The Station-Wagon or Estate as it is called in the U.S is a dying breed that is gradually being replaced by SUVs. That doesn’t mean that it will completely be gone as their fans still remain. Over the years there have been some Station-Wagons that are so powerful that they can put a Sports Car to shame. In this list, we will look at 5 most powerful Station-Wagons ever built in recent times. Only One model per brand will be picked so let’s begin.
1. Audi RS6 Avant
The first on our list is from Audi and boy is it fast. The RS6 Avant is powered by a 4.0 twin-turbo V8 that peaks 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. The powerplant combines with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, an all-wheel-drive with 8-speed automatic transmission. Audi claims this super wagon will rocket to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and top out at 189 mph (with the optional Dynamic package).
2. Mercedes-Benz E63S Estate
The offering from Mercedes is insane with too much power. This beast packs a 4.0 twin-turbo V8 that generates a whopping 603hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. This crazy fast wagon does 0 to 60mph in 3 secs which is bonkers. This wagon is mated with a 9-speed automatic transmission with 4-matic+. The E63s Wagon is as fast as an Audi R8, that’s supercar level speed. The C63s Wagon can pass to in this list, but the E63s Wagon is the top dog of all Mercedes-Benz wagons.
