T-Modell. We're sure many of you are eagerly expecting the dog hauler too, which is why we've brought along a rendering.

Coming from digital artist X-Tomi, the pixel rearrangement seems to match the spied 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon prototypes, packing all the dissimulated firepower you can think of. Except the render isn't... 100 percent as wild as what we've seen in the spyshots.

No, really, the spied prototypes are simply out of this world. That's because they fat wheel arches and the uber-generous ground clearance we've seen in the spy material point out to an aggression and practicality boost that, if translated into the production car, will make the Wagon even spicier than the four-door model.

The dark corners of the rumor mill have even gone as far as speculating that Affalterbach is preparing to gift the world with a Black Series Estate. As much as we'd love to see that happening, the coupe-only form of all Black Series machines we've seen so far makes us doubt the possibility.

Another wild theory has to do with AMG preparing to massage the E-Class All-Terrain. After all, Mercedes-Benz's go-fast arm does the E63 and its also does plenty of SUVs, so this could actually happen.

Even if none of the projects mentioned above happen to get the production green light and we end up with the T-Modell version of the E63 we've already met, we still can't call this "normal", which is awesome.

Why? Well, it's enough to look at the performance numbers of the Sedan to understand these Germans are on a velocity crusade. While the 571 PS and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) E63 4Matic+ can play the 0-62 mph game in 3.5 seconds, the E63 S 4Matic+, which makes use of 612 PS and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of twist only needs 3.4 seconds for the task. AWD advantage or not, this makes it 0.2s quicker to the benchmark speed than the Mercedes-AMG GT R. Heck, given the kind of bullying the E63 prototype did earlier this year during its Nurburgring testing, perhaps it should get the Beast of the Green Hell label just like the GT R.

Add the hefty luggage compartment of the T-Modell, hope for the S model's Drift Mode, which makes the car 100% RWD and you'll get why we're so excited about the upcoming Wagon - here's a video of the spied hauler for you.
