Fast wagons are pretty popular in many European countries (but sadly not here in South Africa), which is why G-Power decided to create this crazy tuned Mercedes-AMG E63 S wagon. The high-performance all-wheel-drive estate gains a substantial increase in power and slightly altered styling, too.
To make it more at home on the Autobahn, German tuner G-Power has hiked the peak outputs of the E63 S wagon’s twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8 from the stock 450 kW and 800 N.m of torque to 588 kW and a monster 1 100 N.m. This, the firm claims, allows the wagon to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 3,1 seconds and reach a top speed of 340 km/h.
The added oomph was unlocked thanks to the implementation of the G-Power Performance Software V3 and the addition of a pair of larger Garrett turbochargers.
As far as looks are concerned, the stationwagon scores a slight drop in ride height as well as a set of 20-inch Hurricane RR forged alloy wheels, wrapped in 24/30 ZR20 front and 285/25 ZR20 rear tyres.
The tuning firm hasn’t revealed a price for the total package, but it has stated that for 2018 only the ECU upgrade will be available for €2 437 (that’s about R40 135)…
