Mercedes E63 Wagon Exists

Thanks to some deep cover investigative reporting, which no doubt involved several highly uncomfortable exchanges over the Nurburgring's famous strudel--don't forget the cream!--Motor Authority has discovered that Mercedes Benz is indeed planning an AMG version of the new E-Class station wagon:

Despite current concerns about global warming and a possible end to the horsepower war between Germany's in-house tuners, the new E63 Estate will continue with the potent hand-built 6.2-liter V-8, as well as the same mechanical upgrades offered in the E63 Sedan.
Yes, against all the odds, they even managed to snap a few "spy shots" of the mysteriously camouflaged beast--see the bit of gaffer's tape right there where the 3-pointed star is thought to go.

As for a US-spec E63 Wagon:

"So far Mercedes-Benz has only confirmed the E350 Estate model for the U.S., however, if demand is strong enough hopefully the high-performance E63 family hauler will come too."
this sounds like a big, fat "NEIN!"

Frankfurt Auto Show Update: Looks like the E63 AMG Estate will be released in Feb. 2010--in countries where they call station wagons "Estates." Stiff upper lip, Guv'nuh!

Oh man, if money grew in my backyard, an E350 wagon would look good in the driveway. Heck, an E320 Bluetec wagon would look good in the driveway. An E63, well, that would be like Christmas morning everyday.
