Exclamation Warning car thread!!!

1200 HP CTS-V Wagon by Hennessey Performance - YouTube

1,200hp station wagon, I'm in love!

You need to make sure the kids are strapped in, in the rear facing seats so the G forces don't slam them into the rear glass!

My wife was upset with me for not getting her a CTS-V wagon when they came out. Now she had the Caddy place on speed dial waiting for the new and updated one to hit the lot.

Does Mercedes make an AMG wagon of some type? And not an SUV; a real wagon.

You betcha: E63 AMG S 4MATIC.

If that's too tame, then Brabus has an answer: Brabus Tunes Mercedes E63 AMG Wagon to 850 Horsepower.

Quote:
When allís said and done, Brabusís E63 wagon makes 850 horsepower at 5400 rpm, and is capable of producing 1069 lb-ft of torque between 2500 and 4500 rpm. Sadly, peak torque is limited to 848 lb-ft in real-world use because of some nonsense about powertrain longevity. Whatever.

Love the CTS-V wagon. Worked on the introduction campaign of the CTS-V sedan and coupe, rumors were flying high they would come out with a wagon. One of the biggest car jobs I've ever worked on. Two weeks on five stages for stills and motion.

One was featured in a movie that came out a couple of years ago called "Hit and Run".

The AMG estates are apparently pretty hard to get in the US. Since dealerships have an AMG allotment number, they would rather sell a higher priced SL or CLS version than use up one on an estate.

200hp you will actually use, and 1000 for bragging rights.

That would be a good tool hauler for you Hattie. My W124 was a great work wagon.
