Spy Shots: Mercedes CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake caught testing with less camo

Mercedes CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake

After revealing the CLS Shooting Break Concept at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show, Mercedes officially confirmed that a production version would follow in the coming years and as is typical, every Mercedes model will also get an AMG version. Today, we have a series of new spy shots of the production ready prototypes, wearing only minimal camouflage.

The new CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake will keep almost all of the sleek lines of the "CLS Shooting Break Concept," but it will get a more aggressive front fascia, sportier wheels and tires, bigger brakes, and a quad tip exhaust.

While the standard version will be powered by a 402 HP 4.6 liter, twin-turbo V8 engine, the AMG version will be powered by a 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine that delivers 525 HP and 516 lb-ft of torque. It will be mated to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission and Controlled Efficiency stop/start function.

An official debut for the Mercedes CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake will be made later in 2012.

I hope that what’s under the camo is actually unique. The revealed parts are unappealing as usual.

This turns out to be better than expected! I thought I wouldn’t like it, but then its exterior has captivated my liking!

I’m quite disappointed that Mercedes didn’t do anything unique this time to it. Then again, it hasn’t been fully unveiled so I’ll have to see.

I think it has more to show underneath that little camouflaged part. Aside from that, I find its wheels and twin exhaust pipes interesting.

The specifications are good; however, I don’t think I will like its full appearance. From the less camouflage, I doubt hat the covered parts will highly affect my perspective.
