Mercedes-AMG E63S Estate Goes For All-Black Look With Satin Bronze Wheels

Despite this massive spike in SUV sales within the last few years, station wagons are still an excellent choice for those who want a roomy family car – and, possibly, are tired of all this crossover rage.

At the top of the pyramid sit power wagons such as the Audi RS6, or this, the flagship AMG E63S version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate. Given its horsepower and overall performance figures, one could even make a case for it as being the greatest family car in the world.

So then, what can you do to improve on its already bold looks? Opting for a black exterior is a good start. Then you can add tinted windows and maybe even a set of contrasting wheels, like these 21-inch Vossen M-X2s with a Satin Bronze finish.

Regardless of whether you like the looks of this E63S or not, there’s no denying its performance credentials. Its 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 puts out 612 PS (604 HP) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque. Mix that up with the 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system and the nine-speed Speedshift automatic and you’ll be doing the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in just 3.5 seconds.

If you want faster acceleration times in an estate car, you might as well convert a Tesla saloon into a Shooting Brake – otherwise, there’s no stock station wagon out there that can challenge the E63S Estate in a straight line.
