2007 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate

When discussing rare cars of the recent past, something I often find myself doing with friends, one has to mention the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate. Quicker, more dynamic, and slightly sharper looking than the E55 that it replaced, the 2007 E63 is on many an automotive enthusiast’s bucket list, including my own. To have such great power on tap, in a relatively non-imposing package that is also very practical for day to day life, well it’s a drivers dream come true. The only problem is that Mercedes only saw fit to bestow 67 of them upon us in 2007, a fact that this seller, and many others surely relish. Since there is no direct competition for the car in the United States, and it was sold here in very limited quantities, Mercedes essentially guaranteed buyers of the E63 that their car would retain a decent amount of value. It’s not BMW 1M or Boxster Spyder levels of value retention, but for a big Merc wagon I’d say that the drop off hasn’t been nearly as bad as other W211 models. Only time will tell if it can hold on its current collector status once the glorious day arrives when we can import the C6 RS6 Avant, and E61 M5 Touring. Until 2032, we’re stuck with just the E63, and I don’t think anyone has any complaints about that. It’s a car that is laughably quick, and in spite of itself, a complete sleeper. Until you stomp on the gas and leave everyone around you wondering what just happened, the E63 AMG Estate is just another wagon roaming the streets looking for a Pinkberry.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model 4Matic Estate

Coming from a family with a history of Mercedes-Benz ownership spanning decades, it pains me to admit that few vehicles in the 2015 lineup impress me. Apart from the Geländewagen and AMG GT, the one car which stands out in the lineup is the car we see here: the E63 AMG S-Model Estate. Mercedes is on its third generation of bonkers AMG-tuned wagons, with this latest all-wheel drive beast cranking out 577 horsepower from the twin-turbo V8. That makes this five-door good for a sprint to 60 mph in under four seconds. A bit ridiculous for a family hauler, no? However, if you’re in a real hurry for that quart of milk…

2007 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate

$_4 (1)

I give a lot of credit to Mercedes-Benz for sticking it out with one conspicuous model in their lineup: the E-class AMG estate. “Sport” is an understatement with this vehicle, given the amount of power lurking under the hood. For three generations, Mercedes-Benz has offered an AMG-infused estate, with US customers gaining access over the last two generations. While AMG has lent its name on the tailgate of many of their SUVs, this fast five-door has the mettle to back up the aggressive stance. With a lower center of gravity and a lusty, naturally aspirated V8 under the hood, entertainment will ensue for the serious driver. This 2007 E63 AMG estate for sale in California has just over 62,000 miles and should give the kids a bit of a laugh if you decide to hoon a bit.

2007 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate

Scanning our Facebook page the other day, I came across a rather amusing comment in response to our LS1 powered M coupe: “haul a** much?” Well, that would certainly apply to this five-door specimen, the E63 AMG Estate. What seems an improbable creation to be sold in the US market has now been with us through a few generations, proving this cult car does have some staying power amongst the enthusiasts. And when a company like Cadillac all of a sudden decided to drop a V8 bomb in their CTS wagon, well, you know you are on to something. For sale at a Porsche dealer outside of Washington DC, this one is doing its best to blend in with a shade of burgundy.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate

new-2014-mercedes~benz-e~class-amgwagon4matic-5520-12567782-1-640

I’ve been seeing some insane E63 Wagons around town, and every time it blows my mind that that’s the way that some young families get to soccer practice in the Bay Area. I even saw a matte titanium gray S-edition street-parked in Palo Alto. They’ve been called “überexclusive,” but that doesn’t seem to apply in the land of tech. Over 500 twin-turbocharged horses in a station wagon sounds like a tuner magazine article, but it’s real, warrantied, production car life these days. While the transition to all-wheel drive may have snuffed the burnouts, I’d be dishonoring my nature to think that 0-60 in under 4 seconds in a wagon is anything less than true badassery.

