Description: The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, like the previous couple AMG wagons, is special-order only. Though, unlike the old E55 AMG Wagon, at least this one is on the Mercedes website. Read on to learn more on the 2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Wagon in this first test brought to you by the automotive experts at Motor Trend.

Pop quiz: Name the rarest model Mercedes-Benz sells. I’m thinking most of you hotshots will have answered SLS AMG Gullwing. Nope. A few of you might think it’s one of the V-12-powered CL coupes, as Mercedes -Benz makes two, the CL600 and CL65 AMG. You’d be wrong. What about that new Black Series Coupe? Well, AMG is going to build only around 1000 of those over the next year, which is about twice the number of E63 AMG Wagons to be constructed over the entire production run. We are talking exclusive — Mercedes-speak for rare.

But is this wagon actually exclusive, or just a slow seller? Remember, Mercedes is in the process of “sunsetting” Maybach. not euthanizing it. As far as this wagon goes, you can’t even walk into a dealer to buy one. No sir, the new E63 AMG, like the previous couple AMG wagons, is special-order only. Though, unlike the old E55 AMG Wagon, at least this one is on the Mercedes website.

Exclusive doesn’t just mean small numbers. It can also mean only a few with select taste are interested. A Mercedes PR person once explained to me that the typical CL customer is a man between the ages of 50 and 60 who earns between $600,000 and $2 million a year. “Dang,” I said (or something to that effect). “That’s a pretty sweet demographic. That has to be your best, right?” Turns out, no — there is a class of Mercedes customers that’s even richer than those dudes, and the car they buy is the E-Class wagon. Guys with Ferraris and Bentleys like to buy Benz wagons for their wives and kids. The net worth of the people purchasing this here AMG version then, well…discretion is the better part of filthy rich.

But you don’t need to be filthy rich to own one. Plain old regular-flavor rich will do just fine. Based on the E63 Sedan, the high-performance wagon version costs just $2600 more, starting at $94,075 including the $1700 guzzler tax. Expensive by any standard, sure, but you do get quite a bit of wagon for your money. Replacing the dearly departed M156 6.2-liter V-8 is AMG’s new and still handbuilt M157, a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 that creates more power and gets an AMG-claimed 25-percent-better fuel economy. The output numbers are more impressive still, as the new motivator churns out 518 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque in standard trim. Remember, a Corvette Z06 makes 505 hp and a Lamborghini Aventador makes 509 lb-ft of torque.
