CLS-Shooting-Brake-3.jpg

The Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake will be a turbo charged station wagon with CLS style and AMG performance. 

Our spy photos show the AMG variant of the previously seen CLS shooting brake, and it looks a little meaner than its more conventional cousin. The AMG will likely be modeled closely to the CLS63 AMG and run with a twin turbo 5.5L V8, making 518 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Also look for an AMG performance package that will up the thrust to around 550 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.

The AMG version receives quad exhaust tips, bigger brakes, sportier wheels and aggressive front fascia to set it apart.

The original Mercedes-Benz Shooting Brake Concept debuted at the 2010 Bejing Auto Show, and the model we see in our photos keeps many of the same lines as the concept.
