Mercedes-Benz has a tradition of making automotive anomalies in the form of ridiculously fast station wagons with enough juice to take out most sports sedans off the line. And the new 2018 E63 S Wagon is no exception.

With a solid basis in the marque's much-lauded E-Class platform, the wicked wagon hosts a hand-crafted AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine with an output of up to 603 hp and the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system that can rip on any road - or off. 

That translates to blistering acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, setting a new record in its class. At the same time Mercedes' engineers have made it even more efficient than previous versions. 

The E63 S Wagon also kicks it with the awesome AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT (Multi Clutch Technology) 9-speed sport transmission combined with a "wet clutch", and fully variable torque distribution on the front and rear axles for the very first time.

If you want to haul kids or golf clubs around in this beast that's your business...
