Generally speaking, the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Wagon is no slouch. It's considerably more sporting than some full-blown sports cars, all while being able to haul the kids to soccer practice or make a quick trip to the grocery store. What if you want more, though? Well, if the E63's 577 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque aren't enough to sate your appetite for power, the team from Brabus is just a phone call away, and now the German tuning house has turned its hand to the E63 Wagon.

This might be the only 838-horsepower, 848-pound-foot car to be disappointing, although that's merely because its sedan counterpart comes to market with 850 horsepower and 1,069 lb-ft of torque. Despite these lower power figures, though, Brabus is claiming that the 850 6.0 Wagon is actually faster to 62 than the Sedan - 3.1 seconds in the long-roof and 3.5 in the four-door. Top speed is limited to 186 miles per hour.

All the extra fury is thanks to a bored-out version of the E63's 5.5-liter, biturbocharged V8. Now displacing 5.9 liters, it's been fitted with heavily revised internals and sports (naturally) larger turbochargers. Brabus tells Evo that the lower power output of the Wagon is all in the name of engine life, but if it's really faster to 60, we can't imagine owners will be all that bothered. We've got a fairly hefty gallery of images of this long-roof rocket up top, so scroll up and let us know what you think.

      Is vertical takeoff one of the AMG options?

      I think the most exciting way to experience the acceleration of this car will be from the kid seats in the trunk (the way back). Can you imagine doing 0-60 in 3.1 seconds...facing backwards!?

      Quite an economical car actually. Once you rob your first bank , blow the doors off the cops, and inconspicuously hide in a suburban parking lot, you'll get your money back.

      Dear Mercedes: why do you make wagon buyers choose between the poopy E350 and the AMG? Where's the E550 wagon option??

      The sedan counterpart you linked to is actually an S class, so an entirely different car. Also, the 1000+lbft figure in that car is also limited to 848lbft, and the power rating on the S class is the same 838bhp (850"PS", the unit of horsepower most Europeans use and about 1PS=0.986bhp). So the engine is exactly the same spec, just the E is probably sportier tuned and has AWD.

        *Stupid, no one wants it* Lucky Stars, don't speak on my behalf, ever. I do want one. If it bothers you then what are you going to do about it? Nothing!

        If nobody wanted it, Brabus would have gone out of business decades ago, they haven't.
