Mercedes E63 AMG wagon gets 838 hp thanks to Brabus

January 7th, 2014

Filed under: , , , ,

Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Wagon

Generally speaking, the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Wagon is no slouch. It’s considerably more sporting than some full-blown sports cars, all while being able to haul the kids to soccer practice or make a quick trip to the grocery store. What if you want more, though? Well, if the E63′s 577 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque aren’t enough to sate your appetite for power, the team from Brabus is just a phone call away, and now the German tuning house has turned its hand to the E63 Wagon.

This might be the only 838-horsepower, 848-pound-foot car to be disappointing, although that’s merely because its sedan counterpart comes to market with 850 horsepower and 1,069 lb-ft of torque. Despite these lower power figures, though, Brabus is claiming that the 850 6.0 Wagon is actually faster to 62 than the Sedan – 3.1 seconds in the long-roof and 3.5 in the four-door. Top speed is limited to 186 miles per hour.

All the extra fury is thanks to a bored-out version of the E63′s 5.5-liter, biturbocharged V8. Now displacing 5.9 liters, it’s been fitted with heavily revised internals and sports (naturally) larger turbochargers. Brabus tells Evo that the lower power output of the Wagon is all in the name of engine life, but if it’s really faster to 60, we can’t imagine owners will be all that bothered. We’ve got a fairly hefty gallery of images of this long-roof rocket up top, so scroll up and let us know what you think.

Next Polestar Volvo sounds great, whatever it is

January 7th, 2014

Filed under: , , ,

Something – we don’t know what yet – is coming from Polestar. While we’ll be recovering from next week’s LA Auto Show and Tokyo Motor Show (and starting to slack off ahead of an extended Thanksgiving weekend), the official tuner of Volvo products has announced plans to unveil its latest creation in less than two weeks.

Based on this video teaser, we can only imagine (and hope) that it’s the souped-up Volvo V60 recently caught testing by our spy shooters. The idea of a high-performance Volvo wagon was already enough to get us giddy last month, but the exhaust note in this video is downright captivating. Scroll down to watch the teaser for yourself, and be prepared for some bright blue wagony goodness to be revealed on November 26.

Brazil contemplates safety exemption for VW Kombi as it goes out of production today [w/poll]

January 6th, 2014

Filed under: , , , , ,

Volkswagen Kombi Last Edition

Brazil: the country of carnivals, indescribable beauty adjacent to abject poverty, Ayrton Senna and old Volkswagen models. Only they’re not old – they’re new, they’re just based on old designs. The original Beetle continued production there long after it had been phased out elsewhere, but the original Kombi van has lasted much longer. That ends today, however, with the iconic VW Microbus ambling out of production on the last day of 2013.

VW kept making the van in Brazil with the original air-cooled 1.2-liter boxer four until 2005, after which the original design was updated with a 1.4-liter water-cooled engine. Today, however, it ultimately falls prey to safety regulations that mandate that all vehicles – no matter how old their design – need to have airbags and ABS, forcing Volkswagen do Brasil to cease production of the Microbus after a 56-year production run. But the latest word is that the Kombi (as it’s presently known) could get a stay of execution – or at least a resurrection in short order.

According to reports, the Brazilian government is looking into granting the Type 2 Microbus an exemption from said safety regulations, reasoning that the van was designed long before the advent of airbags and ABS. If the measure goes through, the Kombi Last Edition (pictured above) could prove not to be the last at all. So what do you think, should the Microbus get an exemption from Brazilian safety regulations for nostalgia’s sake? Vote in our poll below, then have your say in Comments.

Ford vandalizes the SEMA Show floor with 2014 Transit Connect

Ford Trans Connect at SEMA

The Ford booth here at SEMA is practically a 1970s throwback with all these customized vans sitting front and center. And we’re completely fine with that. Take the black and yellow (black and yellow, black and yellow) 2014 Transit Connect from Mobsteel above. It’s got a great stance, sits on steel wheels and has a pretty cool paint job and graphics package to boot.

Of course, that’s not the only van you can see at the Ford booth. In fact, there are 10 Transit Connect vans on display from Ford here at SEMA, and you can see them all in our live gallery of high-res images above. Then, if you want to know more about each specific model, feel free to scroll down to read all about these vans in the official press release from Ford.
