What if you had $100,000 to go car shopping with?

Would you get the most tricked-out European sports car that could handle the Nürburgring with ease? Would you get the latest uber-muscle car, like the Z06 Corvette or the Dodge Hellcat Redeye that can do 0-60mph in under 4 seconds? Would you go the other way and get the plushest all-wheel drive SUV on the market, so that you could carry everyone in complete safety and comfort through mountain roads in treacherous conditions?

What if there was one car that offered it all for $100,000?

We are talking 0-60 in 3.3 seconds, race-track ready suspension and track lap times that could make even a Porsche 911 blush. At the same time, you there's completely luxurious comfort for five people, all-wheel drive practicality and a size and shape that easily fits in your garage.

Does such a wonder car really exist?

It does, and it is the 2018 AMG E63 S Wagon. Generally, compromises like this do everything while doing nothing well.

But the E63 wagon is different. It does everything, and it does it all well. In comfort mode, we drove the E63 some 300 miles on the backroads and interstates and found it to be a fast and comfortable cruiser. Bumps are easily soaked up, and at speeds above the legal limit this car is smooth and stable.

One of those showed up at a Cars and Coffee a month or so ago.  The guy was kind of shocked when I came over and started drooling over it.

Hmmmm.  This or the Jeep SRT Trackhawk for about the same coin, maybe less for the Jeep?  But who's counting when you're in 6 figures?
