Tuner Tuesday Groceries Gotten: 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63S AMG 4Matic Estate Brabus 850

We’re pretty much all big fans of fast wagons at German Cars For Sale Blog, but over the past few years the number of offerings has steadily dried up. We’ve never received the hot versions of the M5 Touring or RS6 Avant, for example, and steadily even the quick versions of the Audi and Volkswagen wagons have left these shores too. That leaves fast wagon fans to look towards only two places in the last few years; Cadillac, oddly, with the CTS-V wagon and the last German holdout, Mercedes-Benz. It’s somewhat odd that Mercedes-Benz has upped the nuttiness in its large E-class wagon too, since it never really took part in the original Wagon Wars between its countrymen. True, there were some limited number AMG conversions done in the late 80s/early 90s, but for the most part Mercedes-Benz had stayed away until recently. Then, a few years ago, it started offering AMG-enhanced versions of the E-Class Estate; first in 55, then later 63 form. If you can get by the strange numbering system that doesn’t correspond to the actual engine under the hood, that leaves you with one of the fastest wagons made out of the box. Walk down to your local Mercedes-Benz dealer and you can order up one of these W212 Estates with a staggering 577 horsepower in “S” form. That was a true supercar number not very long ago, but it comes wrapped in the guise of a sensible wagon with all-wheel drive and a slick 7-speed automatic transmission. Of course, it’s heavy…so it only does 0-60 runs in 3.6 seconds. That means you won’t be able to keep up with your neighbor’s new BMW M6 Gran Coupe, which does the run in 3.1 seconds. Time to hit the Brabus gym, then…

That’s right, take your car to Brabus and they’ll up the power by nearly 300 horsepower, giving you 850. That’s not a typo, that’s eight hundred and fifty horsepower. That takes your E-class Estate down to a 3.1 second 0-60 run so you can match the Gran Coupe. Additionally, you’ll get a bespoke interior, special wheels, special aero tweaks, illuminated Brabus badges and enough bling to make a Kardashian notice. Of course, that means it’ll cost you – that 300 horsepower corresponds to a $205,000 increase over the standard E63 AMG 4Matic Estate. That’s also not a misprint; you could have three brand new “base” E63 AMGs for the price of this one Brabus 850. Wow.

It must be lonely at the top. Fast, but lonely.

  1. Pure drool and lust going on over here….. i have to clean off my desk. That is an 11 on the 1-10 scale of awesomeness.

  2. Pity the wheels. I guess tirerack was having a clearance sale.

  3. 850 bhp in a wagon? Really ? is that where we are now? I love wagons, the Audi S4 Avant with manual trans is the perfect everyday car to own. It does it all. I dont see the point in an 850 bhp $350k wagon. Okay … sure if you slipped me the keys and title I would “find the room” for it in my garage. Sure it would be silly fun dusting unsuspecting fools with so called “sports cars” who rolled up on you with a smirk because you were in a wagon.

  4. I applaud the sheer nuttiness of this car. Well played Brabus.

    Also, there’s a pretty neat looking 1989 Brabus wagon on German ebay right now:

  5. this is clearly for the fellow who has too much bloody money…
    having driven a CTS-V wagon….I can’t begin to imagine the neck snapping power of this brute…
    still for almost 300k US. there are other cars I’d rather have…..94 911 Turbo 3.6 S. to be precise

  6. I am in Howard’s camp on this one. I am a huge fan of the RS2, and the UrS6 Avant, and most all wagons, but somehow this one misses the mark for me. I just don’t see firing up 850 hp for getting groceries; what’s the point? I guess there is a market for them, it’s just not for me.

  7. Heck, after looking at that G63 6×6 earlier this week, this Brabus E63 looks practical and a bargain! Well, sort of….

  8. Dammit…now I have to change my pants.
