It's the most expensive E-Class money can buy.

Pricing is out in Germany for Mercedes’ latest super wagon available in its base guise from €112,907. With 571 horsepower (420 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet (750 Newton-meters) of torque, there’s actually nothing basic about it. The standard E63 Estate provides supercar levels of performance by running to 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.6 seconds and will hit an electronically capped 155 mph (250 kph).

Should you be willing to spend more, the hotter S version retails for €124,688. It ups the power ante to 612 hp (450 kW) and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm), which in turn lowers the time it takes to complete the sprint by a tenth of a second. Top speed continues to be governed at 155 mph (250 kph), but both E63 models can be had at an additional cost with an optional AMG Driver’s Package bumping the limiter to 180 mph (290 kph).

If you’re willing to go all out, Mercedes-AMG has an even more expensive model. The E63 S Estate Edition 1 available for only one year will set you back a hefty €139,980 (about $152,851). The premium you’ll be paying to get this range topper won’t bring more power. Instead, the limited-run Edition 1 is all about a series of cosmetic tweaks both inside and out. There are fancy designo selenite grey magno or designo night black magno paints to choose from, along with the AMG Night Package, body stripes, and matte black 20-inch forged wheels featuring a high-gloss polished rim flange.

Pictured above is the regular E63 S, but Mercedes says the fully specced Edition 1 has black nappa leather upholstery with yellow contrast stitching, as well as a carbon fiber trim, and a bunch of other yellow accents applied throughout the cabin. As a final touch, the steering wheel is adorned with the “Edition 1” badge to serve as a reminder it’s not a regular E63.

Mercedes-AMG is already taking orders for all three models and will have them in dealerships across Deutschland from June. The E63 S Estate's closest domestic rival, the Audi RS6 Avant Performance, is available locally from €117,500.

Available for order now: Mercedes-AMG E 63 4MATIC+ Estate and E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate: Sales release of the Performance Estate models

Fuel consumption, combined: 9.1 l/100 km, CO2 emissions, combined: 206 g/km

Affalterbach. In the new E 63 4MATIC+ Estate and E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate models (fuel consumption combined: 9.1 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 206 g/km), Mercedes-AMG marries the hallmark driving performance to high utility and the intelligence of the E‑Class. With immediate effect, the Performance Estate model can now be ordered with prices starting at 112,907 euros* and at 124,688 euros* for the S‑Model. They will arrive at dealerships in June 2017.

As already the Saloon model, the E 63 4MATIC+ Estate and E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate offer innovative drive system technology and maximum performance, combined with a discrete design and exclusive equipment. In addition, the vehicles are also fitted with the latest infotainment features for extensive connected multimedia applications.

The 4.0‑litre twin-turbo V-8 engine with an output of up to 450 kW (612 hp) and the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive ensure superior driving dynamics. An acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h of 3.5 seconds sets a new record in this class. Thanks to standard cylinder deactivation, the engine is actually even more efficient. Compared with the predecessor, the throttle response of the new Estate model is even more agile besides: The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT (Multi-Clutch Technology) 9‑speed sports transmission is combined with a wet start-off clutch. Another highlight is the new AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system, which combines the advantages of various drive configurations. The torque split between the front and rear axles, which is fully variable for the first time, ensures optimum traction in all road conditions.

The new E 63 4MATIC+ Estate likewise sets standards in its segment when it comes to everyday practicality: boasting a capacity of 640 to 1820 litres, its boot is the largest in the performance estate segment.

Even more exclusivity: the E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate Edition 1

From the market launch, the E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate is available for about one year as an especially exclusively appointed Edition 1 model. The designo selenite grey magno or optionally designo night black magno paintwork and the AMG Night package boost the powerful appearance, while the dynamic stripes above the side sill panels optimally highlight the elongated side profile. Added to this are the AMG 20‑inch forged wheels, painted in matt black with high-gloss polished rim flange.

The black nappa leather AMG Performance seats with yellow topstitching characterise the sporty ambience in the interior, which is further enhanced by the colour-coordinated yellow highlights on the AMG Performance sports steering wheel, upper part of the dashboard, door panels, centre console, AMG floor mats and analogue clock in IWC design. The sports steering wheel in black DINAMICA microfibre features "Edition 1" lettering and a 12‑o 'clock marking in black. Carbon-fibre trim elements further enhance the exciting juxtaposition of colours and materials. The price for the E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate Edition 1 is 139,980 euros (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price for Germany including 19% VAT).
