As the Frankfurt Motor Show is in full swing these days, we are literally flooded with new models and concepts. Among all of these announcements, Mercedes-Benz decided to reveal the brand new E63 AMG Estate model, based on the E Class limousine.
This top-of-the-range version will be the most powerful estate in the Mercedes lineup, being fitted with the traditional 6.3 liter V8 engine, courtesy of its tuning division, AMG, which will deliver 525 HP, with a torque of 630 Nm. The engine will see a special Speedshift MCT AMG gearbox fitted to it, which will have seven speeds and take it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.6 seconds, and up to a electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h, a very uncommon figure when you consider estate cars.
Even though it will take performance to new heights, thanks to some careful tuning, the new V8 engine is even more economical than the previous generation, managing to average around 12.8 liters/100 km (18.3 mpg). Other technological improvements include a new AMG Ride Control suspension, which can be adjusted, a new set of ceramic brakes, a finer tuned steering system and a revamped ESP system, which can be turned fully on, put in sport mode, or off.
In order to reflect the sporty nature of the E63 AMG Estate, the outside has been improved by the AMG team, starting from new alloy 18-inch rims, to LED tail lights, bigger air vents, darkened head lights and some more aggressive front and rear bumpers. Another winning factor is the boot, which offers a generous 695 liters capacity, which can reach 1950 liters, if you fold the rear seats.
Overall, if you want a sporty car but with enough room for the family, then the E63 AMG Estate might be for you.
