Shortly after the German car manufacturer unveiled its 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake, news of a high-performance version of the car was leaked on the internet. The company says of the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake, “In essence it represents an unprecedented version of a sports car with five seats and a large tailgate.” Powered by a 5.5 liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, the car channels 525 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque through its rear wheels. An optional Performance Package increases output to 550 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. Mated to an AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed sport transmission, the car should make 0-60 mph runs in the low 4.0-second bracket and achieve a limited top speed of 155 mph.
