Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Estate preparing to storm the supermarket
It's no secret that we – and every other automotive enthusiast on the plant – love insanely fast wagons. So it comes as no surprise that we're seriously excited to see this, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Estate, come to life.
All of the bulgy bits you see here – the front bumper, massive air intakes, wide fender flares and vented (yet camouflaged) hood – are all found on the similarly equipped C63 AMG Black Series Coupe. The only major difference here is that this wagon still sports oval exhaust pipes, rather than the squared-off ones found on the coupe, but that's an easy fix that may come into play later in the hot wagon's development.
We expect what's under the hood to be exactly the same as the two-door Black Series: Merc's naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8, massaged to the tune of 510 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. All that power will go straight to the rear wheels via the seven-speed AMG Speedshift MCT dual-clutch transmission.
Mercedes-Benz doesn't sell the standard C63 AMG Estate here in North America, so we don't expect the Black Series to touch ground here on our shores. Sad stuff, but just knowing that this beast exists somewhere in the world makes our hearts skip a few beats. See the hotness for yourself in the attached high-res image gallery.
