It was just over a week ago we brought you news of Mercedes-Benz delectable new CLS Shooting Brake. The swooping lines of this estate set it apart from competitors in the visuals department. However, since it was announced we have all been asking the same question… How long until AMG get their devilish hands on it? It turns out not long at all.
So here it is. The Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake. Enhancing that brilliant architecture and reinforcing it with some muscular bonnet lines, this car brings both power and elegance together. Lurking under the bonnet is a 5.5 litre twin-turbo V8 with 525BHP or 557BHP at its disposal. The power split is due to the more powerful limited production “Edition 1” model that packs more ponies. 0-62MPH in the standard car comes within 4.4 seconds and the Edition 1 clocks in at 4.3 seconds. The swapping of cogs is left to Merc’s usual 7 speed AMG MCT gearbox.
