At least, this is the prime conclusion we reach after seeing these spy shots that reveal a test mule of the forthcoming C 63 AMG T-Modell Black Series. Not only the impressive front air intakes, but also the thick camouflage covering the sides and tail gate of the car also raise "suspicions". If it happens to go on sale towards end of 2012, this masterpiece of German engineering could well become one of the fastest wagons on Earth.
The technical package is set to come from the Coupe model, which means a finely-tuned AMG sports suspension for the best dynamic response, a high-end rear axle differential lock for added traction and the multi-talented 3-stage electronic stability program. Other highlights include the popular 6.2-litre V8 engine, boasting natural aspiration, a staggering peak output of 517 BHP and 620 Nm of maximum torque. The innovative AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission will take care to send the massive power to the rear wheels.
Expected to borrow the aggressive looks of the Coupe, the T-Modell will feature a lowered ride height, forged AMG light-alloy wheels with a total diameter of 19 inches, quad exhausts and multiple aerodynamic body parts to help improve air flow and thus the drag coefficient (Cd) and the general performance of the car. All these upgrades together with the extra practicality of this model over the Coupe and anticipated Limousine version announce a prohibitive price tag for the new C 63 AMG Estate Black Series: in Europe, we expect around 120,000 euros (incl. 19% VAT).
