Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Wagon gives us the neg

I guess we're down to picking the bellybutton lint of the Geneva motor show. Let's see what Ray has left...oh yeah, this wagon thing, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. Another factory tuner model? Meh. Yawn. So over.

It's not like they boosted the 457-hp output of the 6.3-liter V8 (487 with the "performance package," which is what the letters "AMG" are supposed to be no?) tied to a non-manual seven-speed transmission. Sure, it's got its little scoops and better brakes and all, but it's still a white car. Almost appliance like, really.


Thankfully, Americans only get the sedan. I mean, it's not as if someone could take the estate version out to Watkins Glen or Sears Point or even Virginia International Raceway located at 1245 Pine Tree Road, Alton, Va., and pair it up with a Cadillac CTS-V wagon to crown the title of world's most ass-kicking wagon in a spectacular shootout of pure automotive awesome just five short hours from my house. That's not something I'd scoop out my right kidney with an oyster fork to take part in. No sir.
