The first photo and video of the Mercedes CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake, as well as complete details, have made their way to the web. This will more than likely mean that we will have a complete photo gallery for you direct from Mercedes shortly.
As we had previously speculated, the CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake takes on the same figures as its four-door coupe sibling. The shooting brake is propelled by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 which produces 557 PS (410 kW / 550 bhp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque with the AMG Performance package while the standard engine configuration is rated at 525 PS (386 kW / 518 bhp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. Running 0-62 mph in 4.4 seconds with a top speed that is electronically limited to 155 mph, you can’t ask for much more from a souped up station wagon. The engine of the high-performance CLS63 Shooting Brake is mated to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed transmission.
For lower fuel consumption, Mercedes equipped the shooting brake with ECO Start-Stop function and is rated to 14.0 liters / 100 km fuel consumption in the city, with a 7.8 liters / 100 km fuel economy on the highway and with 10.1 liters / 100 km in the combined cycle. The CO2 emissions are rated at 235 g/km.
We will no doubt have a complete photo gallery and full press release for you shortly, but for now enjoy the video courtesy of our good German friends at MB Passion.
