Mercedes E 63 AMG vs Icon Derelict
This episode of Head 2 Head sees Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman comparing two heavy-hitting estates from opposite ends of the spectrum: Germany’s Mercedes E 63 AMG and the Icon Derelict from Jonathan Ward’s Los Angeles workshop.

The Derelict began life back in 1952 as a humble Chrysler Town and Country wagon, but is now propelled by a 6.1-litre V8 powerplant developing 343 kW (460 hp) and 610 of torque, enough for a 0-100 km/h time of just over five seconds, while the Mercedes is a totally different kettle of fish.

Apart from an inability to give you Tetanus, it will set you back almost $30,000 less than the Derelict and, being a 4MATIC S-Model, it has a 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8 producing 430 kW (585 hp) and 800 Nm, and can crack 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds.
