Not too shabby for a wagon that can haul five people, their luggage and pretty much all their carry-able belongings in full comfort.
The 2014 E63 S-AMG has the same twin-turbocharged V8 from the regular E63, only its tuned to offer 585 hp (577 hp in American speak) and 800 Nm (590 lb ft). Along with a performance 4Matic all-wheel drive system distributing torque in a 33/67 bias between the front and the rear wheels, the understated station wagon on crack can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a dead stop in just 3.7 seconds.
Apart from a bit of unexpected understeer, easily correctable from the weight of the right foot, the car's handling provided to be surprisingly good for such a big and heavy car. Check out the somewhat oddly-edited video of the feat for yourself below.
