The top-of-the-range Mercedes-AMG CLS 63 S is fitted with all the finest AMG equipment, including AMG bodystyling, 19" AMG alloy wheels in matt titanium grey with red brake calipers and AMG sports exhaust system which has two S Model chrome twin tailpipes, while the boot is adorned with ‘S Model’ lettering. Inside, AMG PASSION leather upholstery plus black piano lacquer trim and the AMG performance steering wheel create a sophisticated, sporty atmosphere.
Love at first sound. That’s what happens when you fire up the AMG 5.5 litre V8 biturbo engine. The CLS 63 AMG S Shooting Brake can sprint from 0-62 mph in as little as 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 155 mph. An outstanding figure for a vehicle with Estate car practicality.
But while you expect brutal acceleration from an AMG model, what might surprise you is the car’s impressive efficiency. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission features ECO start/stop coupled with other energy-saving measures such as intelligent alternator management. These contribute to combined fuel consumption figures of around 28 mpg. For a vehicle with sports car performance, that’s almost unheard of.
Slide behind the AMG performance steering wheel, with its flat-rimmed design and aluminium gearshift paddles, and you know you’re in for a special driving experience filled with distinctive style and flawless quality. Throughout the interior, dramatic sports styling is complemented by exceptional attention to detail and the finest quality materials.
Hallmark AMG elements include the iconic AMG DRIVE UNIT with E-SELECT shift lever, and the AMG instrument cluster with AMG menu and RACETIMER function. Ergonomic, highly supportive AMG sports seats are upholstered in nappa leather and include the Memory package and Multi-Contour Seat package for driver and front seat passenger.
AMG have done it again. The CLS 63 AMG S Shooting Brake is a triumph of high-performance styling, effortlessly blending the familiar AMG muscle and menace with Mercedes-Benz elegance and dynamism.
Standout features include the reworked front section with single-louvre radiator grille, AMG front apron and large air intakes housing special LED daytime running lights. The signature ‘V8 BITURBO’ logo adorns the front wings, just behind widened front wheel arches.
At the rear, there’s a diffusor-style AMG apron with integrated fog lamp and the distinctive AMG sports exhaust system, featuring chromed twin tailpipes at either side. Exclusive 19” AMG 10-spoke Alloy wheels in titanium grey provide the finishing touch to this AMG model, finalising a design that stirs the soul.Text here ...
An array of innovative safety technologies includes the PRE-SAFE® anticipatory safety system, which anticipates dangers and initiates a series of pre-emptive measures before a potential accident occurs.
Available as an option is Speed Limit and Traffic Sign Assist, which uses integrated cameras at the front of the vehicle to monitor speed limit signs and keep you informed. Ideal for journeys where speed limits change frequently, it also warns you if you’re exceeding the current limit.
Other systems range from ATTENTION ASSIST, which alerts you if you’re becoming drowsy at the wheel, to the NECK-PRO adjustable front head restraints. Options include the Driving Assistance Package with Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist.
With their motorsport heritage, AMG vehicles are renowned for sensational handling and the CLS 63 AMG S Shooting Brake is no exception. Lateral dynamics are exceptional thanks to the AMG sports suspension’s wider front axle, while adjustable damping and self-levelling rear air suspension strike the perfect balance between comfort and agility.
Fitted as standard, the COMAND Online system ensures every moment in the CLS 63 AMG S Shooting Brake is well spent.
Entertainment features include a CD/DVD player and a SD card slot that lets you build up an on-board library of your favourite music, which is perfect for the use of the Harman Kardon® Logic 7® surround sound system that will accommodate to all of your audio needs.
