Artist’s Rendering of the Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake

The Mercedes-Benz CLA has just recently entered production, with the Kecskemet, Hungary plant celebrating Job #1, the first CLA unit to be finished. Still, it seems that automotive enthusiasts just can’t help keep wondering about what the future holds for this new compact sedan model. Here’s a rendering for a possible Shooting Brake variant for the CLA, made possible by the skilled hands of one Theophilus Chin. Given that the CLA is actually a bit longer than the C-Class, it won’t be too farfetched to think that the new model will be given an estate version. Chin makes a good case with this rendering, so if you want a taste… Continue Reading »

Brabus Presents Its CLS Shooting Brake

The CLS Shooting Brake has only been recently released and already, premium Mercedes tuner Brabus has released its version.  In its most powerful version, Brabus has seen to upgrade the 5.5 liter’s output to almost 620 horsepower with a corresponding bump in torque to 737 foot-pounds. This was primarily done with a revised ECU and charge air cooler. Consequently, maximum velocity in this speed-delimited car is 320 km/hr or almost 200 miles per hour.  To complement this performance, Brabus has partnered with Bilstein in developing a suspension kit that offers revised rates to take advantage of the higher engine output. True to form, Brabus has equipped the CLS Shooting Brake… Continue Reading »

2013 Mercedes-Benz Shooting Brake Spotted, Practically Unshrouded

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake model has been spotted in the wild, practically without any camouflage to mask the car’s design from the public. It appears very much like the non-AMG version that was spotted a while back at the Nurburgring. Still, we all know that what’s most important about this variant is the 5.5L twin-turbo V8 engine beneath its hood. With this surprise appearance of the upcoming CLS 63, people can expect only minor cosmetic revisions on the final model that reaches showrooms. It’s got the CLS line’s characteristic flair, with its wide wheel arches, quad exhausts, aggressive bumper design up front, and large alloy wheels…. Continue Reading »

CLS Shooting Brake Caught At The Ring

Seen testing recently at the Nurburgring is the estate version of the groundbreaking CLS design that represented a fresh wave of thinking for Mercedes-Benz. Although it has been called a shooting brake, it strictly is not in the traditional form of the body style that was representative of the shape some decades back. At any rate, it does conform to the family shape of the CLS as evidenced by the latest set of pictures. By testing it at the Nurburgring, Mercedes is in fact previewing the model to the public. The carmaker would have known that the legions of photographers at the famous track would be sure to take pictures… Continue Reading »

CLS Shooting Brake Spied Testing

Looking very much like the renderings that made it all over the net last year, Mercedes-Benz’s CLS Shooting Brake as been caught testing in the wild. As shooting brakes go, Mercedes’ CLS is stretching the description out a bit, but Estate seems a bit too dated for the radical 4-door coupe that was met with much acclaim when it was introduced. At any rate, the appearance of CLS Shooting Brake bodes well for fans of the rakish design introduced by the CLS coupe. Since the CLS profile calls for a sloping back, Mercedes also seems to have followed that design imperative to the shooting brake variant. Although this does limit… Continue Reading »

Although recent spy shots of the touring-like CLS have made it online, the tasty stuff has been covered, leaving a lot to the imagination.

CLC Shooting Brake Approved By Mercedes Board

As part of a revival in seemingly abandoned body styles, Mercedes-Benz Chairman Dieter Zetsche has approved another body variant in the mold of a shooting brake. This second variant will accompany the CLS shooting brake and is based on the also new and upcoming CLC, a model based on the new platform that will form the basis for the revised A-Class and B-Class models. Unlike the CLS, the CLC Shooting Brake will feature a heavily angled tailgate, but will be far from the vertical looks of Mercedes estates. Expected powertrains will be the fours currently under development, with the gasoline variants featuring direct injection. Mated to the automatic transmissions will… Continue Reading »
