    The 603 horsepower twin scroll M177 AMG V8 makes the 2018 W213 E63 S wagon one badass family friendly ride

    Live in the USA and want a high performance wagon with all wheel drive and a twin turbo V8? Well, you only have one choice but fortunately it is a fantastic choice. Say hello to the 2018 Mercedes-AMG W213 E63 S with 4.0 liter M177 power.

    The engine is obviously shared with the W213 sedan and the 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque version is the highest output iteration of the engine architecture.

    It's fast. Really, really fast. How does 0-60 in 3 flat and a 1/4 mile sprint of 11.2 @ 126 sound? Impressive, right? Even more so when you see the 4700 pound curb weight.

    Damn is it heavy but damn is it impressive. It even pulls .96g on the skidpad. Absolutely nuts.

    Ok, so the big boat can move and turn but the entire package inside and out is just stunning. Mercedes hit it of the park with the styling. Who knew a wagon could look this good?

    The fact AMG sells it in the USA is just icing on the cake and frankly they deserve the business since the other German manufacturers don't have the courage to bring their high performance wagons here.

    Who needs them? This one is the best anyway. It's worth every penny.

    It looks fantastic. If I had the spare income, this is in my top 3 cars to purchase. The perfect daily.

    Not a wagon guy but I'd definitely drive this. I would need some Pure turbos on it though.
