Mercedes-Benz has officially revealed the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake. Have a look!
This means power will come from a 5.5-liter bi-turbocharged V8 producing 530hp (537PS) at 5,500 rpm and 590 lb-ft (800Nm) from 2,000 to 4,500 rpm in standard trim with an optional Performance Package boosting these numbers to 556bhp (564PS) and 664 lb-ft (900Nm) respectively.
All that thrust will be channeled to the rear wheels through AMG’s seven-speed MCT gearbox.
Comparing the performance numbers of the sedan with the Shooting Brake, we see that in the 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint, the latter is between 0.6 seconds (CLS 350) and 0.1 seconds (CLS 500) slower than the former, depending on the engine.
Taking into consideration these numbers and knowing that the CLS 63 AMG Sedan with and without the Performance Package accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.3 and 4.4 seconds respectively, the Shooting Brake should be 0.1 to 0.2 seconds slower.
