So what makes the S-Model special? For starters, the 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 gets about 1.5 pounds more boost pressure (14.5 psi total) for 577 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, which is up from 550 hp and 531 lb-ft that the engine would make in a non-S-Model. According to Mercedes, it will hit 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and has an electronically-limited top speed of 186 mph.
There's also a limited-slip rear differential, exclusive suspension revisions with a 0.9-inch wider front track, 10-spoke titanium gray painted wheels (our test car has the optional black-painted examples) and red painted brake calipers.
All E63 AMGs are now equipped with 4Matic all-wheel drive, which is good cause it helps get the power to the ground and probably make it a better all-season vehicle with the proper tires installed for the cold months. However, there was something so cool about driving the old E63 AMG Wagon that had all the power going to just the rear-wheels.
But what a badass car this 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model Wagon is. It's sinister looking and will make you chuckle when you push the engine start button and the engine barks to life with a thunderous exhaust note. Give the right pedal a couple of jabs and the chuckles become laughs. The first expressway acceleration run with the throttle pinned brings more laughs along with amazement about what the car can do and that a company would actually build something like this.
It's not just straight line lunacy here, though. Nope, the AMG adaptive sport suspension keeps things nice and tidy around corners when you take corners and the sport plus mode is used. Steering feels good for a Mercedes with sharp turn-in response while the generously bolstered front AMG seats hold you tightly in place. As Andy mentioned, it would be interesting to see how well this would do around a road course like GingerMan Raceway. I gladly volunteer to go find out.
When you're not bombing around on your way back from the grocery store, you can punch up the suspension's comfort mode and just cruise in relative comfort on the low-profile 19-inch tires. Don't expect a Lexus ride quality, but it's relaxing enough.
With BMW not selling a 5-series wagon or Audi bringing an A6 Avant over to the U.S. anymore, it is Mercedes catering to midsize wagon lovers with the E-class wagons. That they build an AMG version of it is more reason to be thankful to them.
I guess I have to agree with a lot of my colleagues above: this would be the car for me if I could only have one car and had a lot of disposable income.
