MotorTrend's facelifted 2014 W212 AMG S 4Matic wagon M157 V8 test numbers - Curb weight, quarter mile, 0-60, skidpad, etc.
We all already know MotorTrend had the W212 E63 S Wagon in their possession as it was featured in MotorTrend's world's greatest drivers car competition
and their World's Greatest Drag Race 3
. The wagon got the full bevy of tests though and put up some impressive numbers especially considering this is a 4703 pound vehicle. 0-60? Comes in only 3.4 seconds. The quarter mile? 11.7 seconds at 120.4 miles per hour. And the skidpad? How about a ridiculously impressive .95g.
Keep in mind this is the wagon we're talking about here. The sedan should be around 400 pounds lighter. Using the old drag racing rule of thumb that means the E63 AMG S sedan should be capable of an 11.3 second quarter mile time with a 124 mile per hour trap speed. Yes, whoa.
The 63 AMG S models are going to be a force to be reckoned with. Performance numbers below.
