Road Test Review – 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model Estate is 3.6-Second Wagon!



E63 AMG GIF Header Estate

INTERIOR GoPro Review Info - Part One

 

When it comes to the rarest of Mercedes-Benz AMG cars and trucks, the S-Models are the absolute top of the pops.

But the E63 AMG S-Model 4Matic Estate? Perhaps the ultimate in rare supercars - the S-Model Estate is certainly up there with the most-exclusive cars available.

By our estimates, fewer than 200 total S-Model E63 AMGs will come to the United States per year, which is a crying shame.

E63 AMG GIF3 Estate

The E63 Estate is just one click slower to 60-mph than the S-Model sedan. That makes this the 3.6-second wagon king.

The Estate King drives with a beautiful flow and purity, on air springs that are all things to all men: smooth as glass almost all the time, but firming up in corners automatically and in a firm base mode for the Sport Plus drive setting.

E63 AMG GIF2 Estate

The Estate King looks and sounds just as wonderful as the sedan, handles with the same care-free style, and simply makes clear that all other cars are pathetically slow the moment you nudge the throttle pedal.

Everything is suddenly in warp time - like the hour-glass has suddenly opened up completely and the sand is all in the bottom within just a few blinks of the eye.

After spending time up close with the E63 AMG 4Matic sedan in the fall, the only gripes about this car are its lack of black chrome accent in the lower bumper and sills -- and the somewhat dark color.

It appears that the S-Model drops this brightwork element in the nose in favor of a 'High-gloss black “A-wing.”'

But that is a shame to these eyes. Our test car was black in the fall, but the white car from Amelia Island is really It for me.

SUMMARY POINTS

One of the best cars ever made? Oh yes.

The quickest wagon ever sold in America? Oh yes.

Also the fastest top-end at 186-mph?

Yes indeed.

The Estate King has it all right from the AMG factory, and room for even more in the trunk.
