Spy images of a 2009 Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG Estate have made an appearance. Unfortunately the car's official unveil is still 10 months away at Frankfurt 2009.

At the Frankfurt Motor Show we'll be able to see the new Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG in all its full glory, minus all this black plastic you see in our latest spy shots. These cars are not your average mama's trolleys but fully-fledged missiles disguised as baby prams. Spied here is the E 63 AMG in Estate format, meaning Usain Bolt carrying a travel suitcase, but just as quick.

The E 63 AMG shows off its big brakes with cross-drilled discs and a lowered suspension, as well as those four huge round tailpipes. Also a new front bumper with larger air intakes should be a major attraction. That 6.2-litre V8 is expected to keep its place under the hood, producing well over 550 bhp in line with current German power king Audi RS6's 573 horses.