2013 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate

$_57

The Wall Street Journal ran a piece last Friday covering the new E63 AMG S Series Estate. More than one friend messaged me over the weekend asking if I read about this new fast five-door. I informed them, however, that a fast estate car is nothing new for Mercedes-Benz. This just happens to be the first one to employ an all-wheel drive system. Still, my remarks were met with confusion, as those who read the article viewed such an estate vehicle as impractical or unattractive. To each their own, but for those jaded by the glut of SUVs on US roads, a V8 monster like this 2013 E63 AMG Estate is just what the doctor ordered.

Wagon Week Last Stand: 2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 Wagon

The past several years have not been good for fast wagon fans. Long gone is the Audi S6 wagon, the Audi S4 and A4 leaving us more recently. BMW never even bothered to bring any of the M5 wagons here, nor did Volkswagen bring the Passat R36 – and the Passat wagon has gone altogether. SAAB has gone too, with the Aero wagons gone. So to have gone the WRX and Legacy GT wagons, the Mazdaspeed 6 wagon and the Volvo V70R. Sad days are these when fast wagon choices have evaporated from these shores. But there is one bastion of hope; for a mere $102,000 (MSRP) you can still walk down to your Mercedes-Benz dealer and drive out in the 577 hp monster wagon that is the AMG E63. Bad news, burnout fans – for 2013, it’s all-wheel drive only, but a sideways fan can grab a rear-driver 2012 CPO E63 AMG like this one today:

There you go, German wagon motoring’s last hope for the time being. And a bright note it is! While the newer Mercedes-Benz E class wagons aren’t the best looking, they’re certainly one of the fastest wagons ever produced. Thankfully Mercedes-Benz keeps shipping these this way, even though they’ve lost a bit of their nutitude by switching to all-wheel drive. Still, how long could they have held out against the tide? This is about as good of a E63 rear driver you can get, in a pleasing color combination with the right wheels. At $82,000, it seems like a reasonable deal compared to the new model (considering it, too, is basically new). It’s also the last stand of the great fast German wagons; something to both be proud and sad about at the same time.

2007 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG

Remember when the 500 horsepower benchmark was only breached by supercars like the Lamborghini Diablo, Ferrari 575M and Aston Martin Vanquish S? It’s hard to believe that only 10 years later these incredible power figures are now available in family sedans offered by 4 different German marques. The battle of auto egos and the quest for alpha horsepower figures has brought us some pretty interesting cars and one of my favorites is the Mercedes-Benz E63. This example comes in retirement home white making it the perfect slate for a true sleeper.

2007 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Keyless! Navi! Arctic White/Gray Interior. This is the wife’s car. Time to make some room for another purchase. No scratches, perfect paint, serviced regularly.
* 6.3L V8 AMG! (507 HP)
* SUNROOF!
* PREMIUM PACKAGE 2!
* NAVIGATION SYSTEM!
* SUEDE HEADLINER!
* HEATED and COOLED FRONT SEATS!
* KEYLESS GO!
* 6 DISC CD CHANGER!
* HARMAN/KARDON PREMIUM SOUND!

While BMW tends to go heavy on the sport flare for its M models with side vents, huge bumper intakes and aggressive hoods, Mercedes-Benz has always done it in a very unassuming way. If you take away the badging the E63 AMG is hard to distinguish from its weaker siblings, the only big giveaways being a slightly more aggressive front dam and the thunderous noise emitting from the signature AMG quad exhaust pipes. With 507 horses to dispatch from the glorious hand built V8 you have more than enough power handle most sports cars on the street. I’ve always dreamt of replacing the AMG badges with E320 BlueTEC nomenclature and then terrorizing unassuming people at stop lights and through tunnels.

This 2007 example looks to have been used as a grocery getter and Saturday night bingo player shuttle in Miami. The asking price is a little high but with less than 60K on the clock it’s still a ton of car for the money. The seller will have to come down $3-4K to find a buyer for this creampuff super sedan. In the next 12-24 months I see depreciation sinking these AMGs to low $20,000. Time to sit back and be patient.

