One of the final galleries we have to show you from Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012 contains pictures of the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake Mule. Mercedes-Benz presented the CLS Shooting Brake on Sunday at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. On the same day, the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake development mule took part in the hill climb event!
The Mercedes CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake uses the same drivetrain as its four-door sports-coupe sibling, the CLS 63 AMG. Thus the car will be powered by a 5.5 liter V8 biturbo engine which offers 525 horsepower and 700Nm of torque. This should enable the Shooting Brake to accelerate from standstill to 100km/h in approximately 4.5 seconds, while its top speed will be limited at 250km/h.
It is expected that the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake will be unveiled at the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim later this month. Sales of the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake will start this Autumn, shortly after the market introduction of the regular version.
