I recently had the chance to drive a 577-horsepower station wagon. I think you would agree that chances like these aren't to be turned away. Instead, you accept them head-on, with full force, assuming that someone else is paying for gas.
My opportunity to drive the 2014 Mercedes E63 AMG station wagon came from the Mercedes-Benz press office, a kind group of individuals who must be getting pretty desperate for coverage if they're giving this thing to me. "Isn't there some mommy blogger we could put in the AMG wagon?" is how I imagine the conversation went. "No? Fine. Then give it to that guy over at Jalopnik. Dan something."
Well, Dan something is here, reporting for duty.
Actually, I'm glad I had the opportunity to drive the E63 AMG wagon, because I have an interesting perspective on this whole fast wagon thing. You see, I'm now the only person on earth who has owned a last-generation E63 AMG wagon, owned a 2011 Cadillac CTS-V wagon and, now, driven the new E63 AMG wagon. My commentary on this subject will therefore be highly useful to everyone searching for an expensive high-performance wagon, a group that numbers roughly 14 individuals, or 15 once tax refunds are mailed out.
But I've covered a lot of E63 AMG wagon ins and outs in the video below, or above, or wherever Kinja decides to put it. And Travis already wrote a review of this car back in January. (This very same car. I sat in the very same seat where Travis sat. It smelled.)
