You Need a Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon

If you can only own one car, own this car.

Let's say you have a family and you love performance cars, but you can't have two cars. You need one car that'll do it all. That'll take the kids to school, the family to dinner, get stuff from Home Depot, and something that's fun to drive. You have very few options that'll tick all those boxes.

Sure, you could buy a fast SUV or crossover, but do you really want to do that? Everyone has crossovers these days, and they just aren't that much fun to drive no matter how quick they are. A fast sedan might work, but not if you want to haul a lot of people and things.

No matter, Mercedes has the solution for you with this, the E63 S Wagon. It's based on the latest E-Class wagon, which is brilliant and beautiful. It also has AMG's lovely 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 that can be found in all of the company's fastest cars. In this case, it's putting out 603 horsepower.

That's right, 603 hp in a wagon. It's paired with all-wheel drive, but you can disconnect the front axle if you want to go bananas and drift it all over the place. It's pretty good at being a hooligan.

But it's also quite good at just being a car. It's restrained when you want it to be, in-your-face when you need it to be. And the best part is that most people on the road will have no idea that your wagon is one of the quickest, most powerful cars you can buy today. Particularly if you get it in an anonymous color and get the badges deleted.

What you have here is the ultimate sleeper, something quick and fun that'll satisfy your need for a practical family hauler while not making you too upset that you can't fill another garage space with something small and quick.
