To some, the idea of sticking a huge engine in a family wagon seems redundant, your kids will get sick on the way to school, your wife will divorce you and you’ll be left alone in your expensive station wagon thinking; ‘was it worth it?’ On the other hand, we believe ridiculously fast station wagons like this Mercedes C63 AMG are the ideal compromise, they can be sedate and docile at city cruising speeds, then, when the mood strikes you and the road opens up, you can unleash the V8 Monster lurking under the bonnet.
With 336kW/600Nm available from the brutal 6.2L naturally aspirated V8, the deceptively stately looking C63 AMG Estate will accelerate to 100km/h in 4.4sec and continue on to an electronically limited top speed of 280km/h. To put that performance into perspective, this wagon will carry five adults and their luggage in supreme comfort and out sprint a 2001 Ferrari 360 coupe to the speed limit.
Reflected in the modest number of units sold, the C63 Estate didn’t make sense to all buyers. With less than 10 examples currently available for sale in Australia, compared to more than 100 of the sedan body shape, opting for the estate will put you in the company of performance minded parents and wagon connoisseurs.
