It's the original four-door coupé -- and now, the CLS is back for its

Mercedes CLS 500 Shooting Brake AMG Pack
2013 Mercedes CLS 500 4MATIC Shooting Brake AMG Pack
The CLS Shooting Brake is available with four different engine variants --
two diesel engines and two petrol engines. Features common to all engines
include the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission as well as the ECO
start/stop function. In addition, two models are available with all-wheel
drive: the CLS 350 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY and the CLS 500 4MATIC
The entry-level model is the CLS 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY producing 150 kW
(204 hp). Combined fuel consumption is 5.3 litres of diesel per 100
kilometres, an excellent level for this performance class and equivalent to
CO2 emissions of 139 grams per kilometre. Coming in above this are the two
six-cylinder models: the CLS 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY producing 195 kW (265
hp) and the CLS 350 BlueEFFICIENCY producing 225 kW (306 hp). The
top-of-the-range model is the CLS 500 BlueEFFICIENCY with a V8 biturbo engine producing 300 kW (408 hp).
The proportions of the CLS Shooting Brake are surprising but clearly those
of a coupé, and create a basic stance which makes it look ready for the
off: the long bonnet, narrow-look windows with frameless side windows, and
dynamic roof sloping back towards the rear. It is only when taking a second
look that it becomes clear that the Shooting Break actually has five doors
and offers "more" in terms of function.
No-one likes to have to compromise: even when the focus is not on the
practical elements of the design of the Shooting Brake (length x width x
height: 4956 x 1881 x 1413 mm), the new CLS model still has some trump
cards up its sleeve. With a load volume of between 590 and 1550 litres, the
luggage compartment offers a lot of room despite the flat, sporty lines of
the roof, and is easy to use thanks to the automatically opening tailgate
fitted as standard. A load compartment cover also protects luggage from
The standard air suspension at the rear helps to ensure optimum road
holding at all times. For additional flexibility, the rear seat backrests
can be folded down from the luggage compartment as standard. The rear seats
themselves provide room for three people, with individual seats on the
outsides and a third seat in the middle. The three saddle-type head
restraints on the rear seats barely affect the view towards the rear, and
can be lowered at the touch of a button by the driver. An optional trailer
coupling is also available.
It's all in a name: the origins of the name "Shooting Break"
Break, or the homonym Brake, was the name once given to carriages used to
"break" in wild horses and also to restrict (or "brake") their urge to
move, so that they could be put to use as work horses. Since the carts
could easily be broken as part of this process, people tended not to use
ones which they may have urgently needed for other purposes. Where
necessary, "Brakes" were often fitted out with variable bodies, which were
only really used to carry along anything that may have been necessary for
the hunt, for example. Any such vehicle which was used when going out
shooting was called a Shooting Brake or Shooting Break. Motorised Shooting
Brakes were popular in England in the 60s and 70s -- exclusive two-door
sports cars, which combined the luxury and style of a coupé with a larger
load compartment and large tailgate.

2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe (C217) Start Up, Exhaust, Test Drive, and In Depth Review
We had the chance to drive the all new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC
Coupe (C217)for two days in the surroundings of Pisa and Florence in Italy.
Here is our In Depth Review of the newest Mercedes-Benz S-Class creation,
the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG (V222). We enjoyed our test drive with the
2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe (C217) , we hope you will like our
video review as well. Make sure you don't miss the Start Up and the Exhaust sound.
The new S 63 AMG Coupé is the latest dream car to augment the Mercedes-AMG
model range. Exciting lines underpin this two-door model's design.
Dominance and sensual purity combine to lend the vehicle irresistible
presence and effortlessly superior sportiness. Equally impressive is the
combination of high driving dynamics, ambitious lightweight construction
and groundbreaking efficiency. As the most powerful member of the
BlueDIRECT engine family, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine is a paragon of poise and assurance.
Boasting an output of 430 kW (585 hp) and 900 Nm of torque, the S 63 AMG
Coupé delivers exceptional performance with remarkably low fuel
consumption. Performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive is available
as an option. And there is a world first in the shape of the curve tilting
function, part of the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system, to further
enhance both driving pleasure and comfort.

As with the transmission, customers also get a choice when it comes to the
AMG sports suspension: the rear-wheel-drive S 63 AMG Coupé is equipped
with MAGIC BODY CONTROL, while the all-wheel-drive version of the two-door
model features the full air-suspension system AIRMATIC with the adaptive
damping system ADS PLUS. Specific front axle kinematics -- including higher
camber, a larger anti-roll bar and a stiffer subframe carrier on the rear
axle -- have been developed exclusively for the S 63 AMG Coupé 4MATIC.
These measures enhance the vehicle's agility when driving dynamically.
