The next generation CLS-Class Mercedes will not only bring a Shooting Brake version, but also an AMG version. And while we have seen many spy shots of the standard version, the AMG version was caught testing for the first time. It will go on sale in 2011 and will compete with the Porsche Panamera Turbo, Aston Martin Rapide, and the future Audi S7.

The 2011 CLS 63 AMG will be powered by a 6.3-liter V8 engine delivering a total of 525 hp mated to a Speedshift MCT 7-speed gearbox. It will be distinguished by a standard CLS by new sport, improved suspension, braking and aerodynamic touches, and 18" wheels.

This is sure to deliver an impressive performance against its main competitors listed above. Specs for the future Audi S7 are limited, but the Mercedes CLS 63 AMG’s power could surely outrank the 300-500hp found in the Porsche Panamera Turbo and the 470hp found in the Aston Martin Rapide. We can’t wait to the results of this matchup when the CLS 63 AMG hits the streets.

Many are telling me that CLS 63 has a better suspension and it’s aero dynamic capabilities are pretty impressive.

The most stupid thing about this car is the optional 30bhp. People who buy this car want to go fast and therefore want the horsepower. I hate how standard specs are optional.

I can see the outline on the bumpers & it might have an E class tail lights, s63 diffuser & those front LED lights. Are those extra tail lights on the diffuser & the whole car looks better at the moment.

Most of the Benz car are tweak first by AMG before distributing to the dealers.

Surprisingly neat and elegant! They’ve totally revamped the looks and feels of the CLS 63. Well, of course, it was tweak by AMG again so what do you expect?
