2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Wagon

Codename: Star Cruiser

Here's the plan: The E63 AMG Wagon is going to sneak through U.S. customs in October, make a mad dash to suburbia at over 180 mph and then assimilate into the school drop-off line amongst the throng of two-box people movers. From there it will conduct periodic high-speed day missions, typically with commander dad at the helm.

Starting price: Probably around $90,000
Engine: New 5.5-liter, twin-turbo V8
Output: 518 horsepower, 516 pound-feet of torque (550 hp, 590 lb-ft with performance package)
Top speed: Sedan does 186 mph
0-60 mph: Sedan does it in 4.4 seconds (4.3 with performance package)
Cargo capacity (behind first/second row): 68.9/34.8 cubic feet (compared with 15.9 for the sedan)
