E 63 AMG S-Model Gets Reviewed by Car and Driver

When the Mercedes-Benz E-Class W212 facelift hit the US market last year it brought quite a bit more changes that it was originally believed.

Sure, everyone talked about the all-new front end and the design changes made to the sides and the rear and of course the new ground-breaking active safety features which pretty much made the car drive itself on certain occasions.

What not many people from the Us talked about where the AMG versions, which are now more bonkers than ever.

The cherry on top is of course represented by the S-Models, which have brought supercar-level of naught to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration times to what was not long ago seen as a land barge.

The US-version of the Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG Wagon, for example, only comes in S-Model guise in the land of the free, narrowing your choices to the top of the range version.

We are talking about a 585 hp (577 bhp), 800 Nm (590 lb ft) of torque in a station wagon that can haul every member of your family to the drag strip in one go, where it can do the quarter mile in under 12 seconds. If you want to learn more about how it is to drive such an insane wagon you might want to check out Car and Driver's review of the model.
