C63 Estate Shows Off Muscle At Spa

Notwithstanding Mercedes’ current thrust towards establishing a foothold in the mindset of the younger generations, what would an avid car guy turn to when he’s got a family and their stuff to haul around? Well, one doesn’t have to go further than Mercedes’ own C63 AMG Estate. As this video amply shows, the C63 AMG Estate can do double (triple?) duty as a family hauler, an occasional stoplight grand prix weapon and even a track special. This particular C63 AMG Estate was shot at Spa Francorchamps, one of the world’s greatest tracks. To the delight of the guy who shot the clip and to all of us who see it,… Continue Reading »

C63 AMG Estate Black Series Spyshots

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… Continue Reading »

Weighing in at 4,629 pounds, this elongated station wagon measures 19 feet in length (5.79m) and has a wheelbase of 12 feet (3.65m). No doors were added to the existing estate layout. Still, it has more than enough room to stretch your legs. Enough room, in fact, to fit in your favorite NBA team, an extended family or your buddies for a camping weekend. And speaking of space,… Continue Reading »

New C-Class rounding the Nurburgring

It’s been a while since we last wrote about the facelifted C-Class. Well, here’s the saloon variant making rounds on infamous Nurburgring. In case you’re wondering, this is the track that gave the new CLS is first ever recorded crash, as well as the SLS AMG GT3’s first fiasco on a track on its racing debut. You can see that this test car has been lightly disguised to reveal subtle visual enhancements up front, most notably taking cues from the brand-new E-Class range—the headlamps, the well-contoured bonnet and the redesigned bumper. Now, if you peek at the rear end, you’ll find even less enhancements, limited to the bumper and the… Continue Reading »

Susan Stoddart takes the E63 Estate for a dance

It’s not everyday that you see a full-sized family wagon being hooned–especially on a racetrack. In fact, you could say it’s an impossibility. It’s even less probable that you see one being pushed to its limits not by a male driver, but by a professional female racr. So therein lies the difference between Mercedes-Benz and other premium car manufacturers. They dare put their name and reputation at stake by doing the impossible. In this video, you’ll find out exactly what we’re talking about. It’s none other than pro-racing femme fatale Susie Stoddart behind the wheel of the latest E-Class Es63 Estate. And yes, those squeals you hear are the tires… Continue Reading »
