New Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake launched

The new AMG high-performance vehicle is the exciting enhancement of an innovative vehicle concept.
Synonymous with the dynamism which is typical of AMG are features such as the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine with a power output range of from 525 hp to 557 hp, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission and the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension.

In addition to attractive optional extras from the AMG Performance Studio to enhance the driving dynamics even further, another unique highlight is the designo wooden luggage compartment floor.

According to Ola Källenius, chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: "After the successes of the CLS 55 AMG and CLS 63 AMG, with the new CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake we are consistently pursuing the philosophy of offering our customers unrivalled, exciting high-performance cars. The CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake is establishing a completely new, small and select niche sector, and is expected to delight new customers just as much as it will existing AMG enthusiasts. The combination of performance, style and usability is unique."

The eight-cylinder engine offers power output and torque levels of 525 hp and 700 Nm respectively.

In conjunction with the Edition 1 these figures are pushed to 557 hp and 800 Nm. Both variants offer accelerating from zero to 62 mph in 4.4 and 4.3 seconds respectively, and the top speed is 155 mph (electronically limited).

The market launches of the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake will commence in November 2012. Spec and pricing still to be confirmed.
