Video: 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake shows up

Article by Christian A., on July 3, 2012

A video of Mercedes’ 2013 CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake has been released online, giving consumers an idea of how the car will appear before it is introduced this September at the 2012 Paris Auto Show. The Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake, or the AMG version in particular, is proof that a station wagon can be extremely attractive.

It would also be advisable that consumers opt for the performance variant since it’s just too good to pass up. The newest station wagon has a generous array of features. It has a cherry-wood deck in the rear and its interior is lavishly styled (as could be expected from any Mercedes unit).

Its exterior is also well done as its utilitarian shape has been minimized. US fans are expected to be more than a little upset that this model would only be available in Europe.

This vehicle is powered by Mercedes’ throaty 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 that can deliver 525 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Choosing the performance package increases this output to 550 hp and 590 lb-ft.

The AMG version offers improved handling due to its adaptive suspension dampening system, a custom front axle arrangement and electro-hydraulic steering that are designed for the high-end version.

There are three driving modes available. It is also offered with the AMG SpeedShift seven-speed automatic -- sport, manual, and controlled efficiency. This last option softens the throttle and uses an engine start/stop system to boost fuel efficiency.
