E 63 AMG S-Model Wagon Gets Tested by Edmund's

Earlier on we told you about Auto Express reviewing the not-as-special Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG S-Model Estate made for the UK. We say not-as-special because the British version of the fastest estate car in Mercedes-Benz history is only available with the rear-wheel drive traction, with the 4Matic all-wheel drive version being currently unavailable for right-hand drive markets.

Edmund's, on the other hand, didn't suffer from the same traction problems, as all E 63 AMGs for the US market – whether S-Models or standard – now have 4Matic all-wheel drive as standard.

Just like the European version, the S-Model features the M157 twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 that's been tuned to 11.

With 585 hp (577 bhp) and 800 Nm (590 lb ft) of torque that's transmitted 67% to the rear wheels and 33% to the front ones, the E 63 AMG S-Model Wagon can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standing start in just 3.7 seconds officially.

Edmund's put the model to its paces on the their track and the numbers they got are probably the best ever for a station wagon, but you should go to their website for the full test drive details.
