Fantastically Fast Family Haulers

Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon
In addition to its typical family-car abilities, the E 63 S Wagon hints that it’s something a bit more extraordinary. Up front a large grille gets flanked by sleek LED headlights and large air intakes. Bulging fender flares give the wagon a wide, aggressive stance, and a quad exhaust at the rear are subtle signs of this sleek wagon’s capabilities. Also telling are 20-inch alloy wheels, massive brakes and red AMG calipers. The E 63 S Wagon’s brakes are not ornamental, they are definitely vital; under the sculpted hood lurks a hand-built 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 engine that generates 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque — enough power to sprint to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph. Not only will the E63 S Wagon get the family where it needs to be quickly, if kids are causing trouble in the back seat one exuberant stomp of the throttle from a stoplight would immediately grab the attention of squabbling siblings — and anyone else within earshot, for that matter.
