Mercedes-Benz has always been a pioneer in the automotive industry. Many groundbreaking ideas that are still used today, came from Stuttgart, like the crumble zones or the car itself, actually. This time they tried to rediscover the concept of performance station wagon, with the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake. Not much different from the original concept, the CS Shooting Brake is a weird, yet beautiful to most people, car. What it even more weird, is that it can be had with AMG’s 557hp V8, a limited slip rear differential and a seven-speed paddle-shifted gearbox.
Chris Harris tries to find the purpose of this car. With a boot space from 590 liters to 1,550 liters, it will surely provide a great experience to your luggage, but then, who needs to transport luggage that fast? Mr. Harris is a pure delight in the above video, in his quest to define whether this car is just supposed to fill a small niche, or is a true cult vehicle. Don’t miss it!