2007 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate – REVISIT

After reading through an online discussion on Generation Benz, an invite-only market research portal for Mercedes-Benz owners, I was rather unhappy to read over some of the comments from Mike Martin, C-class Product Manager. A participant asked whether or not there were plans in the works to bring the C class estate stateside. This was the response:

“There are currently no plans to import the C-Class wagon or AMG wagon due to low sales history and low US consumer interest in wagons. Also, a GLK really serves the functionality needs of a C-Class sized wagon or utility vehicle.”

So there you have it. It’s just that simple. You’ll have your cute ute and you’ll like it. To Mr. Martin, I have but three words: no thank you.

It’s sad to think that Mercedes-Benz is going to become just another purveyor of soft roaders chock full of the latest gizmos, but this is the road they seem to be steering towards. While they still offer the E63 AMG Estate here in the US, you know it’s just a matter of time before it becomes a victim of the no fun club. In the meantime, it’s still possible to find the errant low mileage AMG estate. Normally I steer clear of cars from New York City, but the black on black meanie we featured a a few weeks ago is back up for sale with just a few more miles on the clock.

As rare as they come, only 67 E63 AMG Wagons were sold in the US in 2007 and this is the best color combo they made. Black on black, pure stealth bomber status. Amazingly fast wagon, 6.2 liter V8, 507 hp @ 6800 RPM, 465 lb-ft @ 5200 RPM. Entusiast-owned from brand new, this car was a special order direct from Germany. Fully serviced only at Factory MB Dealer, last service was just this week to prepare it for sale. It has Mercedes DVD players in the rear headrests complete with separate headphones, a must if you have kids. The Car is stunning and needs nothing except a new owner. Both keys, manuals, all weather mats etc. Rare opportunity. These cars are highly coveted among the AMG enthusiast crowd. They don’t hit the market often and when they do, they always bring a big following. No accidents, clean title/Carfax. Must be seen and driven in person to be appreciated. No scratches/dents/smells/stains or curb rash on the wheels. Has to one of the cleanest E63 Wagons in existence, inspections welcome! These things are very rare, even rarer to find one with this color combo, options and low mileage. They almost have a cult following in the car world, not a lot of car companies make a sporty wagon these days, definitely not many making a 507 Horsepower V8 Monster! This thing will embarrass most Italian Supercars, a real sleeper, keep them guessing!

We’ve featured plenty of these E63 AMG estates here on GCFSB and they can be polarizing cars. Some people will instantly wonder, why bother hot rodding a boring wagon? But for most of our readers, I’m sure the appeal is apparent. Versus an SUV, the lower center of gravity, rear-wheel drive and relatively modest weight gain over the AMG sedan makes for one hell of a screamer.

The last time this car came up for sale, the buyer didn’t follow through (at a selling price of $38,900), and the car was relisted at $42,900. A few weeks later and we’re down to $41,800. I’d say the original selling price is just about right. While the car has low mileage and is clean, over $40,000 is a bit much, even considering the fact that we’re dealing with New York and you encounter the typical surcharge on goods and services of all kinds.

Pics are not the best and don’t do the car the justice it deserves, i will take better ones this week the first decent day we get. No paintwork or accidents, clean Title / carfax. You may be able to extend the Mercedes Benz factory warranty pending certain restrictions, contact me for more info. Must be seen and driven in person to be appreciated. No scratches / dents / smells / stains or curb rash on the wheels. Has to one of the cleanest E63 Wagons in existence, inspections welcome!!

Time is about to run out on this listing, but I thought it was worth a post since we love to track market values and no reserve listings are a great way to do this. This black uber wagon has only 36,300 miles. With over 500 horsepower on tap and paddle shifters the E63 AMG makes one awesome and practical car. This is a scarce ride so it will be interesting to see where the price ends up, we’ve noted before that these monster German wagons have cult like followings.

Bidding is up to $38,900, that is a lot of depreciation.
