The new Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake range now has its flagship, with the unveiling this week of the top-shelf AMG model.

As with its sedan stablemate, the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake is powered by Merc's new bi-turbo 5.5 litre V8 engine, producing 386kW and 700Nm of torque.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through the familiar AMG SpeedShift MCT seven-speed automatic sports transmission.

Despite its wagonesque form, the AMG-enhanced Shooting Brake is no slower than its four-door counterpart, listing the same 4.4 second 0-100km/h time.

AMG's Performance Package is also available, boosting output to 410kW/800Nm and shaving a tenth of a second from its (official) sprint to 100km/h.

In Europe, fuel consumption figures are listed at 10.1 l/100km.

Driving enhancements include AMG Ride Control sports susspension, with steel suspension struts up front and air struts at the rear, offering automatic level control.

There's also an electronically controlled damper system, with Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus modes.

On the styling front, the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake adds the usual enhancements, including a sports body kit and aero package, 19-inch alloy wheels, pumped front guards to suit a 56mm wider track, and a quad exhaust tip arrangement.

Inside, you'll find sports seats, AMG flat-bottom steering wheel, gloss black highlights and AMG instruments.



The CLS Shooting Brake range will hit Australia in November or December this year.

Speaking with TMR today, Mercedes-Benz Australia Senior Manager for Corporate Communications, David McCarthy, said that local engines and specifications are still to be decided.

"We'll definitely get the AMG model when it's available, but we're working through all of the details now," Mr McCarthy said.
