Would You Buy This 518 Horsepower AMG Wagon?

Today someone will be the lucky owner of this amazing E63 AMG Wagon for sale on Bring A Trailer. In the world of cars, nothing beats a fast wagon. They’re the perfect blend of performance and practicality while staying under the radar. Although fast wagons may not resonate with non-enthusiasts, fast wagons excite the people who really matter car enthusiasts. The ability to blend the cargo capacity of a wagon with the speed of a super sedan is a winning formula. The E63 AMG wagon has the V8 heart, suspension, and cargo capacity to make it the practical sports car of your dreams.

The E63 Wagon has 518 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque from its twin turbo 5.5-liter V8, therefore it’s very fast. Although we miss the massive 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 from the previous generation, the higher torque is welcome. This extra power means a 0 to 60 time of only 3.9 seconds and after 9 seconds you’ll be at 100 miles per hour. These incredible performance numbers are wrapped in an exterior fit for a family car.

Although it weighs 4510 pounds, the E63 wagon has a perfect 50/50 weight distribution. The 5.5-liter twin turbo V8 is mated to AMG’s single wet-clutch MCT seven-speed automatic transmission. It may not be as fast as its dual-clutch rivals but its good enough. Other features include a three-mode adaptive suspension and a locking rear differential. Think of all the amazing wagon burnouts you can perform.

The E63 AMG Wagon takes sleeper to a whole new level. If you ignore the rear exhaust tips it’s very hard to distinguish the AMG from its slower cousins.  Subtle fender flares and large wheels are the main exterior enhancements. The car even has the practically extinct Mercedes hood ornament for extra bug killing surface area. AMG logos are sprinkled throughout the well-appointed interior. This particular car has black leather seats that are heated and air conditioned. An AMG flat-bottomed steering wheel is the final touch or sportiness in an otherwise normal interior.

It’s hard to ignore a bright blue wagon like this. With a massive twin turbo V8 and practicality to boot, the E63 AMG wagon is a winning formula. The greatest crime in the automotive world are the low sales numbers of cars like this. Customers who buy fast cars want to be noticed and it seems wagons don’t fulfill their ego’s demands. At least someone can enjoy this amazing car second hand. Now dream with me America, somebody please buy this amazing car.
