2009 Mercedes C63 AMG Estate
This could be a double-scoop on Infomotori’s behalf: the upcoming C-Class Estate and the C63 AMG Estate but honestly, who cares about the first, it’s just another boring station wagon. However, when you combine a boring shape with V8 powerhouse and rear-wheel drive all of a suddenly it becomes mighty intriguing.
For the moment, all we know is that, like its sedan sibling, the C63 AMG Estate will be equipped with the same 6.2-litre V8 engine that’s fitted in the CLK 63 AMG, E63 AMG, CLS 63AMG etc. But how many ponies will come out of this version of the supercharged V8? Tough question. The current AMG wears a 5.4 V8 pumping out 367Hp which obviously isn’t enough to create a buzz if you consider that its two German rivals, the BMW M3 and the Audi RS4, both get 420Hp V8’s. On the other hand, the CLK 63 AMG’s V8 has an output of 481 while the E63 AMG, 514Hp. Our guess? More than 450 and below 500Hp. Pics via: Infomotori.co.uk
