While we were honoring those who took a brick to the side of the head so we could get weekends off, new info was dropping on Carscoop about the Mercedes C63 AMG wagon. The 'scoopers say AMG's take on Merc's entry wagon will debut in Frankfurt, along with its base-level siblings. With AMG's 6.2-liter V8 shoehorned under the hood, producing 457 hp and 443 foot pounds of torque, the wagon will move to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds. Thats a tenth of a second slower than the sedan, owing to a bit more bulk from a pair of golden retrievers and a case of Piper. [Carscoop]
I can't believe I never noticed it before, but those tail lights seem like a lame attempt to catch onto the rising crossover segment by making it look taller than it is.
Love the powertrain, love the deliciously sexy front-end styling, but that leaves nothing for the rear. Though I think with a properly shaped rear bumper, this could be more than easily fixed.
