There’s a good chance Americans will never see the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake on their soil any time soon, which is tragic considering the magic Mercedes-Benz tuner Brabus has worked on the luxury wagon.

As is typical with the majority of the tuning packages from Brabus, there’s a fine collection of power upgrades, aesthetics, and aerodynamic accessories to choose from. Wheels up to 20 inches in diameter complement various interior options, while engine performance can be enhanced to 619 hp and an incredible 737 lb-ft of torque on the CLS 63 AMG.

For the CLS 250 and 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY diesel models and the CLS 350 and 500 BlueEFFICIENCY, Brabus offers aerodynamic enhancements that have been wind-tunnel tested. Those upgrades include a new front spoiler, front bumper attachments, integrated LED daytime running lights, sport fenders, and side skirts with integrated entrance lights.

For those CLS owners with the AMG sport package, the tuner offers a front spoiler lip attachment that can further be enhanced by an additional front spoiler and fender attachments. Suspension options are also available, developed jointly with experienced manufacturer Bilstein. The lineup consists of sport springs to lowering modules for the semi-active AIRMATIC air suspension.

A sport exhaust with butterfly valve is available for the CLS Shooting Brake from Brabus also.
