2021 Mercedes-Benz E450 Wagon - Driven
Being on the market since 2017, it might seem logical to glance over the Mercedes E-Class until a new-gen model arrives in a few years. That actually couldn’t be further from the truth because the E-Class lineup was refreshed for 2021 with new technology, and updated appearance, and a more efficient powertrain. We’ve been itching to see how the new E-Class stands after its most recent refresh, so Mercedes let us spend a week with the E450 Wagon. It didn’t take long for us to realize that the fifth-gen E-Class has aged well, and in fact, we’d take the E450 Wagon over most SUVs – how’s that for a plot twist?
Should Lamborghini Finally Give Us the Estoque
Do you remember the Estoque? Yes, that evocative sedan that Lambo showed us more than a decade ago. The concept car broke cover at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. This, of course, was pre-Aventador, back when Lamborghini was just trying to garner market reaction to the idea of a four-door sedan.
One of the Rarest BMW’s Ever Made Was Recently Brought Back to Life
The BMW E32 7 Series is the second generation of the brand’s full-size luxury sedan. It was made between 1986 and 1994, with a total of 311,068 units built. The E32 brought many innovations for the brand, such as traction control, active suspension, xenon headlights (1991), and dual climate control, to name a few. It was also the first car to adhere to the “Gentlemen’s agreement”, limiting top speed to 155 mph (250 km/h). What you may not know, however, is that the E32 also offered as a station wagon, which was very rare. Moreover, only one of them was a long-wheelbase variant, and recently, it underwent a full restoration.

This 1,000-Horsepower Audi RS6 Avant Makes Short Work of the Alps
When we came across Auditography’s YouTube page, we were mesmerized by the video-editing skills. Not taking anything away from the tastefully modified cars covered on the channel, but it’s the editing that makes them look even more drool-worthy. The channel seems to be a fan of the Audi RS6 Avant because this is the second time a highly-customized example has been shot in the span of a month. Unlike the 700-horsepower blue wagon, this time, it’s a 1,000-horsepower red example that’s conquering the Alps.
Meet the Jerrari - A Jeep Wagoneer - Ferrari 365GT Hybrid
I’m pretty sure every auto enthusiast, at some point in life, has come up with the bizarre idea of amalgamating two cars. Now, most of these are just passing thoughts, but what if you have resources at your hand? Will you go ahead and execute your idea? Well, if you are Bill Harrah, you sure as hell will.
Bill Harrah was a casino magnate back in the mid-1900s and is famous for his car collection. He came up with the idea of a ‘practical’ Ferrari that combined the Ferrari’s power with the Jeep Wagoneer’s robust build. The result – a four-wheel-drive Jerrari! If you act fast, it can be yours as the Jerrari is now up for sale.

Cool Shooting Brakes You Probably Didn’t Know About
Nowadays, the shooting brake body style is often associated with performance. Think of it this way – if a station wagon/estate is a more practical version of a sedan, the shooting brake is basically a more practical coupe. The initial purpose of the shooting brake was to transport hunting parties and their equipment, but over time it graduated into what can be described as a sports car/ station wagon hybrid. Many carmakers and coachbuilders started experimenting with the philosophy and these rare shooting brake versions of iconic sports cars attest to that.
Watch Audi, BMW, and Mercedes Wagons Take On Each Other In A Drag Race
Automakers may have pulled the plug on wagons in America – well, to some extent – but that doesn’t mean they’re boring vehicles by any means. In fact, if you’re ready to splurge a sizeable amount, you can get some fantastic offerings like the Audi RS6 Avant.
To prove to you that wagons can be serious fun, the folks at Carwow brought three Germans on the frag strip - an Audi RS6 C6, a BMW E61 M5, and a Mercedes-AMG E55. Which wagon do you think will win?
The Genesis G70 Shooting Brake Is A Tasty Piece of Forbidden Fruit
Europe’s wagon market just got a little bit bigger, as Korean brand Genesis is looking to take its piece of the pie with the all-new G70 Shooting Brake. Of course, it’s not a shooting brake as you or I would think of it – as in it only has two doors – so it’s really just another wagon. A fine looking wagon, at that. Featuring the G70’s sporty front end paired with a sloping rear roof and tons of cargo room, the G70 Shooting Brake has a lot to offer. Unfortunately, it won’t land in the United States because, well, we’re SUV people, right?
The Audi A6 E-Tron Could Become the Electric Wagon 2025 Needs
When Audi revealed the A6 E-Tron Concept back in April 2021, there was a very big elephant in the room: The A6 name. Despite the fact that it featured A7-like proportions, like the four-door coupe body, for example, Audi chose the A6 name instead, and there’s actually a logical reason.
