Mercedes E63 AMG Wagon pitted against Icon Derelict

Filed under: , , , , ,

Motor Trend

Jonny Lieberman hates his job. And who wouldn't, we ask you? Hanging out at racetracks, driving two of the very coolest high-performance station wagons on the planet and, of course, dressing up funny for nobody's benefit but yours, Internet Denizen. Sounds terrible, right?

Seriously, though, we tend to get a bit jealous when we watch any new episode of Head 2 Head from Motor Trend, let alone when the cars being compared are the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S 4Matic Wagon, and the 1952 Chrysler Town & Country Custom Wagon-based Icon Derelict. (Yeah, these cars have to be station wagons just to haul along those names.) The big-body Benz rocks all-wheel drive and is quicker to 60 miles per hour in than a Shelby GT500; the Icon hides a 6.1-liter Hemi V8 under bodywork that looks deliciously like a dog's breakfast. Just scroll down and hit the button, you know this one is worth your 16 minutes.

Icon Derelict DeSoto cools its heels in Jay Leno’s Garage

Icon Derelict DeSoto on Jay Leno's Garage

Of all the shops turning out cool hardware these days, few get us as excited as Icon. And while their off-road beasts are heart-stopping in their execution and attention to detail, it's the company's Derelict line that really gets us grinning. Icon founder Jonathon Ward swung by Jay Leno's Garage to show off his latest creation: a 1952 Chrysler/DeSoto wagon with modern bones underneath. Ward started with a Chrysler Town and Country wagon before swapping over a DeSoto front clip for a little more style. The old Hemi V8 was then ditched for a 2010 6.1-liter fuel-injected lump, though Icon kept the original valve covers in order to keep the engine bay looking as period as possible.

As with all Derelicts, there's little on the underside of the '52 that hasn't been re-engineered by the Icon team. The car uses a complete modern running gear and a set of six-piston Wilwood brakes bring the family hauler down from speed. Check it out on the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage below.
