The Ten Fastest Station Wagons Ever Made

America is finally getting a fast wagon. Let's hope more will follow. If car makers need inspiration, look no further, as these are the ten fastest right here.


10.) Holden HSV Clubsport R8 Tourer

The Ten Fastest Station Wagons Ever Made

0-62 mph: 5.8 seconds

Top Speed: 160 mph

Available with a supercharged LS3, the HSV Tourer is Australia's CTS-V Wagon. Only less fancy and more brutal.

Yes, it should have become a Pontiac.

9.) Dodge Magnum SRT8

The Ten Fastest Station Wagons Ever Made

0-62 mph: 5.1 seconds

Top speed: 169 mph

Milky:

Probably the fastest per dollar wagon.

Blue2010SRT:

A.k.a. the "unicorn" in the LX (Magnum/300/Charger) world. Very rare and still desirable. Good used ones don't seem to stay on the market long.

0-60 in mid-high 4 second range with minor bolt-ons.

0-62 mph: 4 seconds

Top speed: 179 mph

Not enough? Ring up John Hennessey. He can make it even less fuel efficient.

7.) Ferrari 456 GT Venice

The Ten Fastest Station Wagons Ever Made

0-62 mph: 5.1 seconds

Top speed: 186 mph

It's not the fastest by far, and it's not really a production car with 7 built, but I don't care. Pininfarina's Sultan of Brunei specials are the most awesome wagons ever.

6.) Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Wagon

Top speed: 186 mph

There was the Mallet with a 6.0 SOHC V8. Then the AMG S73 T W140 with the V12 from the first Zonda. Brabus used the same engine to create with the E V12T.

The tradition continues. At Brabus too.

5.) Audi RS6 Avant

The Ten Fastest Station Wagons Ever Made

0-62 mph: 3.7 seconds

Top speed: 190 mph

The RS2 Avant is what has started it all. The current RS6 Avant is where the race ends. You simply won't be able to catch it in the wet.

4.) Alpina B5 Biturbo Touring

The Ten Fastest Station Wagons Ever Made

0-62 mph: 4.3

Top speed: 198 mph

Alpinas were never meant to be the fastest cars out there. They are more about refinement. Still, since BMW refused to make a new M5 Touring, Alpina offers a rather sufficient substitute.

3.) BMW M5 Touring

The Ten Fastest Station Wagons Ever Made
0-62 mph: 4.5 seconds
Top speed: 205 mph
They've only built 1025 E61 wagons. It's a 205 mph wagon.

2.) Bentley Continental Supersports Flying Star

The Ten Fastest Station Wagons Ever Made

0-62 mph: 3.9 seconds

Top speed: 205 mph

Touring Superleggera will build no more than 19 of these three-door wagons with a 6L W12, following the line of such cars as the Aston Martin Vantage or the Maserati Quattroporte wagons.

Like a boss.

1.) Volvo 850 BTCC

The Ten Fastest Station Wagons Ever Made

0-62 mph: 6.5 seconds

Top speed: 155 mph

It might be the least powerful car on the list, but it's also the lightest. Geared to be fast on the track, the BTCC 850 is the craziest wagon ever made.
