Some people are suckers for fast station wagons and we at BenzInsider are not averse to a well sorted one, specially if it’s a smallish estate, as they’re more commonly known now. Auto Evolution has reported capturing a C63 AMG Black Series prototype in the flesh with the pictures to prove it. As the bigger Audi S6 and M5 Touring cars have demonstrated, there is a niche market for these types of cars which a Black Series Estate can perfectly fill. Imagine the gapes of wonder a wagon with a 6.2 liter V8 pumping 517 horsepower to the wheels will produce. Transmitting all that power will be Mercedes’ excellent 7-speed Speedshift transmission.
Before you think than this extreme wagon is just a toy, Mercedes-Benz estates are in wide use as medical and service vehicles. Although, a 500-plus horsepower medical car with huge wheels and matching arches may seem a bit much, one only needs to watch an F1 race to see one in service.
