People flock to SUVs because they want space but estates are oh-so-very-boring, right? For the most part, yes, but there are some exceptions, which almost always seem to wear an AMG or RS badge.
By combining the best out of two worlds, that is supercar-like performance and plenty of room inside for the entire family, the latest Mercedes-AMG E63 S Estate has become one of the leaders in the executive segment.
And for very good reasons: like 612 PS (604 HP / 450 kW) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque. This should be enough for most enthusiasts to take to the track or go supercar hunting after the school run. With 3.5 seconds for the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) spring and an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), we probably would be tempted to engage in such endeavors occasionally with Merc’s super estate.
Check the AMG Driver’s Package from the options list, like the owner of the car filmed below, and see the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Estate’s v-max hit 300 km/h (186 mph). Surely, there aren’t many places in the world where one would actually reach this insane speed legally, but luckily, Germany’s Autobahn still has some no-speed-limit sections – and that’s where enthusiasts often film themselves testing cars to the limit.
So, without further ado, get ready to watch Affalterbach’s super wagon nudge its ludicrous, for a family estate, top speed in the video that follows.
