2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate Revealed — The World's Quickest Wagon

Written By:

The Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate has been revealed by the German carmaker ahead of its official debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The new Mercedes-AMG E63 estate is available in two guises, the standard E63 4Matic+ and the more powerful E63 S 4Matic+.

Both the regular E63 and the E63 S are powered by AMG's 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 which sends its power to all four wheels through a 9-speed automatic gearbox and Merc's 4Matic+ all-wheel-drive system.

In the E63, the engine cranks out 563bhp and 750Nm of torque while in the E63 S, the peak performance figures go up to 604bhp and 850Nm of torque.

The E63 S Estate will sprint from 0-100km/h in just 3.5 seconds (the regular E63 is a tenth of a second slower) giving it the title of the world's quickest estate car.

Both the E63 and E 63 S are electronically limited to a top speed of 250km/h. Specify the AMG Driver's package and the electronic speed nanny is removed allowing both wagons to top out at 290km/h.

The Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate features the AMG body kit which makes the new car 27mm wider than its regular estates. The flared wheel arches are used to disguise the wider track and larger front wheels of the E63 estate.

The side sills give the impression that the new E63 estate is a lot lower to the ground than it actually is At the rear the quad-exhausts, (two out of either side of the rear diffusor) have been tuned specifically for the estate.

The boot of the new E63 AMG estate has enough space for 640 litres of luggage. This can be expanded to 1,820 litres by folding down the seats.

The Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate lineup will go on sale in Europe in April 2017 and will compete with the Audi RS6.
