Renntech Turns Mercedes-AMG E63 S into Dragon Wagon
Engine upgrade package and an Akrapovic exhaust system make this E63 S Wagon an even faster grocery-getter.
Crossovers and SUVs may be all the rage these days, but there are still people out there who prefer wagons. They do have their appeal. They’re low to the ground like a sedan and offer even more usable space. Some of them, such as the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon, pack performance-car levels of power. Instagrammer Craig Dobrin, who goes by the screenname craigdobs, wanted even more out of his AMG estate, so he turned to Mercedes-Benz tuner RENNtech.
In stock form, the E63 S Wagon can haul just as much ass as cargo. Thanks to its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, which cranks out 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, and AMG-tuned 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive, it can absolutely blast to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds – perfect for getting away from long, boring PTA meetings.
RENNtech has a variety of packages that will turn the E63 S Wagon into the world’s fastest road-trip vehicle. They range from ECU upgrades to bundles that include a tuned ECU, sport mufflers, and more aggressive turbos. According to Carscoops, Dobrin went with a setup that added “updated turbochargers and intake, [and an] ECU tune,” as well as an Akrapovic exhaust system. Output is up to a face-flattening 813 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque, which takes the wagon’s 0-60 mph time below the three second mark. After watching the video below, we have no problem believing that claim.
A set of 21-inch wheels with a copper finish perfectly fill in the wheel wells of the lowered body and add the finishing touch to this roomy rocketship. Dobrin’s AMG wagon makes a hell of a statement here on MB World. We can only imagine how much it stands out in the drop-off zone at his son’s school.
